You will learn how to create a sound using MASSIVE X and make yourself familiar with some of the instrument’s key features and workflows. Additional tips at the end of each section can serve as a starting point for your own explorations.
If you have some experience with synthesizers, feel free to jump straight into any section using the navigation above. For beginners, we recommend spending some time reading through the whole guide.
First, take a look at the user interface to get an overview:
Find, save, and load presets, adjust the output volume, and set the view size in the MASSIVE X drop-down menu. Additionally, you can use the Header to assign pitch bend, modulation wheel, aftertouch, and Macros to control your sound.
The Audio Modules generate and process sound. You can freely connect them in the Editor’s Routing page to achieve a wide range of different synthesis techniques.
Select the page you want to view in the Editor below. The available pages include all modulation sources as well as Voice and Routing. From the Navigation bar, you can assign modulation sources to parameters by using drag and drop.
Access modulation parameters, the Voice page, and the Routing page as selected in the Navigation Bar. On the Voice page, you can set polyphony, unison, and harmonizing. On the Routing page, you can connect the Audio Modules.
Loading the Quick Start Guide Presets
To get started, load the preset named Init - Massive X Blank from the Quickstart category in the preset menu.
Note: Click the user interface in the background or the X icon in the upper-right corner to close the menu after selecting the preset.
