Native Instruments Massive Drum Kit & Bassline Tutorial

So we all know that you can make a bass with NI Massive. And you can make all sorts of drum elements with Massive as well. But how about using one instance of Massive to build a drum kit and bassline?

[aside title=”Instant Band!“] Taking advantage of the Performer and NI Massive’s multiple oscillators, one MIDI note is all you need![/aside]
This is a great video showing off some serious potential within NI Massive to not just create one instrument, but an entire rhythm section, including the bassline! Utilizing the abilities of the Performer, the Noise oscillator, some Filters and all three main Oscillators, YouTube user hearIMUR has put together a wonderful example of creativity and efficiency. Keep in mind as you go through this tutorial with him, that you can apply many different wavetables to achieve some very cool sounds other then the ones featured here. And what’s really great is that only one MIDI note is used to run the entire thing. Reminds me of a certain tutorial series I did a while back here…

Starting with a simple kick drum, he then adds a snare drum, some hi-hats and then finally the bassline. The hi-hats are only using the noise oscillator, which leaves the three main oscillators for the kick, snare and bass. Cleverly programmed lowpass filters are used to accentuate all the right elements of the different drums parts to achieve a nicer sound. This is also what creates the bassline in the end!

You can easily create a wide range of your own sounds for similar drum kit and bass ensembles within NI Massive by simply changing the type of noise used for the hi-hats, the wavetables used for the snare, kick drum and bass and don’t forget the filters. He uses the Modulation OSC panel, but to very little effect here in this lesson. You can adjust the Pitch value up or down a bit to generate some very unique results. You also have the two Insert panels wide open for tweaking. And, of course, the EQ  and FX could very quickly change everything.

There is really no end to what can be done with an idea like this one, once you begin to go to work in your DAW. There you have all the effects and mixing options you could ever want. So have at it! And let us know what you come up with by sharing something you made as a by-product of this tutorial in our Facebook group.

Cheers,
