I just purchased the Synthesizers - VST Sound Instrument Set as a download from steinberg.net, thinking it would be compatible with my Cubase Elements 7 (which has Halion-sonic SE)
It seems that it is necessary to install Halion-one to use the instruments. It said that this can be installed manually from the DVD which came when I bought Cubase Elements 7. I have looked on the DVD under ‘Additional Content’ but cannot find anything.
I am a bit frustrated that I just spent £22 but have something that I cannot use.
Can you please let me know what I should do in order to get this Halion-ONE running and to use the package I paid for?
Many Thanks in anticipation of your help.
I have resolved this issue now.
I installed Halion-one using the following links supplied by Steinberg:
HALionOne 1.1 for Mac OS X
HALionOne 1.1 for Windows
It actually still didn’t work, since the hsb (soundbanks) were put in the wrong place by the expansion pack. I had to move them to here:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg\VST2
It seems to be working now with my Cubase Elements 7.
I am still surprised that Steinberg should be selling an expansion pack that only works with a synth that they no longer use themselves and which was not readily available. I will be much more cautious about buying anything from their website in future,
