HALiontron - Watcher of the Skies & plans for more samples?

I dug into HALiotron last night and decided to re-create the brass/string sound that Tony Banks used on the intro to Watcher of the Skies by Genesis.


HALiotron is really cool but I wonder if Steinberg has plans to release expansion packs to add more Mellotron samples to it, such as the Bass Accordion, Celeste, Cello, Violin, Viola, M400 strings, etc.

What say ye, Steinberg?

ARE these sampled though?

I thought these were made to sound like Trons by using the original Halion strings, etc. and running thru fx like tape and distortion.

They sounds good, no question. In some cases I like them better than Tron sounds.


I was hoping with the release of 8.5 there would be more HALiotron samples, but no.

Any plans, Steinberg?
