At the 2017 NAMM Show, Media Overkill (aka MOK) introduced a a new synth, Waverazor, and a new type of synthesis.
Waverazor is described as ‘a futuristic synth that slices waveforms into aggressive new sounds.’ It’s based on a patent-pending oscillator design that slices individual waveforms into up to 16 slices, and then lets you modulate each of the slices individually.
In the video, MOK co-founder Taiho Yamada gives an overview of Waverazor and its new oscillator type, and demonstrates some of the possibilities of the software synth.
Media Overkill was founded by industry veterans Rob Rampley, Taiho Yamada and Chris Compton. The founders have been involved in the creation of synths like the M-Audio Venom, Alesis Andromeda and more.
MOK also has shared this demo of their oscillator design:
Pricing and Availability
Waverazor is still under development and details are still to come at the MOK site. It’s expected to be released March 1st, 2017, priced at US $75.
