"Predator is indeed the multi-purpose synth Rob Papen intended it to be - as his superb presets ably demonstrate. The flexibility and ‘width' of the oscillators - that huge repository of waveforms - the accuracy and bite of the filters and all that modulation make Predator a true master of all trades - basses - pads - leads - FX - drums... you name it." - Future Music


The Predator virtual synth includes a wide range of innovative features such as Preset Morphing - Intelligent Preset Variation - MIDI and Synth Controllable FX - Unison Detune - Chord Memory and a very flexible Arpeggiator. Also included is PredatorFX which allows the use of the powerful filters - modulations - effects and vocoder as an FX plug-in within your host application.
