HALion 5 and HALion Sonic 2 treat users to thousands of synthesized and acoustic sounds, dialed in through eight fantastically new instruments: the sleek virtual analog Trium synthesizer, Auron for granular oscillation, Voltage delivers extra punch, World Instruments and World Percussion, HALiotron, the Model C organ emulation and the B-Box step sequencer for beats and drum patterns.

Both HALion and HALion Sonic now feature nine new effects including VST Amp for superb guitar and bass effect sounds and Auto Filter for seamless sound morphing. Based on Yamaha’s Motif technology, FlexPhraser offers complex arpeggios, now sporting the user phrase editor to create custom patterns and phrases.

In addition, HALion 5 comes with two new sound sources, introducing the granular synthesis engine for creating beautiful sonic textures and the tone-wheel organ simulation with nine organ and percussion drawbars. Also new to HALion is the slicing mode that allows users to adjust audio material to fit any beat or track. Two new MIDI modules feature MIDI Player to load MIDI files that can be edited and triggered remotely. Drum Player is a step sequencer conceived and designed to play drum beats and rhythms.

Steinberg today releases version 1.5 of its premier VST workstation, HALion Sonic. With 64-bit support on Mac platforms, an extensive set of brass and reed programs, General MIDI implementation, brilliant new effects and an optimized performance, Steinberg's flagship workstation is now even more powerful.

The native 64-bit support under Mac OS X dramatically increases the addressable amount of memory, enabling even more programs and sounds to be loaded at once. With version 1.5, HALion Sonic's world-class library has been expanded with 1.2 GB of exceptionally sounding brass and reed programs. The update also adds four new distortion modes to the filter type section and comes with 28 legacy effects taken from HALion 3, along with a refined distortion insert effect. The overall improved performance and Note Expression support round out the new feature set in the 1.5 version.
