Designing an NI Massive Trance Pluck
This tutorial will demonstrate how to create an NI Massive Trance Pluck. A versatile sound that can fit into most styles of music. The NI Massive Trance Pluck offers an easy to create pluck that will impress any listener.
To start the NI Massive Trance Pluck, assign OSC1 a Sin-Square wavetable and drop the Wt-position all the way down. Turn on OSC2 and assign it a Bender wavetable. Drop the Wt-position of OSC2 to about 20%, and make sure that both oscillators are running through Filter1.
Turn on Filter1 and assign a Lowpass 4. Drop the Cutoff to roughly 35% and drop the Resonance to just above zero. For the effects of the NI Massive Trance Pluck, assign a Dimension Expander to FX1, and Drop both the Dry/Wet and the Size to about 20%. Assign Reverb to FX2, and drop the Dry/Wet to about 10%. Turn on the EQ and drop the Low Shelf to about 45%.
Under the Voicing tab of the NI Massive Trance Pluck, turn the number of voices to 2, and adjust the Pan Position to the middle of Mono. In Envelope 4 (4 Env), turn down both the Delay and the Attack, but turn the Level of the Attack all the way up. Decay should be set halfway, and it’s level should be dropped to about 40%. S Loop should be set to 50% and Morph should be dropped all the way. The Morph Level should be maxed and the Release should be dropped to about 40%. Assign Envelope 4 (4 Env) to modulate the Weight-position of OSC2.
Envelope 1 (1 Env) should be set with Delay all the way down. Attack should be set to 20% and the Level maxed. Decay should be set to just under 50% and it’s level at about 20%. Set the release to near 20%, and then assign Envelope 1 (1 Env) to modulate the Cutoff of Filter1. With the Envelopes in place, it is time to kick back and enjoy your new NI Massive Trance Pluck!
