Dave Smith Instruments Evolver Analog / Digital
Synthesizer is one HUGE little desktop synth!
Capable of some Monster Bass, PHAT vintage sounds, powerful sequences & audio in effects!!! Super cool!!!!
All from a monophonic synth that fits in your backpack!

This video is a demonstration of it's softer side, Pads, Strings, S+H, Modulation, most videos of the EVOLVER just show off its harsh, noisy side. This video shows an atmospheric side that does not get too much attention.
I love this unit like I did my POLY EVOLVER, I just wish it had the 4 voices the POLY EVOLVER did! LOL!
This unit is still sought after & used by many producers & musicians all over the world. Go figure, it is from DSI!!!
But I have one major GRIPE, it STEPS SO HARD when you are creating filter sweeps.... Frequency, Envelope... OMG!!
You can hear it when I twist the knobs, quite obvious!!
Kinda like some old Yamaha synths I used to own...
The Evolver is not the best for LIVE usage unless you are not planning on tweaking the sounds onstage...
The POLY EVOLVER did NOT do that! It was very smooth when you tweak sounds!!! Let me know how you guys use the Evolver desktop & if you feel the same about the STEPPING (Zipper) when you tweak the knobs....

  1. Its the cheap step knobs that makes the filter step like that. If you modulate the filter through midi you won´t get that. Alt. get the upgrade knob kit.
