Tutorials for Native Instruments Massive

Post by jeskola01 » Tue Aug 17, 2010 6:26 am

Hey,

I thought it probably best to stick all these in one post rather than make a new thread each time i add one - so from now on i'll be adding the tutorials to this thread alone. If the Mods could lock or delete all the other ones - that would be sweet :)

Here are the tutorials (including new ones) thus far:

Hey

There's a new tutorial up for Massive on massivesynth.com - 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.

Just spotted this video on You Tube and linked it on my blog.

Really nice video tutorial on making an 808 with Massive.
Great for kicks or basses i guess!

Nice work 8)

Recently added Massive to my small arsenal of synths, only really getting into it this weekend and I'm getting a lot out of your blog, keep it up :)

I love you, jeskola01

I've been wanting to get in to massive but lack of tutorials kind of deterred me (as well as Omnisphere) and this, this is perfect. What a great line-up of tutorials.

Thanks, dood.

Hey guys,

No tutorial this week, but thought these might be of use!

Although there are no keyboard shortcuts for Massive, there are some modifier keys...

The "hidden modulators" in Massive – the internal envelopes.

New tutorial up on the blog, this week covering hi hat creation with the noise OSC and the performance modulator.
Whilst the hat's sound is quite basic, with a bit of work you could get some very nice sounds and patterns out it.

http://www.massivesynth.com/tutorials/c ... s-massive/

Working on a load of new ones, sorry - been a bit slow theses past couple of weeks with a new job and been on holiday - writing a pile of new ones this week :)

Also added a new tutorial for members on using the band reject filter for sweeps.

The subscribers tutorials now include:
  • Boards of Canada "Phasing chords" technique with stepper modulator
    Routing within Massive
    Insert effects in Massive
    The Bypass function in Massive
    The Band Reject filter for sweeps
More coming soon

Drop in your email on the blog to get these (btw they are a chain of autoresponders, so you will get them as email in order every few days).
More coming soon,

Hey

Next tutorial on my blog www.massivesynth.com is from Christian Meyer.

His video tutorial cover setting up a bass sound with Macro controls to control key elements.
Although the macros control set up is quite simple in Massive, setting up the controls across multiple elements can really make a difference to patch control - especially in a live environment or for tweaking out live whilst jamming in the studio.

You can find the tutorial here:

Hope you find it useful :)

Hey guys,

Another post up on http://www.massivesynth.com, this time looking into the macro control panel - specifically the KTR, VEL, TrR, AT icons and how you might use them.

http://www.massivesynth.com/tutorials/m ... r-vel-trr/

Also here is a couple of sounds to mess around with. Might not be to everyone's taste - but I'm sure you will get something from them!
