I’ve downloaded and installed the Dorico trial, the HSO vst2 and vst3 instruments, and the HSO .vstsound content. I can open and use Dorico, use the VST standalones, and manually load HSO instruments into Halion Sonic SE (which I reinstalled today to see if it would help the problem --it didn’t. [I didn’t bother reinstalling HSE2 at first because I already had it from my Cubase 7.5]). However, when I try to load a template such as “Film Orchestra”, etc., the HSE2 instances are populated as follows: The first is empty except for the default synth in the first channel, and the second is mostly empty, except for a few non-HSO instruments, like the GM instruments, the pianos, and the orchestral harp.
I’d really hate to have to manually load in each of the HSO instruments. Is there a way to manually reload the template’s instrument sets, or to define my own? Or does this point to an error made somewhere in the installation process? At any rate, what can I do to resolve this problem?
