Expanded levels of expression. The Expressive E OSMOSE provides a keybed you're familiar with, but with a whole world of expression under every key. The OSMOSE is a complete standalone polyphonic synthesizer that responds polyphonically to pressure, aftertouch and note bend. Seven years of hard work has gone into the OSMOSE and the result speaks for itself.
Each note of the OSMOSE can be swelled, articulated and curved to your hearts content. This is achieved using a deep modular sound design engine featuring hundreds of sounds for you to utilise. Delve even deeper into the OSMOSE's capabilities using the software editor, allowing you to create truly unique sounds. The OSMOSE can also be used as an advanced controller for hardware and software synthesizers. Take your sound design to a level you never knew possible with the OSMOSE.

Expressive E's new AKA technology provides three dimensions of control in every key of the OSMOSE. The result is a synthesizer providing unprecedented control more often found in acoustic instruments. The responsiveness of a keybed can have a major impact of the user’s ability to deliver a performance they are proud of. The OSMOSE ensures accurate response using high-resolution sensors. These respond to every nuance of your hand movements, ensuring details often missed on other controllers are defined.
This is achieved in a number of ways. Firstly, the keys provide a subtle yet accurate feedback when pressed. This ensures the user doesn’t have to overwork to create loud dynamics with the OSMOSE, whilst also guaranteeing soft performances are heard with the intended subtlety. The keys also provide superior depth to a standard keybed. This helps the player naturally perform more dynamically by pressing further into the OSMOSE for louder performances.
Expressive E have implemented the EaganMatrix sound engine from Haken Audio in the OSMOSE. This ensures the OSMOSE can be played without a computer or external hardware required. The EaganMatrix is a unique modular sound design environment. Ranging from virtual analog to physical modelling, and everything in between, the EaganMatrix provides infinite possibilities of sound creation. Straight out of the box, hundreds of sounds allow the user to start experimenting immediately. Alternatively, open up the editor and start developing your unique sound.
Intuitive sound editing features on the OSMOSE allow you to make radical sound design changes instantly. A macro control section is dedicated to altering the timbre, texture and effects of your sound. These have been precisely pre-mapped to ensure huge sonic changes can be done seamlessly.
The Continuum Editor, a software editing program available for Mac and PC, allows for even further sound design. The Continuum Editor encourages your creativity by putting the 3 control parameters of the AKA at the heart of the sound design process. The results are often unexpected and will instantly find a place in your music.
Create sounds you never thought possible with your current setup. The OSMOSE has a range of connectivity options that allow you to utilise your favourite hardware and software synths. This can also be achieved by running synthesizers through the OSMOSE that don’t respond to polyphonic aftertouch or MPE. The OSMOSE can be utilised as a classic keyboard controller when in piano mode. In this configuration, standard velocity messages are sent to your DAW/relevant outputs. The OSMOSE is also compatible with the major MIDI protocol from polyphonic expression and MPE+.
