Embodme Erae mpe controller - will it connect to Kyma the same as Linnstrument/Roli etc?

0 votes

Embodme Erae mpe controller looks like a large Roli block utilising mpe and midi 2.0.

It could be connected to Pacarana either by usb or by its midi 2.0 output using a converter to standard din. I’m assuming it will therefore connect to the Pacarana in the same way as Linnstrument or Roli Blocks.

Is this assumption correct?

I’m using Kyma on PC

Kind regards

Have you tried plugging it into the Pacarana USB port? Does it show up on the list of MIDI input devices in the DSP Status window?
I would say this assumpution is not wholly correct.  I believe Symbolic Sound worked on a special set of communication protocols with the Linnstrument. I believe Blocks works like any 'standard MPE controller' Assuming the Erea conforms to the MPE standard ( there are lots of grey areas apparently) then it should work as other MPE controllers do. I am not sure about the light feedback for the Erea, perhaps others who have used blocks with Kyma could chip in.

Now the Erae Touch has been released for sale and backers have received theirs; can anybody report how the Erae behaves/connects with Pacarana and Kyma?
