What is the realtionship between HSO & the older version

I just recently purchased and downloaded the Black-Friday special “HALion Symphonic Orchestra”. It seems to come with about 6-7 GB of samples. But there was an earlier version of this HSO with 27 GB. What is the relationship between the two softwares? I assume that the older larger version is extinct.

Aloha C,

Not sure about the GB content but one thing I do know is,
the latest version is compatible with Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite)
while the older version is not fully supported. If at all.

Good Luck!


the size difference is because the content on older version of HSO was available in 16 bit and 24 bit, whereas the new version only contains the 16 bit content.

Hope this helps

Are there any plans for a newer version/update to HSO? Any chance that we could at least get back a choice of downloading/using the 24 bit soundset?
