I had to re-install Cubase 4 (Mac) when imported audio files played back like the sound of chipmunks playing poker. Reinstallation fixed the problem but introduced a new one. I can load HalionOne as a VST instrument but when I click the black window near the top left in the HalionOne instrument edit window I get an empty search and viewer “list” with no instruments for me to choose, and it’s the same if I click on the program window just below the HalionOne instrument in the inspector.
On the other hand,if I click the “no track preset” window (inspector) below drum map item, I get a list of categories like I should, but again with no instruments that I can select.
If I open a cubase project which I have previously saved with HalionOne Instruments, the instruments sound correct, just as I programmed them in, the instruments are present on instrument tracks, but again I see no instruments to choose from if I want to change to a different HalionOne instrument.
Is this a problem with new installs and how can I fix it. Thanks!
OK, I’ve tried several things. Reinstalled Cubase 4, re-installed HalionOne from the DVD and also from downloading a halion installer from the Steinberg site. I haven’t tried uninstalling HalionOne because I don’t see any uninstall options. Also I can’t find any HalionOne installers except the updates, so I guess I haven’t really done a full re-install of HalionOne.
I have noticed a new VST instrument is available in the Add VST instruments window which is called simply "Halion (instead of HalionOne). I can select numbered "programs but none of them make any sound.
There are no threads I can find on this subject using the search function.
I’ve tried Right-clicking the HalionOne editor window and used the “Locate Contents” option. I tried various locations including folders on the hard disk whose folder and file names include the word halion and even a folder on the “Additional Content” folder that I had previously copied from the Cubase 4 DVD to the HardDrive.
I tried using the Media Bay window and dragging and double-clicking the various instruments I see there to an empty HalionOne VST Instrument and they simply won’t copy.
I’m desperate now and am asking for further help pretty please with sugar on top!
I don’t know why this worked, but what I did was to click on the name field of the HalionOne VST instrument edit window and got my usual document with headers but no presets.
Then I clicked on a folder named HalionOne in the empty list and unchecked a checkmarked box to the left of that folder and was warned I was about to remove HalionOne database, so rather than removing the HalionOne set, I clicked on the [Keep] button and all the instruments appeared and could be selected and played once more.
