REanimating this thead in case anyone is watching.  For those of you using Soft Step — are you plugging directly into the pedal or going through the MIDI expander?

I’m setting up the SoftStep2 with an H9 now, using the MIDI Expander, so I don’t have much experience yet. But I know you need the MIDI Expander to get the MIDI cable port. The SoftStep has USB connection that works with my MacBook but I don’t think it communcates with pedals by USB directly. I never tried to connect the H9’s USB to my computer at the same time that the SoftStep2’s USB was connected, so I can’t confirm that they will or won’t talk like that but nothing in the documentation I have seen suggests that it works that way or by directly connecting a USB cable.
