Native Instruments Pro-53


as a long time user of a Sequential Circuits Six-Trak, i am considering 
buying NI's Pro-53 and making it my main (soft)synth. the demo sounds 
good, and i like that it follows the original philosophy of doing a few 
things and doing them well, as opposed to being a giant toolbox where 
nothing works together intuitively and the whole package is hard to 
grasp at once. for me, when Eno talked about instruments needing "more 
Africa in them" this is what he meant, something that is limited and 
works really well in a coherent, "themed", fashion. my Six-Trak has 
been a great live improv instrument to me for almost twenty years 

so, has anyone had a chance to use the Pro-53 extensively? any 
impressions on its sound, flexibility, stability, etc.? i'm planning on 
using it to improvise over a bed of loops in radiaL.
