Hate on Massive?

I've tried different synths from time to time but I always go back to Native Instruments Massive. I'm aware of some slight negativity towards it because of how it may be easy to spot a sound made with it(or maybe I'm wrong), but I feel that it's very flexible and can always make the sound I'm looking for.

How do you feel about Massive? Hate it, love it? Wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole? Should I not use it for every sound?

Re: Hate on Massive?

I think the hate, if that's what it really is, has more to do with over-using presets than it has to do with the synth itself. There's nothing wrong with Massive..it's a really solid synth..use it as much as you want or like and don't worry too much about what others think. If a sound works for you..preset or not..then use it.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Hating on massive is pretty rediculous tbh. It has a huge (massive? Heh ) sound pallete. It can get most types of sounds you can imagine, and with a little effort, they will sit in your tracks very well. It does have a particular sound, but people was overstate the significance of that fact. Only thing hat has ever bothered me is running out of mod slots, but that could be a blessing to keep me from tweaking forever. I think people are just ignorantly thinking the only thing it's good for is dub basses.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Even though I like Serum better (it's like Massive II!), Massive is great for keeping your CPU in check, if you dig the sounds.

If massive had sampling abilities similar to Alchemy, I think it would be my go-to for nearly everything. Otherwise, I find my ears getting tired of anything I can conjure up with it.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Massive's just a tool. A good tool at that. Any tool that you can use to make your tracks sound better is a good tool. The only people who really care are the tools who think they're too cool to use it.

Anyways, as others have said, you shouldn't worry too much about what others are saying.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Some of it may stem from its prominent place in dubstep production. For some that isn't a desirable thing.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Massive is awesome. Easy to get into, lots of options, very powerful sound. People tend to hate on it because its a victim of its own success.

Also, moving thread to studio area as this is not hardware.

Re: Hate on Massive?

Ended up with the FL taint of it being very popular to run cracked copies of and then just exclusively use the same presets over and over again.

Nothing wrong with the plugin itself though, its still a very viable and flexible utility which can hold up against its modern competitors.
