To control Omnisphere using the SE-02, you’ll need to do the following:

  • Using a USB cable, connect the SE-02 to your computer.

  • Download and install the appropriate SE-02 USB driver on your computer.

  • Verify that your SE-02 is transmitting MIDI control through USB.

  • Enable “Boutique” as a MIDI input device to Omnisphere in the host software you’re using (DAW, Standalone, etc.).

  • Activate the SE-02 Hardware Profile in Omnisphere 2.5 or higher.


Check to see if the necessary Boutique USB driver has already been installed by opening up the Omnisphere Standalone (or your preferred DAW) and verify the Roland SE-02 is on your list of MIDI inputs.

If the SE-02 is not listed as a MIDI input, download and install the driver that is compatible with your computer’s operating system from the Roland Support page. Restart the host and you should see it listed.

  • Access the System Settings by holding down EXIT while switching the power ON.
  • Press button [5] and using the VALUE knob choose USB.
  • Press the VALUE knob to save the setting.


Open your host (DAW, Standalone, etc.) and make sure the SE-02 is enabled as a MIDI input device.
