I know AudioDamage (whose instruments have been into MPE & alternate tunings for a while) not only enabled support for this, but effectively made it replace TUN as the default. It'll be interesting to see what other steam this picks up; I wonder if Bitwig will add support.

Has there been any work done on a soundplane client for Windows? My macbook's screen died, and I'm seriously considering making the switch. It looks like I might be able to use MEC, but I'd prefer an official client. I'm happy to help test one out, too!

just an update -- I couldn't figure out the build process at all. I've got my old mac laptop running the client, setup to a bonjour/networked midi session, and rtpmidi on my windows machine is reading from that, and since both are plugged into an ethernet switch the latency is negligible. MPE works great.

I'd say that I'd still prefer a native windows client, but I suspect I'll end up switching back to an Apple Silicon Mac in the next year or two.

Oh! no, I didn't take it to mean that at all. My day job is Unix CLI/Server and Web front-end development, and desktop apps are something I'm interested in but have no experience with.

MEC is Micro Expression Control , I thought I heard about it here, but who knows.

I'm not super-fluent in C and am totally unfamiliar with Windows development, but work in half a dozen languages already anyway. I can take a stab at getting a dev environment going but I think I'll be pretty out of my element with that.

After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back in love with my soundplane, and made a control script for Bitwig Studio so that it would properly recognize it as an MPE device.
