FEATURES TO PLAY BY
SoftStep provides visual feedback from backlit keys, LED indicators and an alphanumeric display. Seeing is controlling.
Complete gestural control. A Smart Fabric layer under each of Key detects foot position, pressure and velocity in real time.
SoftStep is durable by design and has been tested to survive spills, 2-story falls onto concrete, and being run over by a car!
SoftStep 2 is a road-proof multifunction midi foot controller that is a generational leap beyond traditional pedal boards, giving performers complete digital control of any rig from their feet, using pressure and position on 10 gesture-sensitive pads. Through backlighting, LEDs and an alphanumeric display, SoftStep 2 makes control easy by indicating status and active presets.
At 18” and 1.3 pounds, SoftStep 2 travels anywhere in a backpack or gig bag, and it is so rugged it can be thrown onto the stage night after night. SoftStep 2 is easy to use out of the box, with built-in compatibility with all major music software (e.g. Ableton Live). The combination of LED feedback with pads that are both pressure and location sensitive gives today’s performers a centralized control source at the tips of their toes—freeing them from knobs, sliders and awkward pauses.

I traveled with my group, TrioMetrik, for a couple of years and used a tank like foot controller. When I decided to stop financing the airlines, I came up with the idea of a lightweight, powerful, and highly programmable foot controller that could replace pedals and sliders and give me total control and it would fit in my pocket. If you need two hands to play your instrument you need a SoftStep.
