BERKELEY, California – December 19, 2013 – Keith McMillen Instruments announces new editors and firmware for its wildly popular SoftStep programmable foot controller.

The new editors feature 8 times faster load time using 500 MB less memory. A new UI makes the Editor easier to use and covers 95% of most user needs. The Advanced Editor is similarly improved providing more features for Hosted and Standalone modes.


New firmware addresses numerous requests and bug fixes including better MSB support for bank change, bend and improved latching performance.


Beta versions for Mac will be available in January, with full releases including Windows support scheduled for end of Q1.
