Native Instruments Razor
RAZOR utilizes up to 320 partials for its sound shaping algorithms. The dual oscillator section provides a wide arsenal of timbres, ranging from typical analog-style waveforms to unconventional models like “Primes”, “Sick Pitchbend” and “Hoover Sync”.
The two filter sections offers 20 different filter types including innovative formant, vowel and waterbed models. A further section provides an arsenal of “Dissonance Effects” that contribute to the sonic footprint of the instrument. RAZOR also integrates a 34-band vocoder that can also be used to process external audio signals of any type.
The user interface of RAZOR builds on familiar concepts of subtractive synthesizers. RAZOR also includes a library of 350 presets, with a focus on “cutting-edge electronic sound aesthetics”.
Details on Razor are available at the NI site.
