Here’s how Focusrite hardware owners can download Native Instruments Massive for free
If you are one of the remaining 12 people in the world who do not own a copy of Native Instruments Massivebut you own Focusrite hardware, then you’re in luck.
Massive is part of Focusrite’s latest Plugin Collective giveaway, meaning it’s available to any Focusrite user who registers a piece of equipment. Collective members can also grab iZotope Elements, the simplified mastering software suite, and access a three-month trial of NI’s Komplete Now subscription service.
Released in 2006, Massive became one of the popular post-2000s and 2000s plugin synths, especially among electronic dance music producers. Although we have since had Massive X, something of a successor, the original Massive is still a mainstay in the studio of many musicians.
Designed for searing bass and leads, Massive comes with over 1,300 sounds, each with its own preset macro controls for easy editing. Its synthesis is based on a unique wave sweeping algorithm that manifests in three parallel oscillators, and it comes with 85 carefully tuned wavetables.
Massive is still on sale on the NI website for $149 / £129, so the chance to get it for free is one eligible users shouldn’t pass up. Ozone Elements sells for $129.
