Predator, the rack extension from Rob Papen we've all been waiting for is in the Prop Shop!!! Now I was lucky enough to beta test this bad boy and I've got to say it is the greatest instrument unleashed upon the Reason Rack since the mighty Thor. What really makes Predator special in my opinion are the Oscillators. Between FM, PM, and Ring Mod functions (Oscs 2 + 3), 128 waveforms (from classic analog waves to spectral and additive), a Sub Oscillator for all three Oscillators, Symmetry control (very very cool) and Pulse Width Modulation for EVERY waveform, the breadth of sound sculpting is remarkable! And there's still the extensive filter section (with 27 filter types, including comb and formant), a modulation matrix, arpeggiator, chord memory, unison, and 25 effects for further patch creation. And say you don't like to roll our own when inspiration calls - 4000 presets are included in Predator with an easy to use patch browser that will help you find the right sound for your track in no time. Now I could go on and on about how much I love this synth, but the greatest thing about the new Propellerhead Rack Extension Store is the ability to try before you buy, so what are you waiting for?
