The products that qualify for both Absolute 3 and Halion 6 crossgrades are Kontakt / Komplete, Falcon, Machfive, Omnisphere.

This list shows up when you click Add to cart.


Thanks. I have everything but Machfive. I guess a screen shot of my product registration would be easiest to send. I assume that's somewhere on the About screen.

Sorry for the stupid questions but I've never done a crossgrade before. Honestly, I don't understand why one company will give you a discount on their product if you bought a product from another company.

The reasoning behind this is that you won't consider buying the product, if you own a product of the competition that covers the same area, unless the price is right.

Yep. It's like when a car company buys your old car from a competing company, when you buy a new car from them.
It's not "news" anymore, it's "infotainment".

Ya. Except for the fact that Steinberg doesn't take your old license from you. And that there is no physical product involved. So I guess not like that at all. But I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, sorry.
This is a block of text that can be added to posts you make. There is a 255 character limit. Once I have something clever, I will certainly fill it in.

Well, you pay less for the crossgrade, don't you?

The point is that they want to make you check out their product. Or completely switch to it.

Hello,

any real world user reports on how stable HALion 6 is on Mac.

I used HALion1-3 (with 2 being quite great, 3 being acceptable) and then updated to HALion 5 but only lately started to use it (on MacOS El Capitan - not on Sierra, latest HALion 5 update) - and - at least on my system - calling HALion 5 'not that stable' is pretty diplomatic expression for how it works. Also the UI is not that responsive .... (regarding sample layout, editing sample mapping - not playing and using the standard modules as is)

Did HALion 6 improve on that?
(I cannot install the demo without killing HALion 5 installation - which actually might not be a bad thing, but, well ....)

Any real word reports?

Thanks
best

I don't use OS X but Halion 6 should be more stable. They've fixed a ton of bugs since Halion 5 was released.

Halion has advantages over competing products, but there's a certain amount of feature overlap that might otherwise discourage owners of these products to buy it. In this case I think it makes sense to give them a small discount.
