Homegrown Sounds has launched Awakenings for HALion 5.1, a sound library featuring 100 presets as well as creative templates which use the included 200 multi-sampled instruments as selectable oscillators.

The templates allow selecting the Samples via 2 A & B knobs with a mix control which makes making new Sounds a creative, interactive and very easy process. Lots of work went into making these templates so that they are easy to use and capable sample based synthesizers.

Each included instrument makes use of the 8 quick controls with the aim of making customizable instruments. Whilst the templates load all sampled instruments, the 100 presets use pairs instead so that they are quick to load when browsing, these presets also make good use of the quick controls.

Awakenings for HALion 5.1 features

  • 100 presets using pairs of sampled instruments.
  • 17 Templates which use all included multi-sampled instruments as selectable oscillator types.
  • 3 Synth Templates which use the HALion synth engine only. They contain a predefined set of presets selectable via quick controls.

  • The templates use combinations of sampler, granular and synth engines.
  • Installed size 880 MB (692 MB download).

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29.99 USD until February 20th, 2015 (regular $39.99 USD).
