A New Breed Of Bass Engine

Buying Choices

Output has announced SUBSTANCE, which they describe as a completely new breed of bass engine built for the modern producer, composer, musician and sound designer.

Output says that, combining heavily processed electric and acoustic basses, real brass sections, the dirtiest analog synths, and insane sound design, SUBSTANCE is a deeply produced bass engine making sounds unlike anything else. The engine combines three layers of sources and blends them together with layer and global FX, filters, modulation, an advanced arpeggiator, flux control and macros.

Output Founder Gregg Lehrman, told us, "Our goal with SUBSTANCE was to create a bass engine that was not focused on emulation, but rather, on pushing the envelope with creative and powerful new sounds. It's our most sophisticated engine to date and you can really get a sense of that from the first note."
