Hello guys, greetings from Brazil, hope you’re doing fine.
My name is Edu Camargo and I am a blind musician based in São Paulo, southeast of Brazil. Some time ago I’ve bought HaLion 6 to use in my musical productions, and I got really impressed with the arsenal of sounds it offers already, without any aditional content. Thanks to Windows 10’s OCR feature and the NVDA screen reader, I’m able to navigate most parts of HaLion 6 and HaLion Sonic interfaces, since they do not present information using standard accessibility methods offered by the system, being this part restricted only to context menus. Yes, we can navigate to certain areas of these softwares using tab, arrow keys and stuff, but when we want to access specific parts, then I use the OCR to scan the screen, read the presented text and I can also interact with them. When I get to the list of presets, I click once to give focus to the list, exit OCR and use up and down arrows and enter to preview sounds. AS needed, I save these presets via the plug-in window on the DAW (I use REAPER as my DAW).
For days I’ve been using HaLion Sonic in REAPER when I wanted to use Steinberg sounds because it has become easier for me to access the slots and use as a multi-timbral. But HaLion 6 gives me access to HaLion 4 sounds that I find really amazing as well. The problem is, I can’t figure out something that seems very simple, that is: how to load multiple sounds within HaLion 6? The operation manual specifies that by default, HaLion 6 shows only slots that contains sounds, and if I want to show the empty slots, I should click on “show empty slots” on the slot rack controls, which I can’t access for the moment, maybe because I don’t know how… But I believe that loading multiple sounds in HaLion 6 does not require extra steps, probably I’m missing something; so here I am looking for a HaLion expert’s help.
Thanks in advance for your support, and sorry for the long post.
