I installed the Halion 7 software with Steinberg Product Manager.
Unfortunately the appication itself makes no sound while the keyboard is sending midi input and in Studio One 6 I also don´t see the VST for Halion 7. Only Halion 6 is in the list - even after running an update vsts in the browser.
Any ideas to these 2 issues?
After the download of the software I found the steinberg product manager showing “reinstall software” which I did not want. It suggested to me it did install the software all by its own. My assumption is, that everything necessary was done by the SDM.
Also I can run the Halion 7 software in standalone mode as already mentioned. No sounds though…
If you haven’t rebooted your system after upgrading to HALion 7, I suggest you do that first.
I’m pretty sure HALion 7 does not support VST2, in line with Steinberg’s VST2 deprecation policy. You don’t need to specify a path for VST3, as it is always the same and not user-configurable according to the VST3 specification. I don’t use Studio One, but can you double-check that HALion 7 is not showing as a VST3?
Your output issue could be down to the output set in the settings dialog of HALion standalone. Are you on Windows or Mac?
Sounds have are now working in the standalone app of Halion 7.
But Studio One still does not find the Halion 7 VST for some reason maybe also not Halion 6.
Halion 6 is shown in the vst list of S1 but does not produce a visualization ones dragged into the Studio One workspace onto a track. Halion Sonic works as expected.
Halion 7 is even not represented after a full vst scan in S1.
sorry to hear that you run into trouble. S1 is usually a very good vst3 host, so HALion 7 should work. Before sending you to Presonus or Steinberg support, we can try a few steps for due diligence troubleshooting.
You are right in your expectation that the Steinberg Download Assistant should have handled everything correctly. To be “closer” to the system, I would like to ask you to run the downloaded installer directly.
You can access the download folder with the following steps on the screenshot below:
I deinstalled Halion 7, and reinstalled it 2 times. Reinstalling it ones from SDM and another time via the downloaded installer, rebootet and still no Halion 7 in S1.
I checked Cubase for the plugin an there it was.
Cubase ok, S1 not.
Infact resetting the blocklist and scanning on start-up did the trick.
Rescanning the plugins from the plugin manager did not.
Also I reset the blocklist in the plugin manager and rescanned the plugins. That did not work.
It needed to be in the options dialog apparently. Strange.
