Thanks to the new Tomofon MPE mode, users can utilize pitch bend and controllers in a polyphonic manner, unlocking greater expressive possibilities.
Another new added feature is the ability to assign a “Body” to each patch. This feature enhances the realism of acoustic models by simulating the natural characteristics of various resonant spaces. Users can choose from a diverse selection of bodies, ranging from large boxes to metallic materials.
