Has anyone played around much with expressive percussion instruments? This is something I’m getting interested in but am unsure about how to go about implementing it.
I have the drum overlay for the Sensel Morph, and the default map for that uses regular Midi notes. I turned them into MPE note areas, sending per-note pitch/timbre information and it sorta works, but I have yet to find a drum synth that can really deal with mapping this to anything useful. Bitwig’s Drum machine, for instance, does not expose note-expressions as modulation sources inside of the individual rack instances.
Short of building my own percussion synth in MSP, or trying to hack something together with VCV Rack or similar, has anyone played around with this sort of technique?
