Steinberg updates HALion and HALion Sonic

Steinberg HALion 5 / HALion Sonic 2

Steinberg has announced the latest release of its VST sampler and sound creation system, HALion 5, together with the HALion Sonic 2 VST workstation.

Both new software iterations combine creative tools with ease of use and versatility that are novel to the trade.

HALion is renowned for uniting outstanding sampling technology with the very latest in virtual synthesis. Its unprecedented functional depth and equally advanced user interface with access to all sound-shaping parameters turn HALion into an entire sound design package for discerning professionals.

The advantages of HALion Sonic lie with its simplicity and pristine audio quality, making it a true alternative to heavyweight hardware workstations. Each of the 16 instrument slots loads with presets and is routed to one of the 16 stereo outputs. This again can be saved as multi-preset for instant recall. Together with easily created keyboard splits and its dedicated performer mode, HALion Sonic is the perfect tool for studio work and stage performances alike.

“For more than a decade HALion has been considered a premium brand that transcends the typical possibilities of professional audio manipulation,” says Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg. “The latest two releases keep with this tradition. HALion Sonic 2 provides a wealth of first-class sounds, while HALion 5 offers endless inspiration for creating own sounds.”

HALion 5 and HALion Sonic 2 treat users to thousands of synthesized and acoustic sounds, dialed in through eight fantastically new instruments: the sleek virtual analog Trium synthesizer, Auron for granular oscillation, Voltage delivers extra punch, World Instruments and World Percussion, HALiotron, the Model C organ emulation and the B-Box step sequencer for beats and drum patterns.

Both HALion and HALion Sonic now feature nine new effects including VST Amp for superb guitar and bass effect sounds and Auto Filter for seamless sound morphing. Based on Yamaha’s Motif technology, FlexPhraser offers complex arpeggios, now sporting the user phrase editor to create custom patterns and phrases.

In addition, HALion 5 comes with two new sound sources, introducing the granular synthesis engine for creating beautiful sonic textures and the tone-wheel organ simulation with nine organ and percussion drawbars. Also new to HALion is the slicing mode that allows users to adjust audio material to fit any beat or track. Two new MIDI modules feature MIDI Player to load MIDI files that can be edited and triggered remotely. Drum Player is a step sequencer conceived and designed to play drum beats and rhythms.

HALion 5 and HALion Sonic 2 are available for 349 EUR/249 EUR respectively. Prices including German VAT.
