SoftStep Universal Midi pedal?

Anyone tried this? I was thinking about it, it sounds cool, you can essentially program one of the buttons to act as a wah or another one to change the rate of a rotary pedal. I just don't have enough info on it aside from the company's videos on their website.

I guess with the midi expander you can pair it up with a lot of outboard gear, but atm i'll only be using it with guitar rig and Reaper.

As of right now I'm using a padKontrol that I cleverly placed on the ground.

I'm curious about the same thing and how well it works in Logic pro to control Amplitube and logics own amp sims. Also, it would be AWESOME if there's a way to program it so you can use it on inserts in logic, and not limit it to "midi controlled effects."

I heard the programming software is a bit buggy. That's a shame. This is a piece of equipment that you should wait several revisions to obtain.

For whatever it's worth, my padkontrol seems to be making a fine foot pedal for me. I just added some rubber grommets to elevate some of the pads. I can't do any of the fancy modulations as in the softstep, but I doubt even the softsteps modulation parameters are completely practical.
