Steinberg HALion 6 - Retail Box
Drastically augment your sound design experience with mind-blowing new tools and instruments for modern composers and sound designers
Create the future
Steinberg HALion 6 is the most comprehensive virtual sampling and sound design system available today and excels the present creative process for producers and sound designers in all areas.
It covers the complete creative workflow from recording and sample editing to programming advanced synthesis and modulation setups. With HALion, create customized user interfaces and export ready-to-release instrument libraries with every step streamlined to the greatest extent.
The powerful set of oscillators for seamless sample playback as well as the next-generation synthesis make HALion a versatile creative tool in simply every situation. Its broad library includes thousands of high-class and deep-sampled instruments and cutting-edge synthesizer sounds for all kinds of musical genres.
With each HALion generation the sample and editing capabilities in HALion have been advanced to the point where the complete workflow, today, is streamlined close to perfection. Powerful sample manipulation tools like AudioWarp for seamless pitch-shifting and real-time time-stretching open up undreamt-of possibilities. The convenient sample-editing tools and the perfectly integrated slice mode give you the opportunity to edit and transform your sounds directly in HALion. The advanced loop detection automation lets you turn your raw material into sophisticated instruments in next to no time.
Next generation wavetable synthesis
With the next-generation wavetable synthesizer in HALion no questions remain unanswered. With two aliasing-free wavetable oscillators arranged in parallel, HALion introduces a powerful yet flexible new sound source for stunning re-synthesis and unheard-of sound creations. The new profound analysis features even let you get creative using your own sounds with ease. Wavetables are automatically extracted, envelopes directly implemented into the wavetables on the fly, the integrated pitch detection finds the right blocksizes with just a click and the graphical spectrum editor makes editing harmonics intuitive and comfortable.
The granular oscillator in HALion raises the standard in terms of flexibility, musicality and sound. By breaking down samples into smallest bits and by playing back the grains in any order, the spectra of all kinds of sounds can be extracted to create stunning new sonic spheres. Each oscillator generates up to eight different grain streams, leading to impressively rich and spacious structures. The innovative feature set offers deep access to the core of the oscillator, supporting you with a fresh, flexible and great-sounding approach to creative and user-friendly granular synthesis.
Virtual analog synthesis
Although designed with a classic setup, the virtual analog section in HALion is geared up with future-proof tools and technologies. Mix the three main oscillators, the sub oscillator, the ring modulation and the noise generator to create powerful cutting-edge sounds. With 16 different oscillator types including traditional waveforms and several algorithms like pulse width and cross modulation the sound of the synthesis can be shaped in various different directions. The highly CPU-efficient multi-oscillator mode allows you to create stunningly rich and wide sounds by multiplying, tuning and panning the voices of the three main oscillators.
With nine drawbars for the organ and three for the percussion, the organ oscillator in HALion faithfully recreates the sound of the classic C3 drawbar organ. Combine two organ oscillators and create instruments with multiple manuals and bass pedals. Due to the sample-based approach of the simulation the organ oscillator in HALion not only sounds warmer, punchier and more authentic than organ simulations based on sine-oscillators but the organ oscillator in HALion also is way more performance-efficient than organ simulations of similar sample size.
The powerful filter section in HALion is an essential part of the sound shaping process and directly connected in series to each oscillator zone. Nine high-end filter types including classic filters, tube drive and bit reduction offer various possibilities to form your sound to the individual character your are looking for. Different filter modes, 24 filter shapes and the x/y control give you a broad tool set for enhancing your sound.
Macro Page Designer
Create your own custom user interfaces with the what-you-see-is-what-you-get Macro Page Designer. HALion brings the creation of instrument Macro Pages from the engineering level straight to the frontpage. Import a background, move any kind of controls from the template library on it and connect parameters from your programs to the Macro Pages via drag and drop. Use your own custom control libraries or start with one of the several macro page style libraries that come with HALion. Your imagination is the only limit.
Dive deeper into HALion than ever before with the help of the powerful scripting engine in HALion. Based on the most commonly used scripting language LUA, HALion Script is powerful, fast and easy to learn and multiplies the sound design opportunities time and again. Create your own script modules and implement them as regular MIDI modules in HALion. The comprehensive online documentation provides not only a full reference of the script, but also hundreds of examples and tutorials for the most common use cases.
Create your own VST Sound archive with your samples, presets and Macro Pages and share your instruments with the world. The convenient Library Creator lets you combine your custom instrument assets via drag and drop and export VST Sound containers that can also be loaded in HALion Sonic and the free HALion Sonic SE.
