HALion 5 and HALion Sonic 2 released

July 22, 2013

Steinberg is happy to offer two major updates to HALion and HALion Sonic. This may or may not be a life changing experience but both releases will certainly get your heart racing, treating you to thousands of synthesized and acoustic sounds.

With HALion 5, you get the latest iteration of our VST sampler and sound creation system that holds all the tools to design your very own sounds. Our premier VST workstation, HALion Sonic 2, provides a ton of quickly accessible sounds perfect for playing live on stage or when sketching up your new track in the studio.

Both HALion and HALion Sonic now feature eight new instruments and nine effects that'll simply blow you away. But HALion 5 has yet more to offer, boasting two new sound sources, slicing mode and two new MIDI modules. Best check it out for yourself:
