What's EVE ?
stands for Electronic
which suggests the design philosophy behind the instrument. EVE was
made to recreate in the virtual world of softsynths the exciting and
immediate experience of the early age of electronics in pop, rock and
jazz music from the 1960’s and 1970’s.
During this creative
period in music history, many musicians started to employ the
innovative sounds of the ‘electric keyboards’ which were newly
available for use on stage and in the studio: Rhodes electric pianos,
Hammond and Vox organs, Hohner clavinets, strings machines such as the
Arp Solina string ensemble, Moog synthesizers, and all those that are
now considered ‘classics’.
It was not only keyboards that were a
part of this revolution in popular music: the use of effects and
recording techniques for layering, blending and manipulating sounds
transformed the way music was produced and conceptualized. Tape based
delay lines, rotating speaker cabinets, guitar distortion pedals, wah
wah, phasing, flanging and other effects became an integral part of the
process of sound design.
takes these vintage sounds and this early approach to ‘electronic’
music production as a starting point, bringing this general philosophy
and sound into the modern virtual environment with an intuitive and
powerful interface. At the core of the EVE approach to
sound design is
the basic structure of 3 sample-playing layers, 2 multi-effect racks,
and a selected library of multisampled ‘electric keyboards’.
enables the blending of several waveforms and instruments into a
vintage wall of sound, or alternatively, the use of the 3 layers
multi-timbrally as a vintage workstation. These layers can then be
further processed through EVE’s
powerful multi-effect racks.
features a well designed system of parameters for tweaking instruments
and effects towards musical results, with all parameters accessible on
a single page for easy and intuitive sound design.
Using EVE 2
is just like having the vintage boxes at your fingertips.

What's EVE 2?
2 adds several enhancements and new synthesis features to
yet powerful EVE
design. All the original functionality and ease of use
is still there, with the following changes and additions –
original LP resonant filter per layer in EVE has been
replaced by a
multimode filter (LP, HP, BP, BR) with control over cut, resonance and
envelope modulation, as well as a special ‘fractal’ modulation
parameter. This expanded filter design provides further tools for
balanced layering of sounds, and deep pads.
• FM/AM modulation
capabilities per layer have been added via the ~FM switch matrix. FM
and AM can be used to add interesting harmonic
distortions to the
original instruments, or to manipulate new sounds from the existing
• The vintage multi-effect racks have been updated, with
an expanded ECHO rack, and a new overdrive effect in the
rack, as well as various enhancements to other effects.
routing options between the layers and the effects allow the MODULATOR
rack to function in both ‘send’ and ‘insert’ modes.
• EVE 2 now
supports the loading of WusikSND SoundSets, opening up a whole range of
extra sample content that can be loaded into the EVE engine. Due to
synth design differences, EVE
2 does not load Wusik presets (FXP, FXB,
BNK or WusikPRST files). For EVE
2 to read WusikSND SoundSets, they
must be installed into the ‘EVE Data’ directory in any subfolder.
• The EVE 2
default sound library features new SoundSets and presets in addition to
those that shipped with EVE.
