    Okay, so I'm gonna teach you how to make an Ocean sound using NI Massive.

    It'll be quick, and brief.

    Turn off all your oscillators. Go to your Noise tab, turn the Amp up to 12 o'clock. Now you'll have a white noise, congratulations!
    Go to your filter, use a lowpass (just lowpass 4, 2 whatever) and have it set to about 11 o'clock with the resonance up a tiny bit. Just a little.

    Go to FX 1, choose Reverb and just leave the knobs how they are. FX 2 choose Phaser and turn the rate all the way down. Now it's sounding a little better, huh?

    Put a LFO under your pan knob in the little box with the hyphen underneath. For those of you who do not know what that looks like, it's this -

    Now, don't do 1 over 1, etc. Turn the rate down to about 1 o'clock. And don't drag the panning down too much. Half way is nice.

    And now to finish, Go to ENV 4 (envelope 4) and just turn the Attack up to 12 o'clock.

    Now you have a.. Beach.. Wind sound I guess. Goes great with pads and give a more full, atmospheric vibe.

    Happy producing.

    I'm one of the judges, not allowed to enter the competition, haha. It's just throwing random things out, hoping it will help someone.

    This sound would be cool for filling out the higher frequencies and add some side chain compression triggered from your kick and you will get a very cool effect almost pumping your kick
