Expressive E Touché MIDI Controller


Please contact me with information about availability and pricing for Expressive E Touché MIDI Controller




Touché is an innovative hand-operated MIDI controller for both software and hardware. Touché can connect via USB to a computer, standard MIDI to a keyboard or synth, or CV for modular synths. The control surface itself is an elegant wooden panel suspended on a rubber base, that can identify four different types of touch when performing. Touché ships with Lié - a program for configuring the control parameters. Lié can also host VST instruments, meaning you are able to control third party VST plugins too! There is also a collection of sounds included with Lié, with presets designed to demonstrate Touché’s capabilities.


    • Expressive E Touché PRODUCT FEATURES:

      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.

      A 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.

      Using Touchè with Software:

      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.

      Using Touchè with Hardware:

      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 multicolour LEDs help you track which preset you’re using.
