Overview

Since its launch in 2001, Steinberg HALion has been pushing back boundaries in virtual samplers. HALion 3 is no exception: over 50 new features ensure that HALion stays where it always has been: at the forefront of digital audio technology. Building on the outstanding surround-capable HALion 2.0 sampling engine with support for up to 32-bit floating point files, Steinberg HALion 3 adds even more capabilities. An output routing system allows you to create and configure the audio outputs; only the outputs you need will be routed directly to the host VST mixer. The sleek user interface is not only easy on the eyes but has been restructured to keep switching between the different Steinberg HALion 3 views to a minimum.

Check out the improvements in Steinberg HALion 3 sampler software:

File browser with drag and drop support, favorites system, sound categorization and database indexing. An impressive set of powerful sound management tools gives you a clear overview over all your sound files. The intuitive sound categories system lets you group related sounds, making it easy to find them quickly!

Dazzling Insert and Send Effects section -- 27 quality effects encompass just about any effect requirement. They can be applied to individual samples, sample groups, or entire programs. Effect sends can be sent to HALion's internal FX section or even directly to the VST mixer to share plug-in resources between the host and HALion.

Steinberg HALion 3 sample software now offers RAMSaveT, a feature created to keep in check the RAM resources needed by even the most extensive sample instruments, resulting in low RAM usage and faster project load and save times, a boon for pro users using large, intricate sampled instruments such as big orchestral patches or large drum kits. Alternate mode adds a range of functions, including playing a different sample with each new Note On message, introducing more spontaneity and feeling, especially useful for realistic drum-sounds or string bow up/down action.

Even more file formats -- Steinberg HALion 3 adds support for Kurzweil and Kontakt sounds as well as for the Zero-X BeatCreator and BeatQuantizer Groove-Slice formats. You can find a 15-day limited Demo version of ZeroX BeatQuantizer in the 3rd party Demo folder on the DVD.

Sleek and clean user interface: HALion 3.1 explains its intuitive GUI with the improved ToolTip Help. Presets let you recall frequently used settings for envelopes, modulations and FX. Many views can be opened in separate windows.
