Aftertouch has its own dedicated modulator (Modwheel, Pitch, Breath and Expression were left out entirely) so there is no specific need to assign Aftertouch to Macro 2...
So yes, midi learn Modwheel on Macro 1, and then every preset already has a variety of parameter assignments to Macro 1. So if you just want modwheel only on filter cutoff on some preset, you have to find all the parameters where macro 1 is assigned and disable them. You cannot just say, oh I like this preset but would like Modwheel on a particular parameter and just do it.
Oh, and maybe I also like what the preset designer assigned to Macro 1 and if I want to keep it, I have to move those assignments to another Macro... or maybe on that preset I would rather use my expression pedal, so I have to again transfer the assignments from one Macro knob to another Macro knob that has the Expression pedal midi learned (and delete whatever is on that Macro) in order to keep them. Like Modwheel, it is not possible to just assign Expression pedal directly.
The only way to assign any parameters to the Pitch wheel is to also midi learn the Pitch wheel to a 3rd Macro. But then you can never use the Pitch wheel just for pitch on other presets without tweaking them because it will control that Macro on every preset whether you want it or not.
With Massive, if you want to make use of the Pitch wheel, Mod wheel, Expression Pedal, and or Breath Controller, you have to permanently assign the four of them to 4 macros and then remake all the presets macro assignments (even if you want to just use some of them occasionally).
It is a poor design choice for people who regularly use these controls in creative ways and potential buyers should know because most other synths you might buy today do not have this limitation. It is easy to assume that it's possible with any modern synth and not realize the extra work Massive requires.
