Hi Marcus, any word on when approximately the next Halion release will be, so we can all look forward to it?

Layer Alternate - maybe add the option to delete layers there just by pressing the Del or Backspace.

Same question here. We love this tool. But we need to know where we need to broke our bank accounts :D

Yes, maybe simple mouse drag and drop of multiple layers in and out would be awesome, as the rearrangement of the layers work by mouse as well.

MediaBay Filter: presets/multis by content type: Sample, Synth or Mixed

Sometimes I'd like to work exclusively just sample-based instruments. Would be great to filter out all presets / multis that use samples exclusively (Sample). Or presets that use just the synth Engine (Synth) or both (Mixed).

If not already mentioned I'd like to see some more editing features
in the sample editor. Like normalizing, dc-offset-removal and so on.

But even more important to me is a clear and easy way to export programs
comparable to NI's monolith. Right now you have to export it as a multi, then
export the vstpreset. And the import is even more anoying.

Plus I want to have a tuner. Is there already a tuner "effect" in the mixer?

+1, great idea. I am all for better cataloging and organization. Makes tracking down the type of sound you want, all that much quicker and easier.

+1 for this.

Please SB developers, consider to re-check the whole shortcut configuration of HALion, as several functions are not shortcut assignable yet.

Sigh.....I need it badly... please SB implement this... this alone would improve usability to another level.

Bacizone wrote:Slot-level editing

implement a simple "right click > copy" then "right click > paste" (or simple icons for these) where all module settings (e.g. all envelope and / or filter settings, depending on the selected modules) could be copy / pasted between Programs.
Sure, I do know that module presets can be saved, however this would be
- much faster to select and copy/paste multiple module settings in one go
- and user not necessarily want to save each parameter set as a preset.

Visual editor for sound morphing

Dynamic relationships between certain parameters and modulate several parameters with a knob is already possible with QuickControls, as far as I remember.

What I miss:
StepMod / LFO / Envelopes curves may control a grouped parameters of a sounds along their curve(s) to evolve sound over time.

E.g. to control filter cutoff + resonance + pitch + lfo speed by a user envelope or a slow lfo over time, with the desired amount and direction. Yes, it is possible with ModMatrix, but this is not very easy to follow visually with multiple parameters assigned. Maybe a visual module would inspire users to accomplish these.

This setting should be the part of a program, and would enable more "living" instrument where the change of parameter is controlled in a better way over time.

If you implement this feature below, please make it possible to create adjustable "horizontal" crossfades between triggered samples.

Bacizone wrote:+1 feature: Parallel Legato Sample Triggering

A special thing, it is implemented and called as "Legato Clip Launching" in Ableton Live 8.

This is from Live manual: "Suppose you have gathered, in one track, a number of looping clips, and you now want to toggle among them without losing the sync. When a clip in Legato Mode is launched, it takes over the play position from whatever clip was played in that track before. Hence, you can toggle clips at any moment and rate without ever losing the sync."

Would be an awesome addition to HALion 5, using MIDI keyboard to trigger notes in this legato fashion.

We are currently working on Updates for the HALion 4.5.

It's been 6 and a half months since this statement. I don't want to sound negative but I'm not impressed with the updates or added features, so far.

I would therefor like to see an addition to the oscillator section of Halion 4 and Retrologue where you can choose to retrigger the oscillator waveform. In Omnisphere you can get this behaviour by tweaking the nob called Analog and using the slider called Symetry, both found in the Oscillator section of Omnisphere.

Hope the above makes sense to at least a few people. I'm not sure I got all the technical facts correct 8-)



retrologue is a nice synth.Hope they add this feature too!

NAMM is coming up shortly, I hope something is to be announced then. I am sure if the update is big enough, it will have to be payed for.

Performance tool for note-on triggering

Performance tool - moving of the Sphere and Quick Controls could be recorded over time (e.g. 2 min max) and should be editable / re-fineable in a separate window, similarly to automation curves.
Every time I play a note, this should trigger these live automatons - this would extremely increase the expression of instrument!

SB, you should check out these similar concepts that would be awesome this for HALion:
- Arturia Minimoog and their Sound Map concept for easy preset creation: http://youtu.be/xZPM2NXYhrU?t=3m57s
- Rob Papen's new synth "Blade" preset-based automation, synced to tempo or looped: http://youtu.be/AHxhhgWXCdk?t=3m36s

Regarding NAMM: I wouldn't keep my fingers crossed.. the industry relies less and less an trade shows..but who knows...

Well...a lot of really intresting wished features have already been proposed...

here are mine in no particular orders:

1. Beef that library with up-to-date sounds...or at least more electronic percussion and modern content. Even if i like build my own patches ...I find there lacks interesting sounds to start with...or to get some inspiration.
When you see what's on the market today....there is something missing in halion....
2. Ability to tweak our own flexphrases and export them (drag and drop). (the fact we can import chords from chords track into trigger pad is pretty cool though)
3. possibility to quick link everything from everywhere. Or at least more than now.
4. More effects...more esoterism please. More sound design. Or ideally vst fx support " à la maschine" where we could quick link the vst effects parameters.
5. Import from a way or another PADSHOP technology into halion....we need granular....can't even think about the beast it would become if it has this ability....$
6. previewing patch...and all the items related to that matter.

Nearly two years after the release of HALIon 4 - is this time for HALion 5 ... or just HALion 4.6?

Following the new SB 2 years main version development cycle, H5 should arrive soon. :D

My wishlist---

1. Slicing within Halion

2. Fades for slices

3. More comprehensive sample editing

4. Recording directly into Halion

5. Assignable midi commands, such as start and end points, slice navigation etc-- like working on Maschine
