Expressive E, the company behind the innovative and unique expressive instrument Touché, are announcing Touché SE, a refined, USB-only version for software applications.
Touché SE (“Software Edition”) is a new instrument for adding expression, depth and musicality to software synthesizers and plug-ins. It responds to both the lightest and the most intense gestures, giving users immediate, intuitive control of their sounds. Musicians, producers and sound designers can unlock instant, real-time control of multiple parameters at once, creating complex and evolving new sounds using intuitive slides, taps and touches of the Touché SE control surface.
Touché SE shares the same build quality, patented mechanism and sound library as the classic Touché, refined with USB-only connectivity for software applications, and a new polycarbonate touch-plate. Expressive-E have expanded the sound library to include more than 200 factory sounds, pre-mapped to take full advantage of Touché SE’s extensive control capabilities, as well as including more than 200 presets for third-party VST instruments.
Additionally, Touché’s companion software Lié allows users to easily host and unlock the true potential of their third-party VST instrument library. Users can quickly map parameters to the Touché SE interface, creating sounds and performances with an expressive depth they may never have realised their software was capable of.
Touché SE retails at just 229$/€ and is available for orders worldwide starting Monday 17th of September 2018.
Expressive-E has produced a Touché SE launch video, which will be live Monday 17th September at 6PM (CEST), 5pm (BST), 12pm (EDT), 9am (PDT) at the following address: www.expressivee.com
