No, sorry, I don't think that it will be MPE compatible.

If you want MPE Ready To Go in a box; check out the Percussa SSP. Not to take the wind out of Flemming’s sails (as these are quite different products and Flemming creates cool stuff) but check out this post on the SSP forum that I wrote showing the setup with a Linnstrument.

No back to the Gotharman show!

Zybraz preliminary specs

-24 note polyphonic
-64 programmable preset locations

-2 parts (lower and upper) with key split

Each part has:
-1 resonator oscillator with morphable waveform (sine to triangle to sawtooth to square to feedwave).
-A noise generator
-A filter (8 types)
-2 envelopes (1 ADSR, 1 Decay)
-2 LFO’s (1 for the filter and one for the rest)
-1 effects processor (8 types)

Connections:
-9VDC in
-MIDI in and out
-Audio out

Not yet certain:
-Which effect types it will have –Delay, Roto Delay and Bit Crusher are certain.
-The box: The first prototype box really looks great from a distance, but when getting close, light scratches appear all over the surface. The company who made it, has promised to fix this issue, and send me a new prototype box, but this might be in a more matted black color.
This box is not cheap, so I will need at least 10 pre-orders, to keep this. If I get less than 10 pre-orders, or if the next prototype box is not as it should be, the final model will appear in another box type. And even if I get 10 pre-orders, it might only be the pre-ordered Zybra’s, that comes in this box style.

I am still working to sort out some issues with the box, so I can't currently set the final price, but I expect it to be somewhere around 600 euro, with 10% off on the pre-orders.

I'll be watching for the preorders to open, then!

The layout is giving me serious ASR10 vibes even tho its not a sampler.

That is a really great idea, but I am not sure, if I will be able to squeeze this in. I will have a look at it.

Zybraz prototype box 2. With a textured matted black surface, it is not as shiny as the first one, but absolutely more resistive to scratches and fingerprints.
