This in-depth tutorial shares some great advice on how to design better shifting drone synths in NI Massive!
With so much attention on bass music and EDM genres, it is easy to forget just how flexible Massive really is. This lesson shares how to make some very deep NI Massive drones!
In this slightly different NI Massive tutorial I will walk you through the steps of creating a simple cinematic soundscape, ideal for evoking feelings of darkness, mystery and suspense.
One of the things i like about synthesis is it’s not just all about making music. Creating soundscapes and sound effects can be just as rewarding as writing and producing music – especially when it comes to learning your synths!
Some days I’ll quite happily just load up a couple of synths and just make noise, even without knowing what i will end up with. Those sessions usually leave me with several sounds or ideas i can use next time I’m making some music. It also means i start to grow a collection of my own sounds so I’m not just diving straight into presets that everyone else has.
Today we shall make this simple sound – to me it sounds like a Sci Fi drone.
