Postby Sampleconstruct; Sat Apr 01, 2017 10:16 am Just released on patchpool: Cornucopia for HALion 6

Image

Cornucopia for HALion 6 provides a wealth of predominantly wavetable-based patches, all wavetables were be produced exclusively for this sound library by re-synthesizing dozens of samples from various acoustic instruments (string instruments, woodwinds, brass), vocals, percussion and electronic textures.
The sounds focus on warm and moving pads, dark and epic drones, digital hybrids, animated sequences, profound bass and pluck sounds, cinematic textures and soundscapes, crispy mallets and obscure sound effects. Some patches also layer the wavetable synth with Halion's granular and/or sampling engine, some patches also make use of Halion's analog synth, a few patches only use the granular and/or sampling oscillators. All presets have a designed Macro interface with a background image, more complex modulation routings are sometimes also assigned to the eight Quick Controls at the bottom of the main interface and the modulation wheel, quite a few presets also make use of aftertouch.

The wav-samples in Cornucopia are a mixture of field recordings, soprano sax tones and phrases, a huge gong recorded open air in a garden, tubular chimes (also recorded in that garden), electronic soundscapes, multi-sampled synth sounds and experimental electronic textures. All wavetables are embedded in the preset files, yet an additional folder with all wavetables used in Cornucopia (plus some extra ones) is included in the download folder, so that the user can easily create new patches using these tables.

You can view/download the PDF for this soundlibrary including the license agreement, more relevant info and a detalled patchlist here.

Specifications:
    *103 tagged presets
    *155 wavetables (153.1 MB, also available in a separate folder for easy access).
    *769.9 MB of original samples (67 wavs / 48 Khz / 24 Bit / stereo)
    *Library size in total (with all assets): 1.03 GB
    *Delivery: download (compressed RAR-archive, download size: 768.5 MB).
    *Price: € 42 EUR.
    *The full version of HALion 6 is required to play the patches from this library.
    *Please note: With the current release version of HALion 6, all tempo-synced envelopes programmed for this library play out of sync with the DAW and other HALion modulators (step modulator/LFOs). This is a known issue and will be fixed with the first maintenance update of HALion (version 6.0.1), to be released very soon.

Product page.

All demos were produced entirely with HALion 6 using only patches from Cornucopia, no post-processing was applied apart from a limiter on the outputs and some volume automation, if several instances of HALion were used in a track.

Here is a Youtube playlist with video demos for this library and other wavetable experiments which led to the creation of this sound libray. There is also a tutorial for the wavetable synth towards the bottom of the list.

Thanks for reading.

Demo video for a wave-sequencer from Cornucopia, tweaking the assigned Macros and Quick Controls on the fly, modulation wheel for pitch sequencing is automated. Wave-sequencing in the two zones via two step modulators (32 steps), each zone using a different wavetable extracted from speech samples. Synced formant/filter modulation via random LFO, synced amplitude modulation via filter envelopes, synced pitch sequencing via pitch envelope (assigned to modulation wheel), synced pan modulation via another LFO.

Two instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia, some Macro and modulation wheel action in both instances. The bell-like drone sound uses wavetables extracted from a gong accent, the other one a WT extracted from bamboo chimes layered with an analog Halion synth.

Demo for a hybrid patch from Cornucopia, combining a tempo-synced granular soprano sax sequence (sampled in two octaves, the lower one is 8 bars long, the higher 4 bars, synced ramp LFO modulates grain position) with a wavetable synth which uses a tempo-synced wavetable sequence extracted from the sax loop in the lower octave (synced ramp LFO modulates wavetable position). The “Diffuse“-Quick Control randomizes grain position, increases grain length, spreads/randomizes the waveforms in the WT synth and transforms the sound into a beautiful tonal soundscape. Two types of filter modulation can be dialed in, synced amplitude for the sax sequences can be added, MW detunes the grains and the WT synth (unison detune), pitch offset for the granular zones can be dialed in with a QC, +/- 1 octave with the control fully engaged.

Plenty of Macro and modulation wheel automation going on in the demo, Halion rocks!

Improvising with an ambient patch from Cornucopia, some Macro and modwheel action.

Patch description:
Multi-sampled tonal soundscape sampled at 3 pitches (C2 – C3 – C5) layered with a WT synth using a WT extracted from one of the scapes. Each layer has it’s dedicated volume control, 4 granular controls are available for grain speed/grain position control via AT/ grain perforation/grain spread, fast wavetable position modulation can be introduced via QC7. The interface provides more Macros for WT speed, WT flanger mix, phased/delay/reverb FX. MW randomizes grain pitch and increases WT unison detune.

Dreamy ambient music featuring two wavetable patches from Cornucopia (English Horn Pad/Glass Drone) - some Macro and modulation wheel action in both instances.

Demo for another wavetable patch from Cornucopia, the wavetable was extracted from an Angkelung tremolo with accel/rit - the available Macros and the modulation wheel are automated (LogicX).

Smooth ambient demo with two instances of HALion 6 using presets from Cornucopia, both patches layer granulated soprano sax sounds with wavetable synths - some Macro and modulation wheel action in one instance.

Improvising with a drone patch from Cornucopia, the wavetables used in all three oscillators were extracted from a celtic harp glissando.

Improvising with a hybrid patch from Cornucopia which combines a wavetable synth with a granular oscillator. The WT synth is using a WT extracted from a soprano sax flageolet sample, layered with the granulated version of that sample, an LFO is slowly modulating grain position, grain speed is set to zero.

Sounds fantastic.....as usual! Simon, any chance that you will be porting this over to Falcon in the future? Falcon continues to grow on me, so I may not ever see the need to go over to Halion. Keep up the awesome work! :tu:

Thanks man - I can't port these to Falcon as HALion 6 uses it's own wavetable format which is not compatible with the outside world. So none of these wavetables can be used outside of Halion. That's why I am focussing mainly on wavetable patches in Cornucopia, as the approach to WT synthesis in Halion 6 sounds so good and unique. If it had been a library focussing mainly on sampling and granular synthesis I would have chosen Falcon from the start.
