Massive Macros Explained Please?

Post by bbart318 » Sat Jul 02, 2011 2:53 am

I am having some trouble understanding how the macros function in massive. After trying to find some tutorials online to explain how they work, I've had no luck. I don't quite understand why you would create your own knob with a desired parameter (you specify length) on another knob already equipped with a function.

Thanks for your help!

So you can map a midi knob to the macro knob in Massive and the whole range of motion would only change the dedicated parameter a smaller amount.

Also, more than one parameter can be attached to one macro, so twisting one knob makes the sound change in various ways to make automation/live tweaking better and easier.

Yes by twisting the knob you can make the sound better.
