Steinberg updates HALion Player to v3.2.0.1305

Steinberg HALion Player

Steinberg has released version of their HALion Player (both the Retail and OEM versions).

New Features

  • HALion Player now supports RAMsave, it’s a technology to reduce the load time of Projects and memory consumption of Samples that aren’t used. You can activate RAMsave by hitting the RAMsave button in the left bottom corner.
    • playback your Song from start to end – HALion Player will now go into “scan-mode” and marks internally all Samples used by incoming notes on all Slots
    • hit ok if you song ended – now HALion Player unloads any Samples that weren’t in use by your Song (again for all Slots) If you want to reload all Samples for a Program on a specific Slot, simply choose “Reload” from the Slot menue.
