Wave Alchemy Mutate for Kontakt


wave alchemy mutate for kontakt beat mode

Are you interested in a new next generation virtual hybrid synthesizer for Kontakt 5?

Then you will want to check out Mutate from Wave Alchemy

Mutate is powered by a 3.7GB core library of unique raw waveforms and pre-designed preset multi-samples, synthesized from the ground up, and recorded directly from a huge hybrid analogue / digital Eurorack modular synth system. In essence this means that as a producer, sound designer or programmer you have access to a truly diverse tapestry of creative sounds and building blocks, before you have even touched Mutate’s creative on-board parameters!

mutate raw waveforms instrument

There are 2 instruments – “raw wavesforms” and “designed presets”.

The ‘Raw Waveforms’ instrument is powered by 2730 multi-samples spread across 46 waveform patches. Up to four oscillators (plus noise oscillator) can be mixed, panned and tuned to create unique layered, synthesized sounds.


Twist, mangle and transform unique multi-sampled waveforms to create powerful abstract Dubstep bass, twisted Techno sequences, morphing growls, Mainroom EDM bass / leads, cone-melting subs, lush chords, warm analogue bass and everything in-between…

Combine complex evolving tones and ‘mutate’ them into oblivion with powerful parameter lock sequencers and extensive on-board processing / FX.

mutate designed presets

The ‘Designed Preset’ Instrument is powered by 6305 perfectly looped multi-samples, spread across 142 expressive, evolving patches which are ready to use straight out of the box; with filter settings, modulation, and envelope settings recorded straight from the modular Eurorack system.

Mutate was driven by the desire to create a truly unique ‘Bass Machine’ synth capable of twisting waveforms ‘inside-out’ using extensive modulation and sequencer parameter lock techniques.

From the start it was our mission to push Kontakt’s scripting capabilities to the limit, to deliver a synth with an experimental edge, capable of devastating, evolving sounds for the bass heads.

As the project progressed, it became obvious that although initially designed for bass sounds, Mutate is capable of a massive range of different tones and colours, which can be twisted and warped into oblivion to create fresh evolving sounds / sequences which have never been heard before…

Mutate is powered by an array of raw waveforms and designed preset multi-samples, recorded directly from a huge hybrid analogue / digital Eurorack modular system, which can be further shaped and ‘mutated’ using waveform layering, filters, envelopes, extensive modulation, 32-step parameter locks and FX processing.

Oh it has sequencing options.

mutate seq page

At the heart of Mutate you will find a 32-step, 16 track, variable rate ‘parameter lock’ sequencer, allowing you to automate; note pitch, volume, note length, attack, filter cut-off, filter resonance, filter LFO depth, Filter LFO rate, stereo spread, distortion levels, reverb send and delay send individually, per step! When used with the instruments ‘shuffle’ function, anything from subtle sample and hold type effects to completely insane, morphing sequences can be created. This is where things get really interesting!
