HALion String Edition Vol. 1 is Steinberg's
first complete string orchestra for computer-based music
production. The included specially-developed VST- and DirectX-
compatible player provides a direct connection to production
systems like Cubase SX, Cubase SL and Nuendo. The 8 double
basses, 10 cellos, 12 violas and 16 violins provided offer a
perfect foundation for creating anything from a Hollywood
soundtrack or a classic rock symphony.
HALion String Edition Vol. 1 from Steinberg is a complete
computer-based string orchestra with a 5 GB sound library.
The well-known and successful musician and composer, Claudius
Bruese, who has already made an important contribution to the
development of the legendary VST piano, THE GRAND, also played
a significant part in the production of the HALion String
Edition. This software gives the precision in reproducing
acoustic instruments, the superior sound quality and clarity,
as well as the playing characteristics users around the world
have come to expect of products bearing his name.
