stompboxjon's review"nice sounds and patches"

Native Instruments Razor
Native Instruments came out with Razor a few years ago and immediately I wanted to know what it was about . Mainly because I know Native Instruments repuation for putting out great synths, vst’s and plug ins. So I knew that I had to see what Razor was about. Getting started with it was so simple, I didn’t need to touch the manual and setting it up in my pc was very easy quick and painless. In fact I still have it on the same pc to this day and still gets used a lot and never causes any problems.


It has never crashed, or at least I cant remember it crashing or freezing. It hasn’t caused in problems, the software runs great on in windows XP. My XP machine is rather old and it still runs good. The software by Native Instruments is very stable as most of the plug ins that make are.


I am very happy with razor, Razor gives you a bunch of presets to mess around with and to mold them into your own sound or however you want it. Razor is actually one of the easier VST’s to operate and manipulate that native instruments has put out. Believe me Native Instruments has put out some vst’s that are a hassle to use and to work with, but this isn’t one of those at all. You will love Razor and you will use it often. If you have any problems with it just contact NI and they will take care of it really fast like they did for me after I had a license issue when transferring it to another machine. All I had to do was call them up and tell them that I cant find my codes and registration stuff and they where able to look it up and take care of me really fast. They have great customer service.

Is installation flawless? No problem during installation.

Is general configuration easy? Yes very easy.

Have you experienced any incompatibilities? None.

Is manual clear and sufficient? No need for a manual.


What is the configuration of your computer? PC 3.16GHz Intel Core 2duo 8500, 4GB ram, asus motherboard, hard drive maxtor 500gb 32 MB cache.

Does software work correctly on this configuration? Yes the software works very well in this config, however, significant CPU load with large presets.

Is this software / hardware configuration stable? Yes very stable, stand alone as well as VST.


For how long have you been using it? I use it since it was release, it's a treat.

Did you try many other models before getting this one? For "easy to use" in the same kind are Prism & Spark, both NI products. Those three are heavy stuff, really heavy...

What is the feature you like best? The really good interface, sound, sound and sound, many presets & excellent quality, the epic vocoder, the price.

The minus: It remains in the "easy to use" but it makes sense given its price; importantl CPU load, some presets sounds a little too metallic.

- flawless installation

- Setup is fairly simple if you are used to VST synthesisers

- No incompatibility problem for now.

- Manual : did not open it yet


my pc: i7 quad core 8gb ram 720QM

Razor runs flawlessly on my pc. It is quite cpu hungry though (+ or - depending on presets); can get a bit critical when using other VSTs.


I use it since it was released; I rushed on it right away.

What I like most that are the sounds you can get out of this synth without hours of tweaking .
You do not have 20,000 parameters, just the good ones...

I think I would do that choice over again, even though in the end I do not use it on each project because I own lots of other instruments.
