You’re pretty much on the money. I’m not really interested in making droney warbly music or with achieving accoustic level vibes for percussive/flutes/etc but I have been very interested in MPE instruments over the years.
I get why Expressive E are pushing this heavily in their videos though as these are the sort of sounds that most easily demonstrate the keyboards capabilities. But for me, I’m more interested in the thought of hooking this up to Omnisphere (or something like that) and getting in to things.
I’ll need to go digging the synth engine videos. In its own way, the videos largely replicate the sort of experience you get with Elektron gear with it “four to the floor techno or forget it” initial experience. Im sure there are plenty of videos out there that I’d find interesting.
In any case, I have months to work this through and to make a final decision. I have owned the Touche and used that with synth sounds so I know what could be possible with Osmose which is driving the excitement for wanting to hear “traditional synth” sounds set up through the various dimensions offered.
For the specific target market, this thing is a genuine game changer though and I can appreciate why many are beyond excited for it.
