Why We Love This Product!

Fat Synth Sounds with SICK Presets!

When you want HUGE-sounding synth sounds, get your hands on Rob Papen's Predator. This is one BEAST of synth madness, putting you in touch with all the synth styles you could possibly want. And there are sweet preset banks to let you jump in the direction you're wanting.... Hip Hop (NY, Club, DirtySouth, etc.), Breakbeat, Trance, DnB, and more. This is your plug-in powerhouse for contemporary music production, no doubt about it. And if you've ever read a review, you know we're not kidding. Another sweet thing that Predator offers is PredatorFX... meaning, you can use the awesome filters, modulations, effects, even the vocoder all as an FX plug-in within your DAW.

And maybe one of Predator's biggest "thumbs up" features is the slick display that's fun and really easy to use. Just about all the controls are visible right there. And if you're ever unsure of what something does, you can right click it and get to the help menu — cool for anyone new to synths. But don't let that fool you into thinking Predator is a "beginner" synth. No way. Synth fiends flock to Predator for one reason... it sounds amazing!!
