Yeah it is great.

But I'm currently wobbling with massive, can't bother to learn 10 synths at once... not productive.

If you learn synthesis techniques, you can apply them to every synth...

But Absynth is great... its not necessarily the ideal synth for making dubstep bass, but its great for atmospheres, sound design stuff...

its one of the spaciest synths out there now.

Indeed! I seem to make a lot of subtle practically unnoticeable atmospheres and sounds with it what really brighten up a track I tend to use it for that "iceing on the cake" effect, I don't open it for every track I make but its perfect for when theres a little something missing and you can't figure out what.


Very very very wise buy for those who love a good atmosphere!


EDIT: PLUS! The presets are not absolutely amazing, tis what I love about it, I mean they're good but they're not Massive good where you don't really have to mess around with them cause they're close to perfect but thats a matter of opinion

I think NI Complete Synths is an excellent deal, 4 synths in one - Massive, FM8, Absynth 4 (compatible with Absynth 3 presets) and Pro-53. Bought it last year.

I didn't find the presets in Massive to be all that good, haven't heard one that actually demonstrates Massive's full potential. Also I found Absynth to be pretty good for bass esp with the waveform morphing and the fact that's the sine wave weigh's a tonne (has a lot of weight) but it is let down by the filters + distortion imho.
