MassiveSynth has launched Hexagon, a collection of 50 Native Instruments Massive presets inspired by the sound of Boards of Canada.
Are you looking for beautiful soundscapes and drifting chords in a Boards of Canada style sound?
Various older analogs have inaccuracies. Massive out the box has a clean/digital sound to it. We’ve built these sounds from the ground up to include inaccuracies and defects inherent in older analog synths. The sounds themselves have been inspired by countless hours of listening to BoC’s albums to give you a rich bank of beautiful sounds.

- 8 Bass.
- 4 FX.

Zenhiser has announced Massive Progressive Presets 2, a collection of 100 Progressive House presets for Native Instruments Massive.
Massive Progressive Presets 2 has everything you need to blast out your next peak time monster, epic leads, etherial pads, huge stabs, mesmerising sequences and solid bass sounds. Plus if you’re into the more deeper sound of Progressive House these presets have you covered there too. Totalling 100 presets this is definitely the preset pack for you, it’s an absolute must for all EDM producers and once you’ve played around with these Progressive House beauties you’ll be begging for a third instalment.
What we really like about these massive patches is they sound expensive, a lot of time has been logged in the studio to create these beauties and it shows. This gives these presets a huge range so it doesn’t matter if you’re into the sexier side of Progressive House or looking for that banging Main Room synth lead.
The soundset costs $25 AUD.
