Hi again, really tearing into Halion 4 I have come across a couple things I think should be in Halion 4 and would make it all the better than it already is. Both of the following ideas are in relation to the SAMPLE tab contained within Halion 4.
1.) Halion 4 is lacking a timestretch/pitch shift feature found in other software samples such as Kontakt and with great success in those programs. I would love to see these features found within Halion 4 for even more control/manipulation of imported samples one could use within their project. I would love to see some sort of ‘free warp’ option like that found in the audio editing of Cubase itself. Being able to drop anchors and manipulate the length and timing of a sample would be extremely useful in addition to everything else Halion 4 has to offer. Please consider such an addition. The SAMPLE tab is already closely related to the Cubase audio editing with its snap, set zero crossings, start/end time etc. I think the space available could accommodate such additional features.
2.) Halion 4 needs fade in/fade out handles like those found throughout Cubase for audio on the project page. I would love to set my start and end points of a sample, as well as drag a handle for fade in and fade out just like an audio event in Cubase. This would aid in click/pop diminishing, smooth bringing in and out of sounds etc. I have tried to manipulate this with the attack and release of the envelope but it just isn’t the same. Such handles are already found in the crossfading of samples between each other in Halion 4 and look exactly like the fade handles found in Cubase audio events. Could we possibly get fade handles in the sample editing section of Halion 4?
Thanks for reading.
