Re: SoftStep prests

Many thanks, Keith. As for me this was the last part of missing
information and I can now see that SoftStep will be excellent for me.
SoftStep totally owns the Behringer FCB1010. People - let's bring
gasoline and fry all our old FCB's on stage at Rick's loop fest in
October! That would be  awesome.... the ultimate way to celebrate the
birth of The Softstep.
