Sound Libraries for HALion 5 on patchpool

Post by Simon Stockhausen » Fri Jan 31, 2014 2:39 pm

Hi all,

I just wanted to share with you, that I released my first sound- and sample library Sonic Cinema for HALion 5 today on my website patchpool. Please find more info about this library on the product page.

Image

Two hours of audio demos can be found here:
http://soundcloud.com/sampleconstruct/s ... xperiments

On my youtube channel there are about 20 HALion 5-videos demonstrating patches from Sonic Cinema. These videos are also embedded on the product page.

Thank's for reading

Simon Stockhausen

i've bought the symponic vst instrument for padshop from patchpool and this is really great stuff.
I would want this package too, but it is only halion 5. Is there a way to make it compatible with Halion Sonic 2? (full version)
(Halion Sonic 2 has more or less the same the same structure as Halion 5 but without the sampler engine)

kind regards,
R.

Unfortunately only Steinberg can release sounds for HS2, there is currently no access for 3rd party devs like me.

No news really, I'll wait what the next HALion update brings on the table and then release more libraries for it.
Instead I just released Ambient Strings for MachFive 3, which uses quite a lot of scripting, building my own interfaces and embedding a snapshot system in the scripted patches.

And you're quoting me 10 months later, that's what I call a lag :)

Did you hear any news regarding the next update of Halion? It was so silence about it for quite some time that I'm afraid it won't happen anytime soon...... if ever. :roll:

Even if I knew something specific, I couldn't write about it here, but sure, HALion is one of their flagships which got a massive overhaul with version 5 and there will be more updates and improvements in the future.

Thank's for the nice feedback! Maybe I should bundle this library with HD video cams and apps like Final Cut :D

Re: Sound Libraries for HALion 5 on patchpool

Post by Simon Stockhausen » Tue Mar 31, 2015 2:14 am

Rather than creating a new thread, I changed the thread title and will mention all my HALion-libraries in the current on.

----

I just released my second library for the one and only HALion 5:

Image

Aureus Ventus - Golden Wind - is a unique library for HALion 5 which combines flute with all sorts of achromatic and chromatic percussion instruments like Hang percussion, various chimes (also glass chimes), glockenspiel, gongs, crotales, bells, singing bowls, some deep drums, break drums (steel break discs) and more.

The flute sounds for this library are created by using a special playing technique named Pars-Pro-Toto, invented by german flutist Andreas Mazur who also performed the samples used in Aureus Ventus. He found a method to create beautiful and expressive flute sounds by playing on the single parts of a conventional flute using special fingerings and embouchure techniques. This yields sounds somewhere in between a shakuhachi, an okarina, a viola and a voice, hard to describe in words really…

Multi-sampled bass flute instruments, some vocal and string sounds and temposynced percussion loops are also included in this library.

In addition to the above a wealth of electronic derivatives create a counterpoint to the acoustic sound worlds. Tonal soundscapes, ethereal tinkles, warm and ominous drones, minimal sequences, lush pads and other fascinating textures created with programs like Kaleidoscope, crusherX, Metasynth, GRM Tools, Serum and Zynaptiq’s Morph are layered with the acoustic sounds to create expressive instruments.

Many of the patches make use of HALion’s exceptional granular engine, it’s deep sample player and the synth engine, often layering or splitting different synthesis forms in one patch with key- switchable articulations or sound-combinations and round robin alternations.

All of the 108 patches have the 8 Quick Controls and the Modulation Wheel assigned, many also use Aftertouch and/or HALion’s Sphere-modulator, some make use of the Flex Phraser and Trigger Pads.

You can view/download the PDF for Aureus Ventus with more details, the licence agreement and a patch list including playing tips and detailed descriptions for each patch here.

Aureus Ventus is distributed as a HALion vstsound-archive for the sample content and tagged vst-presets.

Specifications:
  • *108 patches
    *3.99 GB of original samples
    *Delivery: download
    *Price (paypal): € 68 EUR
    •All acoustic instrument-samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R at 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic and a stereo set of KM 184 for L-R, in some scenarios a Shure KSM 141 substituted the U87 and sometimes 4 mics were used simultaneously.
    *All microphone signals are phase-aligned
Please note: the full version of HALion 5 is required to play the patches from this library.

More info and pictures of some of the sampled instruments can be found on the product page.

----

All demos were produced entirely with HALion5 using only patches from Aureus Ventus, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of HALion were used in a track. More audio demos are coming soon...

New demo: two new patches from this library in one dark ambient march, both are split patches, that's why you hear so many sounds from only 2 presets.

http://soundcloud.com/sampleconstruct/p ... r-halion-5

On Sunday I had another great recording session with the flute player Andreas Mazur, this playing technique he invented (Pars-pro-Toto) really produces some totally beautiful and amazing flute sounds I've never heard before. I will start cutting/editing the new samples tomorrow and patchify them asap. Stay tuned...
