Also check out the Halion Sonic forum for
more user info on this product.
Don’t know if cost is an issue for you but
because I previously owned a Steinberg product called:
Halion Player, I was able to get HSonic as
an upgrade for $99.00 USD
Something to think about because at the $249.00
price there is some really nice 3rd party stuff out there.
Sampled stuff is selling cheaper these days.
The unit itself is solid as a stand alone as well as a plug.
With ton’s of editing and some really kool other features,
you can do tons of work with its ability to playback/
modify/edit MIDI files all on its own. No Cubase needed.
Lots o’ sounds including brass,pianos,basses,guitars etc.
The ‘mic’d’ upright bass sound is to my ears ‘killer’.
Also comes with many many many loops etc
and lots of ‘flex’ stuff that are IMHO surprising useful.
I didn’t that would happen.
Lots more horn sounds from which to choose but
being an old tbn player I am very picky about brass
and I think ALL BRASS VSTI’s STINK; no matter who makes them.
But that’s just my opinion.
The addition pianos are just that; additional and nice.
(I am currently researching piano sounds).
But as Paul posted, when it comes to killer pianos
you might want to look for something with more
HTH (hope this helps)
