Predator 2.0
Predator 2.0 is going to be an awesome update with some breath-taking new features!.
The aim is to release sometime at end of June, but more realistic is that we will have it ready July/August once all the bugs have been squashed.
Predator 2.0 will have a price tag of Euro 149-- | USD 149--
Upgrade price will be Euro 49-- | USD 49--
Note that the original Predator will remain so that you can still use Predator for the older songs.
eXplorer IV
Once Predator 2.0 hits the market, we will also have an eXplorer IV bundle available!
The upgrade price will be Euro 79-- | USD 79--
The upgrade price is higher than upgrading Predator to Predator 2.0, but this will be because RP-VERB 2.0 will be added to the eXplorer bundle later this year.
And maybe even more at a later stage...
Predator RE
Please note that at the current moment it will not be possible for us to have a Predator 2.0 as a Rack Extension due to current limitations within the Propellerhead SDK. We will of course consider Predator 2.0 RE  at a later stage as and when the Reason environment allows us to do so.
But please keep an eye out for other future Rack Extensions developed by Rob Papen and team.

4 Element synthExplorer-III

Book with 4dVD!

Rob has not entirely forsaken his hardware synthesizer heritage, however, as evidenced by the release of last years self-funded, successful subtractive synthesis instructional book/DVD set, The 4 Element Synth, a truly enlightening tome featuring over 200 pages of quality reading material and 10 hours of tutorial content, drawn deep from the creative well of its creator’s unsurpassed knowledge gleaned from so many fruitful years of working with synthesizers, old and new alike.

And if you’d like to follow in Robs footsteps and benefit from his 35-year synth odyssey, then this is definitely the Rob Papen product for you!

Rob made much use of Predator when creating The 4 Element Synth since it's perfect for teaching subtractive synthesis. The used patches can be downloaded  here
