EVOLVE is a virtual instrument that can be used for creating epic, cinematic sounds as well as adding atmosphere to just about any audio recording. It was the first in the line of successes that led to the EVOLVE Mutations series and DAMAGE that was developed by the team at Heavyocity. It is a cinematic sound resource that contains a wide assortment of sounds, rhythms, and FX, to bring new life to any audio project.
EVOLVE is powered by either the free KONTAKT player that comes with the package, or by using the full stand-alone KONTAKT 5 product which also comes with the Native Instruments KOMPLETE 8 packages. It contains a vast selection of sounds that range from rhythmic loop suites, to percussive kits, tonal instruments, musical FX, and much more.
EVOLVE contains almost 6 GB of samples that make it the go-to resource for premium quality cinematic sounds, textures, and ambience. It comes with a wide variety of styles for just about any genre of music and with the Trigger FX, you can switch effects in real-time for intuitive sound shaping.
Within EVOLVE there are four components: Rhythmic Suites, Percussive Kits, Strings and Transitions, and Tonality and FX. Within the four components, there are three custom interfaces aiming to bring enhanced creativity and productivity to everything you create.
The Rhythmic Suites contain looped percussives, looped tonals, sequenced arpeggiated percussives, and sequenced arpeggiated tonals. This component brings over 600 original tempo-synced beat-sliced loops as well as a one massive tonal loop suite (in addition to breakdowns). The genres include dramatic, electro tech, industrial, quirky, rock/pop, and tonal loop suites.
These are all geared to work well with one another. Creating dense rhythmic layers that sync tightly is incredibly easy with the intuitive key-mapping system Heavyocity has developed. Bass-type loops are found on the lower register of the keyboard, while higher frequency sounds are located in the upper ranges of the keyboard, and so on.
The arpeggiated instruments are easy to use through EVOLVE’s custom step-sequence arpeggiator. You can just grab one of the pre-programmed groove maps on one of the nearly 60 instruments. Experimental groove creation not only comes easily and quickly, but also produces a diverse range of interesting sonic results. The custom-scripted step sequencer is set up to be intuitive and the user-friendly controls (velocity, filter, and pan to name a few) give you the end result of solid percussion and tonality.
