SoftStep 2, Midi Expander, MacBook Pro OS X 9, latest Editors.
Further update on EV-5 external expression pedal:
After 2 days use, the EV-5 started the same flurry of CCs activity at full pedal throw I reported earlier using a 250k expression pedal. I exchanged the EV-5 for a new replacement, same behavior.
This appears to be an issue related to having the SS2 and midi expander connected to my Mac thru SS2 -> midi expander and SS2 -> Mac via usb when running the advanced editor in Hosted or Standalone mode - if I use the SS2 with midi expander powered by ac adapter without Mac connection, no CCs flurry and expression pedal works fine.
When I bought the SS2 a couple of weeks ago, I had intended to use it standalone with midi expander and no computer connection, making all midi connections thru the expander. Unfortunately I can't do that until the bug described in "Midi ch 16 PC preset selection locks up in standalone" (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2462#p8980
) is fixed via a software update. I am respectfully requesting that this bug be fixed as soon as possible so that I can get full intended usage from my SoftStep 2.
