soapbox Posted August 9, 2001 Share Posted August 9, 2001 Now that Steinberg's [url=http://www.steinberg.net/products/ae/plugins/halion/index.phtml?sid=06546943]HALion[/url] has been out for over a month, does anyone have some experience with it to share? As a Mac user who was denied a chance to experience Gigasampler, it sounds as if this could be the sampler I've been waiting for. In addition to seamless VST integration, this [b]32 bit[/b] software sampler streams samples direct-from-disk much in the same way Gigasampler does. In addition, it supports Akai, LM4 scripts, WAV, AIFF, E-mu, Roland, and Soundfont2 formats! It sure looks good on paper. In fact, it seems that the only disadvantage of HALion compared to Gigasampler is that HALion can't access the library of huge samples, which has already been released in Gigasampler format. However considering the popularity of VST instruments, I imagine that gap will shrink rapidly. So I want to know, if HALion is so great, why aren't more people writing about it? Is the market so glutted that people are just unaware of its existence? Also, does HALion work with DP 3 using VST Wrapper, Pluggo, or VSTi Host? If anyone is using it, please share. Thanks, soapbox Enthusiasm powers the world. Craig Anderton's Archiving Article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
