Rob Papen has released RAW – a new software synthesizer, for Mac & Windows.

“RAW has a focus on ‘distorted’ sounds, so this means that it has a different signal setup, synthesizer-wise,,” notes Papen. “We have two oscillators and a FILTER, but what is new when compared to our other synthesizers is that you have an EQ that can be pre- or post-distortion. After that, there is also a WAVESHAPER and dedicated DISTORTION module with several types of distortion, as well as a LOW FI control. This is new to this synthesizer, and it’s part of the concept that the distortions are on the voice level, so it’s not just a case of a total signal going into the distortions, but rather each voice has its own WAVESHAPER, DISTORTION, and LOW FI — plenty of options to shape the sound here!”
