Hi guys, it’s Andre.

It’s been a while, since I started as volunteer in the Benztown Studios in Stuttgart and I’m still here and learning everything about radio imaging and production from the pros.

Yesterday, Oli showed me some of the new Plugins, we for our production and one of them was Razor by Native Instruments. He played the first sound and it blew me away. The sound were so unbelievable clear and sharp, so I had to do a test session. After spending the whole day playing with Razor (audio coming soon) I knew, this is gonna be one of my favorites.

To all fans of smooth and gentle sounds: sorry, I have to disappoint you, cause Razor is kicking the sound in your face!

Controlling Razor is pretty easy. You have all your parameters and FX in one window and the presets are great to work with. Choose your favorite sound and tweak around the settings (I love using LFOs and Razor’s LFOs rock!).

To all the guys, which aren’t interested in another synthesizer: Razor is more than just a synth.

Razor includes a pretty good Vocoder and there’s a preset for every use – hard, melodic, distorted, airy…

To give you a first impression of Razor’s vocoder, I’ve recorded some examples with vocal samples from Harry Legg, one of our voice talents.

You might expect an extreme price for this piece, but it’s only a few bucks. To all fans of sharp sounds and vocoders with a small budget, take a look at Razor. I guess, I have the perfect Christmas present for myself 🙂

Cheers and have a nice weekend

    Nice! Think I need to get on this. Does it run as a standalone plug or do you need to purchase reakor? I need new instrument but more so vocoder for my le system

  2. […] been a while since Andre fell in love with this sharp additive synthesizer, now it’s cutting its way through radio imaging and never fails to impress with its vocoder. […]
