Chamomileshark, As wonderful as I think Massive is, it wont get you the "rough & tumble" sounds I associate with the Microwave1/2/XT or PPG synths...its much more "polite" than that because of the extreme smoothness of its wavetables. Massive is more like a Waldorf Q/MicroQ with a proper set of wave...

Massive is about 12% as weird as the Q. Except for the comb filters, the Q is just a rather full featured VA. One I really love for sure - I've had six years with it for god's sake. I'm even considering the plus version now that Nova will have a few. Its not a wavetable synth, though, despite its t...

I've checked out the demo for a couple hours... The thing I don't like too much is that without the effects it's not that impressive, sounds like another Reaktor ensemble. I love the interface though, reminds me of the Sytrus plugin, it's almost like they were inspired by that. ? I don't think it s...

If you like this synth for wavetable type synthesis, what do you think of this synth compared to the Komplexor by terratec? The Micro Q emulation, Komplexor, is a nice VA with some extras but its by no means a wavetable synth . The 2 Wavetables with limited waves and limited scanning ranges are the...

How is Massive compared to Rapture and to Albino 3? Apples and oranges. The closest thing is the Waldorf Q and Microwave XT. I would compare Albino 3 to a "polite" Nord Lead 3... What is it that you don't like about Z3TA+, other than the interface? I like the interface a lot...I just don't think it...

S'Okay....I'll love Zebra2 enough for the nine of us. Maybe I was a bit strong in my chice of words but everybody's been pushing softsynths in my face...mainly Z3ta+ and Zebra. A lot of the timbres on those two seemed to be "padded out" to me with too much time-based Fx..give me the real deal pleas...

http://www.u-he.com/zebra/ Sorry, Piggy, everybody has recommended Zebra to me...nice enough interface, nice topology, but it sounds like c**p to me. Very much like Absynth only not so nice...I feel the same way about Z3TA+ One man's meat is another mans rotting donkey carcass. I'll let you know on...

There's a nice video of massives features at NI's website, it's pretty cool. about 20 minutes long, and 111 MB. http://www.native-instruments.com/fileadmin/downloads/mov/Massive_tour.mov Too funny. They added that recently...nice video. For the price (around $250 street), I don't think there's a be...
