Razor Vocoder Tips & Tricks
This tutorial is great! It has a bunch of great ideas that you can begin using in your projects right away. The NI Razor vocoder effect is a an amazing tool and one that can instantly change your music in a number of different ways. One of the most effective ways to use this feature is not with vocals or vocal triggers, but with the various instruments in your project. This video does a great job of showing it all off, as well as explaining the necessary routing technique to make it all work. It’s actually a lot easier than most people assume, and can be used in just about any kind of modern music production you can imagine. Let’s take a quick look at how it’s done.
First, you need to have a sound you like running in Razor. This sound will need to have the Vocoder unit loaded in it. Then you need to decide what you’d like to use as a trigger, as this will be run through a sidechain set up. In this example a drum loop is used to trigger the vocoder. Once you have the audio signal in place you need to bring it into Razor via the Sidechain feature. Now when you play your sound while the audio trigger is playing the Razor vocoder kicks into action, drastically changing your sound. Hopefully for the better! The brilliant thing about using the Razor vocoder in this way is that you can choose whether or not the trigger is audible.
