Keyed Up Emotionally
According to manufacturer Expressive E, the new Osmose synth expands on a standard keyboard’s capabilities with Augmented Keyboard Action (a.k.a. AKA), which “gives the player three dimensions of continuous control for creating a closer bond between the player and the instrument.” While the Osmose can control external instruments and soft synths, Expressive E says its 24-bit onboard sounds have been optimized to take advantage of the expressive control offered by its 49 keys. The demo videos are impressive, and with a low introductory price, the Osmose looks like it has a lot of potential.
