Sorry Terry, and again with all respect you don't have to be a programmer to know this sucks as it is. It's a physical controller and should be able to respond as analogous to the (Arturia) softsynth it's controlling. I have a nearly 10-yr old cheap Novation ReMote 25 that does it just fine, it's not rocket science. This part of Beatstep is basically torturous trying to use as it is and I'm looking at other controller options now, this is all packed up and heading to auction tonight. Was a nice idea but 'let's see what happens next ' is too vague time-wise (again) and poor customer relations to my ears. Thanks for trying though.
