HALion 5 from Steinberg is the latest incarnation of their virtual VST sampler and adds features that extend the boundaries of virtual sampling and sound design software. Additional instruments, sound sources and effects, an added granular synthesis engine, a slicing mode and much more, make the software instrument a staple tool for professional musicians, producers and sound designers everywhere.

Audio tools such as the Slicing module and the Audio Warp pitch-shifting and time-stretching toolkit based on algorithms by zplane allow for radical restructuring of the sounds. An extensive sound library, a vast array of audio creation tools and sound modules combine with an updated interface to create a powerful instrument that can form the heart of modern sound creation or production environments.

From the start of production the software provides support, including importing and mapping sounds, allowing for assigning sounds on-the-fly during the import stage, and extracting key range, velocity and root key information directly from the file name and transferring them to the program. The mapping editor makes mapping easy and convenient. Fading between zones, easy drag-and-drop and automatic gap filling are just a few features that are intuitive to use.

HALion 5 integrates into various VST applications, with seamless integration into Cubase and WaveLab and makes full use of the Advanced Integration (AI) support for the company's hardware. Additionally the software supports VST 3.5 for full articulation and controller editing inside Cubase. VST Expression 2 makes working with instrument articulations as easy as it should be.
