Re: McMillan 12 step anyone?

I think of the 12-step as a midi keyboard for my feet.  I control everything in my setup with midi notes, so that's perfect for me.  If you need CC you'll have to look elsewhere (or make scripts that change cc values based on how long you press a note, for example).

Alternatively, maybe I offer for trade a barely used SoftStep for a 12 Step in need of new home... Can just use the last two pads as loop switchers I imagine...

Bill, I use the Gordius to drive Echoloop and Mobius, with notes, just fine.

LG is super capable in this regard :)

I can send you my LG file if you like.

For the McMillen users out there - I am *still* crying over the fact that the SoftStep nav pads (diamond config at right) are fairly hard coded - I want to use those to move between loops (east and west) and tracks (north south). But they cannot be programmed to send a note on/note off pair. This renders the SoftStep pretty much useless to me, as i still have to lug around a bunch of extra switching pedals. 

I will offer a brand new puppy to anyone who can solve this problem for me ;)

well the first important thing I learned about Mobius and Echoloop is they both would rather be triggered with midi notes. Ugh! My Gordius Little Giant is set up mostly for PC messages so I'm wondering if any one has used the 12 step? certain features make it more interesting and seemingly more out of the box use-able than the Soft Step for midi note driven software loopers, and possible faster triggering as well, the second column seems to infer that.  but what do I know, I'm just a caveman, your world frightens and angers me….. check out these specs pulled from the site:
