Evolutif is an open source audio engine, developed out of a desire to see a simpler, non-proprietary solution to the platform-specific audio APIs available today. Evolutif is open source software, and has many features that make it an attractive solution for audio application developers. It is still in its early development stages, but a working copy is availabe from the download section, with support for basic operations, such as file loading/saving, audio playback, audio mixing, and effects processing (with a limited set of built-in effects at the moment). If you are interested in helping out with this project, please contact us.

Evolutif uses PortAudio, a portable cross-platform Audio API.


  • File loading/saving capabilities. Support for most popular audio file formats.
  • Unlimited signal mixing and chaining capabilities.
  • Many built-in audio effects processors, including a plug-in schema allowing new effects to be added and loaded dynamically.
  • Designed for compatability with VST plug-in architecture
  • Built-in synthesizers and generators. (Not implemented yet)

Why should you use evolutif?

  • Since evolutif is open source software, you can add your own features and extend it to suit your needs.
  • Evolutif is simple to use and can dramatically decrease project development time.
  • Cross-platform compatibility (see below)
