I'm getting it to work better now, using these settings as a start.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 offset of -20 (since that was the lowest value I could get it register with my foot on the pedal) and then put a gain of 1.5 to get it to max out around 0db in Live.
I've also had to relearn the foot moves to use it like this, since you need to hold on your desired value for 50 milliseconds for the fast trigger to lock onto it (if I have that correct in how it happens with it). Again, just using latch pressure worked smoother with the softstep 1, but this works.
The switches are much faster and more reliable now, just have to figure out the programming and footwork to get pressure and x/y to work for me. I'm finding the new button shapes make it harder to use the full range of the button. With V1 you could put your foot down on the button and get the full range, but with V2 if I put my foot on the front or one side it requires a foot move to get the full range. It really feels like two pedals, L 0=63 and R 64-127 and hard to smoothly work across that break.
Makes me wonder about footwear and technique. I've been using the V1 barefoot as the only reliable way to hit the pressure and control it, and am trying that with V2 but its not easy to cover the full pedal. And with the sneakers I've got they seem a bit soft and big to get x/y or even pressure accurately. Might have to bring in a pair of hard soled shoes to try.
Was going to trade in the V1 pedal, but maybe I'll need to keep it for those moves.
