Making a Nice NI Massive Big Room House Lead Synth

This NI Massive Big Room House lead synth is a really nice sound and will work in more genres other than just House music!

Big Room is characterized by emotional breakdowns with long build-ups followed by an energetic and melodic drop. It has evolved and matured over the last couple years, and although some still do not recognize it as a truly legit sub-genre at this point in time, it is probably just a matter of time. This NI Massive Big House lead synth tutorial does not have the best audio, but the sound itself is solid, as is the lesson that accompanies it. We normally only feature videos with better A/V quality to make it easier for everyone to follow along with, but this particular sound is worth it. Keep in mind that this is not just a house sound, regardless of the name if this post. This type of lead instrument can be used in many different electronic and popular music styles.

To start this NI Massive Big Room House lead out a Square-Saw I wavetable is loaded into all three main oscillators. OSC1 has a pitch value of 0.00 and the Wt-position is set in the middle. OSC2 has a pitch value of -12.00 and OSC3 has a pitch value of 12.00. Both of these oscillators have the Wt-position knobs set fully to Square. This sound is then run through a Lowpass 4 filter.

The total number of Unison Voices is increased to 16 on the Voicing tab, and the synth is set to run in Monophonic mode with the Trigger set to Always. At this point you will want to adjust the amount of Glide that is present, which can be done on the OSC tab. Not that the basic character of the sound is starting to develop, we can focus on making this NI Massive Big Room House lead bigger and more unique.

A Classic Tube Amp is added via the FX1 tab, which introduces some drive and distortion. And some Reverb is applied to give us the classic Big Room feel. An LFO is set up and assigned to modulate the Cutoff parameter of this filter, as well as the pitch of each of the three main oscillators. Now if you really want to unleash the hidden funk of this NI Massive Big Room House lead, you can also assigned a acro to control the Amp parameter fo the LFO, as well as another Macro to bend the pitch of all three oscillators simultaneously. With the proper automation programming, or performance skills, you now have a super funky synth to really make your fans move!

Cheers,
OhmLab
