Rob Papen Predator-3 is the successor of a legendary synthesizer. Both versions 1 and 2 have inspired many artists and composers throughout the years and it has made an appearance on countless music tracks! As before, it combines a large library of over 6400 quality presets and cutting-edge features to make this your go-to synth for contemporary music production of any kind.

The user interface has been re-designed so that all essential main controls are visible on screen, making it interactive and incredibly easy to use.

With Predator-3 they have integrated many new features into the Arpeggiator, added Multi Envelopes, added an ‘Audio Follower input’ for Side Chain control, and last but not least it has also received the analog-modeled sound code from B.I.T. which allows an uncompromised audio quality for analog types of sound or hybrid wavetable sounds!

Shipped with a large collection of inspirational Presets, Predator-3 is a unique synthesizer concept that combines user-friendliness and deep sound design features in one amazing product.
