I have the MidiDesigner app for IPad and that works fine,
but would also like pedal control for live performance.

Is there some existing information file/pdf containing the midi settings
that have to be programmed into the pedal?
(I've Googled every combination of words I can think of :)

Thanks.

Ive programmed a softstep to control the at200. it adds a whole extra level of control. The midi implementation is pretty good although the pitch bend ive never been able to get right

Thanks for mentioning you were successful programming softstep.
It's more expensive than I wanted to spend (double the Behringer in USA),
but I'll keep it in mind.

As for pitch bend (which I hadn't thought about)
the only thing I'd guess is it has to do with control number 20 & 21 (pitch shift)
Set 20 to correct value, then use a pedal on 21.
(On the Behringer there are two rocking/expression pedals)
But I know nothing :)

More info re "Control number" 20 (page 35 of AT200 software manual)
Pitch shift configuration

0 = 0 to 1 octave up
1 = 0 to 1 octave down
2 = From 1 octave down to 1 octave up
3 = From 1 whole step down to 1 whole step up

Control number 21 (value 0-127) controls range
set in Control number 20.

PS Softstep manual page 47

It appears you need a seperate Expression (not volume) pedal
to send pitch shift to AT 200

(I thought the Nav Pad might be set to work for pitch shift,
but not in any sensible way)

BOTTOM LINE :)
Somewhere set Control number 20 to value 3 (for a one whole note up/down) etc
THEN add an external Expression pedal to control send values to Control number 21.

There is pitch shift and pitch bend. Two different functions.i did pick up an expression pedal for the softstep and had it working at some point. Pitch bend works like a keyboards pitchbend and has a specific midi cc ( I believe). I did look at a behringer pedal before getting the softstep but the vast flexibility of the softstep sold me. can be a pain to program but worth the effort. The Nav pad can be used for some functions but its not ideal for pitch shifting.

Ah yes, pitch bend ... That joystick I never touch on my old Korg T1
From the AT200 software manual, it looks like the only thing you can do
as far as guitar control is semi-simulate pitch bend with pitch shift and a clever rocker device
But again, I know nothing

Thanks again for responding ... making me ponder the Softstep more.
(The Softstep manual is MUCH MORE ILLUMINATIING than the Behringer)
But I do wish it had an option for using the Nav pad as continuous control. etc

PS Excuse the undisplayable emojis ... that I am so fond of on my IPad :)

PPS ... The only other pitch bend I can imagine is putting a tailpiece on the AT200
like that one on that Fender I had ... that I never used;)

Note: Pitch bend
I finally see there is explict mention in the manual,
but given my cluelessness, I have no idea how to omni it :)
