EXPRESSIVE E Touché MIDI/CV/USB Control Surface with Lié Software

$ 399.00

The Expressive E Touché is a MIDI/CV/USB control surface designed to add expressiveness to your hardware and software synthesizers. The highly sensitive and intuitive interface features a wooden skin which reacts to the smallest vibration and the lightest touch. The controller's reactive interface can be played by swiping your fingers lightly across its wooden surface. Underneath the wooden skin lies an advanced mechanism with extremely precise craftsmanship that allows you to play in four completely independent dimensions: two by pressing the skin up and down, and two by sliding the skin left and right. This gives you dynamic control over your sound with simple and intuitive gestures. The Touché can be operated as a standalone unit with a variety of analog and MIDI synthesizers and includes four 3.5mm CV outputs, as well as MIDI I/O via 3.5mm to 5-pin DIN adapters.

The included Lié software helps you setup the Touché to control your synthesizers. It is a plug-in host with a complete mapping interface and preset browser. Lié also lets you select which MIDI CC and CV voltages the Touché sends, and saves the information into one of the unit's 24 memory slots.

Lié also includes the UVI Workstation plug-in with over 150 factory presets, as well as several software presets for Massive, Monark, Razor, Prism, Diva, Sylenth, the Arturia Collection, and more. There are also over templates and presets for a variety of hardware synthesizer manufacturers, such as Moog, Korg, Arturia, Elektron, Nord, Novation, Roland, Dave Smith, and more. The Expressive E Touché ships with a USB cable, two breakout MIDI adapters, and a ground-loop adapter.
