The Massive virtual synthesizer offers a degree of flexibility that few other synths can match. Any control on the synth can control any parameter, making the creative possibilities of this instrument nearly limitless. After you've spent hours perfecting a bass or a pad, you'll want to save the sound, back it up and then open it when you want to work on it again. You can also import sounds that other musicians have created into Massive.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" menu button, and then type "Massive" into the search box. Click "Massive" to launch the standalone version. If you're using the VST version, open its VST plugins section, click "Massive" and drag it into an empty MIDI track.

  2. 2

    Click the small grey "File" button at the top of the Massive window. Navigate to the folder in which the sound that you want to import is stored.

  3. 3

    Click on the sound, and then click "Open" to import it into Massive.

Tips and warnings

  • Click "Recent Files" in the "Files" menu to see a list of the last 10 sounds you've opened in Massive.
  • Massive can only open sounds saved in the Native Instruments "KSD" format.
