Groove3 HALion 4 Getting Started TUTORIAL
HALion 4 is the newest incarnation of Steinberg’s powerful VST sampler. In this series, Steinberg guru Mark Struthers shows you how to get this powerful sampler up and running, as well as in-depth coverage of its features and functions.
Mark begins by taking a look at HALion 4’s preferences as well as discussing the differences in the stand-alone and plug-in versions. Next, Mark demonstrates how to use the Scratch Pad and its features, and then discusses screen sets and how they can be set up. Taking a closer look at HALion’s complex user interface, Mark demonstrates how to create the all-mighty Multi.
Moving on, Mark discusses importing and integrating samples to run alongside synthesized sound to create more complex timbres, and talks in detail about how HALion can create sound, making it much more than just an audio sampler. Mark then shows how audio samples can be easily manipulated, including adjusting the length of samples and HALion’s formidable looping feature. Finally, Mark shows how to map Multis across a specific key range prior to editing in an audio editor, such as Steinberg’s Wavelab.
