Native Instruments Pro-Five

Native Instruments Pro-Five Image

The Pro-Five was a brilliant software-emulator recreating the sounds, the look and the programming methods of a legendary synthesizer - the Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. However, aside from an ultra-clean, crisp and clear new sound the Pro-Five added unlimited polyphony and memory! And for a more authentic Prophet sound you can choose the Analog Warmth mode for a little warmth and noise, or use it in Digital Accuracy mode, either way it sounded great!

Velocity sensitivity, real-time MIDI control and automation of every parameter plus the option to run several Pro-Five's in parallel and all this at a fraction of the cost of the original made this Plug-In a must see, hear and have! The Plug-In shipped with 512 freely programmable preset memories and 512 selected classic analog sounds including 64 new up-to-date sounds by vintage-synth legend John Bowen! Truly a powerful addition to any musicians set-up!

* NOTE: The Pro-Five was succeded by the Native Instruments Pro-52 plug-in. It was a next step in the evolution of the virtual Prophet-5. It added delay, chorus, flange, external audio input, could function as a stand-alone application and reads original Prophet-5 SysEx MIDI messages for loading actual Prophet patches into the virtual plug-in.

The keyboard lag has been eliminated by using ASIO4All audio rather than the Windows or DirectX audio. With ASIO4All, response is immediate and gratifying with all my soft synths in any of my computers. Get it at asio4all.org. Also some sound cards and MIDI interfaces come with their company's proprietary ASIO driver, which may work as well as ASIO4All. Your mileage may vary.

I totally agree with 'gridsleep'; the Pro-53 has got some great patches and groovy noises but it is so slow. My advice? Get both, and use the Pro-53 for great pads, sweeps and drones while the Arturia effort is a better instrument.

I have the Pro-53 installed on my Phenom II 4 core equipped PC, and, while it sounds spectacular, there is over half a second delay between pressing a key on a MIDI keyboard and a sound coming out of they synthesizer. Also the keys don't move to match the keys pressed on a controller. The Arturia Prophet is much more realistically responsive. It's probably why NI dropped the Pro-53. It's just too slow. Sounds very good, though, and the extra sound libraries have some unique sounds in them.
