I was excited at first, but the strings, brass, piano and wavetable demos tempered that quite a bit. I will stick with Halion 5 atm and will take a good look at Falcon, seems the way to go for an hybrid synth/sampler.
What makes these libraries ridiculous to me:But wouldn't that be the wrong way to judge a sampler anyway? Who cares about what libraries it ships with. It's as significant as the Kontakt Factory Library.
Friends, great truth. Something wrong between Dorico and Halion 6. Steinberg have to think this marketing. Horrible! For me is better Club Cubase, amazing videos!What makes these libraries ridiculous to me:
1. These libraries are getting released in 2017 (they are unacceptable with today's standards)
2. They are made by Steinberg (one of the best music software companies in the world)
3. The guy in the videos keeps saying how incredible they are (which means he has no idea about realistic samples of today)
4. They named the brass library "Hot Brass"
If I were boss of Steinberg, I would fire the sampling team. Because they are hurting Steinberg's reputation.
Perhaps I didn't explain myself well, and I apologize for that. I love Halion 6 and think there are many, many reasons why people should get it.I am sure that Halion can sound very good when very good sample libraries are done for this sampler. Why not?
excellent!Steinberg HALion | Behind-the-Scenes Developer Interview
A behind-the-scene interview with the head of the Steinberg instrument development team, where he explains the story and vision of their hybrid sound creation system: HALion
Is this possible in Halion 5? Is there a tutorial on this or is it pretty easy to do?What makes HALion 6 special is that it has tools to automate making your own sampled instrument. For example, you hit one note, pause, then the next note, pause, etc. and HALion makes all the files, names them and arranges them on the keyboard to build your (basic) instrument. And if you want to share that instrument, HALion also comes with a host of knobs, sliders, buttons, etc for you to make your own interface. Very intuitive--drag them into place, and then assign their functions in a way similar to using MIDI learn. You want a picture? Drag one on.
Will HALion Sonic SE 3 continue to be adequate for Sample Fuel growth and creativity?Since we seem to be the only developer making a real splash in the Halion platform at the moment (hopefully more developers will pop up) I thought I would point you all to a post for our 4th instrument coming October 16th...
Please check out our other instruments at www.samplefuel.com
What's great about all the instruments that anybody can create in HALion 6 is that they can be played in Sonic Free player, which you can download from the Steinberg site.Will HALion Sonic SE 3 continue to be adequate for Sample Fuel growth and creativity?
Is HALion 6 a likely move in near future ??
