Native Instrument’s Pro-53 was one of the first software synthesizers that I got my hands on, and to this day it has a special place in my synth arsenal. While it’s obviously good for creating retro 80’s strings, basses, and leads; the architecture also lends itself for creating some pretty wild and unique timbres.
Unfortunately the Pro-53 was discontinued a few years ago, but if you’re lucky enough to own a copy of it, I’ve created a bank of some of my favorite home-made presets as a free download.
You can check out some examples of the patches in the Soundcloud player below. It’s 100% Pro-53, with no other audio effects or processing used in their creation. Enjoy!
