Rob Papen Soundware has announced the launch of Predator2 integrated with three oscillators and a refreshed graphical user interface at $149. Interestingly, the three oscillators are now dual-equipped affairs with WAVE A and WAVE B, which includes a wide range of mixed and morphed waves between them.

Touted to be the successor to Predator, the natural-born paired with killer-sounding soft synth adds musical bite to countless tracks. This is being made possible due to cutting-edge features developed in-house by the popular sound designing company in the world.

On the Easy Page, you will be able to find the most important parameters to tweak a sound. It is possible to make use of the handy preset VARIATIONS function, which is dubbed as an intelligent randomiser.

Predator2 is equipped with three oscillators dual-equipped with WAVE A and WAVE B in addition to a wide range of mixed and morphed waves between them. There are eight editable USER WAVES which can be combined into wave-sets that are traversable in different ways. Moreover, you can edit those USER WAVES up to 256 different partials and advanced controls to edit and shape the wavetables.

The refreshed Predator2 ships with many wavetables and wave-sets, which are the main building blocks of its inspirational sound abilities. To add more punch, all oscillators and filters are stereo compatible. The flexible FILTER section is bolstered by a much-expanded second filter (FILTER 2) section with full controls and envelopes. Moreover, the new release also provides a third high-pass filter (HP FILTER) section for refined fine-tuning.
