A redefining Drum Engine for the modern producer…

Imagine having instant access to the most visionary and forward-thinking library of drum sounds and sound design tools ever created. Imagine being able to intuitively layer, dynamically browse and modulate each layer independently with powerful Macro Controls and modular Step-lock Parameter Sequencing. Imagine a new way to create…

Evolution - Drum programming evolved.

Beyond evolutionary…

Evolution is a forward-thinking, truly modern Drum Engine powered by a ground-breaking library of 28,000+ electronic drums and sound design tools.

Featuring an incredibly slick design and unprecedented creative workflow, Evolution delivers an intuitive Drum Layering Engine and Browser, X+Y Pad, extensive modular Macro System, Parameter-lock Effects Sequencer, and extensive sound design parameters per Voice.

Evolution’s focus is not emulation - It’s about creating new, visionary drum sounds that push the boundaries of what was previously possible... It’s drum programming evolved.

World class sound library

Evolution’s sound engine combines beautifully designed analogue / electronic drums and live instruments in a ground-breaking new way.  A labour of love with an astonishing level of detail, Evolution’s sound library is our biggest achievement to date, spanning 5 years and thousands of hours of sound design. 

The sound content that powers Evolution was designed, layered and imagined from the ground up using a collection of impressive sources; sought-after modern / vintage analogue drum machines, powerful modular synths, world-class live rooms and acoustic instruments, sound design layering tools, found sound, processed Foley, prepared percussion, re-amped drums, tape machines, intricately layered abstract sounds, and much more… 

All captured by mastering-grade conversion via impressive analogue signal chains.

Powerful drum layering engine

Dynamically load any sound from Evolution’s expansive sound library into any of its 12 responsive Drum Voices. Creatively layer up to 3 Drum Sounds, Transients, and Sound Design Tools independently per voice using Evolution’s powerful and forward-thinking Drum Layering Engine. Each Layering Engine being completely responsive, making it easy to efficiently layer, edit, modulate, effect, mangle and mix each layer completely independent of one another / or as whole - the choice is yours! 

Blend, transform and morph between layers using Evolution’s impressive visual X+Y Pad screen…

Modular macros

Freely assign powerful mix, filter, and FX parameters to any of Evolution’s 8 modular Macro Controls (per voice!) for performance, sound design, or step-lock parameter / FX sequencing…
Each of Evolution’s 8 Macro Knobs features 42 available parameter destinations, independent modulation depth sliders for each drum layering engine, and a Macro Amount control.

Evolutionary integration

Evolution integrates seamlessly with your DAW, delivering infinite inspiration and a compelling workflow that will change the way you create... The beautiful user interface has been designed with both the composer and live musician in mind - All sound design parameters are beautifully thought out and accessible through use of clever dynamic graphics. Tempo sync is automatic, and exporting a sequences’ MIDI data to your sequencer is simple via Drag and Drop. 

A fully NKS-ready instrument, Evolution boasts impressive integration with Komplete Kontrol keyboards and Maschine - giving you the ability to access hundreds of presets and quickly dive into sound design with our custom mapped controls.

Sequence anything, anywhere…

Sequence, randomize and loop with Evolution’s powerful 12 voice fully responsive Note Sequencer, or dive into Evolution’s breath-taking FX Sequencer and sequence 8 Macro Controls per voice - as well as Pitch, Reverb, and Delay - delivering fully modular step-lock parameter sequencing and endless creative possibilities.   

Want to fine tune your patterns? No problem - Use the Zoom control to expand any lane for higher editing resolution and clarity. Mute and Solo voices directly from the sequencer, add swing / shuffle and accent, or apply random sequencer timing using Evolution’s Slop control. 

Beautiful effects

Evolution features a world class suite of high-end effects, filters, LFOs, delays and dynamics processors. Add separation to your drums with Evolution’s beautiful sounding dual Reverb Module - Packed with 190 custom high-end impulses from iconic reverb units such as the Lexicon 300L, EMT-250 Plate, AKG BX20 Spring, Fender Spring AMS RMX16 and many others; alongside lush acoustic drum rooms from world class studios, captured in high resolution. 

Evolve your drum sound with Evolution’s unique analogue style filters, envelopes, and analogue simulation controls. Enhance character with transient shapers, EQs, compressors and tape saturation – each available independently, per drum voice…
