Output announces SUBSTANCE: All About The Bass

If you follow our reviews you’ll already know we have a soft spot for Output’s plugins, such as REV, SIGNAL and EXHALE.

Yesterday Output announced SUBSTANCE and this time it’s… all about the bass. In their words, SUBSTANCE is “a completely new breed of bass engine built for the modern producer, composer, musician and sound designer”.

Combining heavily processed electric and acoustic basses, real brass sections, the dirtiest analog synths, and insane sound design, SUBSTANCE is a deeply produced bass engine making sounds unlike anything else. 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.


  • A playable instrument with 300 presets
  • Powerful new 3-layer engine
  • Preset menu with smart tagging
  • Layer FX and global FX
  • 4 central macro sliders unique to each preset
  • Advanced arpeggiator
  • Monophonic and Legato modes
  • Built-in help menu
  • Rhythm page that syncs to tempo
