'Currently in Standalone mode, the SoftStep is unable to output note 0. It can be output while in Hosted mode though — not sure if that helps. Since the bug is in Standalone mode, the editor Max patch wouldn't be of use — the problem is in the firmware itself.'
I just picked up a 12 step this weekend. I love it so far. I only ever need to send midi notes to control my software and I struggled to program the softstep to do that simple task when I first got it. I just plugged the 12 step in and it worked. Not as much tactile feedback as I would like but the switches are silent and I like them better than the softstep. Softstep also has a bug where it can't send midi note 0 that they haven't fixed for years now. Of course the looper in my strymon goes into record with midi note 0.
I'll hold on to the softstep for now in case I want to do some crazy midi controlling in the future but I have a feeling ill probably sell it.
