At the Dutch Dancefair 2014, DJ Promo (aka producer Sebastian Hoff) and DJ Free-K (aka producer Freek Vergoossen) approached Rob Papen with the idea of a synthesiser that focused more on 'distorted' sounds with an easy to use layout.
Renowned for delivering fresh, cutting edge and musical plugins for producers, Rob Papen invited the DJs to his studio for a brainstorming session resulting in a list of 'must have' features and tools for a brand new synth. Armed with this list and several more brainstorming sessions later, Rob Papen and his development team created a powerful new virtual synth RAW.
RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUEII) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that's not all, you can also draw two of your own 'waveforms' and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique 'wobble' movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.

We forgot to say this in Go2 release so we say it here:
there's a bug in AU version where the plug-in fails to report
to the host its correct name and it appears in plugins list under two names:
RobPapen:Go2 which is correct, and Raw which of course is not.
This is a mess cause if you have both Go2 and Raw installed,
when you load Raw you might get Go2 loaded,
but it also breaks project recall of both uynder some hosts.
We fixed this ourself in our release, pity for legit users!
Mr. Rob, please go and fix this mess ;)
Above notes talk about a bugfix by team hexwars on yesterdays Go2 release,
but that bugfix caused the AU not to validate under LPX and not to receive midi properly.
This means you should avoid paying attention to the above notes,
wait for the Go2 FiXED release which is probably on its way,
and happily live with the mentioned bug just like any paying customer.
Maybe it is better to let developers fix their own bugs :P
