I was searching the forums for this but never found a clear statement: is the S90ES piano sound that was implemented in Halion One (and as far as I know also in Halion Sonic SE) also available in H4 (probably with another name) ? I
m a user of Cubase 5 so I dont have SE available.
yes, the Yamahs S90ES Piano is part of the HalionSonic SE Library and shows up in Halion 4.
thanks for your answer. It
s strange as I cant find the sound. Could it be that it is named differently?
it´s exact the same name. But you need Cubase6 and HalionSE installed.
this is the explanation as I only have Cubase 5,
kind regards, humphrey
I’ve been using the Yamaha S90ES Piano in Cubase 5 (through Halion One). I was using it for playback of my son’s homework scores (which I kindly type in for the young ingrate ). I just upgraded Halion Sonic to Halion 4.
I have the same thing going on: S90ES is not available within Halion 4. I just carried on using S90ES through Halion One within Cubase. That doesn’t solve it in standalone though.
This doesn’t help you I know; I just wanted to say you’re not alone on this one.
thanks a lot for your posting this. To be serious: I
m not really in trouble with the missing S90ES. It would have been nice to have this sound available in H4 with lower RAM consumption than I have at the moment. I dont use VSTis for recording purpose in Cubase only but also for use on stage with special live hosts. Here the problem was I hadn`t available the S90ES sound on them as it is bundles to Cubase.
I decided to do me some favor and sampled the whole S90ES instrument in Cubase and imported the samples into Halion 3. So I principally have available S90ES in H3 and now also in H4. For 2 reasons I would have been happy to have it available as standard sound in H4:
- Probably the finetuning of the sound may be better than my sampled version (but I do not really hear a difference to be serious)
- The RAM consumption should be dramatical lower than in my case: I sampled 8 velocity steps for every note of the instrument without loopings which leads to about 2GBytes!
So maybe I
ll by Cubase 6 some day but Im able to have the S90ES available on stage at the moment.
Nevertheless thanks for clearification und kind regards, humphrey
I have the S90es in H4!?. The name is “YAMAHA S90ES Piano” and should be come from “EXP_YMH_001_S90ES_Piano.hsb / EXP_YMH_001_S90ES_Piano_Set1.hsb” i think.
Maybe the path to these files is missing in your H4-Mediabay?
Yes, it’s there, YAMAHA S90ES Piano, in HALion 4
I found the .hsb library where S90ES is placed but H4 prohibits to import it. Are both of you users of C6 ?
I didnt import the .hsb. The preset was simply there .
The content for Halion, HalionHSB, HalionOne, HalionSE is stored in one folder here (moved them on my samplelib-hd) and I had nothing more to do.
Cubase6 here. But i see the preset in the standalone-version too.
Same here, after installing HALion 4 (used in Cubase 6.0.0. and stand alone) all the presets were there incl. the YAMAHA S90ES Piano
I find the soundfiles in C/ProgramData/Steinberg/Content but alway when I try to register the sound I get the following message:
“Content file(s) not supported and cannot be registered: EXP_YMH_001_S90ES_Piano.hsb”
I think it really depends on Cubase 6.
Nevertheless thanks a lot for the kind support,
I get the exact same error message Humphrey. I’m getting a slightly annoyed with this particular issue.
I could try moving the halion one vst or hsb files around the various folders but it’s hit and miss (with too many permutations) and may not be a solution anyhow.
Do you know how to ask Steinberg for help on this?
I think the only way is to log in to “My Steinberg” and chose the “Support Request Form”. There you can leave a request.
Good luck and please keep us informed if you get any new informations,
kind regards, humphrey
