Here is what I was looking for ... although I wish they would demonstrate with SWAM instruments or at least some violin patches
Thanks for sharing. I can't wait until I get my hands on this (argh...summer 2020). It was interesting to learn that they are already working with the big names in the sample library industry to get their libraries to work with the Osmose. I guess I have to buy some more foot paddles and then I am turning into a one man live orchestra . Really fantastic sounding.Just discovered this via Sonic State. Looks amazing!
Hmm, seems they changed it again because the price they want for it now is 1205$/€ and claim the early bird price sold out.Thanks for the heads up. Definitely going to drop the deposit on this. Seems like they've simplified the terms: Deposit before Dec 31st -- final price of 1079$/€.
Also the deposit is refundable if you change your mind.
Have they given any indication on an actual release date? The site still just says winter.Expressive E added three more videos incl. Tom Holkenborg. No real new information yet but interesting to see what they had to say about their first impression trying out the Osmose. Now I really would like to see/hear how the Osmose will work as a midi controller with orchestral sample libraries/vsts. I am really exited to get my hands on mine in the summer..
I pre-ordered mine in early December. They mentioned "Delivery Summer 2020" in the preorder confirmation. So I believe that they will start shipping the pre-orders sometime in the summer and regular orders after that but no final shipping date has been announced yet (to my knowledge).Have they given any indication on an actual release date? The site still just says winter.
Put your "Continuum back on the shelf"???Well, now it can be said out loud and in public....
Expressive-E have an MPE keyboard! Each key is essentially a mini-version of their amazing Touche controller. The keys are sensitive to pressure and they wiggle side-to-side for pitch vibrato. I played a very rough early prototype and it's gonna be pretty amazing.
Put your Linnstrument, Roli, K-Board Pro4, and Continuum back on the shelf - the OSMOSE is, finally, a real MPE keyboard - and it's not made of rubber, neoprene, or fairy dust. It's also got the superb physical modeling synth engine from the Haken Continuum running on internal DSP, and of course is a full-featured MIDI controller with both 5-pin and USB MIDI. Coming soon with substantial discounts for early pre-orders. Watch the videos here and commence to drooling:
According to this piece on Engadget, full price is $1,799, but if you put down $299 before December 10th you get it for $1,099; on Dec 11th it goes to $1,149 and on Dec 22nd it goes to $1,199.
Expressive E isn't quite the household name that, say, Korg is. It's a small French startup with just a couple of niche musical devices under its belt. But its Touché and Touché SE are unique in the way they allow musicians to control and sculpt their sound. They're essentially expression pedals...www.engadget.com
Oh, sure, I'm a paid shill for Expressive-E. /sPut your "Continuum back on the shelf"???
The Continuum does everything this thing does and more (eg. slide, wider range)
Dude sounds like you are commissioned.
