Osmose

enhance your
playing experience...

Discover an instrument you can play like never before, where every note can be uniquely swelled, articulated, and curved.
Where every sound will offer you brand new playing experiences. Let's discover your new abilities:
The Initial Pressure on every key is capable of capturing a very wide palette of subtle taps.
The Initial Pressure on every key is capable of capturing continuous gestures with absolute precision.
Tapping a note, or swelling a note, can each be interpreted as different actions to provide completely different results.
Osmose's pitch is mechanical, and that changes everything. Play Vibratos and Bendings like never before.
Ultra-Dynamic Polyphonic Aftertouch: adds an extra level of sound control, with an unparalleled sensitivity and playability.
Vibrate a note to add articulations to your sound.
Push a single key to 'strum' a whole range of notes.

Osmose

Carefully designed

The magic of a performance is found in the tiniest of details. Our goal was to create an instrument with style, manufactured with utmost care. We paid great attention to the manufacturing and finishing quality of the materials, their colors and different textures.
Osmose

Respecting your playing skills

We kept the keyboard form factor, but added revolutionary new capabilities. Osmose was crafted to enhance everything about the playing experience, but without compromising your core skills with a keyboard. All with one thing in mind: Go far beyond what a keyboard was capable of before.
Osmose

Adjustable sensitivity

Every musician develops a unique playing style. Sometimes the instrument needs to adapt, to suit a particular sound, or play more comfortably.
Osmose lets you trim sensitivity on the front panel in seconds, for a playing experience that always suits you.
Osmose
new chapter

let's start
a new chapter
in music

Combining traditional craftsmanship and modern technology, Osmose is the result of more than 7 long years of research and development. This was all made possible thanks to an unprecedented partnership with Haken Audio. Many musicians, composers, pianists and keyboardists also generously shared their ideas and feedback, so we could create an instrument that truly met their expectations. Together, we have created something new. Now, it's over to you.
Osmose
