Oh, and they could get hid of the lag when opening the GUI or changing presets.
This is the biggest issue for me. I honestly don't care about wavetable import although it would be nice. I just don't want to it feel like a laggy POS.

Hi, it's me again. Back again, looking to see if massive x has a proper preset browser yet? Oh well. On we go.
Version 1.0.0 - 2019-06-27

Two years and four months is a lot of time to put a proper browser in. But at least they are using ISO-8601 standardized dates in their release notes.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

The other issue on the biggest issue is there is not even a proper preset browser, no text search, no filter, no sorter. Compared to the older Massive... This product is unfinished and still sold as a final thing. I can't even ctrl+A to select and replace the "Native Instrument" text in the Creator field when I create a preset. Ridiculous...
I actually would use Massive X a lot more without all this lag and no preset manager.
I see u-he's timeline is like making full product compatibility for M1 in few months. NI can't even add a search bar in 3 years.

As I said before, I wouldn't be surprised if they choose to go straight ahead and release Massive X2 instead (hopefully free for MX owners, of course)

it seems to me there's some sort of attitude at NI that user and third party content is not as important as content created in-house

I'm beginning to wonder if it's foolish to hope for a 1.4 that fixes some of its bigger issues.

Only beginning? :hihi:

Seriously... NI has a lot of work to do to get their whole line over to native Apple Silicon, VST3, scalable GUI's and so on.

I hope for x.x.x.x updates ;) Like a change of size of one letter in the font per update.
You can't complain that there's no updates! :D
Beware! The software discussed in this topic has unacceptable aliasing at -386dBTP but it can be fixed by changing the sample rate to 12Bit

Granted, they're absolutely horrible. :lol:

Maybe instead of blaming them, you should blame the people who are in for stuff like that though. ;) I'm sure that they actually sell that crap.

Same with literally any controller these days, which comes with flashy flashy super kiddie colours.

It could be worse though… I bet its simply a joke for them to fool their fanboys and girls…
