Steinberg has released version 1.5 of HALion Sonic, the VST workstation featuring the latest sampling and synthesis technologies, a world-class library and an intelligent user interface that excels in the studio as well as on stage.
Adding brand-new features, enhanced functionality and performance as well as more sample content to its massive library make HALion Sonic the ideal tool for composers, producers, musicians and sound designers in virtually any production setting. Update 1.5 is now freely available as download from the Steinberg website.
The latest version of HALion Sonic provides 64-bit support for Mac OS X to address additional memory on Mac computers as well as General MIDI support including MIDI program change, preloaded chorus and reverb effect. The sample library was expanded to include 1.2 GB of new brass and woodwind instrument programs, while audio streaming and loading speed were optimized for consistent, smooth performance. Additional effects, such as the 28 legacy effects from HALion 3, as well as four new distortion modes in the filter type section, assignable key commands and improved standalone application are among the many new features and enhancements that HALion Sonic includes in its 1.5 update.
HALion Sonic version 1.5 is now also included as 60-day trial version in Cubase 6 and Cubase Artist 6.
