Rob Papen Predator 2 is a powerful virtual synthesizer software and the latest edition in the Predator series. Rob Papen Predator 2 builds on the success of the original Predator VST, with new dual oscillators that use two different waves, allowing for more versatile and deep synthesis. The software comes jam-packed with almost 6000 presets to get you inspired and making music straight out of the box. Each preset can now hold up to 8 user waves which can be combined into wave-sets for added control. The envelope and LFO count has been increased from 2 to 4 as well boasting improvements to chord editing, unison mode and preset management.
Blue II is a powerful, user friendly cross fusion virtual instrument synthesizer developed by Rob Papen that is extremely versatile and consists of six oscillator modules allowing a range of wave types creating different styles of sound, 4 FX processors which can be used in unison and each contain 35 individual effects, ten LFOs for modulation, two analogue multimode filters and many more!
Predator + Predator FX
The Rob Papen Predator Synth Virtual Instrument Plugin is a phat-sounding synth that combines inspiring presets and professional features, providing you with a go-to plugin for contemporary music production. The Predator Synth also includes PredatorFX which is a separate plugin that can be used within your host software, providing you with additional creative possibilities. The user interface has been designed to ensure intuitive workflow while also incorporating a range of helpful information about individual functions.
Immortalise your music with the new virtual synth from Rob Papen - born of a synth fanaticism of epic proportions and forged in the darkest depths of a legend's mind, BLADE rises to rid the planet of mundane music. At the heart of BLADE lies the Harmolator, ready to twist and transform your musical mind. An additive synthesis system which, rather than using the system of changing additive partials, uses global controls which capture the essence of additive synth in an intuitive way making the creation of sounds much easier than using other additive synths.
Punch has a unique sound but also a built in sequencer, allowing you, the user, to have multiple patterns at your finger tips. These grooves can be triggered in a live environment to build a song, but are also great for just improvisation and jamming! You can use synthesis to build your own unique sounding drum-kit, but also your own samples can be loaded into Punch to complete your kit. Your sounds can then be crafted using the stunning features, filters and huge synth power we all know from other RP synthesizers.
With presets designed by the legendary Rob Papen and other guest artists, this dedicated bass synth will supply you with huge cone-rattling sounds that will devastate any music track. This software instrument is great for Hip Hop and RnB but can also be used for Dubstep, video game music, film scores and more.
RAW has two oscillators each with an X/Y field, (as included in Blade and BLUE II) to distort the waveform using Phase Distortion. But that's not all, you can also draw two of your own 'waveforms' and use them as LFO waveforms enabling the creation of unique wobble movements that are perfect for for DubStep and other electronic music styles.
Rhythm Guitar Synth
By using the RG on board sequencer it is possible to create classic Rhythm Guitar grooves, but beyond that you can use the synthesizer features and effects to make fresh new edgy guitar grooves. To play the grooves RG is using a keyboard layout of major chords and minor chords, each with two sequence patterns (A or B) option. It is only a matter of hitting a single note in the major keyboard range or minor keyboard range and the groove plays.
RP-Distort is not just a distortion unit, but much more. The distortion unit inside RP-Distort can be combined with an analog modelled filter, compressor and widener unit. These units can be re-ordered, but can also be turned on or off. So in case you only want a great analog modelled filter. RP-Distort can offer this. Or only the unique widener unit which is great for widening a boring mono track.
RP-Delay is a unique delay with a particular focus on some very special features, including brand new FX routing! To explain, the sound reverser can reverse the input, while simultaneously reversing one of the delay lines. The reverse sound can also be triggered via a MIDI keyboard, generating totally new sounds, and sending them into the reverser with its own filter and distortion!
When it comes to pristine, authentic reverb, it’s the algorithm that counts. RP-Verb is the fruit of Rob Papen's decades-long study of reverb and endless hours of exploring, testing, and tweaking by Rob and Jon Ayres. The result is a musical reverb that brings a unique dimension and fullness to your mixes.
RP-AMOD features classic audio modulation FX including Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, Ensemble and Tremelo, however, what makes this plugin different, is that you can also ´tempo-sync´them to your music as well as use two FX simultaneously in various routing configurations.
The RP-EQ is an in-depth equalisation tool including unique elements such as MID/Side equaliser mode and Mono/Stero split filter which is used frequently in modern dance music. The Air section is ideal for adding to the master channel for extra punch in your final mix. And the proven X/y pad provides a dynamic and creative edge.
