Madrona Labs updates Aalto to v1.7 - Adds MPE support

Madrona Labs has updated Aalto to version 1.7. Aalto, the patchable software synthesizer, now supports Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression (MPE).

MPE is a new protocol developed in cooperation with Apple, Bitwig, Haken Audio, KMI, Madrona Labs, Moog Music, Roger Linn Design, ROLI and others. With MPE, software and hardware synths can support the per-note expressive capabilities of new controllers like the Linnstrument, Seaboard, and Soundplane. Unlike more traditional MIDI keyboards, these multidimensional controllers let musicians shape each note independently using pressure as well as x/y motion. A single note can be transmitted over each MIDI channel, so each note can have its own continuous pitch, pressure, x, and y changes over time bringing an acoustic sounding nuance to electronic performance.

Aalto version 1.7 also brings improved Soundplane compatibility with MIDI patches, optimized animation drawing, and bug fixes. MPE support in Madrona Labs' Kaivo synthesizer will follow next month.

Price: $99, which includes a multiple-computer license for both Mac OS X and Windows versions. The Aalto 1.7 update is free for existing customers. A non-time-limited demo version is also available.
