Ripping effect with LFO in NI Massive
This ripping effect is quite a versatile sound, but so simple – you should be able to find a lot of uses for this effect/sound… whether as a rise towards a break or to create some rhythmic texture to your track.
In this tutorial we will be making this effect…[audio:https://www.massivesynth.com/audio/ripper.mp3]
I’m sure you’ve heard this effect many times before – it’s basically just manipulating the pitch of an OSC whilst manipulating the rate length at the same time.
So to begin , create an empty massive patch and set up OSC 1 like so
Then, LFO5 like so
And finally, ENV1 like so
That’s it! Very simple effect, but play around with the settings to build on the effect. For example you may want to add the ENV 1 to the dry/wet of a reverb so it starts of dry but as the LFO rate opens it gets wetter.
Another interesting effect is to add in a second OSC but instead of setting a negative pitch (-12) try adding a positive pitch… in fact you could build a chord with the OSCs so by the time the rate starts slowing the chord starts forming!
Interesting, but simple effect with NI massive.
