NATIVE INSTRUMENTS will be releasing a new version of the PRO, bringing it to version 53. The PRO is a virtual synthesizer designed for musicians and sound engineers. The PRO-53 will be distributed directly from NATIVE INTSRUMENTS and will ship with several new features including expanded MIDI integration and new sound tools. According to NATIVE INSTRUMENTS:

NATIVE INSTRUMENTS announces that from July 1st, 2002, the worldwide distribution of the PRO-52 will be taken over by the companyis own distribution network. So far the PRO-52 has been distributed by the STEINBERG Media Technology AG.

This change becomes even more important as NATIVE INSTRUMENTS has developed a new version of the award winning synthesizer and is proud to announce the coming of the PRO-53!

This major upgrade comes with many new functions and improvements such as new oscillators, the option for inverted filter envelopes, and an additional filter highpass mode. The PRO-53 is now equipped with a MIDI Learn function for fast and convenient integration of hardware MIDI controllers and the option to load controller maps. The PRO-53 also comes with an optimized graphical interface as well as new sounds that take full advantage of the extended functions.
