Sensel Expands Free Express MPE Sound Pack

New presets for five different instruments added      12/05/21

Sensel, the creators of the Morph multi-touch controller, have announced that they're adding brand new presets for five different instruments to their free Express MPE sound pack. Here's their press release with the full details...

Originally released in January, 2021, Express MPE offers gorgeous, playful presets for some of the most expressive synthesizers on the market: Xfer Serum, Arturia Pigments, Bitwig Studio, Audio Damage Quanta, Madrona Labs Aalto and Kaivo, and the Ashun Sound Machines Hydrasynth.

Now, Sensel has added presets for Audio Damage Phosphor and Continua, sonicLAB Fundamental, Newfangled Audio Generate and Pendulate, and Vital Audio Vital synths. These sounds range from indulgent pads to robot-inspired risers to retro digital sounds, with at least five presets for each title.

For customers who are new to MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE), these presets are a masterclass in how to map Pitch Bend, Glide, and Pressure in each of these software (and the Hydrasynth hardware). By putting their fingers to the sounds, they'll have a new dimension of sonic control.  By pulling the presets apart, one can learn some great ways to get the most from the many dimensions of MPE.

"We've gotten a lot of great feedback from folks who are using the original Express MPE presets and saw an opportunity to encourage further exploration," said Sensel Product Strategist and Morph Frontman Peter Nyboer. "MPE is coming to more DAWs and instruments, seemingly every week, and we want to be on the front lines promoting it while removing barriers to entry."

The sounds can be used in any MPE-ready host like Ableton Live 11, Bitwig, StudioOne, Logic, Cubase, and others with any MPE controller like a Sensel Morph, ROLI, Artiphon, or Linnstrument.

The Morph is an endlessly adaptable, MPE-compatible multi-touch controller, using magnetically attached tactile overlays and the intuitive Sensel configuration app for bespoke integration with a wide range of music and other creative applications. It outputs MIDI (with and without MPE), keystrokes, mouse movements and more, and recognises input by touch, sticks, pens, brushes or anything else you care to hit, press or stroke it with.
