NI Massive Presets – Bundle
Announced in alongside the Komplete 12 bundle , we were initially told that it would be released in February of , but this date then slipped to June, and detail has been scant. Over the next few months, this will cover all aspects of Massive X – design, oscillators, filters, preset design, etc but the starting point is a general overview. As you can see the Massive X interface is a big departure from the original Massive and, arguably, much clearer.
It is, however, being created by the same team. Massive X specs In terms of architecture, you get two wavetable oscillators that will offer wavetables at launch. These come from the creator of the original Massive and are designed to showcase what the new synth can do. Go deeper down the rabbit hole and you discover that these oscillators have 10 modes some of which have up to three sub-modes , each of which has its own character, and that the main oscillators can be modulated by two phase modulation oscillators.
Elsewhere, there are eight all-new multimode filters. These cover low-, high- and band-pass options, plus comb filtering. You also get dual filters: Massive X effects The three Insert FX slots, meanwhile, can be used to introduce new elements and polyphonic processing into the internal signal path. In fact, as well as effects, you can also drop in Insert Oscillators sine, pulse width, modulation-capable pulse, or saw , enabling you to work in a subtractive synthesis manner without even using the wavetable oscillators or to create intense DX7-style phase modulation environments.
There are also Unit FX; up to three of these can be applied simultaneously to the final patch. All-new delay, reverb, distortion and flanging algorithms are included, and NI thinks that they sound pretty special. Flexible audio routing is part of the Massive X package, too. You can click and drag connections between the different modules, enabling you to shuttle audio around as you wish, and to multiple destinations. You can even use one wavetable oscillator to phase modulate the other, or set up a wavetable to modulate itself via an aux input.
As in the first Massive, envelopes and LFOs sit side by side, but you can now use up to nine. The first of these is always an envelope, but the other eight can be configured as you like. New features include the Switcher LFO, which enables you to assign up to three modulation sources to the LFO to control morphing between shapes. You can also route the modulators into the audio bus. Next, we have the three Performers, which let you draw precise rhythmic modulation using specific shapes at specific time signatures.
The Remote Octave, meanwhile, promises live or sequenced triggering of up to 12 Performer snapshots. Finally, there are four trackers that allow incoming MIDI data to operate as assignable modulators. Rhythmic modulation can be achieved in the Performer and Remote Octave sections.

But its sequel remains mysterious. Now the company is revealing some of what we can expect. First, temper your expectations: The company tells CDM they are still on track for a June release date. What you do get to see, though, is some of what I got a preview of last fall. After a decade and a half, making a satisfying reboot of Massive is a tall order. Mike is still heavily involved in the new release, too, having crafted all wavetables himself, among other things.
