  • Beat ya to it. ;)

  • sorry didn't use search,
    didn't see anything on the frontpage

  • B)
    I’m just teasing. I really don’t care.
    I will bump your post, not mine. :)

    Just putting the info out there for anybody who is interested. Your info is as good as mine, pointing to the new MPE Spec.

    Stay cool, @Max23 . <3

  • If I've understood it correctly it's next to impossible to make a multi-timbral sound module with MPE support since each incoming note comes in on it's own midi-channel meaning it would need a separate midi/usb-port for each controller...

    There are workarounds with tools like Polymer. Or if an instrument offer several outputs and could spread the midi channels itself to them etc. maybe.
    But anyway you just have 15 voices for MPE and one master channel.
    I wonder why we can´t have 1000 midi channels per output :)

    Could be an 8-Bit limitation ;)

    I looked at the specs again and think Polymer just can use velocity, pitch Bend, and mod Wheel.
    So CC74, pressure and velocity release should be added then.
    However, i´m sure a clever developer would find a way.
    Polymer is brilliant but seems abandoned as well by now (but it still works).

    I still am wondering why regular ol’ Polyphonic Aftertouch isn’t used more. It seems to be the same thing, without the need to use a channel per note. I suppose the old way just gives you a single controller output per note, but MPE has multiple controller support per note.
    (Not to confuse anyone, I mean controller above as in a CC message output, not like an actual hardware controller.)

    Still, it seems weird that this is looked upon as “game changing” but Polyphonic Aftertouch has been around forever and it seems no one really cared much about it.

  • When AUv3 was announced back in 2015, one of the mentioned features was support for 256x16 midi cables. See here for a discussion: https://www.logicprohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=117657

    You’re making a good point there. In effect, MPE has been around for decades, yet, pretty much nobody uses it even after all those years. I wonder why people suddenly bother just because you can now do MULTIPLE things you never did AT ONCE :D ;)

    Maybe the lack of good and affordable controllers with poly aftertouch.

  • I’m interested in Launchpad Pro precisely because it supports poly aftertouch.
