Osmose is the new standard for musical expressivity. Use intuitive gestures to control this standalone synthesizer and upgrade your playing & production skills. Press, bend, shake, strum & more to interact with keyboards & electronic sounds in a new organic way. Whether you’re a veteran keyboardist, a workflow-oriented producer, a daring sound designer, or anything in between, Osmose will take your musical journey to uncharted places.
Behind the expressivity of Osmose lies a few natural gestures you already know well. Discover how they interact with Osmose and enhance your musicianship from the very first touch.
Osmose is a collaborative project. We have thus teamed up with top musicians across the globe — from seasoned jazz & classical pianists to Grammy-winning trap producers - to make sound demos that help you see what Osmose can add to the music genres you love!
for every key
Sound is produced as soon as you brush the keys, with an incredible level of nuance & dynamics.
hi-resolution polyphonic aftertouch
Past a certain pressure threshold, a new sound variation is triggered, with tremendous level of control & dynamics.
polyphonic pitch control
Add vibrato to notes and bend them by intuitively shifting keys from left & right. Each key’s pitch variations can be independent.
the eaganmatrix sound
We designed Osmose’s keybed to pick up every gesture & performance nuance. We needed a sound engine that could interpret motion with the same degree of precision. The EaganMatrix continuously analyzes gestures and processes this data instantly to intimately control synthesis parameters. This allows for an organic connection between the player & the instrument, similar to a player’s interaction with an acoustic instrument.
EaganMatrix is a digital modular sandbox that offers a large palette of sounds. From virtual analog to FM synthesis, to physical modeling and more, Osmose displays an infinite landscape of unique, wild acoustic & electronic sounds. Every gesture & articulation can modulate various parameters of the synth engine in innovative & unexpected ways.
EaganMatrix is a laboratory of synthesis, made of unique building blocks for you to assemble creatively. If you want to go further with the sound design, the powerful EaganMatrix can be edited via the haken Editor (Mac/PC) software. Built to create advanced sound design for continuous instruments, the haken Editor goes far beyond classical modular systems by putting the 3 control parameters of A.K.A at the heart of the sound design process.
connectivityOsmose features various connectivity options to help you in live and studio settings. The Osmose back panel contains L/R 1/4” jacks, two pedal inputs, a MIDI In/Out combo, and a USB port. A headphone jack socket with its own volume control is also featured on the front panel.
Control your synth with Osmose’s Initial Pressure system & Poly Aftertouch. Every key can also control the global pitch bend of your synth.
You may not always need added expressivity. If needed, Osmose can act as a classic keyboard controller, sending simple velocity messages.
Set up your MIDI configuration directly from the in-built screen, without the need to connect to a computer.
