Rob Papen's Predator 2 plug-in is a go-to virtual synth that mends practical design with a diverse set of unbounded modules for creative use in every audio production set-up. Predator 2 comes as the successor model with a beautiful new faceplate design that only helps to accentuate the number of upgrades the company has made to expand the synths' versatility.
Suitable for experts and beginners alike, the synth offers a fully featured control screen for tweaking sound parameters, which can then be simplified down using the "Easy Page" option to strip back the controls to the most essential. Packaged with over 6,000 preset sounds, Predator 2 supplies an environment excellent for finding and crafting any desired sound.
In the most recent update, Rob Papen has improved the synth's workflow by adjusting its layout to better accommodate the effect and preset sections of the device, going further to add a designated preset manager page for improved organization. The update also bolstered up Predator's oscillators, filters, effects, internal sequencing, and modulation capabilities. More specifically, all three oscillators now feature dual wave mixing and morphing, along with added user-edibility for any selected wave table.
Predator 2 comes bundled with the PredatorFX plug-in, which is a dedicated audio effect utility for Predators numerous high-quality effects, which allows users to make use of these features beyond only the internal engine. This is great for when users require more control and consistent sound throughout a mix.
