The best of the cult synths with today's functionality.

The PRO-53 software 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 80s, Native Instruments created the PRO-53 to cast in software those qualities that have been such a major influence on popular music 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 unrivaled 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 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 music software 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 behavior, 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 features.

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


A built-in effects unit adds multi-echo as well as 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.


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.
