Output has announced Substance, which is described as "a new breed of bass engine built for the modern producer, composer, musician and sound designer".
Substance is a deeply produced bass engine for Kontakt, combining heavily processed electric and acoustic basses, real brass sections, and the dirtiest analog synths. The engine combines three layers of sources and blends them together with layer and global FX, filters, modulation, an advanced arpeggiator, flux control and macros.
"Our goal with Substance was to create a bass engine that was not focused on emulation, but rather, on pushing the envelope with creative and powerful new sounds," says Output Founder Gregg Lehrman. "It's our most sophisticated engine to date and you can really get a sense of that from the first note."
