Halion Sonic 3 SE: v.220.127.116.11
So I downloaded a VST piano tonight (Novel) and had to install Halion Sonic 3 SE to use it. I thought “cool.”
It’s been a full hour of setting this up (password changes, e-Licenser update, downloads, install) reading, watching bits of videos, but I can’t find information as to WHY no sound is coming out. I see the MIDI blinking (using the Halion pianoroll or a 88 key controller).
I did not select to install the Generic lower latency Asio at install because I already have an ASIO driver with my Fast Track Ultra M-Audio external sound card.
I tried it as standalone, and from within my DAW (Mixcraft). Same deal. Not very intuitive so far…
I just installed HSSE3 (and did the licensing thing) and have it running just as a standalone to test it out. I’m simply trying to hear some of the sounds by selecting them (IE: GM 039 Synth Bass 1) and poking the virtual keyboard along the bottom.
I’m seeing the midi things light up OK when I poke at the virtual keys.
When I go into Preferences → Output → Audio output ports → I see: Speakers (Realtek High Defin 1)
Anything else I should be looking at? The Advanced Tab? Control Panel? (IE: allow ASIO exclusive control… ?)
