Re: Softstep's led behaviour

Thank you for the feedback, Luis.
I spent a few hours with the advance editor and I discovered more on how to set up a modline for this purpose.
You should initialize the preset with "always" or "once" command, set the Value to 1, send the right CC# for led on/led off (see the manual) and set the led behaviour at your will.

Having a visual feedback on the footcontroller rather than the laptop is a big step, IMMO.
I'm setting up 
- red lights for Mobius fuctions affecting the loop lenght (rec, ovd, multiply, divide, replace, substitute) - red blinking lights for UNDO
- orange lights for the scripts (this can be achieved mixing the red and green lights)
- green lights for common Mobius commands (next track, next loop, reverse...)

Next step is to have a led lights show to perform :-)

Yes fabio i went through this  through skype with one of the support guys from Sofstep
Unfortunatley you have to do it through the advance sofstep editor,i was also having problems with the exp pedal not reacting properly to the values
But at the end i stucked to the normal editor, i didnt have the patience to reprogram every single preset with the advanced editor and the lights werent that important for what i wanted to do which was having the leds toggle for some functions and act momentary for some ESP style sus functions etc.,maybe someday when i have more time:-)
But is all doable yes!
