All hail Halion!

Steinberg debuts new soft sampler      02/01/01

Steinberg have announced details of a new software sampler, the somewhat bizarrely named Halion. It supports 32-bit sampling, boasts a 24db filter, sample-accurate timing, as well as pitch and modulation effects. These include 2 LFO's and 2 envelopes, along with Notch, Hi-pass, Lo-pass, and Band-pass filters. The integrated loop editor offers numerous cross-fading and tuning options, whilst the virtual keyboard screen allows samples to previewed quickly and easily. Support for Akai, Emu and Roland file formats is promised, and to top it all off, the drag and drop interface is said to make navigation and editing a breeze. Needless to say, Halion is designed to flawlessly intergrate with Cubase, which should certainly help kick-start it's launch. No official release date has been set, but rest assured that the Sonic crew will be keeping their eyes on the Steinberg stand at NAMM...
