Note: Hardware presets and templates are only supported by the classic flagship Touché, not by Touché SE (Software Edition).
There are two types of Hardware Presets:
If you select a “Template” in Lié's Browser, you will see that in the drop-down list above each of the 8 Slots, the cryptic CC numbers are renamed according to the real names of the parameters from the selected instrument. This way, you won't have to refer to your synth's manual, only to know which CC corresponds to which parameter.
Hardware Template Presets are automatically installed with Lié. A complete list is available at the bottom of this page.
In addition to the generic, “Template” Hardware Presets, we offer pre-mapped Hardware Presets. These are tailor-made mappings for a specific factory sound in a hardware synth. They cleverly map Touché's axes of movement to parameters that suit the factory sound well. These Presets feature full parameter mapping instead of just CC renaming, making the experience even more plug-and-play. They also give you a good example of the parameters that could be interesting to control with Touché.
When loaded, each of these Hardware Presets sends a MIDI program change to the connected hardware synthesizer, so that its preset matches the preset of Touché. This will only work correctly if you haven't overwritten the relevant memory slot where Touché expects the factory sound.
Hardware Pre-Mapped Presets are available as free, separate downloads inside your Expressive E customer account, once you register your Touché. You can have a look and listen to all available sound packs on our website: Presets for third-party synths on the Expressive E website.
