2021 NAMM Show: Sensel has introduced Express MPE – a free set of MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) presets for five different synthesizer plugins (Aalto, Kaivo, Quanta, Pigments, Serum), two DAWS (Bitwig and Live 11) and one hardware synth (ASM Hydrasynth).

There are 5+ presets for each synth, all designed for MPE. There’s percussion, pads, leads, etc – all of which are designed to not only be great sounds, but also a great way to learn about how to design sounds for MPE.

“These presets are a masterclass in how to map Pitch Bend, Glide, and Pressure in each of these software (and the Hydrasynth hardware),” they note. “Pull these apart and learn some great ways to get the most from the many dimensions of MPE.”

Express MPE is a free download (email required) from the Sensel site.
