How powerful of a synth is NI Razor?

Dude, why are you even arguing, what you said and my reply is quoted in the post above. The fact that it's built inside a modular system when you can add to it or change it is a massive advantage, imo.

Razor and Harmor are very good sounding synths. Razor is way easier to program. Harmor goes further.

yeah... there are less menus involved with razor than with most soft synths. I really don't know what you're talking about, Bryan.

1. Does Harmor ever go on sale?
2. Can it operate as a standalone?

It's good enough for The Prodigy and Modeselektor, but not you?

Razor is really versatile. It's not just for dirty bass leads or scifi fx, I use it for super clean sub bass that just cuts thru everything.

i've also been able to get some really good percussion sounds off of it.

Just to bring a dead thread to life. I've had Razor for a little while, and had only scratched the surface because I had falsely assumed the subtractive style interface was a limitation, but after delving into it over the past couple of days have completely changed my mind.

The way the filters, phasers, and reverb work together with the various frequency/pitch shifters for the partials, you can get an enormous range of rich sounds. The fact that the filters, phasers, and reverb are not effects or modifiers applied to a pre-existing sound source, but actually part of the creation of partials makes a big difference. You can actually put a lot of reverb in bass without muddying up the sound, and you can get some seriously fizzy pads.

I've also spent some time with Razor recently, and believe it has myriads of very, very narrow (awesome) sweet spots. So once I started to patch accordingly, going for a "less is more" approach" regarding i.e. modulation, it sort of revealed itself. And it's a pretty amazing synth.

I still love and use Razor quite often. And its still one of my favorite vocoders even though styles have changed.

RAZOR was released in a period when Native Instruments was at its zenith as a very innovative company.

It's one of the best NI ever released IMO.
