RE: FCB1010 with Hardware Sampler?

It's got 13 pads.  The top row are your "black" keys.

I just went to the site to check out the 12 Step. I even perused the FAQs. One question that I was hoping to see was "hey, how can we play all 12 tones of the octave with only 8 footpads?" Clearly I am too stupid to play this thing (sigh). :(

Hey Todd,
I'm sure it works fine, but it negates one of the 12 step's selling points for me: it fits in the 1U drawer I have in my rack case where I keep my mic and cables.  The expander is one more piece of gear that can get damaged when someone trips over it, gets stolen or forgotten somewhere.  All of these scenarios are not merely theoretical in my case...

Sylvain, using the softstep with the midi expander is actually really reliable.  In fact, I never use the softstep software.  I programmed it once, and now plug it into ANY computer and have my presets all available in Standalone mode, works like a charm.  I'm sure it's the same for the 12-step.
