The latest version of Steinberg’s HALion VST sampler adds new features that extend the boundaries of virtual sampling and sound design software. New instruments and sound sources, an added granular synthesis engine, new effects, a slicing mode and much more complement the myriad capabilities that have made HALion an indispensable tool for pro musicians, producers and sound designers worldwide. An extensive sound library, a vast array of audio creation tools and ultra-expressive sound modules combine with a next-generation interface to create a powerfully inspirational instrument that forms the heart of modern sound creation or production environments.

HALion combines the best in sampling technology with the latest in virtual analog synthesis to offer a fully integrated sound design environment for professionals. HALion 5 further extends the sound-creation possibilities through the addition of a granular synthesis engine and an ultra-authentic tone wheel oscillator. Plus, audio tools such as the new Slicing module and the Audio Warp pitch-shifting and time-stretching toolkit that is based on algorithms by zplane make audio material supremely malleable — reform and remold audio to suit your project and not the other way round. Build complex sample libraries on the fly, create cutting-edge synths and invent your own sound — all in one intuitive instrument.

HALion 5 supports you from the earliest stage of your production, including importing and mapping your sounds, letting you assign your sounds on-the-fly during the import stage and even extracting keyrange, velocity and root key information directly from the file name and transfering them to your program. The workflow-optimized HALion 5 mapping editor makes the mapping process easy and convenient. Fading between zones, easy ‘drag and drop’ and automatic gap filling are just a few features that are as useful as they are intuitive to use.
