The Arcade loop synthesizer will feature new downloadable content every day for a subscription of $10 per month, but free for the first 100 days.

June 12, 2018, Los Angeles, CA - After years in the making, Output Inc. has announced Arcade, a playable loop synthesizer with new content every day. Like a Netflix or Hulu for music makers, Arcade also packs powerful tools to transform loops until they sound like you.

With Arcade, Output has eradicated countless folders and websites from the search process to speed a musician’s workflow. Tempo and pitch-locked loops are organized into sonic worlds and available directly within the Arcade plug-in. Playable kits contain curated loops dialed in with 11 effects, customizable sliders, advanced modulation and Output’s proprietary black key modifiers, making it easy to tweak on the fly.

With respect to every artist’s unique voice, users can also drag and drop their own loops and samples to manipulate them with the same creative tools.

Founder and CEO, Gregg Lehrman says “All you have to do is watch someone use Arcade for 5 minutes, and you grasp the impact this will have on music production. Our goal from day one has always been to help musicians be creative. I think this is a huge next step in the fulfillment of that vision and can’t wait to hear how it inspires and transforms music.”

For $10/month and free for the first 100 days, Arcade is updated with new features, product lines and loops all the time. Arcade is available now exclusively on Output.com.

Price: $10/month subscription, but free for the first 100 days—cancel any time.
