Halion Sonic SE3 - text labels distorted / font problem?


I think the screenshots say it all. It’s the built-in Halion Sonic SE3 in Cubase 9.5.10 (Windows 10)…
As far as I know it’s only in the Options screen and in the effects.
Any idea how to solve it? I’ve searched for it, but have not found anyone else reporting this issue.

Best regards,

Nobody? Anything?


Thanks! I didn’t find that page when looking for a solution - probably because I don’t have Halion 6 or Halion Sonic 3.
So that d2dfix.reg file will solve it?

So why do I have this Direct2D problem? Does Halion Sonic SE3 expect DirectX9 to be installed or something? And why is it solved for Halion 6 or Halion Sonic 3 in an update, but not for Halion Sonic SE3 in Cubase 9.5? (all questions that probably only Steinberg can answer :stuck_out_tongue: )

I had the same issue with Halion 6, Halion Sonic 3 and Halion Sonic SE 3. The update didn’t fix it for me, I had to do the registry thing.

Are you using a first or second generation of Intel HD Graphics card?

Intel® HD Graphics 3000, never had any issues with it… before this that is. :wink:

Same graphic card like mine.

If you fancy some reading there is a thread in Halion/Issues forum:


Thanks!! I spent quite some time searching this forum and didn’t find anything… :blush:
