Dark Planet add-on is designed for for cinematic scores and ambient music 18/04/12
Steinberg has released Dark Planet, the latest expansion pack for HALion 4, HALion Sonic and HALion Sonic SE*. Offering a palette of electronic sounds from which to choose, they say that Dark Planet is a vast, emotional world full of ethereal colors and ghostly shapes.
Matthias Quellmann, product marketing manager at Steinberg, told Sonic State, "If you're looking to create a movie-like sound experience, with ambient soundscapes and haunting phrases, you just won't get around this one."
Steinberg tells us that Dark Planet comprises 800 presets including lead, bass, pad and percussion loops and instruments as well as high-quality sample content that spans more than 2 GB in size. Its prominent MorphFilter boasts four classic filter types for blending two filters at a time. The Macro Page transforms the HALion host into an extraterrestrial adventure, providing immediate access to the sound control parameters of Dark Planet.
Dark Planet does not require the USB-eLicenser dongle due to its Soft-eLicenser copy-protection technology. Features at a glance
