Native Instruments has released an update to its Massive X software synthesizer instrument.

Version 1.2 comes with an extra 100 diverse, expertly-designed presets ranging from basses and leads, to FX, pads, and plucks.

The update also contains new features and bug fixes including a lightguide for Performer Mode for the Komplete Kontrol S-Series keyboards, and drag and drop preset loading.

Changes in Massive X v1.2

  • Added: The Lightguide on KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series Keyboards indicates the remote octave of the Performer.
  • Added: Dropping presets on the UI saves them in the user folder.
  • Improved: Demo time has been increased from 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Fixed: Stereo Delay with sync no longer causes audio dropouts on selection of another track.
  • Fixed: Vertical Grid in the Tracker editor no longer shows wrong values.
  • Fixed: The Exciter Envelope display curve no longer jitters when “Hold” is set to 0 and “Ratio” is moved.
  • Fixed: The INIT preset is loaded in Pro Tools on initial loading.
  • Fixed: All parts of the application now mark the current preset with an asterisk when edited.
  • Fixed: Freezing and unfreezing of a track now results in the same sound. This occasionally was not the case before.
  • Known issue: FL Studio 20.5 VST: when loading a preset the interface will shrink. Fix: update to Fl Studio 20.6.
  • Known issue: Cubase and Studio One: text input does not work correctly when Massive X is hosted in Komplete Kontrol or Maschine KPI view.

The update is now available from the Native Access app.
