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
