NI PRO-53 3.0.3 ships
Native Instruments today released PRO-53 3.0.3, an update to its virtual analog synthesizer. Introducing new Universal Binary support, the new version enables users of Intel-based Macs to utilize the full potential of the faithful emulation of the much-famed analog synthesizer from the 80s. The synthesizer emulator features new new oscillator technology that offers a "warmer and more brilliant sound" as well as a high-pass filter mode and an invertible filter envelope. Registered users of the PRO-53 single version can buy the Mac OS X Universal Binary Update including a new serial number for $30/€25, while KOMPLETE 4 can download the Mac update for free (the new PRO-53 serial number for KOMPLETE 4 can also be requested in the Updates Manager). It requires Mac OS X 10.4.x, a 700MHz G4 CPU or Intel-based Mac and 512MB of RAM.
