MPE support in V8-Collection
« on: December 09, 2020, 09:24:53 am »
Well, it appears that the new V8-Collection is out and there is NO support yet for MPE.

This is ridiculous, it's early 2021 folks and you've had plenty of engineering time to roll MPE into all of the existing instruments. But instead of working on the bread and butter of the Collection, the energy was spent on adding more "instruments".

Why? Do we need more "stuff", stuff that is still stunted from a control standpoint?
Isn't pure and fluid expression the most important factor in playing an instrument?
Is virtuosity gone, just replaced with a bunch of DAW jammer-bots?

Oh, and we get to pay dearly for this lack of proper expression, even as an upgrade.
And let's not forget that microtonal facilities across the V8-Collection are lacking as well.

But apparently Arturia feels it's only the size of the hamburger, not the taste of the meat, that counts.
Time to start eating at another restaurant!

What is all the ranting about? In all of the blood and thunder, there is no explanation of terms. WTF ( of which I presume we all know the meaning) is MPE and why should anyone care? That is why the rules of basic composition forbid the use of initials without explanation

Honestly it took less time to Google it than you must've spent writing your complaint about people using vague abbreviations.

As of V Collection 9:

and I believe that the SQ-80 belongs on that list as well.
