Output, the makers of REV and Signal, return with Exhale, a modern vocal engine for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Exhale is a playable engine built for every composer, producer and artist seeking that cutting-edge sound in today’s most creative music.

“As musicians, we’ve always wanted a vocal instrument that was cool, creative and modern,” says Output Founder Gregg Lehrman. “So we decided to build it!” To develop EXHALE, Output enlisted a huge team of acclaimed record producers, vocalists and sound designers to capture, manipulate and shape the sounds. The result is an instrument that pushes creativity to a new level. Adds Lehrman “We provide the starting point, the rest is up to you”.

The powerful engine features three distinct modes: Notes for chromatic playing, Loops for looping vocal elements, and Slices for sliced vocal phrases. Quickly find and customize your sound on the Main page using 4 Macro sliders, or dive deep into modulation, mixing and effects on the Engines page. With over 500 presets, many of which include full banks of loops and slices, there’s literally a world of starting points to help you be creative.

  • 3 Modes: Notes, Loops & Slices
  • 10 GB raw material
  • Custom FX Presets
  • Custom Macros Per Preset
