Since the debut of HALion in 2001, Steinberg's software audio sampler has repeatedly raised the bar for other virtual samplers. With HALion 3.1, you can load almost every sound library available on the market and use numerous tools to shape and even radically reinvent sounds. A clearly arranged user interface, excellent performance, flexible routing options, and the awesome sound quality of the sample engine and filters â all this makes HALion 3 a top-flight software sampler and a welcome addition to every music production toolbox.
With more than 50 new features, HALion 3.1 offers unprecedented depth and breadth of access, enabling you to work more productively and efficiently than ever before. Figuring prominently among its many innovations are an intuitive new system for sound categorization as well as impressive new insert and send effects.
With the version 3.1 release, HALion now supports the ReWire protocol and therefore readily integrates into all ReWire-enabled host applications such as Pro Tools.
Enhanced Disk Streaming
With the benefit of the all-new Advanced Disk Streaming mode, even better disk streaming performance is assured.
Q controls are macro regulators that you can allocate to almost any HALion parameter. Eight Q controls are available for each program; they can be allocated individually. Many HALion sound libraries, among them the included library, contain predefined Q controls for the given sound's vital parameters.
With the new MIDI Learn mode in HALion 3.1, the various Q controls are quickly and easily assigned to any MIDI controller. With this function, you can now control nearly every parameter in HALion using the controls on external MIDI hardware.
HALion 3.1 is endowed with the novel RAMSave technology. This feature was developed specifically for HALion to make it easier to work with memory-hungry sample programs. If you like working with sophisticated samples of instruments such as drum sets and string sections, you'll love the substantially reduced RAM demand and faster loading times.
Impressive new insert and send effects abound in 3.1. Boasting 27 high-quality effects, the new FX section is ready to rise to every sound-sculpting challenge. Effects may be applied to individual samples, sample groups, or even entire programs. The new routing options let you patch effect signals directly into the host application's VST mixing console.
Halion 3.1 now features a new File Browser with drag-and-drop support, favorites, and sound categorization, as well as database and indexing functions. The impressive collection of Sound Management Tools affords you a clear view of all your audio files. With the intuitive new sound categorization system, finding the right samples and instruments is a piece of cake.
Another hip new feature, Alternate Mode extends HALion with a range of functions that brings more spontaneity and expression to your playing. For example, every note-on command can serve to trigger another sample â a great option for enlivening drums and realistically replicating the action of bowed stringed instruments.
Freshly tidied up, the uncluttered interface of HALion now handles even more intuitively. And with the new improved tool tips providing good advice, even newbies will find working with HALion a breeze. Frequently used settings for envelopes, modulations and effects may be stored as presets. To afford you an even better view, many panels can be opened in a separate window.
Providing support for even more formats, HALion 3 now imports Kurzweil und KONTAKT sounds, as well as Zero-X BeatCreator and Groove Slice BeatQuantizer formats. In the DVD's 3rd Party Demo folder, you'll find a 15-day demo version of the ZeroX BeatQuantizer.
