What is the difference between SoftStep 1 and SoftStep 2 hardware?

The SoftStep 2 hardware incorporates a number of changes, including:

  • New cruciform key shape — including the Nav Pad.
  • Raised back row of keys for easier access.
  • Keys use LEDs for lighting, not EL wire.
  • Faster internal processor.
  • State recall in Standalone mode.

Other than the above, each version should act exactly the same. The devices even show up as the same name ("SSCOM") so any old projects/sessions/setups made with SoftStep 1 should work with SoftStep 2 (assuming they're using the same preset).
