The above video is a brief overview showing some the general parameters of Evolution, and not in any way a showcase of the sound engine.
Take a listen to the below audio demo:
Each section of this demo was created using only one instance of Evolution, and no external programming. The entire demo showcases a very small amount of what is possible, utilizing around 800 sounds from Evolution's 28,000+ sound library. In fact, there are barely any 'classic / rompler' type sounds in Evolution. You can view the gear list in an above post, and each and every sound in Evolution was designed from the ground up using high end gear, layering, with usually over an hour spent refining and designing each sound individually. Over 5 years of work
To listen to Evolution in a song context, here is a song produced using one instance of Evolution - all drums from Evolution with no external processing:
We also went through great lengths with the acoustic sound sources for Evolution too, recording everything over a long period in world class drum rooms, using unconventional mic techniques, bowing, breaking, re-amping, layering, dropping things on drum heads, recording tape hiss/ vinyl noise / re-recording and pitching to analogue tape etc.
