    Is there any way that i can control a modulation parameter in Massive (not massive X) with external instruments? ie. whenever a kick in serum hits, it would modulate the tune parameter in OSC1 in massive? I don't see any external sidechain options.

    Depends on your host, some allow modulating automatable parameters through their built in modulation system. Reaper and Bitwig can do that. Possibly Live too.

    Not sure you can trigger it from an audio source, but using the MIDI effect Modulator you can apply an LFO or envelope to a CC you could assign to pitch in Massive... Depends on the style of music though, 4/4 would be simple, something a little less regular might make it difficult...

    Yea I know about assigning the envelope, but don’t want the tots freedom of it being solely being manipulated externally.
