Only PolyAftertouch, not all the five dimensions. Still more dynamic than channel aftertouch. This holds true for all DSI synths. With external MPE controllers you can do poly aftertouch, but the built in DSI keyboards only have channel aftertouch. Very few hardware boards have MPE to date including the Modor, a couple of the Black Corp rack units like Dekkard's Dream and the new one, and it is on the Moog One roadmap, which is not surprising since one of the authors of MPE standards Geert Bevin works for them now.

I read in a different post that the Sequential-team might look at full MPE-support for the OB-6 / P6 etc. if enough users would ask for it.

So here's another user asking for it!

MPE Support on OB-6 would be awesome (with a Roli Seaboard or Continuum for instance)

I have both a P6 and an Ob6, and a seaboard Rise, so very interested.

So far i didn't have good results with the combo, due to the way aftertouch works on the roli, both aftertouch and velocity reacted quite strangely on the Ob6. Felt quite hard to control. Perhaps if i made a preset from scratch to use with the Rise.

Strangely, it worked like a charm on the Sub37, duophonic mode is awesome there with the Roli.

With Linn Instrument controller I'm finding you need to tweak your patches to make mod matrix setting (like AT) at a much lower setting, otherwise too sensitive.  I haven't tried it much on OB 6 yet, but P12, PEK, PO8 responding nicely.

I also NEED MPE Support on OB-6 ... since getting my Roli I don't care to play anything anymore without MPE.  Also, I need it on the OB-6 Desktop ... I have no use ( and no room) for the built-in keyboard on the Prophet X.

I would love to play the OB-6 with my Haken Continuum.

+1 here as well.   Now that I have pre-ordered an Expressive E Osmose (and still have my Seaboard) I have even more reasons to need a MPE-capable Prophet X, OB6 or P12.  My first choice between these would be the Prophet X as I think it sounds would be best suited to the expressivity of MPE.

My guess is that the Osmose will be very popular because it is much closer to a regular keyboard action than any of the current MPE devices and its popularity will greatly increase demand for MPE-capable hardware synths... especially in desktop versions.   I hope DSI agrees and invests now in what is likely to be a very profitable market in the very near future.

Been a year, I'm just weighing in again ;)   

I have full MPE on only one synth really- and that's the Modor NF1.  It's really the reason I bought it.  In conjunction with the Linn midi controller its really fun to mess with slides and poly AT, etc.   Addition of such a feature to the OB6 would keep this synth in premier status for many years to come.

Hi DSI/Sequential

The P6/OB6 are literally begging for MPE implementation. Literally. I can hear it. You are the right company to do this and mainstream it. Please. MPE is the future. Be the future. My Linnstrument has completely ruined non compliant synths. Someone is going to do a clearly MPE pop song and it's going to be like Cher on Autotune back in the day. Be the company they do it on.

The OB6 is goddamn crying for MPE. It's crying for it. Screams in the night.

PLEASE
