Is massive good for making...?

Is massive any use when it comes to making really big saws? I only use it for making bass sounds mainly.

Re: Is massive good for making...?

I'm sure...I mean...lots of bass sounds are made with saw waves. Are you talking about a particular kind of saw lead or something. I don't own Massive myself, but I'm pretty sure it comes with some kind of super saw waveform, does it not?

Re: Is massive good for making...?

Yes. Though in my opinion the oscillators lack warmth and sound a little thin. You could always make three saw oscillators, detune them slightly, bump the number of voices up to some ungodly number, detune those, widen them, add some distortion and a touch of reverb (all in Massive). That would be a monstrous saw wave but it would also sound like a crapton of white noise.

If you're taking about making a supersaw, I'd go for something else. Sylenth1 is good for that if you want to keep things simple, Zebra2 is also brilliant for that and pretty much everything else. I agree with Anodyne in the sense that the oscs are a little thin and digital sounding in massive.

Massive can make pretty much any sound. Amazing for Dnb and autechre sounds

Re: Is massive good for making...?

For a saw lead, I'd take Sylenth 1 any day.

Well I'd take Sylenth 1 for anything period

Massive comes with unisono features, complete with pitchsifting/pan/wavetableposition knobs. Just twiddling with those on a basic saw wave should do the trick. I don't think there is a supersawwaveform specifically, though.

Re: Is massive good for making...?

I think Massive is one of the best synths around, because it's realy handy to make almost every sound. Well, I think, it's all about comfort to use. If you are used to Sylenth1 or strobe, there no big deal. And still, Massive in my opinion has much to suggest

Absolutely... I think massive has edge with hard leads, saws and stuff. When tweaking for sounds, it might be hard to tackle at times, but delivers when used correctly!

Massive is probably one of the easiest-to-use commercial synths on the market. Not sure where you're coming from, really.

Re: Is massive good for making...?

you can use it for those kinda big trance sounds - and it does osund very good. Alot of big producers use sylenth for sounds like that though.

id say like everything its easy once you know how to use it - it can be fairly daunting when you start out

id say things like sylenth looks easier to use but is in fact harder
