Native Instruments presents Razor

Native Instruments have released a teaser video for a new soft synth, Razor.
If the 100-second teaser video (below) is anything to go by, NI are taking aim at the burgeoning dubstep production market. All of the decidedly wobbly sounds in the trailer were created using Razor, which is said to include “cutting edge” FX and “unique” filters

“Razor is a synthesizer i developed in collaboration with Native Instruments. It’s programmed in Reaktor, a modular software synthesizer. You don’t need to own Reaktor in order to use it. Razor can be loaded in the free Reaktor Player software.” – razor.errorsmith.de
