but again if they remain silent maybe they are planing something under the hood ?
mmmm...speculations are great isn't it ? :geek:

i too just thought of getting HSO 16bit for 100$ that comes with C6, but it indeed looks too old now and not supported so i give it up for now...


The fact that Steinberg is completely mute and has not responded with any feedback on this topic, makes me think they are up to something very interesting. My Guess is they want to surprise, and delight us with HSO2 , but for now it looks like they don't want to spill any beans about it. Which I really don't mind. As long as we see HSO2 this year :D

Well... Unless they have decided not to delight, and excite us with HSO2, then I will be ... :cry:

We shall see what unfolds in the next couple of months.

It makes me wonder what Steinberg is seeing in the virtual drum market that it is so urgent about GA4. I would think the virtual drum world would be more saturated than something like this. Because most of the orchestral libraries out there are horrendously expensive and anyone wanting a cheap solution (besides Philharmonik) is basically out of luck. Looks to be a nice little niche to me.

Also kontakt has no note expration ,so at least cubase users can benefit from hso2 on price and controll.

I should retract my HSO sample statement.

Actually all I had to do was drag and drop the old HSO .hsb files into the Halion Browser.

Now it's just a matter of tagging/cataloguing the sounds. As far as I can see the articulations made the jump.

The velocity mapping is a bit weird, does not run as smooth as HSO, I don't think it would work for performing as notes cut off, legatos aren't smooth.... but the sounds (1000s of them 16 and 32 bit) are there, from here its just a matter of patience in creating the layered orchestral sets I want, and possible redesigning it into VST expression patches.

Hi,

Any hopes we will see HSO-2 soon (24-bit), new, more, and better quality content ?

Would be nice to hear something from Steinberg about this :roll:

Thanks,

With the notation and expression advances, I have no doubt for a proprietary solution coming up.

I am wondering about implementation. Standalone VST, or integrated with HALion?

I'm not too sure how I feel about stuffing every single musical instrument of my life inside the HALion shell. That's what I have against NI. It's nice to feel like you are using a particular program, an individual piece. It's a lot more inspiring than using the exact same control set/GUI black and blue, technical workflow of H5. I do not want to be scientific when writing a little brass section.

Yes... But so far it doesn't exist, and we have no clue if it will ever exist :roll:

I think that the GA4 is more of a product supplement for a more complete package in the "Cubase" market. The way the market have become systemized (iOS, OSX, Windows/RT, Android, etc.), I think people, in general, have become more all-in-one oriented. Therefore I believe Steinberg is preparing a more "complete" line-up for people.

Hi,

Steinberg just announced that HSO is now available as a downloadable product.

Well... After hoping that Steinberg will release HSO2, which so far has not happened, I wonder, is HSO worth buying ?

Your opinions ? and is there any hope that HSO2 will be ever released. or should I just forget about HSO2 ?

Thanks,
Muziksculp

I have a feeling that they will do something, but I don't know whether that will be a Halion soundset, or a standalone.

When things get really quiet, then you get a small release, I always wonder what's going on in the labs ;)

Also, with the relatively small development team, they typically seem to work on each product in turn. Might help to know for those that "can hardly wait for the next update" to this or that product. :)
