The new way to pulse

FAT analog synths and beautifully recorded live instruments combined in a ground breaking way.

Ebb and Flow

LFO. Step Sequencer. Arpeggiator. Tape Looper. Simultaneous rhythm engines tempo-locked in fluid synergy to achieve a churning sea of pulsing possibilities.

Straight from the Source

40 GB of organic instruments, analog and digital synths from 50 unique sound sources join forces to become the world’s mightiest pulse machine.

Pinpoint the Pulse

Intuitive tags make finding the perfect sound a piece of cake. And once you have your cake, you can eat it too. 500 built-in presets plus an expandable library of 550 more mean there’s plenty to go around.

You Pull the Strings

User-friendly macro sliders put you in the driver’s seat. Morph and shape pulses by altering multiple characteristics at once, and never break a sweat.

Don’t just take our word for it

“SIGNAL is a firestarter!”

Maschine Masters

“SIGNAL is mind blowing, as you'd expect from Output.”

Film & Game Composers

Ask Audio

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.
