    i absolutely love the lead in this tune filtering in from around 0.50 here:

    Sounds like a distorted sine layered with a square wave - how exactly would I create this on NI Massive though? sorry for being a noob, this has puzzled me for some time since I'm still a beginner. thanks alot

    Sound's like a sample to me from the original tune.

    Sounds to me like a square wave (possibly layered in octaves) with a short decay and release time, maybe a bit of reverb to taste. Maybe try layering a piano sound underneath it aswell?
