ROLI has released their Equator MPE synth as a standalone instrument in VST and AU formats. Equator, first launched in 2015 normally partners ROLI's Seaboard RISE and Seaboard GRAND instruments.
A spokesperson told us, "Equator is the world's first software synthesizer built for MIDI Polyphonic Expression. Designed from the ground up by the ROLI team, Equator introduces multidimensionally textured sounds and an array of advanced but easy-to-navigate sound design tools. So you can breathe more expression into any project."
Equator is optimized for MPE-enabled controllers like the Seaboard and MPE-compatible DAWs like Logic or Bitwig, but its sounds and effects work with non-MPE instruments as well. So you can bring Equator sounds and effects into any workflow.
