Native Instruments has released Massive X – the long-awaited follow up to their classic soft synth.
It has been more than a decade since the release of the revolutionary Massive soft synth. The team who had developed the original has now completed an expanded update.
Reports say that Massive X was developed right from scratch, however it still builds on the heritage of its predecessor.
Features of Massive X
The new synth has a redesigned GUI. Similar to the original though, it focusses heavily on modulation. It offers two wavetable oscillators with 170 wavetables.
Massive X’s sound source section also has ten oscillator modes, a pair of phase modulation oscillators as well as a further auxiliary modulation input, giving significant scope for sound designers.
The sound design process is further streamlined with the new routing system for modulation and audio, which allows you to connect any output to any input similar to that of modular synthesisers.
New users will also have access to a large preset library which is made available to help you get results out of the complex synth rather quickly.
Needless to say, there’s quite a bit to this new release. Perhaps you should watch the video to visually see what we’re talking about and try out the demo for yourself here.
You can purchase Massive X from the Native Instruments website for $199. Existing Massive users can upgrade for $149. Massive X will also be sold in Native’s Komplete series of software bundles.
