Of course you have to use Mob as a plug-in in plogue for it to work, but.... :)
I've also found that with the latest firmware, I don't get the raw CCs output, it defaults to a progchange scene. So I have to boot the bloatware first, set an 'INIT' state on the hardware, then shut down the KMI app & boot up plogue. Then it works. Tedious, but...I'm just investigating max/msp runtime to see if any of Tom Swirly's patches would help in this respect.
Apart from not taking 1GB+ of memory, this solution also gives me four functions for each pad - fiddly to use, but versatile.
Ah, just found a more up-to-date (more efficient?) version up there:http://www.plogue.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5733 - it's last one, 'MonoController'

Yes, it's possible, there's a guy on the Mobius forum that made a Bidule group to do something similar. http://www.plogue.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=tV20 I'm pretty sure someone made a Max/MSP patch but I can't find it right now. I had considered writing a little VST plugin to do the MIDI translation but lost interest in it after they fixed standalone mode.

Using MIDI Pipe I've got the standalone CC messages translated to the desired Note... But in still getting loads of pressure data messages... So instead of a clean Note On / Note Off, I'm getting dozens of one or the other, with variable pressure values for each one. It's enough to make me believe its possible, and to indicate that at this point the challenge is in the MIDI translator, rather than the SoftStep.
