It's an oldie, but a goodie, as they say. Very versatile and it comes with like 3000 presets or something crazy. Definitely one of the best synths in the shop, yeah. Some people don't like it because the knobs are so small, but that's not a problem if you hit Windows key and + button. It's a very solid synth and it sounds great.

I wonder why it was never updated to match Predator 2 VST?

No. Predator 2 was released 2.5 years ago and the RE wasn't updated to match added features (or perhaps it's a mix of v1 and v2 features?):

It won't be. Rob said that the Predator 2 does not fit into the reason rack format. But some features of the Predator 2 are implemented in the Go2 synth - for example osc morphing.

If you’ve already got any RP products then look at the deals in the eXplorer 5 VST bundle. Great value.

BTW, that also includes REs - for example I have Go2 in both formats and that counts as 2 Rob Papen products, making me eligible for Xplorer 5 at EUR199, which looks like a pretty damn great deal :)

Yes, I'd say it's pretty much a must-have if you like RE synths.
It's versatile, and has an enormous preset library as well as a very flexible effects section which you can route any audio into.
Predator RE is also arguably better than the original Predator VST (which you can't buy separately anymore in any case) because it was a updated quite a while after release with a significantly improved reverb algorithm.
I publish ratings of VST and RE instruments on a dedicated YouTube channel here:

I love RP stuff. But if you don't have any synth of them, you would be better off buying Synth Rig. For the price of 2 synths, you get a MASSIVE amount of stuff, and the new rig 3 includes Antidote, Quad, Predator, Spire Re, Nostromo and Expanse. If i was in your shoes, with not many synths, i'd cancel that and wait for some sales. Even without a sales, you get 14 synths for the price of 3!

PS.: I bought Rig 1 at a discount price, so i believe Propellerheads will do some sale with it. Usually sales are in May, August, Black Friday and December (Christmas).

Thx for this, I purchased explorer 5 with crossgrade discount this weekend. Some very nice synths in there. Also, afik some functionality is still missing in RE, such as sample import in punchBD.

Thanks anyway man ( if your talking to me ) i do not want 14 synths id get too diatracted lol πŸ˜‚.
i have reason intro so only have europa thor and subtractor plus samplers and drun machines apart from grain, ( i also have reason drum kits re and the bass refill) i dont really use thor subtractor hardly at all .

Europa i do use but i just wanted one really great synth that i could learn through and through and i think this could be it as im not overly keen on the sound of europa

i would have gone for antidote if it was Β£89 but id rather pay off as i have two kids and both there birthdays are coming up , so no more toys for me apart from paying off for this ,
and then maybe in black friday ill upgrade to reason hopefully for Β£169 or cheaper then ill be compete .
thanks guys for your input πŸ™‚ predator re for me it is πŸ™‚just have to get some vids and learn the shit out of it now πŸ™‚

Antidote was removed from Rig 3, it was in Rig 2 though, iirc.
