Native Instruments Massive

Native Instruments Massive
Initially, when I had purchased, apparently, it seemed, as trite synth.
But I am trompé.Beaucoup people say it's a monster sound.
I totally agree with them, be it a synth, ok! but the point to succeed in creating identical sounds alarm, helicopters, planes ....... Here! I am amazed.

The installation is done well.
It is easy to configuerer
No conflict for me
The manual is clear

Once we to understand the operation of the synth, it can do wonders.
It can also be used in a sequencer vst plugins.


I use it for 6 months and I am very happy.

Yes! I tried other instruments, but not as well as massive

What I like most is that we can create sounds at infinity.
In addition there are updated from time to time on the manufacturer's site, where they add sound.

I'd buy the 200 euro.
For a synth, which is also used in vst plugins, it's really cheap.

Native Instruments Massive
Installation is very simple, offline activation relatively simple if you have an internet connection nearby.

The manual is clear and well ordered.


I use a Toshiba Satellite laptop and everything works great.
Mass is stable and functional now. Little extra, you can choose between several sound quality settings that affect the CPU. This is very significant when working with a number of VST.


I use it for almost 6 months.
Very easy to use and exploit (or more intuitive qu'Absynth FM8) is a real pleasure to work with Massive.

Question sound is excellent but will not suit everyone. The sound is very typical "digital", ideal for modern sounds, cold or aggressive but if you want to rework sound more analog. In comparison, Massive approximates sounds of the Virus TI but with one side slightly less analogue than the latter.

The filters are very good qualities, the effects of good quality are limited to two effects in series (which is a bit light).

In conclusion, Massive is a great VST synth for the modern sound that has virtually nothing from the machine hardware, it lacks a good arpeggiator for it a little gas plant to do with the designer step but otherwise it's perfect.

The price / quality ratio is interesting (even through the Komplete Synth) and saw the potential is far from expensive.

No problem, if that 's that I have had to switch to komplete5 to have it, if not with 4 days' time was out.
this makes it twice m 'arrive and force their marketing to the nuts I' have had enough.

Komplete4 more kore 1400 Euro upgrade the 5 200 euros more, upgrade to kore 2, 99 euros (the grace period has missed a week!).

And results of races: Komplete5 kore2 more: 900 euros, nine

Sometimes it leaves me speechless all this.


It consumes far. To adjust the level of quality. Perfectly stable.


The possibilities are great indeed, when he pulls into the nose. Sounds incredible and totally new to those who can make automation more than two parameters.

Sequences rework has a ready-made sauce, much better than some sample library.

So sometimes, yes, the filters sound in toc, but in a mix with the next evolution of automation, it s' perceive more.
And nothing to prevent it sticking to the filter type Ohmicide buttocks.
Sounds big and fat when we forget its a priori. Moi j 'draws serious stuff.

Native Instruments Massive


Consumes a max cpu sometimes not much


And this is yet another plug in that m 'will have fun .... 30 minutes. Nothing more innovative than a rehash. Heat issue but I still prefer a true analogue. Especially as the price, we can find!
To say that the sound is a huge exaggeration. But everything is relative

Native Instruments Massive
Quick Installation
Compatibility OK


Resource intensive. 25% cpu on a 2GB proc, 2gb ram


The sound is huge, comparable Absynth, no problem. It sounds of thunder in Absynth and FM7 range, can be rounder, beefier, more resonance in the cheap, but very specific to the drum or hip hop is a huge bomb.

- The installation is done it without problems?

Installed after download following the activation of Kore & Komplete 4, auncun problem, rapid activation and can not be easier thanks to NI service center.

- Have you experienced any incompatibilities?


- The general configuration is easy?

It takes a few hours to understand the philosophy of the synth but the logic of NI soon take its meaning ...

- The manual is clear and sufficient?

Manual in PDF, not yet had time (or need) to immerse myself.


- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)

P IV 2.6 GHZ, 2 GB Ram, 2 discs 80 and 250 GB, running ProTools LE 7.3 with digi 002 rack

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?

RAS currently

- What performance? (If quantifiable)

It runs well but eats a lot of ca CPU (Interface, treatments ...)

- This software + hardware is stable?

No problem for the moment!


My opinion:

This synth is a very nice shot of NI, in addition to conventional oscilloscope / filters / effects is especially the assignment of lfo, step and perform that are worth ...

You can assign any nimporte varying any parameter so childish (2 clicks), choose which field width it will act ...

One can delve into the bowels of the sound, select the exact location where an insert or an effect will act, the step editor / performer / lfo is also a model of its kind ...

Question her, it's big, heavy, fat, whatever you want, one thing is sure: it sounds!

After a little time getting started you soon realize the potential of this synth that will surely become a reference very soon!

You can really see what the sound varies, what effect is good, or place to make the best, fantastic!!

A few more hours of training and I think I can make it a centerpiece of my setup!

- How long have you use it?

2 weeks

- What is so special that you like most and least?

The +: Big big sound, clean interface, three oscilloscope, step, perform and fully configurable LFO, customizable and assignable to infinity ...

The -: power-hungry machine

Received free with this package kore / KOMPLETE 4, a treat!
