EaganMatrix Overlays - Sneak Peek with Electra One MKII Controller

video upload by EaganMatrix Programming

"A short description of the upcoming EaganMatrix Overlay support (previously named Specialty Synths) that will be part of the next Major EaganMatrix firmware release. The content here is very similar to what Ed Eagan presented at the recent ContinuuCon 2024, but here implemented using an Electra One controller instead of a MAXMSP program. The idea is that the interface is a simple a Midi CC control scheme (that does not require bidirectional communication), the user interface for which can be implemented in numerous ways, now even as a plugin. Note this video is not intended to be an instructional presentation on exactly how to create the interface. More detailed videos will come once the new firmware is released."

Sound Diary: May 2024 // Dictaphones & Expressive Instruments

video upload by Michael Manning

Performance starts at 8:36.

"This video is something I've been thinking about making for a while, creating a home for the music I write that sits outside of an album or soundtrack. Instead of aimlessly uploading jams and performances, I'm contextualising them with my thoughts and process more directly.

For this episode, I talk about some of the instruments I've been using to write with including the Erica Synths Dada Noise System 2, Haken Continuum Mini, Expressive-E Osmose and Battery Operated Mini Mello.

The future of EXPRESSIVE analog synths is HERE

video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

"I've been waiting 50 years to experience analog synthesizers responding intuitively and immediately to pitch, timbre and volume changes from the slightest movements of my fingers on a keyboard! In this video, you'll see and hear unprecedented control of one of the most extreme patches I've ever made. It incudes (4) Vintage ARP 2600's synthesizers and (1) Vintage 1969 Moog IIIc modular synthesizer playing all at once in unison mode or where each modular synth is playing a separate voice in the chord. I've never heard my favorite all-time analog synths sounding so musical, so different and just so good!

To accomplish this task, we are using 5 channels of Haken Audio CVC (Control Voltage Converter) to receive MPE messages from an Expressive E Osmose and also from a Haken Audio Continuum. These state of the art MIDI controllers are able to understand the players most subtle finger movements and immediately translate those messages to the CVC. Without any perceivable latency, the CVC can then send 4 independent control voltages to alter any parameter in real-time on any one of the synths being used as a voice.

My special guest, Osmose and Continuum expert performer Josh Madoff demonstrates all the features on both of these keyboards by playing musical examples. I'll be explaining what's going on, playing some duets with Josh and also providing an in-depth breakdown of the patches on each synth. I'm optimistic that we'l be seeing controllers n the near future delivering higher and higher levels of artistic experiences for performers. Please enjoy the this presentation and let us know what you think in the comments section. Thank you for your support, it means everything to us!

Call for Presentations
In addition to Lippold Haken, inventor of the Continuum Fingerboard and ContinuuMini, scheduled presenters include Edmund Eagan and Christophe Duquesne, developers of the onboard synthesis engine the EaganMatrix. If you have an idea for a presentation, please submit an informal proposal to as soon as you can. Presentations that incorporate some performance aspect are preferred. Presentations should be 30, 45, or 60 minutes in length. Applications can no longer be accepted after the available slots have been assigned.

About Haken Audio’s Instruments
The Continuum Fingerboard is a touch-sensitive, polyphonic electronic instrument that offers continuous multidimensional performance control by responding to each finger independently. The ContinuuMini is a smaller, more affordable duotactic model based on the same technology. Inside either is the EaganMatrix, a cutting-edge, user-programmable, digital modular synthesizer taking full advantage of the supple playing surface’s myriad performance possibilities. For Eurorack users, the EaganMatrix Module is a modular gateway to new musical explorations."

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Auld Lang Syne on Continuum & Osmose

video upload by JOSH MADOFF

"Thanks so much to Christophe Duquesne @anckorage for this amazing new Osmose preset, "Bouncing Pad"!

This was performed on the Haken Continuum and Expressive E Osmose. I have never played two synthesizers with such an incredible range of dynamics and expression. I really hope that this comes through in the performance.

Using the MPE Arpreggiator on the Osmose, this patch feels both unpredictable and organic. It seems like it's reading my mind, as the most imperceptible change in pressure simultaneously change both the sound and the Arpeggiator in very musical ways. The Osmose is known for attaining more expression through pitch-bend on a per key basis (the bendy keys), but I have actually turned that feature off for this performance. Even without per-note pitch bend, the extreme sensitivity of the keys controlling the MPE Arpeggiator, on a preset that is already in constant motion, gives me access to a vast universe of expression.

And thanks to the unmatched sensitivity and complete pitch freedom of the Continuum, this relatively simple patch feels like playing an acoustic instrument. It has all of the sensitivity, feedback, and nuance that comes with playing an acoustic instrument, as well as all of the difficulty and unpredictability. There are so many unplanned moments when I first touch a note, and the pitch is not perfectly in tune, then I intuitively slide over to correct it. It imbues each performance with a very human quality.

This is in no way a perfect performance, but I've left it as is. I believe that all of the imperfections make it more honest and human. (And some of these happy accidents hopefully make it more musical).

Thanks so much for watching and reading. I hope this year brings you peace, happiness and success :)

- Josh"

"Happy New Year 2024 - Osmose and Continuum Preset

The preset is designed to be played in several very different ways, the video is show several of them.
The recording is done using La Voix du Luthier's resonators mixed with the direct signal.

The Osmose version of the preset is adapted for the expression of the Osmose and also has some more editing macros
