Media Overkill (aka MOK) has released Waverazor – a software synthesizer that uses a new approach to synthesis – is now available for Mac & Windows.
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.
MOK was founded by Rob Rampley, Taiho Yamada and Chris Compton – who have previously designed synths like the Quadrasynth, QS Series, Andromeda, Ion, Micron, Fusion, Venom, BioTek and more.
Here’s a video guide to getting started with Waverazor:

Waverazor is available now for US $75. A demo version is also available. The company will also be showing the new software synth this week at Superbooth 17 in Berlin.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chris and Rob in another life and not only are they great people, but the product that have turned out is pretty amazing! Best of luck in the crazy synth world.
Waverazor is a monstrous synth! There is a massive amount of tweakability in v.1 and I can’t wait for the parameter editor version. Highly recommended!!
I wish there was basic stuff like choosing the effect, assigning the macro controls, editing the envelope etc. Hopefully all of that’s coming with the full version. To me it’s really weird that it has an arpeggiator (which I will probably never use) but no envelope controls…
But it is capable of a lot and I’ve been getting some good use out of it.
Always disappointing when it’s mac and windies only.
Linux support is coming, per the devs. 🙂
NI Absynth has the same possibility of slicing waveforms and manipulating the resulting slices. A shame that they don’t update that outstanding synth any longer.
I dig NI Absynth, but this is a different beast, altogether. It’s a lot more intuitive to use and sounds warmer/thicker than most of what I’ve done with Absynth.
Check it out, if you get a chance!
