SoftStep 2 is an unbreakable, programmable MIDI foot controller, giving you unmatched connectivity to any and all of your rigs. The 10 gesture-sensitive pads register pressure and position, allowing you not just precision, but expression in your foot controls. SoftStep 2's status-indicating LEDs and crystal-clear alphanumeric display ensure you never get lost, whether on a dark stage or deep in the groove.

At 18" and 1.3 pounds, SoftStep 2 travels with you anywhere in a backpack or gig bag, and is rugged enough to be thrown onto the stage night after night. SoftStep 2 is easy to use out of the box, with built-in compatibility with all major music software. The combination of LED feedback and pads layered with our Smart Fabric sensors gives you a centralized control source at the tips of your toes - freeing your hands to actually play.


  • Brilliantly Backlit - SoftStep 2 provides visual feedback from backlit keys, LED indicators, and an alphanumeric display.

  • Smart Fabric - Complete gestural control. A Smart Fabric layer under each key detects foot position and pressure in real time.

  • Road Proof - Durable by design. Softstep 2 has been tested to survive spills, 2-story falls onto concrete, and being run over by a car.
