Native Instruments releases EVOLVE sound library by Heavyocity

Native Instruments has announced the release of EVOLVE, a KONTAKT-based instrument created by premier sound design house Heavyocity, the team behind DAMAGE and the EVOLVE MUTATIONS series.

Native Instruments EVOLVE

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. With approximately 6 GB of sample content, EVOLVE provides a go-to resource for premium quality cinematic sounds, textures and ambiences. 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.

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.

EVOLVE is available to purchase for a suggested price of $229 USD / 199 EUR. An upgrade for owners of EVOLVE MUTATIONS 1 or 2, or the bundle, is available for $119 USD / 99 EUR at the NI Online Shop.

Native Instruments introduces Damage by Heavyocity

Native Instruments has announced Damage, a new instrument that provides hard-hitting cinematic percussion for professional movie scoring and high-impact music production.

Created by premier sound design house Heavyocity and powered by the latest KONTAKT 5 engine, this unique sonic resource expertly combines industrial sounds and orchestral percussion to add true wide-screen character to any dramatic piece of music.

Native Instruments Damage

As the successor of Heavyocity’s universally acclaimed “Evolve” series, DAMAGE was created over the course of two years involving unique recording and sound design techniques. The instrument is based on over 25,000 individual samples recorded in 24bit/96Kz using state-of-the-art equipment, resulting in 30 GB of source material. Sounds were captured in a variety of locations ranging from various high-end studios to a Connecticut junkyard, and comprise all possible types of percussion from traditional instruments to exploding cars and cranes dropping objects from great heights.

DAMAGE contains over 700 beat-sliced percussive loops as well as 58 multi-sampled kits, including an arsenal of unique “Damage Hits” for distinctive stings and transitions. Loop Menus can be mixed and matched easily to create complex layered rhythms, while Single Loops offer detailed playback control for intuitive sound tweaking. Certain kits are based on sophisticated ensemble-style recordings, with multiple velocity and round-robin layers, to provide true performance dynamics and a wide range of impact.

The sounds are complemented by a specifically designed effects section that includes the versatile new Trigger FX 2.0 real-time sound mangling suite as well as the central “Punish” knob for seamless increases in pressure and intensity. As a KONTAKT-powered instrument, DAMAGE offers all relevant playback and sound shaping functionality through the free KONTAKT PLAYER software. All sounds can also be loaded into the full version of the KONTAKT 5 sampler for advanced sound editing.

Damage will be available in November for a suggested retail price of $339 USD / 299 EUR.
