Massive X synth has been released in Juni 2019
Massive X is the latest synthesizer from Native Instruments. It is a mordern synthesizer with lots of modulation capabilities and more of everything.
New CPU requirements
Massive X requires an AVX compatible CPU, which counts for CPUs from 2011 and on.
The use of AVX seems to strain the cpu less than other new synths. Massive X has good cpu usage for a mordern synthesizer.
The Factory sounds
The factory sounds shows some of what it can do but it has potentiale for much more complex sounds for music production and sound design.
Like with any other soft synth there will be lots of high quality 3. party preset packages for this synth in the future. The down side is that the preset system is not build for 3. party deveopers. Hopefully an update will fix this. The old massive synth have a better preset system.
Is it worth a license?
If you have Komplete 12 you got it as part of it and it you do not it will propably be on sale sometimes.
It sounds good and has a lot more complex sonic capabilites compared to the old Massive.
It should propably compete with Arturia Pigments, Omnisphere and other newer synthesizers on the marked.
There was a lot of hype about this synth about a year before the final release and some users are disapointed but it is still a capable synth.
The price is close to Arturia Pigments and a lot less than Omnisphere 2 and the Komplete 12 users got it at no extra cost.
