It is in the bass patch this happens acutally. You can take a number of approaches. Some people like to make several bass patches with different waveforms then use the same midi track to trigger them randomly note by note for that crazy variying sound.
Alternatively you can use massive (which i think you mentioned) when designing your patch. Make a macro for example for the LFO rate(obvious boring wobble sound on the low pass filter). Add some phasing (perhaps a dampen, then go crazy. As massive i a wavetable synth..which means that as you move the wavetable position thee sound of the wave form will change. Automate this. Hell automate everything even voices. Effect like bitcrushing and overdrives.
You can then either record realtime modulations while the loop is playing and resample or you can draw in the automation.
Does this answer your question?
