Native Instruments Massive X teasers revealed
We recently got some insight into some new features in the upcoming Native Instruments Massive X, now for some teasers…
We recently covered the announcement of the full feature-set for the new Massive X, and they do look exciting to say the least. The announcement came in the form of a blog post by Native Instruments themselves outlining a lot of key elements in the upcoming release. Well, Native Instruments have just posted another blog entry, this time with audio and video demos of some more basic functionality in the upcoming Native Instruments Massive X plugin.
They’ve released two videos to outline the sonic variety in their redesigned wavetable oscillators, the videos outline what the plugin’s ART (Artificial Resonance Technology) mode and Standard Mode sound like with some basic modulation. The teaser videos are pretty basic, however keep in mind this is only scratching the surface compared to some of the outlined features in the first blog post. So far, we know that the Wavetable oscillator in the new Native Instruments Massive X has 10 unique modes (and a total of 256 unique wavetables) – hopefully we will see some more teasers, however you can imagine the possibilities already.
Massive X’s new “Saturn” controls…
The Wavetable oscillators in the upcoming Massive X each have three “Saturn” controls, the first control always adjusts wavetable positions regardless of the oscillator mode, however the other two have unique modes depending on which mode you’re in.
Most of the oscillator modes are familiar to synth enthusiast, or at least anyone who has used the original Massive or xFer’s Serum. We have Bend mode, Mirror mode, Hard Sync mode, Wrap mode and Formant mode. Then come the more experimental modes – Jitter, Random and Gorilla mode. In case you’re wondering Gorilla-mode is a collection of simple waveforms with a “vulgar and aggressive” character.
