Description : The original Massive, which helped define the sound of modern genres such as dubstep and EDM, has become synonymous with an exciting, forward-thinking approach to synthesis that has inexcusably embraced its digital DNA. Renowned for its intuitive interface and sonic potential – from huge basslines and treble to the evolution of ambient textures – it has quickly become an integral part of many production tools.
Massive X is Native Instruments’ new flagship synthesizer built by the same team as its predecessor. Based on state-of-the-art architecture, it provides pristine sound and tremendous creative flexibility for artists and sound engineers alike, allowing them to create, modulate and experiment with sound from a vast array of sources in any way they want.
What’s new :
MASSIVE X is only available as AAX, AU, VST Plug-ins in this version. MASSIVE X requires an AVX compatible CPU to install and run. The MASSIVE X Factory Library is a separate installation, be sure to install via NATIVE ACCESS.
