Sensel, never to rest on their laurels, has just released express MPE – a free to download, synth preset Superpack of 40+ MPE-ready presets for some of the best software and hardware synths and selected stock DAW synths.
MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) digitises the subtleties of touch. As more and more software and hardware synthesisers adopt this standard, there’s never been a better time to play sounds that react to more than just a tap. MPE lets you experience a deep connection to electronic sound.
This pack provides presets, ready to play via Sensel’s Morph however and will also work with other MPE capable controllers such as the ROLI series, Artiphon, or Linnstrument.
The preset pack contains at least five presets for each of the following:
SOFTWARE SYNTHS: Madrona Labs Aalto, Madrona Labs Kaivo, Audio Damage Quanta, Arturia Pigments, xFER Records Serum
HARDWARE SYNTHS: Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth
STOCK DAW SYNTH PRESETS: Ableton Live 11, Bitwig Studio
Starting with BitWig Studio, Sensel shot an inspiring series of short performance videos and uploaded them as a YouTube playlist showcasing each of the above instrument presets in sequence.
To access this pack, visit the link below. You’ll need to provide your email address to subscribe to the Sensel newsletter and shortly after confirm your email address. After a few moments, you’ll receive a download link on a separate email.
If you want to get new life from your synths, or are just getting to know MPE, you’ll want this pack for some production-ready sounds and creative inspiration. These sounds range to soft bliss to giant leads to quirky yet versatile percussion. If you’re new to MPE, this preset collection will serve as a masterclass in how to map Pitch Bend, Glide, and Pressure in each of these software (and the Hydrasynth hardware). Pull these apart and learn some great ways to get the most from the many dimensions of MPE.
