what i do if i need quick tune my sounds, i add standart kontakt piano, route it to the same midi channel play the note and tune my samples by ear, to match the piano pitch.
btw...celemony melodyne can help you a lot in this situation, try the demo.
My 2 cents as Kontakt library deveper:
As far as I can see from Evolve demos and videos, seems there's isn't much of "script magic" there. Seems to be a very basic script to control filter, EG parameters and FX triggering. I can guess all samples has been pre-processed and mapped to Kontakt for further mangling using the provided interface.
About source ...
Hey Bryce, very cool. thanks for sharing.
I've only had a few minutes to play with it and it's great.
Some feedback on how it could be improved:
1) more source sample material for more varied textures of wings. multiple .nki files
I enjoyed listening to the raw source sample - nature recording. I threw in a couple of my own samples real quick, set a ...
From what I've tried with Kontakt files:

The format is proprietary and maybe obfuscated.
You can always contact Native Instruments for more details.

Best guess - 2.5GB RAM... which is barely enough to run the OS these days, let alone a DAW with a massive sample playback engine on top.
When manufacturers say 'minimum spec', that's really what they mean... absolute minimum to get it to work at all.
Although this is an answer that depends on another software to solve this problem, here's the approach I took for the time being.
Since my host program that I'm using is Ableton live, I grouped the Kontakt player so that it plays on channel #1 of the combined instrument.
Then, I recorded (in Session view) the output of the highest note in the Kontakt ...
The best way to start is to read the basics on Nils Liberg site (http://nilsliberg.se/ksp/scripts/tutorial/) and follow VI-Control Kontakt Scripting section of their forum (http://www.vi-control.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=65)
Another good beginners resource is:
Or from NI themselves:
I'll stop at this point, but a bit of a basic ...
to your question, some useful sampler based fx libraries may include:
footsteps (obvious choice)
impact sweeteners, debris
gun shots and sweetening layers, gun handling
gadgetry and small servo patches
data/text on screen / typing / hi tech graphic fx
a nice instrument with effects and layers to easily create basic swooshes, transitions with the ...
