New version of the popular synth packed with powerful new controls and presets
DECEMBER 2016: Predator 2.1 update released with new white screen option, extra presets and more. See video below for more details...
Almost a decade ago, the original version of Rob Papen´s Predator virtual synth was released to widespread acclaim from both press and users alike and quickly became industry standard. Over the years, Predator has inspired numerous top producers like Junkie XL, Armin van Buuren, Noisia and Teddy Riley to name but a few and has featured on a variety of artist albums and soundtracks.
Predator 2 continues this legacy and builds on Rob Papen’s original vision but enhances it further with an awesome selection of new features, functionality, and improvements while staying true to the underlying concept of being fun and easy to use. This is achieved by having a user interface designed so that almost all controls can be accessed from a signal screen with no complex edit menus.
KEY NEW FEATURES
Each oscillator is now dual, using two different waves (including the 8 user waves), with a variety of different waves of mixing / morphing between them.
Each preset can hold up to 8 user waves, which can be combined into wave-sets, which can be traversed in different ways.
Each user wave is editable, using up to 256 partials, and with advanced commands to edit and shape these wavetables. Many wave-tables and wave-sets are included.
Each filter and oscillator is now fully stereo.
Expanded second filter, with full controls and envelopes, plus a 3rd high pass filter.

If you’re new to music production and sound design, do not get discouraged, after several minutes you will be able to tame this beast!" - Producer Spot
