Tutorial: Native Instruments Massive Techniques from Breakitdown


This is my first post on this forum, so hi!
I write a blog about sound design for Native Instruments Massive.

Here is a link to my latest tutorial, Using Stepper creatively with Massive

My previous tutorials are here:

Using Envelopes to manipulate sound

Dub Techno synth stab with Native Instruments Massive

I hope these are of use to someone!

Hey guys,

The latest tutorial for Native Instruments Massive is the first guest post from Rob Janssen (hopefully the first of many!).

In this article Rob talks about techniques to get rid of some of the sterility in Massive's sound for a more analogue emulation!

I hope this tutorial is of use!

Good threads so I'd have been happy keeping them separate but it's nice and neat now. Keep up the good info! Grin

There's a new tutorial up for Massive on - this time round for creating 'Dutch" house leads. Whilst the genre might not be your thing , the technique itself is an interesting one for learning some of Massive's routing capabilities.
