    Buy any synth. Fiddle with synth. Profit?

    Srsly, Nexus, Synthmaster (esp), Diva, Omnisphere (even) has plucks-like-that a-plenty.

    Best 2 stay away from romplers if u don't like their sound, but Nexus seemed like its whole purpose was plucking standard sounds. Or standard plucking sounds. Or sumthn. It might mean fiddling around with (a similar preset?) in the others I mentioned, then? Depends how much time u got 2 spare...

    Plucky ADSR (0 attack, short decay, 0 sustain) for all the filters for all the layers (because is not a single sound).
    You must find the waveforms in Massive.
    Then you have another set of techniques to make the sound wide - totally not pluck sound design related.

    NP, I didn't wanted to sound condescending, just wanted to point our the different stages in making a sound. Now days all the electronic music is made of layered sounds followed by effects - you will need to be able to identify what is what in the future when trying to recreate other sounds. Also is good to know what to expect from a layered sound before the effects are applied.

    Give it a fast attack, fast but not dramatic decay, moderate release, slight filter envelope to accentuate the pluck. Introduce unison and +1 octaves, pan em around to make it wide. Run through a colour box like Redline Preamp, SDRR, or Decapitator (whatever works for you). I'd dial in a relatively high amount of saturation and then pull back the mix knob to find a good balance. EQ using MS to accentuate the highs in the sides and keep the mid clean sitting with other instruments, then compress with a moderate attack time and short release time. Finally, add a good large reverb with a moderate decay. If you're unhappy with the width, experiment with something like Stereo Savage placed near the beginning of the FX chain, though I reckon it'd work best after the saturation stage.

    Hope this helps. It's tough to offer good advice off the top of my head, so consider it only a rough guideline. Experimentation will get you there!
