Welcome to a new series on Sonic Academy were we take an in-depth look at some of the most popular soft synths and plugins in the studio environment today. In this first ‘How To Use’ We lift the lid on Native Instruments ‘Massive’.


Over 17 enormous video's, Massive expert, and ’Echo Sound works’ head, Shane, takes you step by step through every facet of this complex and sometimes misunderstood studio workhorse.


From explaining Massive’s wavetables to delving deep into the LFO, Performer and Stepper tabs. We also create some stunning real world examples of Dubstep wobbles, Supersaws and deep subby baselines. So if you want to really understand Massive and take your sound design skills to the next level, then this is the course for you. Enjoy!

Good Tutorial but the audio is bad in that way that the music is much louder than the voice. This is a bit of annoying. Anyway i learned good new things to use.
