Heavyocity releases Evolve

Heavyocity Media has announced the release of Evolve, a new virtual instrument that "supercharges creativity and streamlines productivity for modern composers and sound designers".

EvolveCreated by the TV and video game composers from Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design, Evolve is a virtual instrument powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt 2 Player. With an emphasis on the dramatic, it is geared toward film and game audio, as well as artist production and live performance. Sonically, Evolve doesn't just contain the typical sounds that form the foundation of most composers' setups. Instead, it accentuates them with a powerful combination of diverse percussion, massive stings/transitions and evocative tonalities in ways that have "never been heard before".

Evolve's signature collection features:

  • 600+ beat-sliced loops strategically key-mapped into 7 genre-specific suites.
  • 60 sequenced and arpeggiated percussive and tonal instruments.
  • 75+ modern percussion kits and instruments.
  • 45+ sting and transitional instruments.
  • 250+ tonal instruments and FX.
  • 3 custom scripted interfaces.
  • Nearly 6 gigabytes containing 3,900+ 24/16 bit samples.
  • Powerful user control features.
  • Intuitive key-mapping systems.
  • Enhanced creativity and productivity.

About Heavyocity Media, Inc.
Friends and collaborators since 1989, Berklee College of Music alumni Dave Fraser and Neil Goldberg formed Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design in 2003. Over the years, they've worked with a vast range of clients such as the NFL, Sony, GE, Gillette, Atari, Obsidian Entertainment, NBC, Discovery Channel, and many others.

Audio for these organizations must sound top-notch and be produced quickly to meet tight deadlines. This requires Dave and Neil to engage technology to its fullest and always keep up with the latest trends. In recent years, the need for a virtual instrument that could deliver unique, world-class sound in a more efficient and inspiring manner became evident. This led to the formation of Heavyocity and its launch title Evolve. "Evolve is the creative tool we've always wanted," says Heavyocity visionary Dave Fraser, "It's going to make people realize there's are different way to do things." Heavyocity co-founder Neil Goldberg adds, "As soon as you dive into Evolve, its power and potential to inspire creativity will be clear."

Rounding out Heavyocity's creative team are Composers/Sound Designers Ari Winters and Mark Kauffman. Ari holds a masters degree in Entertainment Technology from Carnegie Mellon and previously worked for Treyarch/Activision. Mark earned his degree in Commercial Music from Florida State and has an extensive background in audio production and creation for mixed media.

With more virtual instruments on the way, Evolve is only the beginning for Heavyocity.

Pricing & Availability
With an MSRP of $399 Evolve is available for Windows and Mac OS X in AU, VST, RTAS, DXi and Standalone formats via the included Kontakt 2 Player.
