I used the original Halion 2 in a composition years back and it had a ‘soul kit’ for drums. Now around fifteen years on, I can’t find an original or pirated copy for the life of me and my song doens’t sound right without it. I have heard Halion releases sometimes include samples from old versions and was hoping someone can either confirm whether they have come across this kit, or know where I can get the samples from the original Halion 2.
I have Halion 3 and Halion 5 and in Halion 3 there are three variations of Soul Kit - Eco, Mid and XXL
All the Halion 3 content files can be downloaded here https://www.steinberg.net/index.php?id=910&L=1
The Soul Kit is in Halion Soundset 1 however I’m not sure if the sounds are backward compatable so may not open in your Halion 2
Hope this helps?
Hi James, this is certainly promising information!
I no longer have the original Halion 2 which is why I don’t have access to its library.
If there are three ‘soul kits’ in the latest Halion then I will likely go ahead and buy it in hopes that it’s the same as the one I was using all those years back.
It appears the original kit was an .fxp file on CD1. I don’t know whether this is relevant or will help confirm it’s the same thing?
Thanks for your input
