Output has announced the release of EXHALE, which they describe as the first truly modern vocal engine. They say that EXHALE is a playable engine built for every composer, producer and artist seeking that cutting-edge sound in today's most creative music.

Output Founder Gregg Lehrman, told us, "As musicians, we've always wanted a vocal instrument that was cool, creative and modern, so we decided to build it!"

To develop EXHALE, Output tells us that they enlisted a huge team of acclaimed record producers, vocalists and sound designers to capture, manipulate and shape the sounds, resulting in an instrument that pushes creativity to a new level.

The engine features three distinct modes: Notes for chromatic playing, Loops for looping vocal elements, and Slices for sliced vocal phrases. Output says that you can 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. They believe that 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. EXHALE runs in Kontakt or Free Kontakt player version 5.3.1 or higher.
