Expressive E Announces OSMOSE - Next Level Expressive Keyboard

With in-built EaganMatrix Synth      20/11/19

Expressive E today announce their brand new product the Osmose - its an augmented keyboard instrument, with intense levels of expression. You have what appears to be a standard keybed, but its in fact a custom designed on with two levels of pressure and side to side key movement.

Expressive E Osmose

Its 49 keys, and combines the expression together with an onboard sound engine which is the result of a partnership with Haken Audio. Namely the EaganMatrix instrument found in the Haken Continuum. The on board sound source it built to be highly expressive and so is a good match for the Osmose hardware.

We've seen an early concept for this and can say that it really does seem to offer great expression, while retaining a familiar playing style - and it sounds great.
 Osmose has been previewed to a number of artists who all seem to be similarly impressed:


Stay tuned - we have a video with the Osmose in the pipeline
