OUTPUT Movement

Movement is Output’s first audio plug-in, but does it match the calibre of its previous sample-based instruments? Mark Cousins finds out…

Choice 9/10MusicTech

Over the course of its three previous products – REV, SIGNAL and EXHALE – Output has developed a range of Kontakt-based virtual instruments with a consistent level of ingenuity and creative flair. Anticipation for the company’s fourth release was high, then, but few expected that Output would make the bold jump between the world of sample-based instruments and the parallel universe of audio plug-ins.

Movement is Output’s first audio plug-in, and it’s designed to impart a range of rhythmic qualities onto any number of audio sources that you pass through it. However, given the high standards we’ve come to expect from Output instruments, does Movement make the grade as an audio processor?

To fully understand what Movement has to offer, it’s worth taking some time to describe its signal path and the creative possibilities it entails. Movement is powered by two parallel effects engines (A and B), each of which has up to four different effects slots that can be used to instantiate a range of signal-processing options, including filters, delays, reverbs, compression and distortion. What makes Movement really interesting, though, is the introduction of four rhythm generators, spread across the two FX engines. The rhythm generators are presented as LFOs, step sequencers and a sidechain input, all designed to add movement to the aforementioned, and otherwise static, FX engines.
