Output Releases Portal: Granular Synthesis Reinvented

Get into the far-reaching depths of PORTAL’s advanced features to dial in the exact sound you want. Here's what you need to know about Output's latest soft synth.  

With PORTAL, granular synthesis takes your sounds to another dimension. Easily alter any audio input—VSTs, drums, vocals, live guitar, you name it—in a new and musical way.

Experience the playability of granular effects that are actually centered around the music you make. While in the past granular sounds have been chaotic and abstract, PORTAL re-synthesizes sounds that are more closely related to the original input.

Get into the far-reaching depths of PORTAL’s advanced features to dial in the exact sound you want.

Advanced: Go beyond the presets and mess with grain controls, modulation and FX in PORTAL’s advanced features.

Time Stretch: Slow down and stretch your sounds, then easily sync them to your master tempo or leave them unsynced for a more experimental vibe.

Humanize: Add natural-sounding variations to envelopes for less repetitive, more organic sounds.

Pitch Shift: Alter the pitch of your sound without affecting its length or timing. Lock it into a scale for the most musical result.
