Native Instruments Pro53 v3.0.5 Update MacOSX
The PRO-53 carries on the tradition from the legendary days of vintage cult
synthesizers. This virtual instrument, fashioned after the Sequential Circuits™
Prophet™-5, provides the sonic properties of the unique originals while meeting
the practical requirements of the present day.

Inspired by the immortal sound of the synthesizer giants of the
eighties, Native Instruments created the PRO-53 to cast in software
those qualities that have been such a major influence on popular music
in the past twenty years: brilliance, power, warmth and beauty.
Through Native Instruments' creative development philosophy, these
timeless aesthetics have now reached the next step in their evolution.
The result is the manifest re-definition of an original that was
regarded as unrivalled until now. 

PRO-53 - The New Version

With the PRO-53, the third generation of the virtual analog classic is
now available. The synthesizer emulation has been vastly improved by a
new oscillator technology that offers an even warmer and more
brilliant sound. In addition the sonic possibilities have been
expanded even further with new features like a high-pass filter mode
and an invertible filter envelope. The control surface was also
reworked and now shines in a whole new light. 

Using Native Instruments' highly advanced NSP-Technology (Native
Signal Processing) it is possible to generate a software synthesizer
that rivals its legendary hardware predecessors. The Native
Instruments PRO-53 sets new standards without denying its origins. 
What's new: no fixed limit to the number of voices, many more savable
preset slots, velocity sensitivity, MIDI automation of all available
parameters, an additional effects section, a high-pass filter mode,
invertible filter envelope, audio input, LFO-envelope retrigger, and
the option to run several PRO-53s in parallel.

The PRO-53 is able to import Prophet-5 SysEx sound data, which means
it can read and accurately reproduce all the existing sound libraries
made for the original. The subtle deviations from perfect behaviour,
which are typical of analog circuits and crucial to the sound, can now
be fine-tuned. 

The huge sound library gives the PRO-53 plenty of material for all
kinds of musical styles: 512 selected classic and modern analog sounds
cover any possibility. 
64 of these sounds have already been programmed for the previous
version by synthesizer legend John Bowen, one of the creators of the
Prophet-5 synthesizer. In addition, PRO-53 comes with 64 new sound
presets, which were specially designed to take advantage of PRO-53's
new features. 

512 preset memory slots are available where you can store your own
sound creations. The PRO-53 displays a name for each of the presets,
unlike the original which only displayed the preset number. 

Effects 
A built-in effects unit adds multi-echo and ultra-fat chorus and
flanging effects. This makes the sound of the PRO-53 'complete' for
both live performance and studio production. The included preset
sounds make extensive use of the effects. The PRO-53 also has an audio
input for processing external audio signals through its filters and
effects. 

Integration 
The Native Instruments PRO-53 integrates perfectly into any computer
based virtual studio by supporting the interfaces VST, Audio Units,
DXi and RTAS. It can be used as a sequencer plug-in or as a
stand-alone synthesizer. It is possible to run several PRO-53 plug-in
instances in parallel. 

Top Features:

* Authenthic emulation of the legendary Prophet-5 analog synthesizer
* 576 selected classic and modern analog sounds included 
* 2 oscillators per voice, choice of pulse, triangle and saw-tooth 
waveforms 
* Oscillator detune and synchronization
