Who better to formally introduce 001, then, than one of the most brilliant synth design minds in the UK — Modal Electronics co-founder and Director Paul Maddox: “While we were elated by the worldwide reaction to 002, we were also aware that, for some, 002 was out of their reach. Also, in many modern music styles, a full 12 notes of polyphony isn’t always required. We’ve had a passion for monosynths for years — ever since creating the Monowave, but with 001 we wanted to create an outstanding performance instrument with sonic abilities to keep its users creative for many years to come. Through some innovative design work, we have managed to squeeze not one, but two discrete voices from 002, making it a truly duophonic — not a paraphonic — instrument.”
Output, a relative new comer to the virtual instrument market continues to make waves. Today they announced Signal. This is the second product (REV was the first offering from them and was very well received) offering from the new developer and looks to impress.
Signal offers up a compelling way to create pulsing rhythmic sounds while combining fat analog, shimmering digital synths and beautiful acoustic instrument sources. These sources are deeply integrated with powerful sequencing and LFO modulations. All of this is controlled through a clever GUI that is very pleasing on the eyes and inspiring. The macro controls and fast browsing experience looks to really enhance workflow.
I am looking forward to doing a full review on this product in the near future. Until then I’ll hold you over with these gorgeous shots and this nice video

Well this one has been a long time coming. I went out and did some extensive on location recordings. I altered drum kits, Bolted on sheets of metal to tom toms, ran them through crazy analog effects, and generally beat the living hell out of everything that I could find to make the best sounding hard hitting drums around.
