Hi. I’ve had my Sensel Morph since 2017. I hadn’t used it in probably a year, but I decided to try it again today. I updated the firmware and tested it using the art software I own (macOS versions): Painter Essentials 6, Art Rage 5, Mischief and Rebelle 3. I used the Morph with the Art Overlay. For a stylus, I used a paint brush and also the rubber-tipped stylus that Sensel sent me back in 2017. However, unfortunately, I’m still frustrated with how well the Morph functions as a graphics tablet.
Painter Essentials and Rebelle didn’t recognize the Morph’s pressure sensitivity at all. Art Rage and Mischief did recognize the pressure sensitivity. But, in general, I found it was harder to control my marks with the Morph than when using a dedicated graphics tablet, especially when lifting the brush/stylus and moving it to another part of the virtual canvas without making a mark. So I’m still very disappointed.
I do love the feel of using the Morph, especially when using it with the paint brush. In general, the tactile sensation of drawing with the Morph feels better and less slippery than using a graphic tablet. (In the past, I’ve owned Wacoms, but currently own a cheaper tablet from a company called XP-Pen.)
However, from my experience, the Morph just doesn’t work well enough as a graphics tablet for me to actually use it as one.
I’m posting this message to provide Sensel some feedback on my experience. I’m also hoping there is still some way for Sensel to improve the Morph’s functionality as an art tablet in the future. I really want to be able to use it, and I spent $257 for it back in 2017 intending to use it as my primary graphics tablet. But it seems like the Morph is better suited for other tasks, such as making music.
Also, if there are other people having a better experience with the Morph as a drawing device, I’d like to hear your experiences.
