Steinberg HALion 4 overview

  • 1Description

HALion 4 from Steinberg is a powerful and comprehensive, yet ultra-flexible and user-friendly VST sampler and sound creation system. The software is more than a professional VST sampler - the fourth incarnation of HALion delivering a state-of-the-art sample engine with an award-winning synthesizer section, along with various tools and effects.

A universal workhorse for professional sound designers, producers and musicians alike, it offers everything they need to turn their sonic vision to reality. The flexible desktop architecture can be adjusted to each step of the creative process and a range of studio-grade effect processors, a world-class library and features such as MegaTrig or VST 3.5 support are also included.

HALion 4 offers a complete range of acoustic, electric and electronic instrument sounds along with a wealth of drums, effects and more. The included studio-quality library features up to 20 articulations per instrument for natural-sounding productions and covers an enormous range of styles - from the detailed acoustic instruments to legendary synthesizers, club sounds and soundscapes, from ultra-realistic acoustic drum kits to the latest electronic beats.

Note: This package is an educational discount for school and educational institutions only (not for individual students). Proof of status is required.
