Layering samples

Post by schampout »

Hi all was thinking of getting Halion 5 but want to know if it can layer samples and play them all back at same time like the ensoniq eps 16 + keyboard and add different effects to each sample and then record as one sample hope that makes sense as I'm bit new to this

Yes you can layer samples. You can't add effects to samples directly, but you can to layers.

In a program, each sample is contained in what's called a "zone" and can be placed in its own layer (a layer can contain multiple zones). You can then assign an output bus to each layer. This output bus can then be assigned insert effects or routed to send effects.

Halion doesn't do recording so you'll have to render or record the final result in your DAW and drag&drop it to an open program in Halion.
