With MPE support

Any better find?

Recent Serum update added "some" MPE support, but not sure if it's fully functional.

Hive should be fine with any MPE controller (multi channel MIDI support, PitchBend +/- 48 semitones, CC#74 -> MIDI 1/2)

The PPG synths I've seen listed as supporting MPE but I haven't tried them with my Seaboard.

I think MPE support may be on the cards for HALion.

Not really "recent", but... there's also AIR Hybrid 3. No MPE support, and, the wavetable playback is also very lo-fi, compared to other wavetable synths.

Thanks. Cypher 2 doesn't seem to have any wavetables...?

Oops! You are right! I really thought it has an option for wavetables in the oscillators section! Sorry about that!

But it still an amazing synth, because of the FM and other modulations. I have DCAM synth and Strobe 2 but I don't have Cypher 2, although I'm thinking of it especially if I'm getting a Roli keyboard :)

there are patches for Padshop Pro. Wait, you said wavetable, I don't know if it does that. :oops:

You haven't listed Sektor. I am also wondering what the point of this list is. School assignment?
