Native Instruments has released EVOLVE, a KONTAKT-based instrument created by premier sound design house Heavyocity, the team behind DAMAGE and the EVOLVE MUTATIONS series.
The company tells us that EVOLVE offers a full-scale resource for cinematic sound design that brings together a vast selection of sounds, rhythms and FX, designed specifically for film composers and sound designers. Ni says that, with approximately 6 GB of sample content, EVOLVE provides a go-to resource for premium quality cinematic sounds, textures and ambiences. They tell us that a huge variety of styles are included in the instrument, ranging from punchy beats for dramatic tension, atonal stings for added suspense, or serene melodic lines for intricate tonal sequences.
A Native Instruments PR person told Sonic State, "The universally acclaimed EVOLVE was previously only available from Heavyocity, the leading sound design house who also created DAMAGE and the EVOLVE MUTATIONS series in partnership with Native Instruments. Now, for the first time, producers and sound designers are able to access this premier resource for cinematic expression in one place. Furthermore, EVOLVE has also been optimized for MASCHINE, allowing users to browse for sounds and categories directly from the hardware, for an enhanced workflow."
Pricing and Availability:
EVOLVE is now available for a suggested price of $229 / 199 EUR from the NI Online Shop. An upgrade for owners of EVOLVE MUTATIONS 1 or 2, or the bundle, is available for $119 / 99 EUR at the NI Online Shop.
