Output has announced Expansion Packs for their new software instrument, SIGNAL, which they describe as the world's most powerful pulse engine, combining the warmth of fat analog and digital synths with beauty of organic instruments. They tell us that SIGNAL, released on March 31st, has seen incredible success finding a strong following among composers, producers and sound designers alike.
The new expansion packs, Tape Loop and Cinematic, each offer 125 new Pulse Instruments (presets) made by Output's leading sound design team. Adding on to SIGNAL's existing 500 Pulse Instruments, SIGNAL owners now have an even greater arsenal of starting points.
Tape Loop includes pulse instruments utilizing SIGNAL's proprietary Looper, a feature much like a tape loop infinitely repeating while a note is held. This fun and unique tool ranges from gritty, worn out tape repetitions to clean minimalist patterns, all of which loop in real time and lock to tempo.
Cinematic features pulse instruments begging to be placed in film and TV. The 125 presets were all created with the composer in mind stretching from beautiful and haunting atmospheric pads and pulses, to high energy cinematic plucks and sequencers.
SIGNAL including the Expansion Packs is available today at outputsounds.com as well as authorized Output resellers worldwide.
