 Evolver :: SOLANA.BZ :: Bright Solutions for Smart Business   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-29)
Evolver uses innovative GA technology to create environments where possible solutions continuously crossbreed, mutate, and compete with one another, until they "evolve" into the best solution.
Evolver can find optimal solutions to any function that results in a number, whether calculated in a single cell, a full sheet of equations, or the result of some large, complex macro.
Evolver’s GA doesn’t need to know the specific details of your problem, or even whether it is solving linear, nonlinear, stochastic (random), combinatorial, noisy, or probabilistic functions.

 Triply Periodic Minimal Surfaces   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-29)
These images were made with the Surface Evolver.
The surfaces are generally made by defining and evolving the fundamental region of the surface, which is usually very simple due to the high symmetry, and then displaying many copies of it, suitably transformed.
Surfaces with "adj" in the file name were made by evolving the adjoint surface.

 Dave Smith Evolver
Thus, the Evolver is Dave's first solo project in years, born out of a desire to build a piece of real hardware again — a concept Dave neatly describes as "the ultimate dongle".
Indeed, the Evolver uses the same matrix-style interface, where you select a line of parameters to edit on the matrix with the buttons at the side, and then adjust individual parameters with the knobs at the top.
In my case, paying Dave Smith for the Evolver (which I did via credit card, and which translated to about £330) was the easiest part of the transaction; I was then alerted by UPS when it arrived at UK customs, and informed that duty was payable.

 Surface Evolver Documentation - Constraints
The usual mode of operation of the Surface Evolver is to minimize energy subject to constraints.
A level-set constraint is a restriction of vertices to lie on the zero level-set of a function.
Such curves or surfaces are called "boundaries" in Evolver terminology, since they are usually used as boundary curves of surfaces, for example a soap film on a wire loop could have the wire implemented as a boundary.

The Surface Evolver software is a tool for modelling the liquid surfaces shaped by surface energies and other forces, and subject to various constraints.
The Surface Evolver evolves this surface in a numerical iterative manner until a surface with a minimal energy is established.
Once Evolver establishes the minimal energy for the initial facets, they are halved, in a procedure termed 'refining', doubling their number.

The Evolver combines digital and analog oscillators, digital and analog filters, an analog-style sequencer, external-audio-processing capabilities, and a matrix-style user interface in a tabletop synthesizer and effects box that's capable of producing sounds like no other.
The Evolver is housed in an unassuming fl steel box with a slightly sloped top covered by a blue vinyl control panel.
The Evolver's two analog oscillators are pretty standard, offering a choice of sawtooth, pulse, and triangle waveforms as well as a combination of sawtooth and triangle.

 Dave Smith Instruments Evolver   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-29)
The Evolver is a very interesting hybrid, large parts of the signal path are analog but digital circuitry is used where it's sensible.
The Evolver has helped me, more than any other synthesizer that I have owned or had access to, illustrate to the rest of the members of my band that tonal and non-tonal sounds can not only co-exist, but sound wonderful together (when necessary and/or desirable).
The evolver's matrix-style UI (described by a previous reviewer), is certainly not as nice as a fully knobbed-out UI, but it's very well thought out, and in practice I don't find it hard to use.

There are a lot of demos of the Evolver on the web showcasing the gutsy harsh sounds of this beast so I decided to post demos of some of my own patches as examples of the "softer" more "vintage" side of the Evolver's timbre.
The Evolver can make many ultra-bright and buzzy sounds due to its extensive feedback and distortion stages but sometimes people miss the subtler side of the beast.

It took me a while to get all of my thoughts down of this album, but I feel that I have a clear vision of what it was trying to accomplish, and how it succeeded immensely.
Evolver was released a decade after the bands first major release “Music” that has since reached “Gold Status” according to the RIAA for selling over 500,000 copies.
Looking back on Evolver, I can confidentially say that it has to be their best work in years.

 JS Online: CD Spotlight: 311 's 'Evolver'
So it's a little disconcerting that the lead track on 311's new album, "Evolver" (Volcano), apes the electronic squiggle, shout and crunch of the multiplatinum Linkin Park.
"Evolver" does manage to hold on to some of the traits that distinguished its predecessor, 2001's "From Chaos," which is among 311's finest albums.
But everything on "Evolver" is expertly performed by this team of talented players and it's seldom less than adequate.

Godhead's sound on Evolver, as compared to their other albums, such as 2000 Years Of Human Error shows that they have become much more mature (musically speaking) in terms of ability and sound.
His talents are so much more evident on Evolver than any other of Godhead's projects.
Compared to Godheads other albums (2000 Years Of Human Error, Powertool Stigmata, and Nothingness), which are all amazing, Evolver deffinately comes out on top.

 IGN: Evolver Review
And while their 12th album, Evolver, is built on the hybrid rock and rap-rock origins of the band, it strikes the listener as both surprisingly mellow and somewhat of an evolutionary departure from some of the their prior work, hence the irony tucked within the name of the album.
It's the shortest 311 studio album to date (11 tracks) and the slow-but-solid tracks on the album take away from the intensity and raw power that 311 albums are often built upon.
If you don't like 311 and never have, Evolver won't change your mind on the band; 311's signature sound is still very much present.

I've always liked feedback in synths, so there is extensive use of tunable feedback in Evolver, interconnecting the digital feedback loops with the analog electronics.
However, when Evolver goes ape, the analog circuitry actually keeps the signal in line just enough that the result is wild sounds, not pain.
But, a day before the NAMM show in mid-January, I stopped development long enough to make a few sounds for the show, and was blown away by the organic nature of the synth.

Dave Smith Instruments has released the Poly Evolver, a 4- voice synthesizer based on the Evolver that features analog oscillators, filters, and VCAs.
According to the manufacturer, each voice is essentially a complete Evolver, with four oscillators per voice (two analog and two digital), a stereo signal path, and separate analog lowpass filters for each channel.
Multiple Poly Evolvers can be daisy-chained to get more polyphony, and audio chaining capabilities are built in.
