Fear and Horror presets for MASSIVE from Xenos Soundworks

XenosMassive

Hey what’s good fam!

Hope all is well, today I’m checking out a new preset library for MASSIVE from Xenos Soundworks

This one is called “Fear and Horror”

Let’s check it out!

So what is Fear and Horror?

MassiveIt’s a collection of presets for NI MASSIVE designed to deliver frightening and disturbing sounds, textures, and a few impacts.

Things pads, bells, soundscapes, and eerie synth noises that you would hear in a horror movie or dark cinematic film.

There are 50 patches, and each one is mapped to the 8 macros of MASSIVE for quick tweaking and manipulation.

It definitely makes MASSIVE a bit more “evolving” and “soundscapish” than the normal edgy electronic sound it’s known for

Quick Specs

How does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderYou all know I like ambient, soundscape, atmospheric type sounds, and this preset library definitely has that.

What I really like though, is how the macro knobs are used, it really lets you get in and change the sound quickly.

I loved some of the bell sounds, and of course the pads and atmopshere’s were really smooth and evolving, yet with the turn of a knob they could get harsh and jagged.

Overall I feel like it delivers a unique sound to MASSIVE that may usually be reserved for other synths, or at least not what you would think of when you open up MASSIVE.

The patches are well designed an well thought out in terms of user control

So what’s the bottom line?

This is a great little collection of sounds for MASSIVE

It definitely delivers something different compared to many preset libraries out there for this plugin.

4subsI give Fear and Horror 4 out of 5 subs, it’s a solid collection with plenty of control to tweak and customize the sounds inside.

The price for Xenos libraries are really reasonable as well.

Go on over and check it out, as well as the many other presets he has for various plugins http://xenossoundworks.com/massive.html

  1. Xenos is a beast at sound design, got a lot of his stuff. If Atomic Beats was doing Horror or Sci-Fi film work this would be on top of my list, love the macros in his presets, well thought out good point! I might cop this for transition effects, some nice riser type sounds. Very cool.

    Interesting. Not the first patch from Xenos focusing on cinematic usage in Massive (which should give you an idea of how versatile it may be) and for this price and quality, unbeatable.
    Other patches from Xenos are great, worth checking too
