Nucleus SoundLab has released DataBank Three, a collection of 100 patches for the Massive software synthesizer by Native Instruments.
DataBank Three continues the legacy of Nucleus SoundLab’s popular line of Native Instruments Massive presets. Each of the 100 patches delves into untouched frontiers of sound design, while maintaining the extreme attention to detail the DataBank series is known for.
DataBank Three is still primarily produced by Nucleus SoundLab Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen. However, some new faces have also contributed patches to give a different flavour to the overall set. Adam Fielding and Shaun Wallace have been sound designer mainstays in Nucleus SoundLab’s Reason ReFills for years. In DataBank Three they apply that experience to Massive with their own characteristic style. The result is an eclectic mix of pulsing arpeggios, complex modular sequences, mile-wide chordal pads, haunting plucked strings and piercing dance leads. As usual, no one electronic genre is represented in DataBank Three – you’ll find the sounds inside can work great in a variety of contexts.

- All presets utilitze all 8 Macro Knobs uniquely.
