Ableton Tutorial: Using Exhale to Generate Incredible Ideas Easily

In this tutorial you will see why I chose Exhale by Output as my favorite instrument (VSTi) of 2016!

In this video tutorial I will show you how to extract a chopped-up tech house vocal loop’s rhythm in Ableton Live. Then we will use that rhythm in conjunction with Output’s Exhale vocal engine to generate a number of incredible sounding loops of our own!

This video is meant to demonstrate some of the elements found in the Exhale+ Vocal Bundle at Plugin Boutique. I highly suggest grabbing the bundle if you like what you hear in this video or if you are serious about produce and/or recording vocals.

Welcome to EXHALE, the world’s first truly Modern Vocal Engine. From the team behind acclaimed products REV and SIGNAL, comes EXHALE – an engine built for every composer, producer and artist seeking that cutting-edge sound in today’s most creative music.

For years, vocal instruments have provided a way to portray the sound of a real live singer or choir in a track. In speaking with music makers, Output found the number one frustration with vocal instruments was that nothing was modern, or in line with today’s current records, film scores and sound design. That is the world of EXHALE.

Key Ingredients in the Development of EXHALE:

  • Top producers recording real singers (no session musicians) and a choir.
  • 25 Sound Designers tweaking for 6 months for the perfect sounds.
  • Sounds crafted with endless analog and vintage gear, tape machines, vocoders and more.
  • Engine built from the ground up with industry leading modulation, tempo synced FX, pitch shifting and more.
  • An immense focus on musicality.
