Recently I purchased a first generation SoftStep, which is great piece of hardware, that does almost everything I want in a floorboard. Because it was pressure sensitive, and played notes, and could transmit velocities with notes, I jumped to the conclusion that it could be used to play notes with a full range, linear velocity response, like a drum pad controller. I was quite disappointed to find out that a fixed velocity had to be programed per modline, rather than the controller being able to translate initial pressure into velocity.
I would very much appreciate if this feature is implemented in the next version of the software / firmware. It would open up a lot more possibilities in using it as a performance tool.
