A bit odd that we’re 2 weeks out with almost no demos. I mean, with the sale, I went for it anyway, but I’m surprised we’re not seeing something by now.

Yep. I guess the whole timetable of this project is a mess.
Has been delayed twice and release date in june has been pushed to way the end of june, and probably they still need more time for a proper release.

They could delegate stuff like communication, demo's etc to a dedicated communication team so this would not take any resources from the project team but I'm guessing we'll see nothing of the sort until the 27th.

But... it's all a guessing game.

It’ll be great!

We’re all doomed!

Pick one. :)

Errr, not really? I mean, I’ve seen more previews of Massive X than any other NI product before launch. Although that’s mainly because, as far as I recall, they just launch it without any announcement beforehand.
I’m not reading much into it, we’ll see.

I'd hope if there were issues with the launch we'd know by now. Especially since there are probably a lot of people buying K12 in the sale with the expectation of getting their hands on Massive X in the near future.

Ah. Thanks.
Solo the track and render or bounce. Freeze prints it, but it's invisible. Print = render. I'd love to keep it all up as MIDI but if your machine won't, deal.
It's also a pretty rich synth, layer upon layer is doing too much particularly as unsupportable as it seems to be. Sometimes more is not more.

Dragon said they would release in june come what may ;) . That"s probably the right assessement. Going for a third delay would make them a laughing stock.

I expect a release on the 27th with basic functions working but with bugs here and there.

I have no crystal ball though.

There's a lot more than "basic" functions working in there. :)

Looks like there is going to be a lot of upset Mac Pro Cheese Grater owners.

Expecting some more info on Massive X next week. Maybe one last Massive X Labs or pre-order availability for those without K12. ;)
