Pro Tips on Working with NI Massive Vocal Synths
This helpful video tutorial shares one of the quickest and easiest ways to make simple NI Massive vocal synths in less than a minute. It also goes on to share several pro tips on how you can go about tweaking and customizing them to better match your projects. We doubt very much that this sound design trend will end any time soon. On the contrary, it will probably continue to expand into even more musical genres in the next few years. So the more you know how to work with this type of sound, the better better prepared you will be to more and more variations throughout the coming years.
To make simple NI Massive vocal synths all you need to do is load a Square-Saw I wavetable into OSC1 (or whatever wavetable provides the harmonic elements you need for your current project) and route it to the Filter1 Panel. A Lowpass4 Filter is then loaded into the Filter1 panel. An Lfo is set up and assigned to modulate the Cutoff parameter of the Lowpass4 Filter. Then use a Sample and Hold insert effect to expose the vocal characteristics of the synth. That’s it! It’s very basic, but it is a core sound you can then use to make countless NI Massive vocal synths from!
Here are a few pro tips to help you begin making the most of these NI Massive vocal synths you will be designing. First, the LFO can be tweaked in any number of ways to achieve a different delivery as it controls the cutoff parameter of your selected filter. Simply swapping out LFO waveforms is one thing you can do. Another is changing the rate at which it oscillates. You can also modulate different parameters within the LFO itself to achieve even more complex and interesting versions of your sound.
Another way you can change up your NI Massive vocal synth sis to tweak the Sample and Hold insert effect. You can also add a Bitcrusher, Hardclipper or Sine Shaper for interesting alternate versions. Using Key Tracking or Velocity based modulation are a couple of options to make your NI Massive vocal synths even more dynamic or consistent depending upon how you decide to apply them. And, of course, you can swap out the waveform that is loaded into your main oscillator to really change things up!
