To use Razor as a vocoder, its Sidechain function must be engaged. True or false?
The Dissonance Effects:
randomly change notes out of a selected scale
automatically create various dissonant chords for each note played
strongly detunes the tuning of the two Oscillators (and therefore only works when both Oscillators are on!)
alter the tuning of the partials to each other
The “Snapshot Morphing + Random” area allows you to:
Morph Razor Snapshots with different Reaktor Ensembles (like Monark!)
choose two Snapshots and dynamically Morph between the two while playing
use separate randomizing percentages for the Even and Odd harmonic components
only enter in a percentage value to create morphs one at a time
In the Filter controls, try boosting the ___________ higher for added aggression and whistle.
True or False: Engaging the "3D" button within the Visual Display can significantly increase Razor's load on your CPU and therefore it can be helpful to disengage this feature.
___________ is required to use Razor.
Max 4 Live
Safe Bass is a tool to
ensure that the amplitude of the lower frequencies never hurts your speakers
prevent the Filters from boosting the Bass too much
ensure that Bass patches can be easily found in the Browser
ensure that the low partials are always heard
How is the Reverb Synced different from the other reverb?
The reverb is NOT part of the synthesis engine
The Reverb Synced is a convolution reverb
At note on, the previous note tails are set to null
Which of the following is not available as an Oscillator Type?
Octaves to Saw
Moving the 'Color' control can
shift the tonal qualities of the sound of Razor's Filters
shift the Noise from White Noise to Pink Noise
change the overall look of the Graphical Display area
increase or decrease the amount of higher frequencies
The order of the filters in Razor can freely be switched between series and parallel configurations. True or false?
If you put Razor's 'Phase' control all the way up,
creates a classic phasing effect
it engages 'Free Run' mode, creating a more analog style result
actually locks the phases of all sine waves, creating a very digital effect
Which section of Razor is the only section that is not truly part of the Sine Bank ?
the Dynamic and Shaping Effects section
the Filters section
the Dissonant Effects section
the Osc section
The Duo Saw oscillator simulates two simultaneous sawtooth waveforms. True or false?
Razor's Oscillator section and Filter section both have a 'Formant' mode available. True or false?
Every synthesizer has:
a global voicing section
global Phase and Random controls
Auto Glide mode
The global parameter, 'Quality' should always be set to HIGH. True or False?
How can you load an initialized patch in Razor?
Click on the drop-down menu at the top and choose Best of Razor > INIT
Click on the drop-down menu at the top and choose INIT
You have to create one yourself and save it for easy access
Click on the drop-down menu at the top and choose Errorsmith > INIT
Where is the 'Vowel Crossfader' found?
within the Clipper controls
in the Oscillator section
in the Filter section
within the Chorus controls
The Razor's design is actually built upon:
new wavetable Oscillators with dynamically variable overtone choices
a massive Sine Bank capable of generating up to 320 Partials
modeled version of traditional analog style Oscillators
powerful sawtooth style oscillators specifically rich in overtones
a wavetable synth
a subtractive synth
an additive synth
Which of Razor's sections is good for getting back the volume you could lose with the Spectral Clip?
the Macros section
the Dynamics and Shaping section
the Voicing section
the Safe Bass section
What does depressing the State button on the left-hand side do?
When morphing, it keeps the button states the same allowing just the sliders and knobs to change as you move the slider to the right-hand side
It randomize, all sliders, knobs and buttons
It lets you create crazy hybrids instantly between the two sounds
The same filter types are available for Filter 1 and Filter 2. True o false?
Using the “Save Preset As…” is good because:
it allows you to save your patches individually instead of part of the local copy on your hard drive
it stores the patches in a folder of your choosing
all answers are correct
it allow you to share individual patches with other users
