Instrument Details

Instrument Details

The sound of Evolve Mutations comes from Rhythmic Suites, loops, kits, and effects, all powered by the Kontakt 5 (Player) engine. All loops and kits are designed for seamless layering and maximum flexibility, and loosely classified in four styles: Epic Organic, Epic Tech, Industrial Electronic, and Mangled Pop.
EM Rhythmic Suites

Rhythmic Suites (Loops)

Massive crunchy beats, walls of tweaked percussion, and next-gen tonal elements make up the Rhythmic Suite categories. The percussive loops are broken down into slices and mapped into individual presets allowing the user to rearrange and create their own loops.
EM Percussive Kits

Percussive Kits

Ranging from twisted drum kits to unique impacts, this category puts a variety of percussive sounds at your fingertips. Made up of 5 different menu-style kits, the Percussive Kits are best used as one-off hits or as elements to build your own beats.
EM Stings and Transitions

Stings & Transitions

Offering distinct new ways to heighten emotional impact, this category is perfect for adding terrifying or serene punctuation to a film soundtrack or unique textures to the breakdown of a song. The category is comprised of several menus in addition to the associated sounds mapped onto individual presets.
EM Tonality and FX

Tonality & FX

A mashed up array of instruments that stray from the traditional “meat and potatoes” sounds that many composers already have. From organic, otherworldly soundscapes to gnarled-out synths, to treated melodic instruments, these sounds will bring an innovative quality to your arrangements.

    Jason Graves

    “Mutations delivers dry, in-your-face sounds that ooze style and character. It’s also aptly named - the simple but powerful interface allows radical manipulation and sonic mayhem, which is a must for those of us looking to make every sound ‘our own.’ And of course, in the tradition of Evolve, it sounds like a million bucks and sits perfectly in all of my mixes.”

This is a perfect compliment to the already diverse Evolve. Once again, right out of the box, these sounds lit a massive brush fire of ideas in my head, that kept spreading and expanding. An all around a must have!"

Industry Accolades for Evolve Mutations

  • Computer Music Magazine – December 2009 Issue, CM 146

    Reviewed: Evolve Mutations

    Awarding Mutations a 9 out of 10, CM sums up the library, “…addictive, immediately creative and great if you need to come up with parts in a hurry.” “…the overall sound is a touch dirtier, with a gritty industrial edge, albeit tastefully done. The pack is ideal for sinister soundtracks, but pretty much anyone should find use in these superb, inspirational sounds, including owners of the original Evolve.”

  • Electronic Musician Magazine – January 2010 Issue

    Reviewed: Evolve Mutations

    EM awarded Evolve Mutations with the “EM Hot Pick”, along with a perfect score of 5 out of 5. “…Mutations is a terrific companion library to Evolve. Once again, Heavyocity has pulled out the stops to deliver a palette of evocative tools for any modern electronic composer’s canvas. Mutations will surely find its way into film scores, and it gets my highest recommendation.”

    Reviewed: Evolve Mutations

    Karl Foster writes an incredible and entertaining review, stating, "In all, the Heavyocity crew has created sterling stuff... The bundle is a boon for soundtrackers and, with Kontakt, provides an excellent resource for composers and performing musicians. You’ll likely end up losing hours exploring possibilities, out of the sunlight, locked in your project studio, starving, skeletal, looking like a mutant. Wan, too."
