Pro Tips For The Noise Oscillator In Massive
In this tutorial, learn how to use the noise oscillator in Massive to make unique sounds like drums and FX patches as well as use it as a tool to beef up leads and basses.
The noise oscillator in Massive is a pretty versatile sound design tool. You can create whole sounds using just the noise oscillator or use it to help add to a lead or a bass. If you haven’t seen the other parts in this series check them out first!
The noise oscillator in Massive has what you could consider standard noise types like white noise and brown noise, but it also has some pretty unique and experimental ones like Paper and Murmur. White noise is great for making drum sounds, especially hi hats. The other noises are great for experimental basses and even creating crazy sweeps and risers. The Paper Noise is literally a loop of paper being crinkled!
One of my personal favorites is the Bright Noise. It’s essentially a thinner white noise that is perfect for creating separation between a lead and your mix. It adds a good amount of hi end and the fact that you can control the color (EQ-ish low pass filter) of the noise, makes it even more flexible.
