This paper explores the application of evolutionary techniques to the design of novel sounds and their characteristics during performance. It is based on the "selective breeding" paradigm and as such dispensing with the need for detailed knowledge of the Sound Synthesis Techniques involved, in order to design sounds that are novel and of musical interest. This approach has been used successfully on several SSTs therefore validating it as an Adaptive Sound Meta-synthesis Technique. Additionally, mappings between the control and the parametric space are evolved as part of the sound setup. These mappings are used during performance.
