Here's what some students are saying about this course:
"This course is amazing. I've tried to learn Massive through tons of Youtube videos and other sources previously. This course taught me so much more in the first couple of sections than all of my previous efforts combined. Dylan takes time and goes through every single slider, knob, and setting and describes it's function and usefullness. I'm about half-way through the lectures, and I can't wait to get to Section 8 where the knowledge is applied."
- J. DiPalmo
"Dylan's experience on the topic and his ability to analyze and simplify complex materials, compounded with solid presentation skills, rich articulation and enthusiasm throughout this lecture series, resulted in a 5-star winner product."
- A. Stergiopoulos
"Great intro to sound design using massive.. Dylan does a great job explaining the concepts without drowning you in a sea of technical information."
- F. Carvalho
"I am new with sound production and this course inspired me to keep learning. Mr Bowes knows his stuff and he teach based on his own experience instead of just following the course outline. Thanks man."
This course is a comprehensive training course in the popular and powerful "Massive" VST plug-in from Native Instruments. Using 100% high-definition screencasts, you will learn the ins and outs of this software.
In 1 week, you will be able to create huge, earth-shaking basses, lush pads, screaming leads, and even some crazy FX presets.
I created this course because learning the principles of true sound design opened up a world of possibilities for my productions. Massive helped get me there. Now I want to show you how to get there too.
You'll get access to 52 video tutorials. That's over 10 hours of content. Plus I include all of the preset files that we build in the course for free. All for a really great price with a 30 day money-back guarantee. You can't beat that.
You know that you're sick of being a preset-picker. Learn sound design and get over that production plateau that has been making you hate your mediocre mixes.
You will become a master of Massive.
A few words about the methodology of this course. The first third of the course features lectures that describe elements of the software including the user interface, navigating presets, and how to control parameters. The middle portion of the course delves into sound design techniques and modulation assignments. The last third features in-depth tutorials about building specific sounds. If you already have a pretty good handle on Massive (or other soft synths) then you may want to skip the introductory portions. I designed this course to take the student from complete novice to expert. In other words, I wanted a student who has no experience with sound design or synthesizers to feel comfortable. However, I also provide lots of deep content for more experienced users. Plus, if you're like me, hearing someone else explain what I thought I already knew is still very helpful. All that to say, feel free to jump around in the chronology of the course. But don't take the fundamentals for granted.
- Anyone who wants to learn synthesis from a non-nerd
- Beginning to experienced music producers

In this lecture I describe several methods for acquiring the software.
In this lecture I provide an overview of Massive's User Interface, including the design philosophy of the software.
In this lecture I explore the different methods of locating presets, including attribute descriptions, different browser views, and search functions.
In this lecture I describe the format and methods of Massive's Menus and Sections.
In this lecture I describe the methods of adjusting and tuning parameters including faders and knobs.
In this lecture I describe briefly the purpose and functionality of Macro Controls. Massive provides eight controls which a sound designer can assign to one or several parameters. This enables a sound designer to control multiple parameters with a single knob.
In this lecture I describe signal flow within Massive. Signal flow is the process of a sound moving through the different components within a synthesizer. I explain the meaning of signal flow and how it can be used to shape a sound.
