After all these experiments and tracks, here is an announcement for my upcoming sound library for HALion 6:

Image

Cornucopia for HALion 6 will provide a wealth of predominantly wavetable-based patches, all wavetables will be produced especially for this sound library by re-synthesizing dozens of samples from acoustic instruments 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 obscure sound effects. Some patches will also layer the wavetable synth with Halion's granular and/or sampling engine, all presets have a designed Macro interface with a background image, more complex modulation routings will be assigned to the eight Quick Controls at the bottom of the interface and the modulation wheel, some presets will also use aftertouch.
More details about the re-synthesized sound sources and provided samples wil follow, as the production of this libary progresses.

Specifications:
    *Approximately 100 patches including roundabout 120 wavetables.
    *Approximately 500+ MB of original samples (wav/48 Khz/24 Bit/stereo).
    *ETA: late May.
    *Delivery: download.
    *Price on release: € 40 EUR.
    *Pre-order price: € 32 EUR.
    *The full version of HALion 6 is required to play the patches from this library.

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.

Demo video for a wave-sequencer from Cornucopia, tweaking the assigned Macros and Quick Controls on the fly, modulation wheel for pitch sequencing is automated. Wave-sequencing in the two zones via two step modulators (32 steps), each zone using a different wavetable extracted from speech samples. Synced formant/filter modulation via random LFO, synced amplitude modulation via filter envelopes, synced pitch sequencing via pitch envelope (assigned to modulation wheel), synced pan modulation via another LFO.

Two instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia, some Macro and modulation wheel action in both instances. The bell-like drone sound uses wavetables extracted from a gong accent, the other one a WT extracted from bamboo chimes layered with an analog Halion synth.

Demo for a hybrid patch from Cornucopia, combining a tempo-synced granular soprano sax sequence (sampled in two octaves, the lower one is 8 bars long, the higher 4 bars, synced ramp LFO modulates grain position) with a wavetable synth which uses a tempo-synced wavetable sequence extracted from the sax loop in the lower octave (synced ramp LFO modulates wavetable position). The “Diffuse“-Quick Control randomizes grain position, increases grain length, spreads/randomizes the waveforms in the WT synth and transforms the sound into a beautiful tonal soundscape. Two types of filter modulation can be dialed in, synced amplitude for the sax sequences can be added, MW detunes the grains and the WT synth (unison detune), pitch offset for the granular zones can be dialed in with a QC, +/- 1 octave with the control fully engaged.

Plenty of Macro and modulation wheel automation going on in the demo, Halion rocks!

Improvising with an ambient patch from Cornucopia, some Macro and modwheel action.

Patch description:
Multi-sampled tonal soundscape sampled at 3 pitches (C2 – C3 – C5) layered with a WT synth using a WT extracted from one of the scapes. Each layer has it’s dedicated volume control, 4 granular controls are available for grain speed/grain position control via AT/ grain perforation/grain spread, fast wavetable position modulation can be introduced via QC7. The interface provides more Macros for WT speed, WT flanger mix, phased/delay/reverb FX. MW randomizes grain pitch and increases WT unison detune.

Demo for another wavetable patch from Cornucopia, the wavetable was extracted from an Angkelung tremolo with accel/rit - the available Macros and the modulation wheel are automated (LogicX).

Smooth ambient demo with two instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia, both patches layer granulated soprano sax sounds with wavetable synths - some Macro and modulation wheel action in one instance.

Improvising with a drone patch from Cornucopia, the wavetables used in all three oscillators were extracted from a celtic harp glissando.

Improvising with a hybrid patch from Cornucopia which combines a wavetable synth with a granular oscillator. The WT synth is using a WT extracted from a soprano sax flageolet sample, layered with the granulated version of that sample, an LFO is slowly modulating grain position, grain speed is set to zero.
