Re: Will MIDI Expansion box work with other "things"

Interesting question! I'd like to know too.

Edit: To restate the question, will the MIDI Expander work with any class compliant USB MIDI device to provide MIDI I/O ports?

Re: Keyworx and Softstep in Ableton.

You don't need Keyworx at all to do what you want in Abelton Live. Check out this custom MIDI Remote Script, I am pretty sure it will allow you to do everything you want.

Re: Expression pedals: what ya got? how's it working?

I agree with soundog. Don't KMI have a list of known working pedals? I looked around the website and SoftStep manual but I can't find anything. I don't have an expression pedal but I'd like to get one for plugging into the SoftStep and I'd like to know what my choices are. At the very least KMI coul...

SoftStep App Crashing A Lot on Win7 64bit

Tonight is the first time I've really sat down and tried to spend some time with my new SoftStep. Unfortunately the SoftStep App software has been extremely unstable for me. Over the last couple of hours it has crashed more than 10 times. In fact it is not an exaggeration to say that I've spent more...

Re: windows 7 and softstep software 1.1

I am on Win7 64 bit. I did not experience the same application slowness and hanging as you did, but I had another problem where, after a few minutes use, the MIDI Yoke virtual port would just stop transmitting data anymore. The SoftStep app and Ableton Live still work fine, but MIDI Yoke just won't ...

Re: SoftStep application using 1GB of memory

I am on Win7 64-bit with a Quad core 2.6Ghz processor, 4Gb of RAM and a 128Gb SSD system drive. On this system Win7 takes 12 seconds to boot to the desktop. The SoftStep app however takes 45 seconds to load and initialise and takes 880Mb of physical memory (as reported by Windows Resource Monitor). ...

SoftStep App Blocks Ableton Live From Using Some MIDI Ports

Hi All, I'm new here, just got my SoftStep last week. I've immediately hit a bit of an annoyance though. If I launch the SoftStep application before I launch Ableton Live, then the MIDI ports for 2 of my devices cannot be opened by Ableton Live. They show up with an orange highlighted name in the MI...
