Re: Foot Controllers.

It's good that you don't need the XY axis of the softstep, as it's near-useless.

Thanks for that perspective Bill. The 12 step looks pretty good for now. I just need 8 buttons for loop start/stop/record, one for start/stop all, one to erase all, one to toggle effects on and off and one to tap tempo. (something like that) I don't really need the x,y axis of the soft step( I also may have a 64 button controller up at finger level)

Gordius sounds amazing as a donut!

Im currently using a McMillen 12 step, for running Mobius, I chose it over the Soft step because it was more simple and strait forward,  doing the things I needed it to  for Mobius, note on-off commands and a cc _expression_ port,  I wish it had  two _expression_ ports but I like its size,  light weight, and noise free switching, The feel is something I had to get used to, but feel comfortable with now, and actually prefer to the more hair trigger Gordius switches,which make mechanical noise unless you press very lightly.. I still have a Gordius Little Giant, which is the deepest midi foot controller on the planet,  it like what Homer Simpson said about donuts…"is there anything they can't do?" . Its also built like  a tank , way more rugged than the McMillen stuff.  Ive had one 12 step go down on me, a problem in the main board, but it was under warranty and they provided a replacement. Time will tell if Ill need to go back to using the Gordius, which I will never sell as its built the way things used to be built….to last.
