Keith McMillen Instruments announced earlier in the week the release of SoftStep, the first universal multi-touch USB/MIDI foot controller.
In this official video, KMI support tech Sarah Howe takes you on a quick tour of the technical aspects of the SoftStep.
Weighing in at just over a pound and fitting into most laptop and guitar cases, SoftStep has ten sensor keys, which go beyond the simple on and off commands by supporting five degrees of motion.
See Sonic State's Softstep introduction coverage for details.
