Uh, oh. Now I’m spreading around my own G.A.S. addiction. I don’t think you’ll regret it, st. bede. I consider the 8 Step Program to be one of my most versatile purchases. And it often gets paired with my most versatile purchase [H9].
I like gear that’ll grow with your understanding of it. The 8 Step is a problem-solver. It adds features that you’d like to have in your other pedals. Just lately, I’ve been programming a number of ‘Time Modulation’ presets for the H9. They will work with a common expression pedal, but they really come to life with expression pedal ‘LFOs’ (like the Source Audio Reflex, or 8 Step).
There’s a bit of a typo above that I can’t edit. It should read “CTRL + mouse movement” for fine-tuning in Windows H9 Control.
BarneyBrown, I’ve since thought of a possibility for the Beatstep. If it is capable of sending all 128 MIDI Notes (and I don’t know either way), you could translate those to a MIDI CC value range of 0-127. It’d require something like MIDI Solutions’ Event Processor. I have one mounted out of the way under my pedalboard.
In one scenario, I use it to ‘program’ harmonies from a small, 25-key MIDI controller, or stream harmony changes from a hardware MIDI sequencer. It’s not much more cost-effective than the 8 Step Program, though. Both devices have extremely deep capabilities, but in two completely different areas of expertise.
