Taste Sonic Dimensions:
HALion Sonic SE is a streamlined version of HALion Sonic, Steinberg's premier VST workstation. Incorporating the same pristine audio and synth engine as its award-winning brother, HALion SonicSE offers tight integration with Cubase 6 and more than 900 production-ready sounds and instruments. Intuitive handling, instant playability and VST 3.5 support make this new instrument the perfect choice for creative songwriting or just playing along.
HALion Sonic SE replaces HALion ONE, but all HALion ONE sounds have been refurbished and are now included in HALion Sonic SE — together with brilliant new content.
Equipped with detailed acoustic instruments and brilliant synthesizers, the SE version is an extensive pool of sounds for everyday studio work. HALion Sonic SE supports VST 3.5, being among the first to benefit from the revolutionary VST Expression 2 technology. This includes time-saving tools for composers such as the automatic VST Expression map setup and the Note Expression features. What's more, eight intuitive Quick Controls provide fast access to the most important sound-shaping parameters. And with HALion Sonic SE, Cubase 6 also introduces a MIDI file import mode, making full use of HALion Sonic SE's 16-part multitimbral mode.
The highly evolved LoopMash 2 offers even more cool ways to remix loops and create tons of new fresh variations of your music while giving you total control over the process. Over 20 new MIDI-controllable live and slice-based effects such as scratches, stutters and tape stops will get your beats onto the dancefloors.
LoopMash 2 now sports twice the amount of scenes—a total of 24—to inject more variety into your performances. The scenes can be rearranged using drag-and-drop and renamed by double-clicking on them. With full Undo/Redo support you have now the freedom to try every parameter combination that comes to your mind without worrying about the consequences.
And that's not all, you can drag-and-drop slices from one LoopMash 2 track to another, or even into Groove Agent ONE.
X64 support for Mac:
The native Cubase 64-bit support under Mac OS X 10.6 64-bit increases the addressable amount of RAM from 2 gigabytes to an astonishing 1 terabyte. In plain words, the bigger your memory, the more tracks, plug-ins and samples you can use in Cubase. This also means you can easily use all the compatible libraries available on the market today. That's what 64-bit support is all about.
