Berkeley, California’s Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI) has a solid reputation for innovation in an industry sometimes known for releasing products that are often just another variation on a common design. The QuNeo is unlike any other pad controller available, the SoftStep takes MIDI foot controllers to the next level, and the 12 Step fills a niche that has been ignored for far too long. All of them weigh in at a pound or less, easily fit into a computer bag with a laptop, are impossibly thin, yet still feel very durable.

Apparently they are.
