WATCH: Expressive E unveils Touché video for Moogfest 2018

French instrument maker Expressive E has released a new video to celebrate its attendance at this year’s Moogfest, which kicks off today (17th May, 2018).

To promote their presence at the festival and to showcase the collaborative possibilities of its Touché products, Expressive E has shared a new video demonstrating the impressive sounds thatcan be created using Touché connected to classic products from the Moog Music range.

Thanks to built-in USB, CV and MIDI connections, Touché can be tightly integrated to both hardware and software synths, as shown in the video with a Subsequent 37, the Model D iOS app, and a DFAM, all from Moog.

The video also lets us see a custom wooden skin for Touché, labeled with a golden “Moogfest 2018” logo on it. This custom skin will be available as an add-on for each purchase of a Touché at the Moogfest. Units will be available on sale, at the “Modular Marketplace” inside the festival.

Also announced by Expressive E at the festival is the addition of new hardware presets for Touché and the Subsequent 37. Included with the latest version of Touché’s companion software, Lié, the presets feature custom MIDI CC mappings and program changes, and can be saved in one of Touché’s 24 slots of memory.

Designed to make Touché work seamlessly with any Subsequent 37, these hardware presets are custom mappings for the factory presets of Moog’s iconic synth, and no other configuration is required other than loading them up while Touché is connected via its MIDI output to the Subsequent 37.
