The Main Page

The main user interface was designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind, so that you can focus on the task of making great music rather than searching endlessly for the necessary tools!

Main Controls

The Main Page provides you with all of the following controls to help you shape the initial sound (dependent on the patch being used):

On the left-hand side of the interface:

  • ATT (Attack) – Controls the attack (fade in) time.
  • DEC (Decay) – Controls the time it takes for the volume to fade from the maximum value to the sustain value.
  • SUS (Sustain) – Controls the level at which the envelope will sustain while the key is held.
  • REL (Release) – Controls the release (fade out) time of the envelope after the key is released.

On the right-hand side of the interface:

  • Pan – Controls the pan.
  • Tune – Controls tuning in the range of one octave.
  • Stereo – Adjust the stereo image of the selected sample, all the way from mono to a super wide stereo sound.
  • Glide – Adjust the amount of time it will take for one not to “glide” smoothly to the next.

Note: If you are using a trailer or a rhythmic type of patch, it means that you can change settings only for the selected sample. If you want to change these settings for the whole patch at once, you just have to hold the ALT key.

Additional Controls

  • Hybrid Control – The big center knob with the on/off switch controls the following effects dependent on patch:

Playable & Trailer Patches – Combination of Screamer, Saturation & Equalization.
Rhythm Patches – Crossfading between five dynamic layers.
Guitar Patches – Vibrato.

  • Whoosh/Long – Allows you to turn off the build-up or tail of a sample leaving only the impact.
  • Stop – Stop all voices from playing.

Effects

Every instrument has 10 effects available to it:

  • Reverberation – A selection of Convolution Reverbs
  • Delay
  • EQ – 3 band EQ
  • Saturation
  • Compression
  • Distortion
  • Lo-Fi
  • Filter – lo-pass, high-pass and band-pass filters
  • Screamer

The Motion Page

Keepforest have developed an engine that allows you to not only change rhythm pattern (1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/4T, 1/8T, 1/16T, 1/32T) in rhythmic standard type of patches but also change the whole structure of the samples.

One of the problems in modern scoring sample instruments is that transformation from one rhythm pattern to another can lead to wrong dynamics. This is especially clearly seen when we need to shift the weak and strong beats of the loop.

There are two types of rhythmic patches in Evolution:

Standard:

  • Normal attack/release values.
  • Pitch works with great quality on a high tune key.
  • No ability to change the whole structure of the samples to get the correct location of the weak and strong beats.
  • Random modulation doesn’t work in BM type of patches.
  • Step-sequencer doesn’t have the full functionality in BM type of patches.

Beat Machine:

  • Small attack/release values.
  • Pitch works with less quality on a high tune key.
  • Ability to change the whole structure of the samples to get the correct location of the weak and strong beats.
  • Random modulation works perfectly in this type of patches.
  • Step-sequencer has the full functionality in this type of patches.

Random Rhythms – Engine Feature

This allows you to randomly generate rhythmic patterns based on the selected sample. You can choose your own rhythm.

  • The Rhythm Knob – allows you to set the type of rhythm.
  • Steps Knob – allows you to set the number of random positions, the rhythmic pattern will be generated in that area.
  • Glitch Switch – is required to enable glitch randomly generated elements.

Sequencers

Evolution also features 4 independent sequencers: step sequencer, gate sequencer, pan control and filter control. Click on the sequencer you’d like to edit (SGPF) and use the on/off switches to activate/deactivate them.

  • Table – this consists of vertical bars to set the velocity for each step.
  • Left/Right buttons – move the whole sequence one step to the left/right.
  • Reset, Save and Load buttons all 4 sequencers with all settings can be saved and loaded as presets.
  • Steps Control – click and drag up and down on this to change the number of steps.
  • Gate Release – controls the release time of each step of the gate, and controls the time it takes to drop to the next quieter step.
  • Arpeggiator – controls which held note to play for each step of stepsequencer.
  • Panning – these sliders control the panning for each step of step-sequencer.

Modulations

The Mod section contains 2 modulations and controls for setting the modulation amounts for Volume and Pan modulations. The advantage of modulations over sequencers is the relative continuity of modulation transform functions.

Due to the fact that gate and pan sequencers may describe only highly discrete function we can achieve the smoothness of volume and pan transformations only through modulations. Plus, we are able to apply the modulations to taste by mixing it with the main signal

  • Amount (MIX) – from 0% to 100%.
  • Sync – sync to host’s tempo or not.
  • Rate – 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/4T, 1/8T, 1/16T, 1/32T, 1/4D, 1/8D, 1/16D and 1/32D or [0.01HZ, 29.3HZ]
  • SIN – sinus waveform
  • TRI – triangle waveform
  • RECT – rectangle waveform
  • SAW – saw waveform
  • RND – random waveform
