Chromatic Keyboard Foot Controller

12 Step is a road-proof, brilliantly backlit MIDI keyboard foot controller. Designed to be ultraportable and fit in a backpack or gig bag, the 18”, 22 ounce 12 Step is more than a foot-driven keyboard – it is also a controller capable of sending continuous messages while reacting to the pressure and tilt of your foot.

Smart Fabric

12 Step's keys feature a smart fabric layer that responds to the velocity, pressure and tilt of your foot.


Perfect for playing bass lines, chords, triggering clips, or any other musical accents that fit your style.

Road Proof

Durable by design, 12 Step has been tested to survive spills, 2-story falls, and being run over by a van.

"12 Step takes cues from the successful design of SoftStep which uses smart fabric to bring the subtle control of notes to its knees. Actually even lower. You can easily program up to 5 note chords with velocity, pressure, and even bend"


Essential part of your rig

12 Step’s keys can trigger individual notes, 5-note chords, clips, backing tracks, and give you control over parameters such as pitch bend and volume. By putting the keys at your feet, 12 Step gives you the power to add depth to your performance, even if both hands are tied up. Its rugged build and lack of moving parts ensures 12 Step will be an essential part of your rig for years to come.
