Expressive E Osmose Synthesizer


Expressive E provides an update on the Osmose, its forthcoming super-expressive synthesizer and reveals another of its unique features.


Announced in 2019, Osmose is designed to be one of the most expressive keyboards ever created. Osmose keyboard looks similar to that which you do find on a standard synth, the difference is that each key offers three dimensions of control.


In addition, the instrument contains Haken Audio’s EagenMatrix sound engine, which it developed for its Continuum Fingerboard. This combines digital, additive, FM, virtual analogue and spectral synthesis, topped off with some physical modelling.


In the latest Osmose development post, the company indicates that development and manufacturing of the Osmose was delayed due to Covid19, but the good news is that it currently anticipates that the first mass production units will be available in June this year.


Expressive E has also posted for what is to come by posting a new video that demonstrates the Osmose pressure-weighted portamento feature. Previously exclusive to the Haken Audio Continuum Fingerboard, this enables you to define a pitch interval within which two keypresses are interpreted as a legato line instead of polyphonic playing. Unlike regular portamento, pressure-weighted portamento reacts to the pressure ratio between the two notes. The pitch will dynamically glide between the notes in real-time, reacting to how the player distributes pressure.


The upshot is that you can control the likes of pitch slides, glissando and vibrato effects directly from your keyboard. Expressive E describes it as – the ultimate powerful performance pitch wheel that does not even require a second hand to play it.


The Osmose is set to cost €1,799 . Find out more on the Expressive E website.
