Native Instruments Massive brings the fattest sound that can be found today in the computer-based recording studio. The synth is suitable for any kind of electronic Mucke - whether fat basses for RnB and hip hop, wide hooks for technoid work of all kinds, or schwurbelige wobbles for DubStep Drum and Base actually plays for the Masterpiece from Berlin not matter.

As a standalone controlling NI Massive over a MIDI keyboard, and can affect the sound live numerous controller via a control surface, such as the Novation Remote or the in-house NI controllers. Who wants to go more toward production, looks best in the overview of free downloads for music make and integrates the massive tone generator in a VST studio. So you have to einklimpern melodies and baselines not live, but arranges them in a song and letting it play automatically. In addition, it also binds a controller, as in the stand-alone, but also benefits from the extensive automation capabilities of a VST hosts and garnished the whole thing to boot with delicious external VST effects.

Manual and automatic sound distortion
can get really dizzy in the modulation capabilities. As a modulation source, four envelopes and three optional LFO, Stepper or performer ready. Which one is simply to their own taste, draws the corresponding icon to the desired modulation targets, regulate strength and from it. On request, even modulates a modulated modulation another, fans of modern electronic music will have their delight in the possibilities.
In addition to the automated Klangverbiegung one also has eight knobs - the Macro Controls - available with several controls simultaneously. Thus, a controller controls a number of other controllers at a time, thus making for example, the filter deeper, during resonance and distortion go high, the reverb but also less. In the final presets can the understand quite well, here affect the eight quick controls usually the main modulation parameters. By the way: Just about all knobs, faders and switches in NI Msssive are equipped with a MIDI learn function and can be remotely controlled in this way by external devices or via host automation.
