Expressive E Touche Synth Controller

Revolutionary new expressive instrument that can control any hardware or software synthesizer
MFR# Touché

Product Description

Control your sound with a sensitive approach. Play intuitively with any synthesizer. Explore as yet undiscovered sonic territories. Expressive E Touché is the next step on your creative journey.

Touché can be linked to any existing setup, but also comes with tailor-made sounds and tools to make your own. To help you with this, Lié works hand in hand with Touché in a clear, simple workflow. Available in both VST and AU flavors, Lié is compatible with all major DAWs and offers a completely integrated solution at the heart of your rig.

THE SOFTEST OF TOUCHES FOR THE GREATEST OF SOUNDS

The design of Touché starts with an interface that is both sensitive and intuitive. The wooden skin of Touché reacts to the smallest vibration, the lightest pressure that you apply to it. It’s so reactive that you can play by swiping your fingers lightly across its wooden surface, and you’ll hear the sound change instantly. It feels natural and gives you a powerful connection with your music.

COMPLEX MECHANISM BEHIND A SIMPLE INTERFACE

Below the wood skin lies a mechanism that combines the quality of traditional craftsmanship with the extreme precision of modern technology. Its unique design allows you to play in four completely independent dimensions: two by pressing the skin up and down, and two by sliding it right and left. You control your sound with gestures that are at once intuitive and powerful.

THE DEPTH OF AN ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENT

Every instrument has a soul of its own. You can change its behavior to your liking, from the strings you choose to the pick you use, making it your own, personal experience. With Touché, you can choose to make it harder or easier to reach the maximum intensity of your sound. This is particularly useful when switching from progressive sounds to more percussive sounds, which requires great sensitivity.

ONE SOFTWARE TO BIND THEM ALL

Touché can be linked to any existing setup, but also comes with tailor-made sounds and tools to make your own. To help you with this, Lié works hand in hand with Touché in a clear, simple workflow. Available in both VST and AU flavours, Lié is compatible with all major DAWs and offers a completely integrated solution at the heart of your rig.

SOUNDS À LA CARTE

Lié comes with over 150 carefully designed sounds, built with one thing in mind: expressivity. These sounds are both tailor-made presets powered by UVI’s Falcon and shipped as instruments within UVI's Workstation, and presets for third-party plug-ins, enabling you to make music with Touché right away.

YOUR ENTIRE PLAYROOM WITHIN ONE CLICK

Lié works as a host of plug-ins. This means that you can load any of your virtual instruments and build your sound with the same interface you’re used to playing with, while choosing which parameters to control with Touché.

HANDS-ON CONTROLS

Whether you’ve built a new sound from scratch, or want to use one you already love, your next step is to unleash its full potential with Touché. Lié’s eight slots give you a quick access to the full list of your instrument’s controls. It’s even easier to use the Speed Mapping feature, and click on the faders you want to play with.

NEVER LOSE BRIGHT IDEAS

A quick recall of your configuration is vital for recovering your work as you left it, both in studio and performance situations. Scrolling through saved presets can also give you new ideas about how to approach a composition and tease out your inspiration. When you save a configuration, it contains everything, from the choice of your virtual instrument to the smallest of parameters you’ve set to control with Touché.

DEFINITELY LINKED

Knobs and faders are great for shaping your sound, but can be limiting when it comes to performing. Touché gives you an expressive way to control your hardware synthesizers, by directly linking your hand’s movements to the sound. Whether it’s a with a simple filter cutoff or a complex, multi-parameter setup.

EXTREME PRECISION UNMATCHED SPEED

Found at the heart of every modular setup as well as in standalone synthesizers, control voltage connectivity combines strong reliability with convenience. Touché has four independent CV outputs, which means that you can control up to four different parameters at the same time with a clean and pure analog signal.

BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO YOUR FAVORITE TOYS

Connect Touché to your instruments with its built-in MIDI output, and configure which Control Changes Touché sends with Lié. It works the same as with software instruments, in a unified, simple workflow. Once you’re done, you can even save that configuration right into Touché’s internal memory. Touché ships with over 30 hardware presets that saves you from hand-searching the Control Change names.

TAKE IT ON TOUR

Presets saved in Touché’s memory slots can be recalled when you perform live. This enables you to prepare your entire setup for the next song, and multicolor LEDs help you track which preset you’re using.

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!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

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.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

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.
