Native Instruments Massive X Software Synthesizer

The original Massive semi-modular wavetable soft synth helped define the sound of modern EDM. Build hard-hitting leads and more with NI's next-gen Massive X!

Massive X is the next-generation flagship synthesizer from Native Instruments. For years, Massive has been one of Native Instruments' biggest brands, and one of the most successful synthesizers of all time. The original MASSIVE, having helped define the sound of modern genres such as dubstep and EDM, became synonymous with an exciting, forward-thinking approach to synthesis that unapologetically embraced its digital DNA.

Now, Native Instruments has created its successor -- Massive X. Designed and built from scratch, Massive X builds on its heritage to rethink and redefine the possibilities of a virtual synth. Native Instruments is confident that it will help define the next 10 years of sound, as its predecessor did with the last 10 years.

Create with a new level of dynamic, shifting sound, with truly flexible routing and extensive modulation. Based on the DNA of MASSIVE, built for a new decade and designed to evolve with immaculate sound and complete sonic freedom for advanced sound design.

Rethought, rewired, and reincarnated -- MASSIVE X is the successor to an iconic synthesizer that helped spawn entire genres. Get everything you need to create any sound imaginable. Quickly patch complex routings to bring your ideas to life no matter how far-out they might seem -- and take things further than you thought you could with expressive, playable modulation. Think it up, dial it in, and define what the future sounds like. MASSIVE X will grow, adapt, and read more evolve with regular free updates -- both inspired by, and to inspire, the cultures it helps to create.

The instrument is designed around newly-built DSP block modules, meaning the sound is truly state of the art, and that Native Instruments can add new modules and features on a regular basis. Massive X will have preset and audio expansions added frequently -- created by NI sound designers as well as external partners.

The top half is where most of the sound generation and shaping takes place, with dual wavetable oscillators, a dual noise module, the filter module, Insert FX, and the Stereo FX. In the lower half you'll find voicing and routing, as well as MASSIVE X's modulation sources -- Performers, envelopes and LFOs, Trackers, and the Voice Randomization.

MASSIVE X comes loaded with presets -- from sequenced soundscapes, to leads, pads, and the big bass growlers you'd expect. Use them as they are, to kick off your own patches, or to experiment and learn more about how the synth works. Native Instruments will keep adding more with regular free library updates.

Worthy of special mention is the band of Gorilla oscillator sub-modes -- King, Kang, and Kong. Feed them wavetables and they'll deliver some of the fattest, and most aggressive tones you've ever heard.

Instantly control the parts of MASSIVE X you need to with 16 assignable macro controls. These also enable you to control the synth's parameters easily in your DAW. Assign pitch bend, modwheel, and aftertouch to modulate any parameter for extra playability.
