Did you load the --- Softstep specific Axe Fx sysex patch--- in your Axe Fx ?
I don't see that in the list of things you said you did.( no dis, just maybe you missed that?)
It won't work "automatically" without it.
The Softstep AXE "scene" will only work properly with that one Axe Fx "preset" supplied by KMI.I think it loads as Axe preset #16.
( It is really only a template to show you how it works and to guide you in building your own Softstep/Axe presets)
It's in the Softstep V 1.2 "extras" folder.The internal controllers have to be set up properly in the Axe as well.There's a "read me" file in there too that might help,if you haven't seen it.
I tried to paste all of the above here, but for whatever reason, on this forum it wouldn't paste.
It's here anyway, in V1.2 download: http://www.keithmcmillen.com/softstep/downloads/
> Dirk, there actually is a "scene" for the Axe (and other hardware units:Eleven Rack, Eventide,etc.)available in there for the Softstep as well.
>Bergerbrain,you can also use controller info from the other hardware "preprogrammed" scenes using the controller "learn function" in the Axe. Saves some time!
Good luck, O
