Beside the easy-to-use Go2 Synthesizer, it comes with a brand new RAW-Kick drum Synthesizer developed in collaboration with DJ Free-K and DJ Promo. It’s based on the RAW Synthesizer and offers three layers for designing a very personal kick sound. Each layer can be either a versatile kick synthesis or a sample-based engine. All three layers can be combined and refined with a wide range of filters and effects.

The eXplorer 5 bundle features also now the super easy-to-use Go2 Synthesizer as well as the new MasterMagic mastering plugin. In total, a very interesting update for this great bundle.

RAW-KICK Overview

RAW-Kick is a product developed in conjunction with DJ Free-K and DJ Promo. Based on the legendary RAW synthesizer, RAW-Kick includes neat features and focus specifically designed for today’s demanding producers!
RAW-Kick offers three individual layers to design and build up your Kick drum sound, which is a common method often used by producers. But now, instead of using three separate products, you can use this method within one product. Each layer offers two modes. You can select a dedicated kick synthesizer model or use a sample-based layer.

The ‘Kick Model’ type offers some new and unique features, for instance the RAW amount. You can also control the harmonics which can have a firm impact on the sound, especially in combination with the many included distortion FX on board. The ‘Sample’ type also has to offer some neat features like a multi-mode analogue modelled filter, two EQ sections and many FX algorithms with several types of distortion and other top-quality FX.

The Master section of RAW-Kick finishes it all off with an additional double EQ section and the MONO/STEREO FX to make your kick tight in its low end and wide in the mid/high range of the spectrum! The Master section also offers you some neat control over all three layers at once, for speeding up your workflow creating the perfect RAW-Kick! RAW-Kick ships with presets from these respected Hardcore, Hardstyle and DnB producers: DJ Promo, Caine, DJ Mad Dog, Ophidian, Sinister Souls, Tha Playah, The Outside Agency and Wavolizer to name a few.
