Addictive Synth is one of the few synths out there with MPE.
 
Stagecraft has another MPE capable plugin,  Infinity Synth, which is available FREE at Plugin Boutique.

Marco Parisi shows a ROLI Seaboard Grand can almost perfectly mimic a guitar!

Nah, even at that price I don’t care for this much. But I’d love to see a product called Addictive Synths!

MPE is a recent addition to the MIDI spec, MIDI polyphonic Expression. Essentially a lot of companies that make unusual controllers with increased expressiveness (Roger Linn, ROLI, Haken, Joue, Madrona Labs, etc) got together so that their controllers could all could speak to each other.  The creation of this spec makes it possible for more MPE controllers (like the Sensel Morph and Keith McMillan's K-Board 4) and more MPE capable synths.  
 
As I have a ROLI, I downloaded the free synth. I had trouble installing it at first, but it does have MPE.  Don't think I'd ever use it, but it does have MPE. 
 
While there are a lot of controllers now, there are very few synths that have MPE at the moment. Many are on iOS. The main desktop ones are ROLI's own Equator and FXpansion's Strobe 2.   FXpansion is owned by ROLI.  Falcon has a few MPE patches.  
 
You can use a ROLI or another MPE controller with Kontakt and Omnisphere, but they are not fully MPE compliant.  You can get some of the capability out of them, but not all, and it takes a lot of work to set up a single patch.  So it is an event at this moment in time to have an MPE synth available for free or ten bucks.

This list is a little exaggerated.  When you actually try to use some of these (HALion, AURAS, etc) you see that they are not MPE.  You can use them by setting up your ROLI controller in multi-mode, not MPE mode, in ROLI Dashboard.  Which means, yes, you can use them with your ROLI, but they aren't full MPE spec. 
 
Unless the program or synth allows you to select MPE, then it isn't MPE.  On the free Infinity Synth, there is a button that allows you to select MPE.    Most of the iOS synths (NOISE, Volt, Model D, Animoog) are like this. 
 
The truth is you can use an MPE controller with pretty much anything if you set it up to only send data via MIDI channel 1.  But the most important aspect of MPE is that every note you play goes out over a different MIDI channel (from 2 upwards)  AURAS solves this by making every patch a Kontakt multi with lots of sounds on different MIDI channels.  Falcon offers a few MPE patches.  Someday I'm sure they will sell expansion packs for Falcon that have MPE presets, and you certainly craft your own, but this is different from something like Equator or which is MPE.  But to call Falcon an MPE synth is a bit of an exaggeration today unless you make all your own patches.  
 
That is the main problem with having a ROLI today.  You can do great things, for example, with an Orange Tree Samples guitar library, but you have to put a little labor into it.

That said, I'm sure a lot of those synths are fully MPE and I'll probably be getting many of them in the coming years. Upgrading to Strobe 2 from Strobe Player is my next move. They have some sweet expansions for it. Having a ROLI makes you hungry for MPE instruments.
