Tom Flint at Sound on Sound took SIGNAL for a test drive and loved the results.
“As you can imagine, SIGNAL is a very complex tool, but it also offers some quick and easy controls for those who want to make fast preset tweaks. For example, the main view provides four sliders which morph from one state to another when moved… And if all the modulations are becoming a bit too much, the pulse engine sections can be switched off with one button click leaving just the very nicely recorded source sounds and any effects that are in use.
“Some of the tools are not unlike those I’ve encountered when reviewing other Kontakt instruments like Sample Logic’s Xosphere and Cinematic Keys, but Output’s take on things is different. I found it very easy to use and was impressed with both the basic samples, which sound very nice, and the range of tools available for processing them. Sound designers could easily find themselves doing a lot of donkey work with this one instrument and electronic artists are sure to find it a source of inspiration.“
