Native Instruments PRO-52
The Native Instruments Pro 52 has just about everything that I would want out of a virtual synth. It has a nice classic look and feel too it. Not too many bright and eye popping colors. Pretty easy on the eye and the brain. Everything is right in front of you with this synth, meaning you really wont have a problem figuring it out. I am pretty sure there isn’t a manual for this because I actually looked around online a while back trying to find one. Not that I needed it I just wanted to figure a few simple things out and that was when I was a beginner and I have come a long ways since then. It was years ago when I first used this and from time to time I still load it up and mess around with it and some of the sounds actually make it to my final master production and don’t get subbed out for something else.

Installing it was a breeze, never had a single issue with it , no crashed freezes ups or nothing. I have only used this in fl studio and logic on my mac a few years ago. On a pc and a mac it worked great, both of the platforms really worked well and gave this software no compatibility issues once so ever.

I am glad that I still have this installed on my system, though if I ever have to do a master reset on my computer im not too sure I can still load this back up because I don’t have any of the license info anymore. Maybe I can get it from the website, but since its an outdated model now they probably wont have it any more. They have upgraded the Native Instruments Pro 53, made some changers and made it better!

Native Instruments PRO-52
The process of installing the Native Instruments Pro-52 virtual synth was pain free and only took a matter of minutes.  I've also never heard on anyone having any problems getting this to work, so I'm under the impression that it is a pretty stable piece of software.  The interface of the software is really easy to follow as all of the sections are easily located and are labeled clearly.  It has all of the pieces of the puzzle that you would expect from a virtual synth like sections for two oscillators, a mixer, an amplifier, a filter, an LFO, delay, and a variety of other effects and parameters.  While it may take a while to get through everything and really learn everything possible with this software, it is definitely easy enough to operate that you don't need a manual.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I've never had a problem running the Native Instruments Pro-52 either as a stand alone or routed into a sequencer like Logic or Pro Tools.  I run the virtual instrument on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  This does the job fine as I am able to run software without any issues, but only one at a time.  I don't see a reason that you would need to run more than one of these at a time and would suggest only using one at a time unless you have a superior system. 


OVERALL OPINION

While they have since put out the Pro-53, the Native Instruments Pro-52 is still a great virtual instrument.  The presets are awesome and you can pretty much get an endless amount of sounds beyond this because of the vast array of parameters and effects that are available to you.  The price is great as it is less than $100 USD and for this reason is a great buy for anyone looking to add or start their virtual synth collection.  Definitely try out the Pro-52 (or 53) as it is a great virtual synth.

It is true that the installation and use of this software is very easy as all Native products elsewhere.
Cepandant the buttons are too small and it is difficult to know what you do.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Performance is average, the sound gets faster 'click' when playing arrangements or too fast. With a P4, I expected better. The sounds themselves are pretty basic so no reason appears to have this kind of problem.

OVERALL OPINION

Honest, I find that this soft 'sounds' prt or even remotely like a PRO V.
The filters are flat and the sounds sound squeaker squeaker.
Frankly, I am due.
I have a Pro one I used the Prophet V and I do not see how you can say it's a version that mule true Prophet V.
So visually, functionally as well, but no sound.
Now that the updates parat NI notament correct with the help of feedback from users Prophet V sound.
Messieux NI when you make an instrument, compare and buy the original sound.

Native Instruments PRO-52
Installation is the hands down (like all the products that I could install Native!). The use also is easy. I do not know if the manual is sufficient, and for good reason: I did not need to open it! It is an accumulation of synthtiseur typical analog and easy to use when the operation of connate synthtiseurs gender.

Bonus important: there are "maps" that are actually text files to automatically make the relationship between the Controller of Pro-52 synth and external (eg the Nord Lead) or the MIDI Controller external.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

My config: PIII933 with 512 MB of RAM. The software consumes few resources and trs trs appears much as it has never programmed plant.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the Pro52 in recent months. He does what we want: a synthtiseur mulate analogue. I do not put "only" 8 because it is a bit dated in its last opportunity to face virtual instruments (FM7 for example) and it is relatively basic (less than cratif original virtual synth ). That said, an update (free from the pro52) exists and is logically called the Pro53. I have not had a chance to test it but it should bring fresh blood to the Pro-52.
