A New  World of Expression...

MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) is the biggest change in electronic sound since the invention of the synthesizer. Dozens of hardware and software companies have now joined this movement to make music creation tools more expressive.

What is MPE?

MPE is a new specification based on MIDI, the universal protocol for electronic music. MPE allows digital instruments to behave more like acoustic instruments in terms of spontaneous, polyphonic sound control. So players modulate parameters like timbre, pitch, and amplitude — all at the same time.

You can use MPE to...

  • BEND PITCH, modify volume and play with resonance at the same time — like on a string instrument
  • SLIDE BETWEEN SOUNDS, or brighter and darker versions of a sound, like sliding between notes on a piano
  • SAVE TIME by achieving sonic effects through intuitive gestures, rather than laborious programming
  • ADD SPONTANEITY to your music, because more parameters of sound are available to play with

At Plugin Boutique, we have collated some our finest available software that is all MPE-ready, offering a brand new combination of tools to offer up new ideas, approaches to your music production.

Equator2 is ROLI's revolutionary MPE synthesizer. Six fully flexible source slots let you build unique sounds, drawing on a wide range of synthesis engines, whilst also offering an incredible 530 MPE presets to dive straight into to expressive synth programming.

ROLI Studio offers an all-in-one production suite package that is built to help you discover inspiring sounds with speed and ease. 

Softube Modular gives you both the sound, flexibility and expandability of a true analogue modular synthesizer. Created in close collaboration with Doepfer, Modular offers the same extraordinary sound quality as its analogue forebears, thanks to detailed component-level modelling of the original Modular units.

  Audio Damage Quanta is a ten-voice true stereo granular synthesizer, featuring full customisation to match  your taste and playing style. USE the MPE-ready functionality to directly  access and control  per-note  pressure, pitch bend, and modulation.      

The MPE Bundle is exclusive to Plugin Boutique and available for a limited time only.

Softube Modular

Softube Modular is more than just another virtual synthesizer plug-in—it's an entirely new modular synth standard.

As a Modular owner, the basic system gives you a great toolkit to start out with. It includes six modeled Doepfer modules and over 20 utility modules. But there is much more to discover. Additional modules from quality Eurorack vendors—starting with a range of units from cutting-edge manufacturer Intellijel—are available for separate purchase. More modules will continuously be made available. Owners of Softube's drum synth Heartbeat can add its instrument and EQ modules to Modular and combine them with any other modules. Softube's award-winning engineering team have modeled each analog module, component by component, and the resulting plug-ins are sonically indistinguishable from their hardware counterparts. 


  • Modular is a cross-platform modular synthesizer plug-in standard, which features authorized emulations of modules from well known hardware Eurorack brands
  • True dynamic circuit-emulation—looks, functions and sounds like its hardware counterparts
  • Basic system contains six Doepfer modules (A-110-1 VCO, A-108 VCF, A-132-3 Dual VCA, A-140 ADSR, A-118 Noise/Random, A-147 VCLFO)
  • Basic system also contains over 20 Utility modules (such as MIDI to CV/gate, mixers, slew, sample & hold, switches, multiples, delay, offset, sequencers, clock dividers, logic and signal tools, as well as a Polyphonic MIDI to CV/gate module).
  • Additional authorized emulations from Intellijel is available as add-ons (uFold II, Korgasmatron II, Rubicon). Many more modules from other quality hardware Eurorack vendors to be released
  • Simple design of your own interaction layout with the Performance modules in classic synthesizer style
  • Softube Heartbeat drum channels and EQ can be used as separate modules for owners of Heartbeat
  • More than 200 quality presets included covering a huge range of styles and sounds
  • Can be used both as effect and instrument for your DAW and integrates beautifully with your hardware Eurorack modular
  • High internal sample rate within system enables true feedback

Audio Damage Quanta

Quanta is a full-featured ten-voice true stereo granular synthesizer, with up to a hundred 1000ms grains per voice, and full control over the grain state, with direct randomization and modulation of most parameters. Drag-and-drop a sample (WAV, AIFF, Ogg, or FLAC) on to the window and go to work.

Quanta is customizable to your taste and playing style. With full MPE support, it can take advantage of the extended control set of your Linnstrument, Seaboard, Soundplane, Continuum, or other MPE controller, and support for TUN files lets you use tuning tables. The resizable Hi-DPI GUI lets you adjust the size to match your visual needs, and the cross-platform preset mechanism lets you share your creations with your friends and collaborators, no matter what system they are using.


  • Multi-Format Sample Loader: Quanta can load AIFF, WAV, Broadcast WAV, FLAC, MP3, and Ogg in any sample rate, bit depth, and channel configuration. 
  • Grain Engine: Up to 100 simultaneous grains per voice, of up to 1 second long, with control over grain rate, pitch, direction, shape, length, panning, source position, and level.
  • Sidecar Oscillator: Continuously variable wave shape, with pulse width modulation, and independent control over pitch (separate from grain engine.) Can be injected directly into grain engine. 
  • Noise Source: Noise source features a "color" control that affects tonal characteristics of the noise. Can be injected directly into grain engine. 
  • Dual Multi-Mode Filters: Filters can be used in serial or parallel modes, and include lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and notch in 2-pole and 4-pole configurations. 
  • Flexible Envelope Generator (FEG) x 4: The four FEGs are arbitrary function generators, with up to 99 steps, curve and step level control, arbitrary loop points, and host tempo sync. 
  • Flexible Low-Frequency Oscillator (FLFO) x 2: The pair of FLFOs utilize four controls (phase, shape, skew, and warp) to access a virtually limitless palette of waveforms, and feature host tempo sync and retrigger. 
  • Sample And Hold: The S&H mod source can sample noise (random) or any of the other mod sources, at either a user-defined rate or a musical division.
  • Modulation Matrix: Every mod and MIDI source can be easily and simply assigned to any destination using the quick-access bi-polar modulation matrix. Touch a destination on the UI and the matrix automatically scrolls to the correct row. 
  • Tuning Tables And Global Tuning Offset: Re-tune Quanta to new intonations and temperaments using the open-source and easy-to-use TUN file format. A global tuning offset (default to A=440) allows you to easily retune the entire synth to match a different A frequency without using a tuning table. 
  • MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression): Quanta understands both "legacy" MIDI and MPE. Use your Linnstrument, Roli Seaboard, Haken Continuum, or Madrona Labs Soundplane (among others) to directly access per-note  pressure, pitch bend, and modulation. 
  • Per-Instance Settings: Quanta utilizes a per-instance customization method: set MPE mode, aftertouch smoothing, pitch bend range override, tuning table, and global tuning offset for each instance in your DAW.   
  • Factory Presets: Quanta comes with a substantial collection of factory content, including Designer Presets from Marcus Fisher, Joseph Fraioli, Chris Carter, and Richard Devine.
  • Cross-Platform Preset Format: Quanta utilizes an XML-based preset manager, and stores the sample within the preset for easy asset management. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell, no asset management required. 
  • Fully Resizable Hi-Dpi/Retina GUI: Quanta's vector-based GUI is resolution-agnostic, and displays the same on every system and resolution. Easily resize the UI (per instance) to match your visual needs, from postage stamp to poster-sized.
