Softstep editors won't load presets

I'm trying to set up a mac mini to run without a screen and running into a few issues. 1) neither the advanced or the basic editor will boot up with presets. I see that the presets are now stored inside the app itself, but for some reason with build 2.03 on OS 10.12.1 every time I boot up either edi...

Re: pedal in useless?

I bought it just over a week ago and the store has a 30 day return police, and I'm a pretty good customer. So it'll go back to the store, I'll send them a note about this issue and maybe they will send it back to you. I'm using it on a show that has a short run, we preview tomorrow and close Sunday....

Re: pedal in useless?

Its not the adapter, I have another 1/4" to 1/8" in my kit and it didn't work with that either.
Exactly the same issue with the Moog into my adapter as with the softstep adapter.

That means it must be the softstep, then I assume.

Re: pedal in useless?

Yes, as noted above. Tried Boss EV5 with attached chord. Moog expression pedal with two different chords and adapters. volume pedal with 2 1/4" to 1/8" chord (just in case, I know its not supposed to work). Each pedal has the same result. Nothing registered until 50% of the pedal run, but ...

Re: pedal in useless?

Just reset the calibration and its the same issue.
First cc registered happens halfway up the pedal.

Re: pedal in useless?

Yes, the global sensitivity affects the expression pedal sensitivity, in an adverse way. Reset the sensitivity and don't change it. Reset it and it didn't help. How about not calibrating? Will try that, but I don't expect it to help as the calibration curves are pretty subtle. What does your calibr...

Re: pedal in useless?

Tried resetting the sensitivity and recalibrating.
Same issue.

Does the global sensitivity affect the pedal sensitivity?
Is there no other way to do it?

Its still unusable like this.

Tried three pedals, all work with a logidy pedal, none work with the softstep.

I've been failing at being able to use pressure latch as a usable show dependable footpedal so today brought in a couple of expression pedals to try, but the softstep doesn't track them well enough to use. Tried: moog expression roland ev5 boss volume Using all three the softstep doesn't track the l...

Re: Pressure latch?

I've been running the softstep in Hosted mode, watching both the parameters on the pedal and the fader moves in Live and still haven't found a setting that works 100% for me. I can get fairly good results using pressure live, but pressure latch is problematic. I can't reliably get the fader to move ...

Re: Pressure latch?

I'm getting it to work better now, using these settings as a start. http://forum.keithmcmillen.com/download/file.php?id=301&mode=view With the softstep v1 I didn't need to have the fast trigger step in the programming, still figuring out what that does and how to run it. Now I've put in an offse...
