Welcome to Output EXHALE, the world’s first truly Modern Vocal Engine. From the team behind acclaimed products REV and SIGNAL, comes EXHALE - an engine built for every composer, producer and artist seeking that cutting-edge sound in today’s most creative music.
For years, vocal instruments have provided a way to portray the sound of a real live singer or choir in a track. In speaking with music makers, Output found the number one frustration with vocal instruments was that nothing was modern, or in line with today’s current records, film scores and sound design.
The powerful engine features three distinct modes: Notes for chromatic playing, Loops for looping vocal elements, and Slices for sliced vocal phrases. 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. 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.
Real Producers Real Singers
We hired top record producers to capture hundreds of vocalists in bands. There’s nothing wrong with session singers, but we wanted imperfection and raw performances. And we also recorded a full choir.

21 amazing sound designers spent 6 months manipulating the raw performances. Vintage gear, analog gear, vocoders, tape machines, anything to mess it up in a good way.
