SoftStep and K-Bow

I recently bought a K-Bow for my cello and I am having lots of fun creating new music with the bow and software. The K-Bow manual has been very helpful for me to get up and running fairly quickly.
Many of the modules are close to self explanatory. In order to have more hands-free control, I also bought the Soft-Step. Unfortunately, the Soft-Step manual never mentions the K-Bow and I am having difficulty getting the two to interact. There are Youtube videos demonstrating how to connect to other devices with the Soft Step, but none for the K-Bow. Initially, I would like to change presets and scenes using the Soft Step and leave the K-Bow triggers for reverb freeze and other control functions. I would be very appreciative of any simple instructions you could provide to get me hooked up, connected and playing. I have some programming background (C-Sound and some MAX-MSP) but I am primarily a composer/performer. I have a MacBookPro running 10.6.8 with 4gigs of RAM and I am using a MOTU Ultralite.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice you can provide.

I also play cello and have been using the SoftStep to control effects inside Ableton Live, though I do not have a K-Bow. What software do you want the SoftStep to control?
