Native Instruments releases Evolve Mutations
Native Instruments has announced the release release of Evolve Mutations, a powerful new instrument for movie, TV and game composers.
Developed in collaboration with renowned sound design house Heavyocity and powered by the industry-leading KONTAKT engine, this unique sonic resource includes an arsenal of highly expressive instruments, rhythms and ambiences that can add profound depth and impact to any dramatic piece of music.
As the successor of Heavyocity’s universally acclaimed “Evolve” library, EVOLVE MUTATIONS contains 275 new instruments based on 2 GByte of exclusive high-quality sample material. The material is organized into four categories that provide the crucial elements for powerful scores: “Rhythmic Suites” include stirring percussive and tonal loops complete with individual slices and keymapping; “Percussive Kits” allow the creation of original percussive beds; “Stings & Transitions” support a composition with striking and suspenseful transitional elements; “Tonality & FX” provide a range of highly expressive, evocative instruments and pads.
As a KONTAKT-Powered instrument, EVOLVE MUTATIONS offers intuitive playback and sound shaping functionality within the free KONTAKT PLAYER software, including efficient envelope, filter and effects control. All sounds can also be loaded into the full version of the KONTAKT 3 sampler for advanced sound editing.
Evolve Mutations is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for $119 USD / 99 EUR.
