This in-depth series from Native Instruments master Laurence Holcombe of Rebel Sonix will show you all the features and functions of the virtual synth bombshell called RAZOR, as well as some sound design ideas to get you going on your way.
Laurence starts at the top, explaining what RAZOR is and all about Additive Synthesis which is what powers RAZOR's sound engine. You'll then learn all about RAZOR's interface, signal flow, voicing parameters, oscillators and filter types.
Effects are next on the list and Laurence reveals them all, such as Dissonance effects, Stereo effects and Dynamics and Specrtral Clip effects. Diving deeper, you'll discover Safe Bass, Modulation, RAZOR's awesome Vocoder and cool Graphical Display.
Laurence then gives you lessons in sound design using RAZOR that will bestow new ideas and direction for creating your own personal powerhouse patches.
Native Instruments RAZOR is a unique virtual synth that can be difficult to understand at first, but with Laurence's tutorials, your synths will be cutting through mixes like a razor... Get "RAZOR Explained" today.

Good course helpful to learn basic synthesis!
This course showcases every component of the plugin, the accent of the narrator is a little funky but perfectly understandable. My only gripe (and that is why I only gave this 4 stars) is that the plugin itself lacks a few very basic things that a soft synth should have (like LFO to envelope modulation or oscillator detuning) and unless you know what you are doing you won't know since he doesn't mention it. Overall this is a pretty good and helpful tutorial.
