How to Make an NI Massive Hoover Bass

A classic sound in the house music scene, this tutorial shows how to create an NI Massive Hoover bass in just a couple of minutes!

Much like the Reese style bass, the Hoover has been recreated many times over the years and has found a place in many genres and sub genres of modern music. This particular NI Massive Hoover bass is a great example of how to design a big sound with very basic programming. This allows the sound to be more accepting of processing and tends to help it fit in a mix easily. You can, of course, have a lot of fun experimenting and tweaking to find your own version of this iconic sound. And there are plenty of parameters and features left untouched in this lesson, so as soon as you’re done following along you can begin taking the sound to a new level without having to begin a new session.

This NI Massive Hoover bass starts with a default Square-Saw I wavetable loaded into OSC1, set to run as a pure Sawtooth wave. A second Square-Saw I wavetable is then loaded into OSC2, set to run as a pure Square wave and the pitch is dropped one octave. A third instance of the wavetable is then loaded into OSC3, set to run as a pure Sawtooth wave and the pitch is raised one octave.

Now an envelope is set up and assigned to the Pitch parameter of all three main oscillators. This will allow for the signature pitch bend needed to make this NI Massive Hoover bass. The total number of octaves the pitch can be modulated is up to you and your project’s needs. The envelope can be adjusted to get the perfect delivery after the pitch modulation assignments have been programmed.

The total number if Unison Voices is increased to seven and this allows you to then use the Pitch Cutoff feature to introduce phasing through detuning, spreading the voices across the pitch range you feel best suits your music. This is all it take to make your own NI Massive Hoover bass form scratch. Now you can begin playing around with it until you have your own version.
