Output, Inc. has released their new pulse engine, Signal, a virtual instrument focused on generating pulses, combining analog and digital synths with beauty of organic instruments. Inspired by the realization that nearly all music is centered on a pulse, Output gathered a team of 70 designers and developers to build an instrument that attempts to go beyond the conventional limits of synths and samples.
The new instrument features a 40GB library of multi-dynamic and round-robin samples recorded in Los Angeles and London. Where Signal sets itself apart, is 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, one can create a sound not yet heard previously.
