I am getting the VPC1 midi controller piano. It is super awesome as a piano, bit it is missing a pitchbend wheel. I have trying to find alternatives and one of the things I would like to try is a pitch wheel controlled by my foot. I know the softstep technically can do it but in practice does it work well? or is the 12 step a better option? I'm going to ask in the 12step forum as well.
