Excellent synth for producers! - Reviews Native Instruments Massive

There were no compatibility issues at all on WIndows 7 32 bits. The manual it's just that, an installation and usage manual, so don't expect it to explain in detail how to use the full potential of the software.
Setup it's really simple and straight forward, so you should not have any issues with it, so as the configuration.


Keep in mind that you'll need at least 4 gb of RAM in order to use it smoothly, as well as Core 2 Duo processor, otherwise it may not respond properly to MIDI triggering.
Works great for live performance, but it's recommended to use it for studio production only.
Interface could be a little bit more user-friendly.


As it is said, it's an excellent virtual synthetizer, designed for the experienced sound producer and oriented to electronic music. It has some really nice presets, but in order to get the fullest potential of the program, you will need advanced knowledge on sound production (envelopes, LFOs, oscilators, filters, etc).
It has great tools and even presets for the filters which makes the production a lot easier, helping you to discover new sounds each time you use it.
Again, it's not for rookie users, since at first glance you'll see all those knobs and oscilators and feel lost in a matter of seconds, so first you'll need to learn about sound production and creation. Otherwise, you'll find it pretty much useless and ask for a refund, giving away a great tool for sound desingning. Once you learn at least the basics, you'll find why it's called MASSIVE.

Great software and worths the price and time!
