A list of DAWs and how they can be used with expressive instruments.
DAWs with MPE support
- Bitwig Studio
- Cubase , latest has explicit MPE support, previous had voice per channel support
- Traktion Waveform
Live Performance environments, which support MPE/voice per channel
- Mainstage (a few instruments are voice per channel)
- EigenD - open source
- Max/MSP - user coded!
- Pure Data - user coded!
- Usine Hollyhock
DAWs which support OMNI channel, but not recording multi midi channel midi
- Logic Pro X (a few instruments are voice per channel)
DAWS with no MPE/voice per channel support
- Ableton Live , need to use track per channel and then route to VSTs, some M4L tools to help this.
Other DAWs, that might be problematic !?

a more in-depth discussion of each these is warranted in separate threads, particularly how musicians use them
