[Solved]: How do I set up MPE?

I feel embarrassed because I’m having so much trouble with setting it up.

I have no idea how to get MPE running with Serum. It’s the only plugin I have that supports it, so I can’t test other software to check. I’ve enabled MPE in Serum. I’m guessing that I’m supposed to turn all of the keyboard overlay pads into MPE XYZ pads? But when I change them all it does nothing to control notes independently in Serum. I’m hopelessly lost.

I’m running Ableton, so perhaps I’m supposed to make a script before I can get the midi data to route properly?

@FlyingSoda no reason to feel embarrassed! That’s what we’re here for.

The reason you’re having trouble is that Abelton does not currently support MPE. Here is a list of DAWs that do!

Please let us know if you have any other questions! And thanks so much for using the Morph.


There are ugly workarounds. This script handles the worst of it.

Using a different VST host is really the best solution, though. You can render out clips and bring those back into Ableton.

Ok, it’s much clearer to me now, thank you both. I managed to get MPE running with the script!

Is this still the case? No MPE in Ableton right?

Correct, this is still the case.
