I think I would like to buy Halion Sonic if only I could try it out. I’ve never got SE or the HS trial version to work reliably. Main problem is no sound is output: everything seems to be working, mapped Main in the HS editor “Mix” tab thru to the F11 instrument assignment (and the output lane). The level meters react correctly.
Sometimes, with all gain turned up, there is a quiet clicking sound, which seems to be tonal - i.e., a higher key produces a higher click.
All other VST instrument are working fine.
Today, I was playing with the trial version, and loaded “Multi” sets - and wonder of wonders - they produce sound output but only if played via the HS built-in keyboard - and if I assign a midi controller, not only does it not work, the built-in keyboard wont work again after that (although the keys of the built-in keyboard reflect the midi in).
This is a fresh install of Cubase 6.0.5 onto a brand-new Windows 7 box.
Any ideas before I give up on the instrument?
