Ah, ok. Yes. The best satire is close enough to that which it is satirising to cause potential confusion to those not paying enough attention. Bravo
I was about to say the same thing until I read your comment, almost got trolled

Which OS on the Mac? I have El Capitan on a late 2012 Imac, i5 Intel, 32gb Ram. Massive X shows as uninstalled on Native Access, but when I launch it, it fails due to OS "incompatibility". I also have AVX1.0.
i have 10.10.3 and i not going even test (is not supported os ersion even) i wait getting pc for music.

I've been running it on a mid-2012 MacBook Pro, which has AVX1.0, running 10.12.6. Haven't had any issues so far!

Turns out running Massive X in KK is pretty slick. The macros that are already mapped to wavetable position/volume, filter cutoff/resonance and attack/release upon loading the init patch are ready to go on the 8 knobs of the keyboard. Huge timesaver. Can forgive the (hopefully) temporary absence of MIDI learn for making me notice this. I never use KK because loading instruments via the horrific tag cloud is so clunky, but will use it for this until MIDI learn is implemented.

You can collapse the tag clouds and not use them, y'know :)
Yeah, thanks, I know. I guess being greeted by a messy, sensory overload that I have to close each time is just psychologically repelling to me. That it doesn't remember my choice and I have to close it each time also feels ridiculous.

Even once you get past the tag cloud, searching by instrument feels clumsy and restrictive--have to choose vendor or category sort, no choosing your own ordering, user stuff is inexplicably sorted separately from the rest. I get there is subjectivity here, but to me this feels like very bad design.

Here I was trying to say something nice about KK!

... If you spend a bunch of money on a new product, you read the system requirements. Right? And if you don't, that was a dumb thing to do, no? Stop trying to shirk your responsibility.

Do you yell at companies for having agreed to stuff you don't like through the Terms and Conditions that you didn't read as well?

Mind-Boggling.

Anyway, I like Massive X but I'm not going to be using it much. Having Komplete 12 CC means having enough synths to last me a lifetime (or at least until next month) and I'm still wrapping my head around FM8. And Reaktor. I really like the interface and KK integration however, so who knows.

Interesting... I went through all the factory patches and no such thing occuring. Care to post some of those presets for me to check?

I've just started using it. Massive X sounds amazing, it really does.

Does anyone know if there are plans for more presets to be released? It seems like there aren't that many included in the factory bank.

Also, not being able to see changes made to any of the envelopes on the graphical representation is a big let down.

Yes, likely more presets to be added soon (I’m one of the preset designers). I’d also imagine we’ll start seeing third party preset releases soon too.

I agree they were a little skimpy with the presets. Synth Presets has a preset pack you can buy and here are 40+ free presets at Angelic Vibes:

Those Angelic Vibes presets are white nice, thanks for sharing them. I've noticed Massive Z doesn't do folders in your user presets folder so they're all mixed in with mine now. Hopefully this will be fixed!
