This series looks at using Massive to make many different sound types – it’s a very versatile synth! These videos explore some ideas and methods that are easy to implement with this powerhouse synth and hopefully sheds a little light on some things you can do differently to help improve your instruments and your sound design sessions within Massive.
Keys, Production, Drums and Synth Sequencing
Videos 1 and 2 of this mini series on designing Electonica in NI Massive focus on how to create a vibrant Electronica Key sound – A three Oscillator sound thats envelope has been shaped to near perfection. We also look at how to create a drum and synth sequence using Massive.
This sound is deep! You’ll learn:
How to use modulation when designing a sound
Using tools such as external filters and compressors to bring your sound to life
Which wavetables to use when designing these kinds of sounds
Use Massive to make snares, hats and kicks
Programming chords in one instance of Massive (no keybaord needed!)
Arp’s, Drums and and beat sequences
In videos 3 and 4 we’re looking at using the drum sounds you made earlier and creating a beat! You’ll also be adding an arp and a bass sequence.
Which modulators to use to create your own beats
Using Massive’s effects to bring your beat to life
Using multiple modulators in one instance of Massive for complex patterns
