Hi Guys. Love Studio One and do not want to change DAW but with the same old problem of lacking MPE support now I have a very lovely and expressive thing (Linnstrument).

I found an article before I purchased it describing how to get around the problem of no MPE support with S1 for MPE instruments like this and follishly didn't make a note of it. I understand it involves creating several instrument tracks putting them in a folder to be able to work with easily.

Two questions:

Could anyone please describe how I might do this? At the moment I'm only getting aftertouch and modulation messages, no actual note on messages working on any software instrument.

And will this use 16x the CPU? I hope not.

Anyone had any experience with this? Thank you in advance

Hi, i don't know what article you're refering to, but you could use a tutorial from Roli to set up your MPE in S1:

This should be more or less the same for Linnstrument, hope that helps :)

Edit: And BTW this will not eat the CPU x 16 (as long as you route all the MIDI channels to the same instrument instance, which will be the case for MPE compatible instruments).
