Antidote was removed from Rig 3, it was in Rig 2 though, iirc.
Hey eXode, your patches that comes with RP Quad are fantastic. Do you have more Quad patches to share/sell somewhere?
Thanks. I'm afraid that's all I got. :)

On the note of 3rd party presets. Have you thought of making any sample packs they are aimed at wavetables? I think it would be cool to see a pack of some sounds that are meant for expanse, Europa, grain or any other synths that are to come.

It's an oldie, but a goodie, as they say. Very versatile and it comes with like 3000 presets or something crazy.
I like Predator but that number of presets is a minus for me, not a plus

I'm not anti-presets. I generally prefer to program sounds from the ground up - but there are definitely times when inspiration fails, and it can be great to scroll through a few presets to kick start the creative process again. But when I'm faced with literally thousands to choose from, the experience can be sort of nauseating, like a giant all you can eat buffet. Rob Papen is a serial offender but I kind of feel the same way about those Lectric Panda procedurally generated patches. They're cool and all, but maybe give us a hundred rather than seventeen billion

Odd to complain about being given too much. I'm all in favor of having all seventeen billion. Those who feel overwhelmed by that many can go thru and pick out 100 and save them to a special folder. I'm not even a preset guy. I like to go thru them to see what inspiration comes, but half the fun of making music is designing my own sounds. Presets aren't the most important thing by a long shot, but I wouldn't ask a developer to give me fewer of them. By all means Rob Papen and Lectric Panda, please keep being serial offenders of giving us too many patches. :)

For me there is no such thing as "too many presets". I'd love more synths to have a "select a random preset" button to take me off my sometimes predictable path. I'm happy to fiddle with a few knobs to tweak a preset but most synths are now way too complicated for me to program from scratch. So just gimme a million presets and I'll find something I want within a dozen clicks or so. RP and LP, please carry on with the preset-fest!

I have thought about it, yes. But I have no firm plans at the moment. :|

Quality over quantity sometimes man its better i think having less and having to change stuff you have will make u spend less time on preset surfing and more time on music for m anyway

I would find it very useful! For instance the Xtables in expanse, or a line of wavetables that are similar to the gritty 1-3 in the PH wavetables. I find that some tables need a hard clip mode. Otherwise the table looks very weak and it’s hard to find the right position. This is what makes all of the expanse tables so useful, and why I think it would be popular:) I think everyone likes making their own FM setups so extra tables would be even more handy. Thanks either way! Btw I need to check out your latest refills. Mad props on the older dubstep and antidote packs I love your way of sound design

old but good... one need not delve into the presets if that is how they work... nice starting points for others... same with quad and go2
I like tweaking presets if I find one close to my vision of what is needed in song
