Output Sounds describe there new release SIGNAL as…
A revolutionary software instrument focused on generating pulses, combining the warmth of fat analog and digital synths with beauty of organic instruments.
I was inspired by their realisation that nearly all music is centered on a pulse, so Output gathered a team of 70 designers and developers to build an instrument that attempts to push beyond conventional limits of synths and samples.
SIGNAL features a 40GB library of multi-dynamic and round-robin samples recorded in Los Angeles and London. Where SIGNAL appraently is different is in how it allows for the combination of these synths and instruments across multiple layers and rhythms. Using the underlying step sequencers, arpeggiators, LFO’s and SIGNAL’s proprietary tape LOOPER, they claim you can create a sound not yet heard previously.
Although they admit SIGNAL is a hefty engine, they say that they have designed the interface to be friendly for those who want to start up and play immediately. Those looking to dive into effects, mods and sound design, will find the Advanced section complete with all the depth anyone might want.
Output Founder and CEO, Gregg Lehrman told us…
After a year-and-a-half of hard work, we are beyond thrilled to bring this powerful and inspiring instrument to music makers. This is a big milestone in our young but growing company and we’re excited to hear the music that people create.
SIGNAL is available today at Output Sounds priced $199 as well as authorised Output resellers worldwide. Output’s first product, REV, received critical acclaim and apparently became one of the most successful Native Instrument Kontakt instruments of 2014.
