A vocal engine for today's modern sound

As musicians, we’ve always wanted (and could never find) a vocal product that captured the modern sound of today’s records and most creative scores.

Awe-Inspiring Vocals

We asked today’s most sought-after producers to elicit breathtaking performances from the crème de la crème of session singers, band leaders, and choral ensembles.

Play it Your Way

Thanks to three independent engines, Exhale’s adaptive samples can be utilized as loops, slices, or chromatic sounds. In other words, there’s no way it can’t be played.

Seasoned to Perfection

Through the collective wizardry (and outboard gear) of 21 spectacular sound designers, every raw vocal performance has been souped up to make waves in the modern music scene.

Easy Tweaks

Hard to believe, but this is just a starting point. Fiddle with every imaginable facet, from macros and FX to the loops themselves, and make your sounds go the extra mile.

Don’t just take our word for it

OUT NOW: Funky Lo-Fi – New Kits for Taped ⁠

Lo-fi doesn’t have to mean low-key. These new Kits are the antithesis to “study and relax” — saturated, rolled-off, and packed with overbearing confidence.

We spoke with house and techno artist @demuir about the lack of diversity in dance music and the institutional need for action and change. “It’s an interesting thing with electronic music. There’s all this discussion about peace, love, unity, and respect, but what gets executed are clear biases.” Check out the feature at the link in our bio.⁠

@kennyhoopla is on a mission to redefine alt-rock nostalgia. We talked to the singer/songwriter about working with @travisbarker, genre-slashing indie rock, and what it’s like to make waves from the small town of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Check out the Q&A at the link in our bio.⁠

More love for our #Frontier Studio Monitors 😇 thank you for sharing your setup @kennylarkinofficial

REPOST 🔁 • Excited to add these little beauties, made by Output, to my monitoring chain. Barefoot Sound designed the electronics and Output took care of the exterior design. I just received them, so still getting use to the sound. But I love what I hear so far. Great job guys!

Black composers like William Grant Still, Nathaniel Dett, Florence Price, and William Dawson are foundational names in America’s buried classical history. Born in 1895, Still composed nearly 200 works including five symphonies, four ballets, eight operas, and over thirty choral works. He also arranged music for films, including 1937’s “Pennies from Heaven” with Bing Crosby. As the LA Times wrote in 2019, “His ‘Afro-American Symphony’ distilled the pain and yearnings of a people brought to this land in bondage and forced to endure generations of racism.”

Output is committed — not just this month — to using our platforms to amplify Black voices, and do our part to dismantle the whitewashing that’s been part of the music industry for generations. If you are a Black creator with something to share, tag us @output.
