Is the Halion Sonic 1.6.2 update also applicable to the Halion Sonic SE ?

Good question. Here https://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=31111 its said,
DOWNLOAD HALION SONIC SE 1.6.3 FROM THE DOWNLOAD PAGE FOR YOUR CUBASE VERSION.

But when you go to the dl page, theres nothing. Latest still 1.6.2. Here now its a Halion Sonic update, not SE. A bit weird, Steinberg should clear that.

For C7: I noticed that the HALion Sonic SE 1.63 update is bundled within the C7.01 update.
For C65: The download links are towards the bottom of the 6.5 download page.

Thanks Fesick for this tip :wink:
