Native Instruments Pro-53



This synth is NI's attempt at emulation of the good old Sequential Circuits Prophet-5. Now I don't really know how close is 53rd to the real thing - but judging by the sounds you can make with it - it really contains that analogue feel that is now forgotten. Just set it to produce a single waveform without adding anything to it and you will notice that it totally lacks the cold, dead precision of other digital VSTs that only pretend to produce analogue sound - the waveform will never stay the same. Which is as it should be - transistors on the real things never were quite precise.
Whether it is a trance lead that sounds like that metalic Push/Ferry Corsten thing from '99 or a deep, trembling pad of L.S.G. - this synth can do all of them. And you will notice how close Pro-53 is to the old analogue things if you'll go into wobble-wobble sounds with an LFO and some resonance.

The technical side. Pro-53 has two oscillators (with saw and square waveforms for the first one and saw, square and triangle waveforms for the second one), an LFO which can be routed to both of them, two noise generators (one is routed to the LFO and helps produce more otherworldly sounds; the second one is routed to oscillators outputs). Another interesting feature is an on-board delay effect. It is pretty primitive, however what it really is good at doing - is giving your final sound a wide stereo-field (you can also control how wide it is) without actually adding any noticeable delay - which helps when you are working with a panner. I also want to point out the optimization - let's just say that if you will have five of 53s running simultaneously - even older CPU will have no problems handling that.

The interface however has problems. While everything on it can be easily understood - turning knobs with mouse isn't very comfortable and Pro-53 doesn't show you the current "values" of knobs - this means that if you will move the knob somewhere by accident you will have a hard time returning it to the original position. Or any desirable position for that matter.

Still it can be easily forgiven considering everything else. Pro-53 is one of my favourites and takes a special spot in my virtual rack.

Also an obligatory soundsample for you, tranceheads.

FL 8 really is. Sound flow and dynamic range are easily controlled.

Trilogy for bass

Nexus and Atmosphere for strings and analog sound.

Waves bundle for proper mix downs as well as some compression.

Lots and lots of Interesting samples

L3 multimaximizer on the master.

It will sound thick

I agree with a lot of others here. FL8 rocks. It's super-user-friendly and has pretty much all you need. The old versions of FL has some other interesting effects and sounds too, like free filter and some nice T404's.

anyone using Orion Platinum?
i've tried it and it seems nice, but the only bad part is that i'm used to working in the session view in ableton right

I use FL 8. I also tried Ableton, but it seems i can do things a lot faster in FL. I also used Reason, but for electro and RnB tracks.

Anyway, the main thing is that any software is good if you know how to use it properly and if it is not limiting your song ideas.

It's very simple to initialize Sylenth1, just click on the menu button then choose Init Preset happy

I also use Sylenth1 very much - great synth! thumbsup

Very good reverb plugin I always use

P.S. +100 to Ableton. I used Reason , then Cubase but since I started using Ableton I never opened Cubase again! It does the job for me perfectly and it's very easy to use! boobs
