  1. They should release an iPad version. I’d buy a copy in a heartbeat because Modal’s synthesis algorithms seem really good.

  2. Wow the cheapest costing hardware MPE synth on the market, time to get me one or two. I think two for simple Poly chaining. I will be making a video. Connect to my Sensel Morph (Buchla Thunderbird panel). I am into full din midi, usb works with power hub. For bang for the buck I think Modal Electronics, just did a stick up put your hands up!

    Fun time is coming!

    From the Manual:
    Each MPE dimension is mapped to the SKULPTsynthesiser sound engine as follows:

    • Left-right / X-axis (sent as MIDI Pitch Bend) – This controls the pitch of the note, with the
    range set using the ‘MPE Pitch Bend Range’ global setting (see above).

    • Front-back / Y-axis (sent as MIDI CC 74) – This controls the SKULPTsynthesiser Mod Wheel
    modulation assignments.

    • Pressure / Z-axis (sent as MIDI Channel Aftertouch) – this controls the SKULPTsynthesiser
    Aftertouch modulation assignments.

    As the MPE Y and Z dimension assignments are built into SKULPTsynthesiser’s existing
    modulation matrix, these assignments are saved and recalled with each patch.
