Tracktion Corporation has introduced MOK’s Waverazor 2.0 Editor version, featuring an innovative Contextual Editing system to give users the ability to easily manage thousands of sound-sculpting parameters.
With these new tools, Tracktion says Waverazor 2.0 is “set to boldly go where no synthesizer has gone before”.
Waverazor’s patent-pending oscillator design provides a “completely novel” sound generation source, making MOK’s Waverazor 2.0 Editor an important announcement in the synth world.
The Contextual Editing system in version 2.0 opens up Waverazor’s capabilities, giving users full access to explore an infinite universe of sound possibilities.
While conventional editing tools are typically underpowered, or involve tedious searches for the right parameters, MOK’s Contextual Editing system promises power and efficiency by allowing the user to focus on their desired sound settings, all conveniently surrounded by directly related parameters.
For instance, when editing an oscillator, you will also see the LFO that gives it vibrato. This makes navigation of the entire synthesizer and crafting intricate connections much easier, enabling musicians to ‘build their own synthesizer’ and quickly develop an individualised sound set.
MOK’s oscillator design allows users to slice up waveforms and recombine them into harmonically rich sounds. Waverazor introduces futuristic synthesis methods like Wave-Slicing, Multi-Sync, and Mutant AM. Explore original techniques such as Multi-Sync where multiple Hard-Sync points can be created within, or beyond, a single cycle. Or dig into Mutant AM and produce an aural tapestry full of complex amplitude modulations derived from the harmonic contents of each wave slice.
“We’re so excited to finally put the full potential of Waverazor into people’s hands,” said Taiho Yamada, Co-Founder of MOK.
“This synth is incredibly deep, and after years of hands-on development, I’m still finding new ways to patch it. We hope everyone has a blast finding sounds they’ve never heard before.”
Waverazor 2.0 Editor is available now from the Tracktion website. For existing customers, this latest version is offered as a free upgrade, and for new customers Waverazor 2.0 Editor retails at $159.
