    not made a reece on massive before but suppsose the principal is the same.

    set 1 osc to -12 and osc 2 to about -10
    play a long note and its a very basic reece type bass.
    to get wobble on it youd have to set the sync speed on an lfo and drag and drop it in the cut off nob of the filter (notch filter usualy is the best imo)

    obviously thats very basic, you will need to add multiple fx (chorus, distortion) to the reece to get it sounding like a mean muthafuka.

    edit. its actually easier to do on the 3xosc in fruity.

    hi mate, making a reece is probably one of the most asked questions in DnB - make sure u google somethin like "how to make a reece dnb" etc

    start of with 2 saw waves (2 oscillators), detune one a few cents - and the other a few cents + to get more depth to the sound (although make sure you detune by the same amount either way), try playing it at a relatively low note, just see what sounds good (as it will be used over a sub bass at the end of the day)

    now split your basic detuned saw wave into 3 channels (or just copy that synth patch 3 times so 3 synths with the exact same sound - whatever works easier for you in ur set up). 1 channel will be "low", 2nd "mid" 3rd "high" you want to eq each accordingly:

    low:
    cut the mid and hi frequencies and possibly boost the lower frequencies slightly

    mid:
    cut the low and high frequencies, possibly boost the mids slightly

    hi:
    cut the low and mid frequencies, possibly boost the hi slightly

    Make sure your EQs "overlap"each other so u don't have any gaps

    Now u want to process each channel separately:

    low:
    try using heavy compression some distrotion

    mid:
    compression, distortion, maybe some chorus / phase

    hi:
    distortion / chorus / phase / stereo enhancing / reverb etc

    theres ofcourse a lot fo different types of effects you can use to process these individually but at the end of the day its down to you to experiment and make a reece that is unique to you ;) those are just some simple guideline

    hope it helps :D

    edit: for wobble try playing with the lfo filters once you've made ur sound ;)

    If you're completely new to Massive, do this:

    1. File -> New Sound

    2. OSC1 should be on Square Saw 1, Pitch -10.00

    3. Global Tab -> BPM 174 (or whatever)

    4. Voicing Tab -> Unisono: 3, Monorotate: Checked, Legato Triller: Checked, Pitch Cutoff: On put the knob about 6 clicks to the right so that only 3 are visible to its left, Pan Position: On.

    That's basic sound I think, can put C Tube and Double Notch on also or layer it with a Sine wave whatever.

    layer up shit loads of differently detuned saw waves and then add some distortion and a phaser, SICKNESS.
