In this weeks member tutorial, we finish our Electronica Sounds using NI Massive series with part 4. In part 4, Jonny shows us how to create a dazzling drum and bass sequence using only NI Massive!
Welcome back to the fourth and final part of our Electronica Sounds with NI Massive series. In this tutorial, Jonny shows how to make a sweet drum sequence and a complimentary bass line. This is all made inside NI Massive using steppers and performers!
Much like the previous drum sequence tutorial, Jonny uses one performer to create the kick drum sound, another perform to create a clap/snare and a final performer to create the hi-hat. For the kick drum, he uses the performer to modulate the pitch and amp of Oscillator 1 to create the sound. The other two performers modulate the both the Color and the Amplitude of the Noise Oscillator to create both the clap and hi-hat sounds.
With a final LFO slot open, Jonny uses it to modulate the Wt-position of OSC1 to create the complimentary bass sequence. By allowing the LFO to modulate Wt-position of OSC1, the sound gets an added bit of square wave that not only resides in the same oscillator as the bass drum, but compliments it as well!
We hope that you’ve enjoyed this series of tutorials. Hopefully you have gained some new NI Massive techniques that will help push your own sound designs to all new levels. If you you have any questions or comments we would love to hear them! Also, we would love to hear what you’ve created using these techniques or variants of. So until next time, keep creating!
