using Keith McMillen SoftStep Foot Controller ?
Has any one used one with audiomulch? there are two versions, one which acts as a mouse replacement plus a few gizmos, (keyWorx version)
and the other one which works with midi I believe.

Any other ideas for an 'intuitive' x/y controller which would enable playing on the metasurface whilst playing an instrument with two hands occupied.

If I'm not wrong there is one version of the softstep which can deal which outputs midi and can operate as a mouse etc when used with keyworx. The 12 step is more suitable for playing melodies (like a keyboard controller, but for your feet).

Here's a comparison.

I'd also be interested to see if anyone uses one with AM. A friend of mine has one and really enjoys it - here's a description of his setup.

Christiano Bocci uses a SoftStep with AM, but I don't see any gestural control going on:

I had a friend around here the other day who is using one too. We didn't try the Metasurface.

Im setting one up right now. Most of the steps I will use to turn things on and off. But definitely the Metasurface as this will do wonders for multiple EQ changes
