unstable under Reaper

Catszcz, 18.12.2017
I use Halion Sonic 3 in the home studio. The somewhat bulky operation can be overcome because of the excellent sound quality. Unfortunately, crashes occur very often in very small projects under Cocko's Reaper, regardless of the type of involvement. Otherwise my system runs super stable with a variety of different VSTs.

An inexpensive sound library

Bernd_54, 25.08.2017
The amount of sounds is overwhelming, I think everyone will find what he needs here.
I perform on a solo or duo basis as an entertainment musician with music "querbeet". This field is well covered with the sound supply for my needs.
However, it takes a considerable amount of time to familiarize yourself with this software. Since I am still (but now for about 5 months) in the learning process and therefore still use my Tyros4 for appearances.
The goal was to access the HalionSonic Sounds for guitars only.
This is probably only practicable when creating audio playback for a performance. With the software on the stage is not advisable in terms of operational reliability (which also requires a powerful computer, 64-bit system is a prerequisite).
So fulfilled with this software so far not my desire to give up the keyboard in performances, but still I have not regretted the purchase. With this sound library you can discover new things for a long time and also make great audio playbacks for performances.
Personally, I just miss the flexibility with a small file size of midi files.
Take into account (and check before buying) one should absolutely meet the requirements of the calculator. And unfortunately the software is not available on physical disks but only as a download. Around 27 GB can ever be a challenge, depending on the existing Internet connection.

Conclusion:
I do not achieve my goal of using Halion Sonic 3 in live performances.
Nevertheless a worthwhile purchase for the work in the small home studio and there also basis for great audio playback for special occasions.
