Help with discontinued Pro-53 always changing sample rate
I'm hoping someone can help me figure out an issue I have with the discontinued Pro-53 plug in. I still love this synth and use it in stand alone mode for my live set.
I have recently started using an audio interface from ESI Audio, the U86 XT. My Pro 53 plug-in is always setting the interface’s sample rate to 96khz. No matter how many times I select 44.1khz, it automatically switches it back to 96; and not just that plug in, but also the settings in Audio/MIDI preferences (on a 2010 Mac running High Sierra) and Ableton Live 11. When I quit Pro53, then I can set everything back to 44khz where I want it. I tried to ignore it and just keep everything at 96, but ultimately my processor can’t handle it.
Would anyone have any idea why this is happening? I realize I’m using an old unsupported plug in, and that seems to be the problem here, but is it it possible I could just eliminate the 96khz setting full stop? In fact, I only want to keep everything at 44, so there’s really no need for any other setting.
I've been in touch with ESI who make the interface I'm using, and they're just as confused as to why this is happening as I am. I've never had this trouble with other interfaces I've used, and otherwise the interface works fine and sounds great.
Thanks all for any tips!

I can't even get the VST to register, NI ought to update their old stuff to make it work.1
I really wish they would, and don’t think I’m alone here. Or at least NI could develop it as a library for use in Kontakt, like they did with Akoustik Piano, Elektrik Piano and B4.0
Have you tried the plugin in another DAW. I could also be Pro-53-Ableton-U86 XT combination problem...0
Good idea, but I'm using Pro-53 as a stand alone, not in any DAW. And the same problem happens when Pro-53 is opened without any other application open, and conversely, the problem stops after closing Pro-53.
One workaround I figured out is to send the Pro-53 through my laptop's built-in mini jack output. It's not ideal, as the U86 uses 1/4 inch outputs, which has better fidelity than mini jack. But I'm able to set the built-in output to 44.1khz, and consequently the Audio/MIDI settings and Ableton as well.0
And cannot you use it as plugin in Ableton? Or in another DAW, or plugin host.
Also, you might use some virtual cable SW/utility to route sound data from Pro-53 to U86.1
Pro-53 is no longer supported in any DAW, at least not Ableton. So I can only use it a stand alone.
But please, do tell me more about using a ‘virtual cable SW/utility.’ Not sure what that means. I do have Loopaudio installed on my laptop. Is that the same thing?0
And is not it possible use in current DAW using some kind of wrapper. I do not have experience, but I think that there is something that allows to run 32bit VSTs in 64bit DAW, but I may be wrong.
By virtual cable, I meant something like this. Not sure if it would help, but might.
If not exactly this, they make more complicated things.1
It doesn't have to do with 32 vs 64 bit. Pro-53 became unsupported before Live went fully 64 bit.
Thanks so much for your suggestion and for that link. I think Loopback may accomplish the same thing. I'll check it out!0
There is a plugin for Maschine and a Reaktor adaption inspiration by Pro-53 in the user library.0
Oh thanks a lot! Definitely gonna try this. :)0
