NAMM 2020: Expressive E Announces Its New Release Plans for the Year

Anaheim, CA, January 15, 2020 — Following the successful announcement of its Osmose keyboard synthesizer, French electronic instrument developer Expressive E [Booth 10205, Hall B] is offering new insights into its upcoming product road map ahead of the 2020 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, January 16-19, 2020.

New Touché Software and Sounds

Expressive E remains focused on enriching the Touché and Touché SE software ecosytem. A new Liéupdate is in the pipeline, which in addition to workflow improvements will contain a brand-new free sound expansion called Carbone.

New Soft Synth: Noisy

Expressive E will soon release an all-new software synthesizer called Noisy. Its innovative synth architecture produces sound by feeding a noise generator into a bank of resonators. This unusual concept results in a very lively and organic sound, and as always, Noisy will work particularly well with expressive controllers.

Osmose Upcoming Release

Expressive E would like to thank the entire electronic instrument community for making the launch of Osmose synthesizer in late 2019 so successful. With the excitement brewing over Osmose’s entirely new A.K.A © Augmented Keyboard Action and its powerful and flexible EaganMatrix sound engine by Haken Audio, the Osmose pre-ordering campaign has completely sold out.

The whole Osmose team is now entirely focused on delivering the best instrument possible to its customers later this year. For that reason, they are staying in Paris during NAMM this year with the Osmose prototype, working to ensure a new version announcement of the synthesizer for Q2, 2020. The updated version will include new sounds and features not previously revealed.

At this year’s NAMM Show, Expressive E will present a retrospective of the Touché, uncovering the inspirations, origins, and development of the expressive controller’s design. Come to Booth 10205, Hall B to discover the Touché and Touché SE, along with their latest sounds, and learn more from the Expressive E team, or visit ExpressiveE.com.

About Expressive E:

The French electronic instrument developer Expressive E has created the award-winning Touché and Touché SE controllers, the award-winning Arché physical-modeling instruments and multiple soundbanks, including the MPE Collection. Expressive E’s mission is to improve the way musicians interact with sounds by creating a much more intuitive and powerful music-making experience.

The company debuted its first product, Touché, to bring the same emotive depth, playing sensation, and expression of acoustic instruments to the world of synthesizers and electronic music-making. As with an acoustic instrument, the users’ fingers tap, press, or trace across the wooden touch plate to create new sounds with astonishing dimensions.

Expressive E builds an open ecosystem of hardware and software products, letting musicians rediscover their hardware and software synths simply by using Expressive E’s presets or creating their own presets in the Lié software.
