It won a Sonic State award at NAMM and now it's available. Tracktion says that you can unleash your dark side with Waverazor, which they describe as a futuristic synth, designed by MOK, that gives you the power to splice waveforms into aggressive new sounds. They tell us that the patent-pending oscillator design utilizes a new form of synthesis to produce biting leads, glitched-out basses, cinematic pads and everything in between. Here's the details in their own words...
Futuristic Virtual Synth
Twist and torture every parameter of sound using a central oscilloscope for precise waveform creation. Morph multiple parameters at once using an array of performance controllers. The collection of included presets provides a launchpad into endless sonic exploration.
A New Angle On Synthesis
Waverazor's patent-pending oscillator technology slices familiar waveforms and recombines them to create tormented futuristic sounds. Start with a radical multi-shape waveform, then mangle the sound beyond recognition by tweaking an array of parameters including tuning, level, phase and DC offset per segment.
Mutant AM: Ring Mod On Steroids
Each waveform segment can have different harmonic content, with individual harmonics subject to amplitude modulation at a rate and level determined by the contents of each fraction. Instead of simply modulating the entire waveform on and off like traditional ring mod, the oscillator modulates harmonics to different levels in a sequenced pattern.
Multi-Sync: Even More of a Good Thing
Since each wave cycle is divided into fractional splices, and phase reset is controlled per segment, multiple simultaneous hard sync points can be set up per cycle and even beyond a single cycle. With Multi-Sync engaged, modulating individual wave fractions to different frequencies creates a complex new harmonically rich version of a classic synthesis technique.
Slice It, Dice It, Tweak It, Play It
The Waverazor interface offers a unique approach to sound design, with a central oscilloscope that enables precise waveform creation. Two X/Y performance controllers modulate a combination of slice parameters, while additional knobs and buttons make it possible to morph multiple parameters at once.
Waverazor Design Team
MOK is on a mission to unveil new, never-before-heard sounds. The company was founded by Rob Rampley, Taiho Yamada and Chris Compton--the designers behind acclaimed synthesizers including the Quadrasynth, QS Series, Andromeda, Ion, Micron, Fusion, Venom, BioTek and more.
MOK debuted Waverazor at Winter NAMM 2017 in partnership with Tracktion Corporation. Tracktion's new "Tracktion Presents" initiative provides exclusive global marketing and distribution services for promising audio technology startups.
