Creating Atmospheres using the Polysaw oscillators in NI Massive

Massive is not only great for basses but because of it’s method of mapping different LFO’s and Envelopes to different parameters, it opens the door for TONS of techniques to create atmospheres and beds simply and easily.

In this particular video we will cover using only one oscillator to create an atmosphere.  First, you will select Polysaw I (1) from the oscillator menu on OSC1, then set the Wt-Position all the way to the left for Osc1 as well.  Next you will select “Lowpass 4″ from the contextual menu under Filter 1.  Set your Resonance down ALL the way, and the cut off to about 3 o’clock (or 3/4 of the way up).  For the LFO, you will open the 5 LFO tab and drag the XFade Curve slider all the way to the top waveform (which should be a sine wave).  Next you can set the rate to any setting you’d like around the halfway point, where you adjust this is up to you.

Now we will map 5 LFO to the cutoff of Filter 1 (the Lowpass 4 filter) and adjust the mapping to slide between fully turned up to just about the halfway point on the cutoff setting.  To complete this preset and thicken the sound, we will add a reverb FX.  Select Reverb from FX1′s menu, and then adjust the Size, Density, and Dry/Wet settings all the way up.  Adjust the color setting on the reverb tab to 3/4 of the way or around there.  Lastly we will adjust the voicing and change the “Unisono” to 3 and leave the “Max” at 16.  Now you can tweak the settings until the atmosphere fits your liking.
