First Look: Massive X Feature Overview

After its announcement almost a year ago, Massive X is finally here. Prior to its release, we were given a copy to test out and we absolutely love what the new powerhouse softsynth has to offer. Now, we are excited to share with you exactly what we found so impressive about the successor to one of Native Instruments’ most widely recognised plugins.

The new synth was built by the same team who built the original Massive over a decade ago and arrives as a free download via Native Access for owners of Komplete 12. If you’d like to get your hands on Massive X and explore its fantastic features for free, we’re currently giving away Komplete 12 and either Ableton or Logic (£1,000/$1,350 worth of software) to any aspiring producer who signs up to any of our Online Diploma or higher education courses. The next online term starts on 8th July so be sure to take advantage of this deal by heading here!

Now, without further ado jump into the Massive X overview and oscillator tutorial from our Module Leader for Sound Design, Chris Carter.

Massive X certainly has some stand out features. It now houses two wavetable oscillators with 170 wavetables to choose from, the option to use up to three additional syncable oscillators and plenty of modulation modes. Although Massive X includes many of the features of the original Massive, such as the drag and drop modulations, it’s technically not an update but a new synth entirely built from the ground up with a new engine. A stand out feature of the new synth is the completely rethought routing engine, which allows users to route any input to output as well as route audio to and from multiple components.

Itching to get your hands on this new piece of studio tech? Why not enrol on a Point Blank Online course? As previously stated, you’ll receive Komplete 12 (which comes with Massive X) and either Ableton or Logic completely free. There are plenty of courses within this deal to choose from including our popular Music Production Diploma, BA (Hons) Music Production and Sound Engineering programme, DipHE Music Production & Sound Engineering course and more.
