Still - Predator has over 4000 presets that may compliment a lot of your Albino stuff.
Albino has a trademark sound. The "silk" and "cream" filter styles are quite unique. When I went hunting for an equivalent to my favourite Albino patch "Pad Silk", I haven't yet found an Antidote patch that sounds as similar as some of the Predator patches.
I do agree that Antidote also makes really nice warm, fat pads with great performance in upper registers. It just won't sound like Albino.
