Native Instruments has announced version 1.5 of its Razor additive synthesizer instrument designed for tense basses, bristling leads and shifting, sci-fi soundscapes.
The 1.5 update adds significant new sounds and effects to the cutting edge instrument along with a new macro system for unparalleled integration with MASCHINE 2.0.
With RAZOR 1.5, 12 new modules add increased sonic flavour. Eight different dissonance modules range from frequency modulation to metallic frequency stretching and pitch manipulation. A new multimode filter offers unusual shapes for irregular filtering and adventurous sound design. Two stereo effects, a dynamics effect, and one distortion module also allow for a wealth of sonic possibilities. As the creative engine behind RAZOR, maverick Berlin producer Errorsmith once again leaves his signature, expanding the dynamic and precise RAZOR sound.
RAZOR 1.5 also features seamless integration with the new MASCHINE 2.0 software. A new compact performance view condenses essential preset parameters into a focused window and maps key parameters directly to the eight MASCHINE control knobs. Multiple parameters are easily assignable to each macro control knob offering a wealth of intuitive workflow enhancements. What’s more, over 100 additional presets take full advantage of these macros.
Razor is available to purchase at a 50% discount until December 9th, 2013, priced at $49.50 USD / 49.50 EUR. The update is free for current owners.
