Fantastic MIDI controller for a guitar player
This is a fantastic MIDI controller for a guitar player. I needed a way to trigger samples with my feet while playing guitar. This device is perfect for that. The companion application lets you create scenes, in each scene you can assign a MIDI channel and multiple MIDI notes to each button. I've got it connected via a McMillen MIDI Expander to an AKAI MPX8 Sampler Player. The 12 Step can also send a program change when you switch scenes; unfortunately the MPX8 handle program change messages.
I can imagine that in the future I will use more of the 12 Step's capabilities.
The unit is sturdy and lightweight. The big chunky foot buttons are rubberized plastic and are back lit to make them highly visible on the stage.
The only improvement I would want is a proper MIDI out so that I would not need the MIDI Expander.
