    Signal Flow

    Discover how sound is generated and shaped in EXHALE. Sounds are triggered in either Notes, Loops, or Slices modes. Presets contain either one or two sound sources with independent volume, pan, tune, EQ, ADSR, & playback direction controls. The signal then runs through a selection of six effects modulated either by LFO or step sequencer. Seven insert effects without modulation are then available. Four macro sliders are used to control multiple parameters simultaneously for real time manipulation of the sound.
