Re: Ableton & SS2 Nav L<>R

Unfortunately this seems to be KMI current practice... I (almost 2 years gone by now: http://forum.keithmcmillen.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2524), as well as others, have pointed some bugs with softstep's firmware before . Some of them inclusively relate to functions that KMI says softstep is able...

Re: softstep-1 2.0 editor issues

my first softstep 1 had that behaviour after a couple of months... turning on/off unexpectadely... (but keeping leds on) Turns out it was the USB connector that was broken, so it was only powering up, but not sending data. fortunately it was on warrany and I changed to a softstep 2 that, so far, has...

Re: SS2 for Looping in Live: Toggle/LED for Rec/Overdub/Play

Right mocker ;) And if you use the midi chart from the following link, instead of the official chart printed in the manual, you have access to a third led color (orange), which happens to be the exact color from ableton's live looper overdub: http://forum.keithmcmillen.com/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=5...

Re: SoftStep: Toggle with proper LED status in Ableton

I agree withMocker about bomer midi. Great piece of software that integrates beatifully with the softstep. I also advise you to take a look at the midi chart in the following thread: http://forum.keithmcmillen.com/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=530 KML doesn't seem to support it (don't know why, because i...

Re: Problem with Ableton Midi mapping and the Softstep

I think I had a similar issue. Ableton listens for all the sended midi commands and only maps one of them. If you have more than one modline in the softstep editor per key, and each modline is sending a different midi command, than mapping Ableton could be tricky. You could try the following workaro...

Re: Pre-sales questions

For complex switchings I've found that is best/easier to use a software named Bome's midi translator, which works flawlessly with softstep. Together they can do whatever you want. Answering specifically your question (I also do play the guitar) I have a patch in softstep/bome midi that works the fol...

Just fix all known bugs :)

Yes, that's all I want. I can truly understand that KMI doesn't feel the need, for the moment, of developing new software for the softstep, or to introduce new features. I can live well with that. When I bought the softstep I knew what it could do, and I knew those limitations. So that was an inform...

Re: SoftStep changing scenes by itself

I find softstep to be a very nice piece of gear with a terrible software... Unfortunately KMI doesn't seem too interested in sorting it out... even the bugs, wich in my opinion is totally unnaceptable... but that's their call. Although I make a completely different use of it as you (I use it for pla...

Re: external led control in hosted mode

Thanks for the reply, and sorry if my previous post sounded rude. Just the frustration of a no solution for my issue. Now, although i appreciate your answer, unfortunately for me that ain't enough. Opposite to you, i think that what what i'm looking for is a very basic and well document feature. Ext...

Re: external led control in hosted mode

Ok... just found in the forum a topic that describes the exact same issues I'm having http://forum.keithmcmillen.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2462 So apparently this is a bug in the software... that in practice, at least for me, makes the midi expander useless. I don´t want to connect the softstep d...
