ModeAudio’s Open Spaces is a soundset for the Massive synthesizer, featuring a collection of 50 presets and MIDI loops.
Like many producers born in the age of digital sound, we’ve always been fascinated by the beautifully, warm, lush and unpredictable character of vintage analog synths and gear.
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to twist and warp cutting-edge tools to produce and, dare we say it, even improve upon these gorgeous synth tones and textures – Open Spaces – Massive Vintage R&B Presets represents the next level in this journey to woozy sonic heaven!
The pack includes bass (10), lead synth (10), keys/electric piano (5), melodic synth (10), percussion synth (4), pad (4), gated synth (2), and sfx presets (5). MIDI files are included as well so you can get an idea of how ModeAudio envisioned these patches.
Each preset has all 8 macro controls assigned with useful parameters for tweaking the sounds.

Don’t like: —
ModeAudio has managed to give this soundset that warm, lush flavor of the vintage analog type synth sound that Open Spaces was designed to bring.
Within the pack there is plenty variety with solid bass, interesting leads, some nice pads, useful percussion and sound fx, and some lovely keys.
The sound design isn’t necessarily ground-breaking, but the patches have character and one can tell they were made with care.
In short, Open Spaces is another solid pack of inspiring Massive presets.
