About This Class

In this course, I will teach you how to design Trap sounds from the ground up using Native Instruments' Massive virtual analog synthesizer. In the process, you will become a master of this powerful software synthesizer!

Become a pro Trap Music DJ or Producer by mastering the tricks and techniques of top Trap artists such as Flosstradamus, Bro Safari, RL Grime, Diplo, DJ Snake, and more.

Using 44 high definition video lectures, I will show you exactly how producers and DJs build Trap patches using Massive.

I will teach you how to design dirty basses, huge leads, powerful plucks, trap drums, crazy FX patches, and much more.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the building blocks of specific sounds
  • Imagine a sound and design it from the ground up
  • Choose wavetables and oscillator modes
  • Set up different filter routings
  • Create modulation routings including sidechaining modulation
  • Control the signal flow of your patch
  • Set up insert and master FX
  • Set up the noise generator and feedback controls
  • Building and categorizing macro controls
  • and much more!

You will learn how to be a Trap Music Producer by mastering Native Instruments' Massive.

I'll walk you through designing more than 40 trap patches step-by-step. Using plain english, I will show you exactly how to design patches used by professional DJs and Producers for their tracks. For each lecture, I'll also include the Massive preset file we create together for your reference or for use in your own productions.

That means you'll get more than 40 FREE Massive presets!

I'll also provide several bonus lectures showing you how to apply modulation to your patches inside your host DAW as well as sampling vocals.

If you have ever wondered how Trap artists create sounds, this course will show you exactly that.

If you're just getting started with Massive, you will feel right at home with this course. If you are a more experienced producer, you will learn tons of new tricks and techniques I've developed over the years.

You will be able to do things with Massive you never imagined possible.

After taking my course, you'll be able to call yourself a pro Trap producer. 

If you want to make Trap Music with Massive, this course is for you.

Let's Go!
