You can hear the filter zipper noise at 7:48 of the video above.
I remember noticing it while I was doing it and I didn't believe it was what I thought it was but I guess it is.

Zipper noise? You mean stepping?

Some of the parameters in their products have a zipper noise while adjusting. Even in Punch 3. I reported this a few times, but It hasn't been changed.

Predator reminds me of the old 8 Bit sound sample quality of my old Amiga tracker sample collection. Lo-fi and glassy.

Because of the technical issues I see with their UIs I suspect that there's also such problems with their sound engines. I don't know this for sure, but what you say confirms that hunch.

Great upgrade for Predator :tu: I like it more than Predator 2 but I still like the GUI of Predator 1 more!

I haven't tested the sound yet, but I expect it to be fantastic as I love BIT, so I expect Predator 3 to be one of my go to synths that I first insert (besides Zebra and Pigments).

However, the VST3 still has a problem in Cubase with Windows 150% scaling! There is a white big margin that I can't resize to get rid of! I already reported that with Explorer 6, but Jon didn't fix it yet. I hope it will be soon. Here is a screenshot with Predator VST3 with 133% and in the background VST2 (works fine) with 200%:

Does it remain that way after you shut down Cubase and then reopen it then load P3?

I won't say this update seems rushed but it doesn't feel thoroughly tested either. :?

Wow, it almost begs the question did Rob have any beta testers? It seems like someone would have caught this. :?

To be fair, the Windows scaling is messy with every host! 200% of the size of Predator 3 is not the same inside Cubase or Bitwig or Ableton Live!

The VST3 margin thing is the same inside Bitwig and Cubase, but I think Rob doesn't have 4k monitor scaled to 150% for example, or he would notice it! So, yeah, they need more beta testers.

Anyway, Rob is not lazy person as I noticed, so when he see a bug, you see it fixed the next time he is showing the plugin in the video, so I hope all will be fixed soon :)

Oh yes I have nothing but the highest respect for Rob and Jon. I'm sure they'll work on a fix. I didn't install the VST3 version so can't try here.

It seems like they would be working with higher end systems 4K etc but even on 1080p their GUI sizes are odd.

I wish Rob had a forum because I don't like interacting on Facebook or Twitter etc.

You can write to their support. Jon is responsive and he is answering the technical questions. They are both friendly and responsive :)

Personally, I like most of their plugins and I like how they sound and look. The pricing is very reasonable and fair when you have a plugin or more and upgrade to the full bundle.

Yes I've had contact with them through support several times over the years and they've always been super responsive and nice.

I just prefer forum interaction with developers.
