That can't be done.

Well, I shouldn't say that. While you can take the saw waves and LP filters and make some string sounds or whatever, you're never going to get them to sound like the classical 80's string synths or brass. And the reason why is because hardware synths back in the 80's and such worked on a system of valves and circuits, controlled by voltage controllers. Massive is, of course, digital, and instead of relying on valves, voltage controllers, circuits or microprocessors, it relies on your computer's CPU, which means you don't get the vintage warm distortion, or w/e you want to call it, that you got from the analogue synthesizers. Of course, buying an analogue synthesizer is never out of the question, but they're either used on eBay or cost a lot of money.

Other than that, I have nothing really interesting to contribute to the thread.

boom. Each sound was obsessively designed to sound just like sounds from songs from the 80's and early 90's, mostly from artists like Vangelis, Vince diCola, and Depeche Mode.

here's some previews.
