Combine Oscillators and FX in Razor
All of the Razor effects sound great on their own, but some might sound even better in combination with specific oscillators. This week I share two useful combinations of oscillators and effects.
The first awesome combination is made by using the Hoover oscillator and the Chorus effect. With these two modules you can make some sick Drum and Bass Hoover sounds or great ambient droning basses when you use a bit more of a low-pass filter.
Without the Chorus the Hoover oscillator will sound similar to a pulse width oscillator, so basically a square wave with a variable ratio between the low and high levels of the wave.
With the pulse width at 50% you have a perfect square, but with other settings you are changing the “duty cycle” of the wave. If you want to know more about that check the link at the bottom!
The second cool combination is using the Semitone Spacing effect and one of the Pitch-bend oscillators.
The main function of the semitone spacing module is to create space between the different partials in the sound.
You can divide all partials in perfect semitones or even octaves.
This sounds very cool on its own but it can also be handy to smooth out “pitchy” oscillators.
You can make the pitch drift less extreme and keep it inside a predefined area to gain greater control over your sound.
Another example would be to use it on the pitched noise module, also a very cool combination!
