Are Heavyocity Boxed Products Available?
To keep the cost of our products as low as possible without sacrificing content all Heavyocity instruments and libraries are available as digital downloads only.
First, make sure you have the latest version (184.108.40.20666) of the Kontakt 5 (Player). Kontakt error messages are common when a preset is loaded in an older version of Kontakt. If that does not fix the issue, please contact us at: support(at)heavyocity.com
All of our products are powered by the Native Instruments Kontakt Engine. Make sure to “add” your library to Kontakt (Player) by clicking the “add library” button on the top left of the Kontakt Browser. Next, Navigate to your library folder and click “Choose”. You will now be able to activate the library via NI Service Center. If you receive an error message, first make sure you have the latest version of the Kontakt (Player). Kontakt error messages are common when a library is loaded into an older version of Kontakt. If that does not fix the issue, please contact us at: support(at)heavyocity.com
Evolve, Evolve Mutations, and Evolve Mutations 2 are all separate products. There is no shared content in any of the 3 libraries, meaning you won’t find presets from one product in the others. The Mutations products are a bit more glitchy and tweaked, whereas Evolve has a more organic feel to it. Evolve is around 6GB of sample content, and just over 1100 presets. For more information on the differences between the 3, please visit our product comparison page.

We don’t recommend getting the update. This latest version of EVOLVE contains the exact same content and features as your current version. What’s more, any projects where you’ve used EVOLVE previously will still require the old version to function. Plus, installing the new version will take up unnecessary disk space, and duplicate your library tab entries.
You have 2 options. If you would like to gain the added functionality, but do not want to duplicate your library tab entries and disk space usage, you can download the free 1.5 upgrade (found in the downloads tab on the Evolve product page). If you plan on using Evolve with Maschine, you can download the new Evolve for the added maschine functionality. Please visit Native Instruments’ EVOLVE FAQ page and fill out the support form to request the free update.
