Software Description

HALion Sonic is Steinberg’s premier VST workstation.

Over a thousand instrument sounds created by top sound experts at Yamaha and Steinberg offer a staggering array of first class synths, hybrid and acoustic instruments, covering almost any conceivable style.

Exclusive and comprehensive world-class content, an intuitive interface for seamless handling and the sheer endless possibilities of creating entirely new landscapes deliver truly unlimited sonic dimensions.

One cool thing is that it can stream samples from disk so you can have long and complex samples that you don't need to load into precious RAM.

  • Unique morphing filters seamlessly blend between up to 4 of 24 filter shapes
  • FlexPhraser module for dynamically driving beats, arpeggios and complex tonal phrases
