Evolve Mutations 2 contains over 300 new sounds based on 2 GByte of samples. The material is organized into four categories:
- “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.
Evolve Mutations 2 also introduces the new “Trigger FX” feature, a sound processing section that takes advantage of Kontakt’s effects capabilities. With “Trigger FX”, the keys within a certain octave on the keyboard activate different specific sound treatments including saturation, panning, delay effects and more, which can be intuitively layered and combined to create special effects and transformations on the fly.
Evolve Mutations 2 offers playback and sound shaping functionality within the free Kontakt Player software, and can also be loaded into the full version of the Kontakt 4 sampler for advanced sound editing.
