A true workstation VST

SLiC, 16.06.2017
Firstly, this is V1, just out-there are a few bugs (nothing mission critical) and I am sure Steiny being a big reputable software house will iron them out very soon.

Secondly, I am not a fan of elicencer - although you don't need a hardware dongle, the software licence is just for one computer....with the hardware dongle you can move it around, but iloc is far more generous.

When you buy this you don't get disc, just the licence code, so whatever happens you have to download it (20Gig) - you can download it and run it for free (no limitations) for 30 days- so do that before you buy- ALWAYS!! Then you almost certainly buy it if it works OK on your system...

Other than that, it is just about perfect and can do just about everything....even sample! No brainier for the cost, ...but don't take my word for it, just download the demo!

Finally a "sampler" who really deserves the name!

d.r.music, 16.03.2018
I use the "HALion 6" mainly for own sound design in the home recording area.

Positive is of course the problem-free integration in Cubase as well as the sound recording in a real software sampler.

The fact that the manufacturers have needed so long from a "sample player" to a "real" sampler "is not really to accomplish. (" ... better late than never ")

The content in my opinion, has been upgraded to HALion 4 and 5 again properly in the form of various VSTi such as "Skylab" or "Anima". In addition, you also get the "HALion Sonic" as Content + VSTi, which really is not to be despised here.

The possibilities of the different "synthesis forms" over the "sound effect processing" as well as a real "sample recording" is so immense in the HALion 6 that one is nearly killed!

Not so good I found the careless "HALion 6 - Box" where only the "activation code" was in it. First, the software boxes were getting smaller, then the "manuals" were abolished and now there are only downloads! If the manufacturers in the future continue to do so, then there are the "licenses" soon only by mail in the envelope.

My personal conclusion is that the "HALion 6" really requires training, but if you get involved then it becomes a real gain in the studio everyday.
