All very new to me this - including using a Forum! I have Cubase LE5 working fine with a Tascam interface. I have been playing with the Halion One virtual instruments and my midi keyboard but I’d like to have more choice of instruments and sounds now - not just a choice of 2 pianos! Can I download additional sounds from the Steinburg website (like you say in your post) for free? Will they all work or have I to keep to only ones for LE5? or do I have I to buy them?

There are many more.

I have Halion One. It came with my LE4 version (which I have up-graded to 4.1.3) or something like that. May I up-grade this version?
Thanks,
Ed

No.
HalionONE isn’t a part of the “Halion” family persay, and HalionSonic SE is only included in the Cubase 6 line.
If you wish to upgrade, you’d have to purchase either HalionSonic or Halion 4.
