Rob Papen has updated Predator to v1.6.4. It includes sound banks with over 450 new sounds.
A recent visit to the Rob Papen HQ by Headhunterz (a.k.a. Dutch hardstyle DJ/producer Willem Rebergen) — recently ranked 11th in DJ Magazine's annual Top 100 DJs poll — resulted in the dedicated HardStyle BD Basses sound bank and a new distortion effect within Predator 1.6.4.
