Steinberg is excited to announce the release of the premier VST Workstation HALion Sonic, the long-anticipated successor to the highly acclaimed Hypersonic 2, which lets you work more productively than ever before. HALion Sonic excels in the studio as well as on stage, featuring a state-of-the-art sampling and synthesis engine, a world-class library and an intelligent user interface.
Based on Steinberg’s latest sampling and synthesis technology, HALion Sonic is the go-to composition and production instrument, offering the complete range of sound shaping and creative editing features sound designers expect from studio-grade instruments. The exquisite sound engine offers four extremely powerful, yet easy-to-use modes at its core, including a fully editable Virtual Analog Synthesis Engine.
Created by top sound experts at Yamaha and Steinberg, HALion Sonic boasts more than 1,200 first-class instrument sounds suitable for almost any conceivable style — from detailed acoustic instruments to legendary synthesizers, club sounds and soundscapes, from ultra-realistic acoustic drum kits to the latest electronic beats.
But that’s not all: HALion Sonic also reaches a new level in intuitive handling and control. All of its features have been implemented with a focus on usability and that’s why HALion Sonic is just as easy to use on a hectic stage as it is in the creative environment of a studio.
Unique Morphing Filters, innovative sound creation tools like the FlexPhraser, a seamless integration with Cubase 5 including VST Expression support and many other features deliver truly unlimited sonic dimensions.
HALion Sonic is now being shipped to our distributors worldwide* and is also available in the Steinberg Online Shop.
