Improvising live on video with the patch Holy Poly from Cornucopia.

Patch description:
Three layered sequencer WT synths with different time signatures, MW adds tempo-synced random filter modulation. Each oscillator has Macros installed for volume, octave, detune, formant shift and pan position, the filter envelope in each zone creates the main rhythm and also modulates WT index position and formant shift. The 4/4-sequence in WT synth 3 also has a volume control for the sub-oscillator. Bypass switches let you switch of the individual pitch sequences. FX Macros and switches for delay/convolution reverb/Maximizer are installed, QC1 adds pan-modulation per note with different panning speeds per sequence.

More Drama -> five instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia - some Macro/modwheel and volume automation in a few of the patches - 100% Halion 6.

Two instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia (Ambient SineQuencer -> two layered analog synth sequences/Eso Sizzle Pad -> multi-sampled processed bowed psaltery in granular mode), - some Macro and modulation wheel action.

Here comes audio demo no. 22 for this sound library:
Six instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia - some Macro and modulation wheel action in a few of the instruments. After some serious health problems including a surreal vacation in hospital I'm now sort of back on track, all patches are ready, I'm just finishing the tagging and completing the patchlist/PDF, then I'll have to wait until Steinberg releases the Halion 6 update and then Cornucopia will be released as well. Can't be long now...

Building the library/vstsoundcountainer today went all smooth, installing it with the new Library Manager which was released with HALion 6 on two different computers was so easy, just double click on the vstsoundcontainer with the Library Manager open to register the library -> done. Steinberg certainly improved the entire procedure of installing 3rd party libraries by 1000 milestones. So all I can do now is to wait for Steinberg to release the HALion 6 update 6.0.1

So I changed my plans and just released this library, as the release of the maintenance update of HALion 6 still needs some more time and I want to get this out of the door, please read the specifications-section below.

Cornucopia for HALion 6 provides a wealth of predominantly wavetable-based patches, all wavetables were be produced exclusively for this sound library by re-synthesizing dozens of samples from various acoustic instruments (string instruments, woodwinds, brass), vocals, percussion and electronic textures.
The sounds focus on warm and moving pads, dark and epic drones, digital hybrids, animated sequences, profound bass and pluck sounds, cinematic textures and soundscapes, crispy mallets and obscure sound effects. Some patches also layer the wavetable synth with Halion's granular and/or sampling engine, some patches also make use of Halion's analog synth, a few patches only use the granular and/or sampling oscillators. All presets have a designed Macro interface with a background image, more complex modulation routings are sometimes also assigned to the eight Quick Controls at the bottom of the main interface and the modulation wheel, quite a few presets also make use of aftertouch.

The wav-samples in Cornucopia are a mixture of field recordings, soprano sax tones and phrases, a huge gong recorded open air in a garden, tubular chimes (also recorded in that garden), electronic soundscapes, multi-sampled synth sounds and experimental electronic textures. All wavetables are embedded in the preset files, yet an additional folder with all wavetables used in Cornucopia (plus some extra ones) is included in the download folder, so that the user can easily create new patches using these tables.

You can view/download the PDF for this soundlibrary including the license agreement, more relevant info and a detalled patchlist here.

Specifications:
  • *103 tagged presets
    *155 wavetables (153.1 MB, also available in a separate folder for easy access).
    *769.9 MB of original samples (67 wavs / 48 Khz / 24 Bit / stereo)
    *Library size in total (with all assets): 1.03 GB
    *Delivery: download (compressed RAR-archive, download size: 768.5 MB).
    *Price: € 42 EUR.
    *The full version of HALion 6 is required to play the patches from this library.
    *Please note: With the current release version of HALion 6, all tempo-synced envelopes programmed for this library play out of sync with the DAW and other HALion modulators (step modulator/LFOs). This is a known issue and will be fixed with the first maintenance update of HALion (version 6.0.1), to be released very soon.
Product page.

All demos were produced entirely with HALion 6 using only patches from Cornucopia, 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.

Here is a Youtube playlist with video demos for this library and other wavetable experiments which led to the creation of this sound libray. There is also a tutorial for the wavetable synth towards the bottom of the list.

Thanks for reading.

Now that the HALion 6 update 6.0.1 has been released, all tempo-synced modulations in Cornucopia finally play in sync with the DAW and internally. Also the Library Manager was updated, double clicking on the vstsoundcontainer will now automatically open the manager (also on Windows).

Cornucopia is discounted at the moment in the patchpool summer sale, the more people vote for it, the higher the discount will be. Check it out here: https://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopi ... 3&t=487214
