Here’s a tutorial video on how to set up and use Native Instruments Massive synth with Ableton Live.

When I was exploring sound design and synthesis possibilities with Native Instruments Massive, I came across a great website,, that focused on video tutorials on it.  The site is run by Steve Foulds, who has posted a bunch of free content and also has a very affordable 3 hour video tutorial course.  I purchased it, and even though I’d been using Massive for years, it really helped take my sound design to the next level.  I’m really happy with the sounds I’m able to generate in Massive now and I’m making killer bass patches using all the modulation possibilities like LFOs, envelopes, steppers and especially performers.

I wanted to give Steve and a big shout out and say thanks for the course.  Big ups brotha.
