The new MPE MIDI controllers from Roger Linn (Linnstrument) and Roli would be great if tied to a synth like the DeepMind. The DM12 has a lot of expressive possibilities with so many modulation destinations. It needs to support the new controllers that are capable of delivering that expressiveness. Actually, Behringer should get into the MPE controller market themselves.
There are very few hardware synths out there that support MPE right now.
I would also like to see this in your upcoming Oberheim clone.
MPE support is a highly broad request so given the high number of controllable parameters in the DM it is almost impossible to mpe-enable all of those parameters
If you are a developer of MIDI sound generators and would like to add MPE (Multidimensional Polyphonic Expression) compatibility, this page will give you some help. MPE is pretty straightforward:
Each note's messages are sent on a unique MIDI channel, rotating through a contiguous block of "Per-Note" channels. The per-note messages sent over each channel are limited to Note On, Note Off, Channel Pressure (for finger pressure), Pitch Bend (for x-axis movement) and CC74 (for Y-axis movement).
Messages that apply to all voices (such as Sustain Pedal (CC64), Volume (CC7), Program Change, etc.) are sent over a separate "Master" channel. An alternative implementation is to use no Master channel and to send these common messages over all of the Per-Note channels, in which case the receiver will recognize all messages other than the 5 per-note messages as common to all voices, regardless of the channel over which it is received.
So the main work is:
1) routing each incoming Per-Note channel to its own voice, listening only for the above 5 per-note messages, and
2) routing all other received messages, regardless of channel, to all voices.

So can you explain why features that were requested long time ago by many users still are not implemented: e.g. shortcut to bypass FX, enter Midi notes in Ctrl-sequencer etc ?
Feature requests seem to be implemented in a sporadic kind of way.
It seems kind of useless to post anything here, either issues, which don't get answerd, or feature requests.
So, for me, I'm done here, sorry.

As Robert mentioned already our development teams are aware of MPE support and are looking into it, but it sounds likely that this won't happen with the DeepMind synth products anytime soon. (if at all) We are however still taking suggestions and working to fix what gets reported here the best we can.
