JUNE 23, 2020 (From remote locations all over the world) — Output, Inc. is thrilled to announce the release of THERMAL, an interactive effect that allows you to easily create powerful and layered distortion sounds.

For years, distortion and saturation effects have only seen incremental advances. THERMAL breaks ground with a multi-stage engine that goes far beyond what multi-band distortions traditionally accomplish, inviting experimentation and inspiring creativity. The XY control provides an easy interface to enhance harmonics by tapping into its layered engines, each with analog and digital distortion algorithms, effects, modulation and imaging.

“If you’re familiar with Output, you know we like to take traditional ideas and flip them on their heads,” said Output CEO, Gregg Lehrman. “Finding and using distortion should be less mechanical and more creative. It should inspire sound design.
