“Waverazor’s synthesis approach is very unique in that you can splice almost any combination of multi-shape waveforms, and multiply, degrade, destroy or mutate them with a wide variety of different parameters. The sounds are very organic and interesting. I honestly can say there are some sounds I created with this instrument that I have never heard before.”

“One of the really unique aspects of Waverazor is the ability to create communicative sounds, be it really tactile, tech UI stuff or actually routing an audio input through the synthesiser itself to create a lot more complex soundscapes.”

“All my records start with one thing, and that is Waveform 10. The flawlessness of the audio engine and smooth workflow has been so reliable over the years I have never switched to another DAW…ever! A fan since Tracktion 2, with the top notch sound quality, audio engine, and editing while recording, you will be making complete recordings faster then you can release them. Waveform and Tracktion has brought my wildest dreams to reality, and I will never use anything else for my records…EVER!!!.”

“For the price point and feature set, nothing comes close to Waveform. I was able to get up and running in no time, and was pleasantly surprised with the musical toolset, often overlooked by other DAWs.”

“The new granular oscillator in BioTek 2 adds a lot of variety to an already versatile soft synthesizer. The user sample capability of the granular oscillator makes BioTek 2 a formidable weapon for film, trailer, and TV composition. This combined with the nearly endless modulation options BioTek offered from the start, and being able to use more than one granular oscillator at a time puts its granular synthesis into a completely different league.”

“I’m a total vintage nerd and one of the things I’m always looking out for are VSTs that not only pay tribute to the originals, but also add a little something else to their sound. I’ve been using the RetroMods a lot and I honestly can’t tell these apart from the originals. They even behave similarly almost like they have their own circuits. Everything is laid out very nicely and intuitively in their interfaces so that you can quickly grab a control and sweep up a filter or ramp up some ring mod. The FAT plugin is my favourite, which as you can probably imagine is indeed FAT.”

“When I first came across Waveform I thought it was interesting. After using it for a while, I realized it’s awesome! The workflow is very powerful and intuitive. The audio engine sounds great, it’s very stable and runs smoothly. Plus, being able to create your own shortcuts and macros, is a very friendly way to adapt to the system if you are coming from another DAW.”

Hi Florian, tell us a little about yourself and your musical background

Hi there, I’m Florian Kerezovic – 30 – from Cologne, Germany and I’m a sync licensing composer for all types of media. I started out making music at the age of 15 as a guitarist when my best friend and I started a band in school. It’s funny how I got into the music licensing business by accident and now it’s my main income source.

After moving from my small hometown Warburg to Cologne, I worked for EMI Music and started a new band (Punk/Melodic Hardcore). We were pretty promising, but after a while the band fell apart for several personal reasons.

So I struggled my way through life with various crappy minijobs and kept making music on my own. One day I got a contact from a ‘searching for a band forum’ that got me into the idea of signing my music to music licensing services.

I finally saw my way in making serious money with my music so I started to contact a bunch of these sites and tada – a lot of them were interested in signing my stuff. So I managed to quit my dayjob in 2013, become a freelancer and here I am (:

What inspires you to create and produce music?

It normally flows naturally. I’m loving nature, travelling and seeing new places in general. I listen to a LOT of music, especially new and trendy stuff so I draw a lot of inspiration from there. Going to gigs and concerts is also a big point for me.

I produce with a laptop and a PC running Waveform, but also an iPad running all the latest music creation apps on iOS and yeah that keeps it runnin I guess. With over 1000 songs produced, mixed and mastered – all in Tracktion products (even when produced on iOS, mixing and mastering happens in Waveform).

When did you start using Tracktion products and how do they compliment your workflow?

I started out recording my first band using Adobe Premiere, but it was only a test version I guess and after that I discovered Tracktion 2 which was really growing on me cause it was so intuitive and simple. It just worked. Since then I’m on board. I tried using Cubase, Ableton Live or Pro Tools but it never sparked on me. With Tracktion/Waveform I got everything I need. And since T7 and then Waveform it also looks really nice (:

What’s the number one Tracktion feature or workflow that you couldn’t live without?

I guess it’s more the overall workflow rather than one or two nice features. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts and my friends say it looks like I write a book or something when I’m fully into making some new music haha.

Tell us about some of the projects you’ve been working on recently.

I recently recorded a lot of PopPunk / Rock / Metal. But inbetween these sessions I produced some HipHop, Corporate Pop, Acoustic Pop or Chillout/Lounge and I guess that’s what keeps it fresh. I wouldn’t recommend making only one or two specific genres of music for a long time. The variety keeps it alive!

What else would you like to share with the Tracktion community?

I’m also streaming on Twitch, creating, writing, producing, mixing & mastering live on air – of course with Tracktion products permanently on screen. Many people ask about what software I use and yeah so I tell them about my longtime love Tracktion (:
