Expressive E has shared another video preview, embedded above, for their upcoming Osmose synthesizer.
The video offers a sneak preview of the current state of new sounds that their in-house sound designers are programming, using the EaganMatrix by Haken Audio, the synth engine that will be internal to Osmose.
These sounds range from different categories such as classic synth sounds, FM keys, cinematic pads, lo-fi experiments and effects, all taking advantage of the new keybed interactions offered by Expressive E’s Augmented Keyboard Action.
For an example that showcases the capabilities of the Augmented Keyboard, check out the pad FM 5 Ops example, which shows how individual notes within a chord can be independently modulated in expressive ways.
Note: Expressive E says that the unit shown in the video is a prototype, created with 3D printing techniques. As a result, it has some irregularities in the keyboard that will not be in the final manufactured product.
Pricing and Availability
The Osmose is expected to be available in Winter 2021, priced at 1799$/€.
