KMI's SoftStep Foot Controller is a very nice device, but to get the full power, you need to use KMI's proprietary software.

This is an alternative to KMI's software, allowing to use the SoftStep with unsupported systems (e.g. Linux).

It already provides a few functionalities not available in KMI's software. If you have a crazy idea about what you want to do with your SoftStep, this might be the way to go.

The __main__ part of foococo.py shows how to use it.

Enjoy!

Note about branches:

  • The master branch is the original project, using python/pyo to make a bridge between your SoftStep and other software.

  • The pyo branch aims to make the SoftStep easy to use from a python/pyo program. This branch does not need pygame.
