Controling Max with a foot pedal?

    Hi! I am very new to using Max and also in general very fresh in using electronic devices when making music. I am a saxophonist and is about to perform a piece for saxophone and Max. For this piece I need to advance the max patch while playing using either a foot pedal or the space key on the computer.
    I have a Keith McMillen Soft Step to use, but I cant figure out how to make it cooperate with Max. It seems to be very simple, but unfortunately not simple enough for my brain/knowledge.
    If you have some inputs for me to use I would be very happy.
