Hello everybody. Hope you are well!
So, Halion 7.5. Let’s call it March of 2024
What do you wanna see that you think Steinberg could realistically pull off? I’m voting persistent windows and surround plugin stability! Oh yeah, how about that sweet EX5 Plugin. I seriously think I’m the ONLY PERSON on this forum that loves that synth! HA!
I’d like to see it evolve as a modular synth.
So, HALion 8. Lets call it March of 2029
Why are you being so conservative friend?! I’m calling Halin 11. 2030. Like the second month after Labor Day.
I would like to see better scalability of the interface, and much richer options for sequencing and generative playing, along the lines of Falcon. I would also like to see a major overhaul of the FX within Halion, and fresh, new macro UIs for all of the older synths, in the Verve mould. Also, ideally, I’d love to have preset previews a la Komplete Kontrol, but I’m not holding my breath.
Very good list of wants. I think those are some solid things that I can get behind as well. I would like some updates to the library. Specifically in the keys and the pianos. I agreee, having an overhaul of the effects would be welcome.
I WISH that the surround plugin wouldn’t cause Halion to crash so much. I’m on like 15 crashes a day and it’s maddening. Like the worst. PLUS it corrupts my presets. Ouch!
Halion 7 set us up for the future though. I think we now have some kind of a parity point with the MONTAGE. I just kinda wish they would unify the synths across the board Ala Roland Cloud.
I like the ability to be able to use sounds across devices. At least in principle. I have a Roland Integra and if Roland Cloud is anything like it…then I’m sticking with Halion.
SFZ Import for 7.5. And AN-X with Montage patch compatbility. As we have VA already, it’s clearly a minor change
I second that bnz! I’ve been listening to the new AN engine. I have an EX5. I used to own a AN1-X. It sounds very good. I can’t say it’s BETTER than the Halion VA engine, but I like it a lot. PLUS that second LCD screen!
That’s what you call nighttime studio eye candy! Am I right?
A lot of good ideas!
To me, the most important would be MIDI out like Falcon 3 just got
full auto sampler , I don’t think there is that much to add as HALion already samples , but it would be handy if HALion could play out the Midi its self .
Like Logic Pro X - Auto Sampler
Logic has those really great tools to get things done. That would be amazing to be able to just auto sample directly into Halion.
