Well, maybe I was making it more complex in my mind than it really is. At this point I’m just trying to turn things on and off. the other night I was able to have it midi learn to turn pedals on and off (distortion, chorus etc.) but when I tried to get it to do the record on on the looper it wouldn’t record. Today I tried it again and it works as expected.
It really is as simple as set the Softstep to TOGL and then in the plug in just select MIDI Learn and save. Then press the pedal you want.
