Native Instruments today introduced RAZOR, an innovative and highly 
distinctive software synthesizer designed together with forward-
thinking electronic artist Errorsmith. For use in REAKTOR 5 and in
the free REAKTOR PLAYER, RAZOR uses powerful additive synthesis
to create intense and profoundly modern sounds for contemporary
electronic music production.

Berlin-based producer and renowned REAKTOR instrument designer
Errorsmith is dedicated to the "expansion of the sonic horizon through
digital sound synthesis". RAZOR realizes this credo through the additive
synthesis capabilities of the latest REAKTOR 5.5 generation, which were
used to develop a high-resolution synthesis engine with unconventional
sound shaping features and a unique real-time 3D spectrum display. The
pristine and extremely dynamic sonic character of additive synthesis
allows RAZOR to generate a wide and very distinctive array of energetic,
hypermodern sounds, ranging from expressive basses and leads to complex,
futuristic soundscapes.

RAZOR utilizes up to 320 partials for its sophisticated 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
unique "Dissonance Effects" that further contribute to the unmistakable,
charismatic sonic footprint of the instrument. RAZOR even integrates a
high-performance 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, providing especially efficient and intuitive control for
the underlying highly sophisticated synthesis engine. RAZOR also
includes a library of 350 carefully selected presets with a focus on
cutting-edge electronic sound aesthetics, accommodating both
contemporary club music genres like Dubstep and Techno as well as modern
film and game scoring applications.

RAZOR is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for
$79/69 EUR.
