HALion Sonic is Steinberg's premier VST (Virtual Studio Technology) workstation that breaks new ground in terms of performance, versatility and ease of use. Over a thousand instrument sounds created by top sound experts at Yamaha and Steinberg offer a staggering array of first class synths, hybrid and acoustic instruments, covering almost any conceivable style. HALion Sonic is the long-anticipated successor to the highly acclaimed Hypersonic 2 workstation, and allows you to work more productively than ever before. Exclusive and comprehensive world-class content, an intuitive interface for seamless handling and the sheer endless possibilities of creating entirely new landscapes deliver truly unlimited sonic dimensions.

HALion Sonic redefines quality and variety for workstation instruments with a next-generation sampling and synthesis technology, innovative control and editing features and an outstanding library that covers a wide range of styles — from finest detailed acoustic instruments to legendary synthesizers, club sounds and soundscapes, from ultra-realistic acoustic drum kits to the latest electronic beats.

The exquisite sound engine that powers HALion Sonic builds on Steinberg's latest sampling and synthesis technologies and offers four extremely powerful, yet easy-to-use sound engine modes at its core: high-performance Disk-Streaming Sample Playback for breathtaking recreation of acoustic instruments including all articulations, a dedicated Sliced-Loop mode for using and abusing loop-based beats, a special Drum mode with all the tools needed to produce studio-grade drum tracks, and finally a complete and fully editable Virtual Analog Synthesis Engine offering multiple oscillator types and full access to all sound-sculpting parameters for the most demanding synthesis experts.

HALion Sonic's flexible sound architecture includes unique morphing filters which seamlessly blend between up to four of the 24 different filter types and guarantees new sonic levels. Virtually unlimited polyphony provides enough creative headroom to max out the Multi Program Rack with up to 16 individual programs sounding at the same time. Each program and even each layer features its own effect rack with a total of four insert slots fueled by one of the 16 effect types, including gems such as REVerence or the or the exceptionally sounding rotary cabinet emulation.
