I think I remember him saying that he had other health issues and was needing to go into hospital.
Hope he is OK :)

It was a few months ago when he mentioned it.

Yes, he described his health issue, but he was confident he'd recover.

The Waldorf forums says Razmo last logged in to there 6 weeks ago. Iím now trying to remember what other synths he has.

This Forum here says he was last online on April 19th. That's "only" three weeks... but still a long time for him.

I hope he is doing well...

From Razmo's "Rant" thread of February 10, 2020, reply #1083:

Just to let you know if you wonder why I do not rant so much these days, I am running in and out of hospitals for examinations, scans and bloodsamples. I was diagnosed with rectal cancer on 25th of october last year, and my life has been turned upside down since then.

I just finished 28 rounds of chemotherapy and radiation therapy, and am currently waiting for more blood testing, scans and examinations before surgery early April.

In general I have been lucky... despite an 8cm tumor up there, my immunesystem has kept any metastases from forming anywhere else, and it also took me thru low dose chemo without it even being visible in my bloodsamples..they joked about me having placebo tablets.

Anyone normal in my situation survive 70% of the time they say, and factors personally for me raise that barrier... I am young, do not drink or smoke and my immunesystem is extrodinary... so I am not afraid I will not win this battle, but it will not be without a few scars, and I am sick and tired of not being able to sit in the studio for more than 20min at a time.

The surgery will most likely result in removal of the rectum, and the colon sewn on directly, resulting in an 8week stomia...but I will survive that too.

So if you wonder why I may be a bit quiet from time to time, you now know why

Damn cancer. This is definitely too soon.

Thanks for being a sometimes belligerent, yet always helpful music tech nerd and an exquisite sound designer, who contributed to the discussions on here since the days of the old DSI forum. You and your gear rants will be missed.

That's sad.  I was wondering.   

Well summarized, Paul. 

He was definitely a character, and one of the most active voices around here.   Hope he's in a better place now, with the synth rig of his dreams.

R.I.P. to an absolute rock in the Sequential community. I loved that he was always such a good sport about us teasing him about him "Finalizing" his setup. He was a great dude. Sad to hear of him passing so soon.

Shocking.  He certainly was optimistic to the end.  He was the bug specialist around here and the loss of his knowledge will be felt.  May you rest in peace, Razmo.

... the loss of his knowledge will be felt.

That's actually what led me into "stalking" what happened to him. I had some nice chats per mail outside this forum over the last month or even years. The last ones unanswered until today. Something must have happened. He never forgot to answer. This week I had a little problem and thought "you know, who would know the solution... you finally have to find out what happened to him".

By googling his real name I found the article above. I was not sure at first, because I think his name is very common in Denmark, but in combination with the nickname and the picture beside the text... The picture seems to be pretty old, but I still remember some old profil pictures of him in this forum and so I decided it had to be him. And I wanted you all to know... (or perhaps I hoped that someone would say "jok3r you're an idiot... that's not our Razmo")

I never thought that I could feel so sad for someone that I never met in real life... but yeah... his loss will be felt.
