Native Instruments' Xpress Keyboards is a new series of software instruments combining the sound of three famous vintage keyboards with ease of use and affordability.

The Xpress Keyboards range includes the B4 Xpress vintage organ, the PRO-53 Xpress virtual analog synthesizer and the FM7 Xpress digital FM synthesizer. Derived from NI's professional software instruments, Xpress Keyboards provide the same sound quality.

B4 Xpress revives the timeless sound of a classic tone-wheel organ, complete with all its details and intricacies and its signature rotary speaker effect.

PRO-53 Xpress recreates one of the most famous analog synthesizers ever, with its warm basslines, shimmering pads, exciting lead sounds and more.

FM7 Xpress delivers the signature FM sounds of '80s synth pop with all their coolness and crystal-clear precision.

All Xpress Keyboards come with presets offering a versatile selection of sounds right from the start. The streamlined interfaces offer control over the most important parameters for each preset -- making dynamic sound variations quick and intuitive.

Xpress Keyboards can be used standalone and as a plug-in via VST or Audio Units, making it an ideal choice for users of entry-level music sequencers.

B4 Xpress, PRO-53 Xpress and FM7 Xpress will be available in May 2004 for $ 49 / 39 Euro each as direct downloads from the NI Online Shop.

Additionally, a bundle with all three Xpress Keyboards will be available for $ 119 / 99 Euro on CD in retail stores and for $ 99 / 79 as a direct download from the NI Online Shop.
