Massive Dubstep Presets Review by How to Make Electronic Music

Review from How to Make Electronic Music of Spf Samplers Massive Dubstep Prestes

First of all, the sounds are designed by Oscar Pablos aka “Ojah”. I have not heard of this engineer before, but after quickly listening some of the patches, it was clear that Oscar knows how to treat Massive.

So, let’s have a closer look what’s included in the package.

As I already mentioned, the pack holds a total of 200+ patches and they have been organized into seven folders:

  • ARP & SEQ contains 26 arpeggios and sequences
  • BASS folder holds 51 bass sounds
  • FX has 26 sound effects
  • KEYS includes 26 keyboard-ish sounds
  • LEAD folder contains 26 lead sounds
  • PAD has 26 pad sounds
  • SYNTHS holds 26 synth sounds

Each preset has 8 fully functional Macro controls so you can quickly and easily change the tone of the sound.

There’s also 100 MIDI files included (divided into folders as well) and they contain short sequences / riffs which you can import to your DAW and use i.e. as a source of inspiration for your own musical phrases. Each MIDI file is named after the patch it is composed for.

So how does the presets sound? Are they suitable for such style as Dubstep?

To put it shortly – I like majority of them and yes, IMO they fit perfectly for Dubstep and many other genres as well (DnB comes first to my mind).

The “ARP & SEQ” patches are a quick way to build interesting, melodic rhythmic beds to i.e. support the drum section of a track. There’s some really quirky (quirky in a GOOD way) and crispy sequences.

“BASS” presets are fantastic! Lot’s of powerful, nasty, raw sounds with plenty of sub tones and filter modulation madness. Bass is very important in Dubstep and these can easily meet the requirements for creating a monstrous bassline. This folder contained my favourite set of patches.

“FX” has a great selection of uplifters, downlifters and other special sound effects that are required for making efficient build ups /drops.

For the need of those mellow Wurlitzer style riffs and organ melodies, “KEYS” has couple of real gems. I didn’t like all of the patches in this section though, but that’s just purely a matter of taste and what kind of sound one is after for (I’m a fan of keys with a more softer tone). Of course, any of these patches can be tweaked further to meet everyone’s requirement so it’s not an issue.

The “LEAD” patches contains couple of really slashing leads which’ll easily ‘drill through the mix’ if such thing can be said.

The pads in the “PAD” section are more on the edgier side – they are not so much of those lush & warm -type of carpets, but should fit well for Dubstep though.

Presets in the “SYNTHS” folder kind of continues on the same route as the “LEADS”, but with a more of like sound effect -style character.

All in all, the ”Massive Dubstep Presets” is a pretty nice collection of Dubstep patches and they should keep you creative for quite some time! Personally, I’m finding most use for the bass patches.

Well done, Spunkface and Oscar! 8-)
