Set up button for "foot on" and "long trig"?

Postby kstarcher » Sat Jan 12, 2013 4:46 pm

Hi all -

I feel like I'm missing something obvious here. I'd like to set up a button on the Softstep that, if you press it normally like any ol' pedal button, does one function. If you hold it, it does something else.

It looks like I'd have to do this by using Foot On for function 1 and Long Trig for function 2. However, just by pressing the button to hold it for the Long Trig, you're also triggering the Foot On function, so I get both functions activating at once.

Is there any way I can isolate the two?

Thanks!

Nope, there's no way to ignore the Foot On.

If you don't Mind tapping twice, you can use the double tap trigger with the long trigger.

Ugh, too bad... on the bright side, that means at least I WAS reading the manual correctly. *sigh* I had set it up with the double/long trigs, but was hoping to set it up to work more like a Boomerang looper. Will have to adapt.

Thanks for the feedback!

You can do that using Bome Midi Translator. In general, ANYTHING you cannot do with the SS editor…
That is A LOT :-)
Search on their forum.

Yeah, MIDI Translator pairs nicely with the SoftStep.

Yeah, I'm starting to run into more things that I can't seem to handle with SS Editor (some convoluted LED toggling things as well). So Bome seems promising, but I'm guessing that means I either have to figure out how to replicate all my existing Softstep settings from SS Editor all over again, or that I have to have yet another program running alongside Ableton to make it all work?

Thanks...
