Watch Expressive Wooden Controller for Synths, Touché, In Action

We’ve seen the teasers (which didn’t show many hints of the product in the works) and now Expressive E have released a video showing their new Touché expressive synth controller in action.  

Finally, after waiting a long time and listening to renowned artists and producers talking about how revolutionary Touché will be, we’re a little bit wiser about the new controller. This wooden (yes, wooden) skinned controller is very sensitive with four expression controls and mechanical force feedback.

“Touché’s wood surface has been designed to react to the smallest vibration, the slightest pressure of your hand, allowing synth players to shape sounds spontaneously, like an acoustic instrument.

"Its companion software allows for customisation of parameters, while MIDI, CV and USB ports allows Touché to control any digital or analog synthesizer, with or without a computer.

"That’s why Touché is the perfect device to use with a synthesizer for more inspiration and fun!”

Watch the video showing Touché in music making action with a range of synths:
