Expressive E Osmose 49-Key Augmented Keyboard Synthesizer

Standalone synthesizer, MPE MIDI controller, and classic MIDI controller featuring 49 full-size keys with three-dimensional control and EaganMatrix - a digital modular engine by Haken Audio

MFR# XPEOSM49-1

Product Description

Combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technology, the Expressive E Osmose is the result of more than 10 years of research and development, as well as feedback from world-class artists. Osmose introduces new physical gestures, allowing musicians to interact with sounds and produce music. It does this while not only respecting, but also enhancing the player’s existing keyboard skills. Every note can be articulated independently with unique expressive possibilities.

THE EAGANMATRIX SOUND ENGINE

Offering new levels of expressivity required a seamless interaction between Osmose’s unique keybed mechanism and its sound engine. Logically, Expressive E has partnered with Haken Audio to integrate its powerful EaganMatrix sound engine with Osmose. Its modular sound engine combines many types of digital synthesis (including physical modeling, FM, and more), making it a workflow-oriented soundbox. Osmose ships with more than 500 presets, and each of them has been manually customized with efficient macros that open new realms of sound exploration.

A PLAYFUL PLAYING EXPERIENCE

All the internal sounds in Osmose’s large library are tailor-made to take advantage of its unique keybed. Osmose’s unique sound identity is a combination of highly detailed acoustic, electronic, and hybrid sounds that will easily add nuances and variations to any music genre. These sounds were carefully crafted to react to a player’s slightest movements and make use of the keys’ three-dimensional sensitivity in a unique way to create effects such as strummed notes, vibrato, legato, layered dynamics, and much more. As a result, discovering and controlling Osmose’s sounds is refreshing and fun!

BUILT TO EMPOWER EXTERNAL SYNTHS

On top of being a traditional MIDI keyboard controller, Osmose can also interface with computers and other instruments as an MPE MIDI controller. It also offers polyphonic aftertouch support, a Multichannel MIDI mode, and global pitch bend. All of these changes can be made directly from the Osmose interface, with no need for a computer.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
