How to Make a Seven Lions Style NI Massive Supersaw Synth
We welcome back the amazing K0SM0SKAT today as she walks us through how she make a Seven Lions style NI Massive supersaw synth patch. As usual, she moves along very quickly and assumes that you have a decent working knowledge of Massive. So be prepared to pause the video several times to keep up while following along with her. This sound is pretty easy to customize in any number of ways, so as soon as you are done recreating the sound featured in this lesson try customizing it to make it your own!
This NI Massive supersaw starts out with a Square-Saw I wavetable loaded into OSC1, set to run in Bend-/+ mode and the pitch is dropped just shy of one octave. Then a Square-Saw II wavetable is loaded into OSC2, with the pitch offset to -0.07. The same wavetable is also loaded into OSC2 , set to run in Bend- mode with the pitch raised just shy of one octave. The variations in pitch values creates a wider sound with a small amount of phasing.
This sound is then run through a Daft filter loaded into the Filter1 panel. An envelope is set up and assigned to modulate the Cutoff parameter of the Daft filter. Some Bright Noise is introduced to give this NI Massive supersaw a little more character. A Hardclipper insert effect is used to give it an edge and some drive.
On the Voicing tab, the total number of Unison Voices is increased to six. The Pitch Cutoff and Pan Position features are then used to spread the sound out and create more depth and width. Some Reverb gives this NI Massive supersaw more room to move around in and the EQ helps to finish shaping the sound.
