Next Level Air: Output Releases Analog Brass & Winds

Output's latest instrument, Brass & Winds for Kontakt breaks the traditional mould of what we expect from brass and wind instruments. They turn it on its head which is great for sound designers.  

February 7, 2018, LOS ANGELES, CA - Output Inc. is thrilled to announce ANALOG BRASS & WINDS, a virtual instrument for those who dare. Breaking from 400 years of tradition, this engine blurs the line between powerful orchestral sounds and legendary synths.

Output’s unconventional sound design flows through the pipes and valves of this engine. Big braams, gritty textures, ethereal winds blend together to give you the best possible combinations. Wielding our most intuitive interface to date, Analog Brass & Winds has built-in advanced modulation routing, dual tape loopers, dual arpeggiators, flux sequencing, and four macro sliders to breathe new life into all airy sounds.

Co-Founder and CEO, Gregg Lehrman, describes the instrument; “If you know Output, you know we love taking something traditional and flipping it on it’s head. From Stranger Things to Bon Iver to Future, we’re inspired by artists that use Brass and Woodwind sounds in new ways. So we set out to build a VST that pushes it even further - it’s part synth, part huge ensemble. It’s detuned, manipulated and raw. It doesn’t matter if you’re a producer, composer or artist... if you like your palette cool and weird, while still being musical, it’s for you.”
