Postby MatthiasQ; Thu Nov 01, 2012 6:51 am Steinberg releases Absolute VST Instrument Collection

Steinberg is excited to announce the Absolute VST Instrument Collection, a powerful package with six of Steinberg's greatest VST instruments. Consisting of HALion Sonic, Padshop Pro, Retrologue, Hypnotic Dance, Triebwerk and Dark Planet, the Absolute VST Instrument Collection offers thousands of sounds, advanced technology and state-of-the-art sound design at a fantastic price.

Best of all, Hypnotic Dance, Triebwerk and Dark Planet are now powered by dedicated HALion engines and run independently under any VST 3, VST 2 and AU compatible hosts.

Image

HALion Sonic is Steinberg's premier VST workstation, featuring the latest sampling and synthesis technologies, a world-class library and an intelligent user interface that excels in the studio as well as on stage.

Image

Padshop Pro introduces a new way of granular sound design. Get yourself ready for out-of-this-world atmospheres and far-out effects. Padshop Pro comes with the Zero Gravity Expansion Pack that includes 250 new presets and a fully loaded SoftGrain Wave ROM.

Image

Retrologue offers old-school analog synth sounds and biting sonic blocks and is ideal for creating fat and funky lead and bass sounds.

Image

Hypnotic Dance is a treasure trove for electronic music producers with solid bass lines, cutting leads and beautifully textured pads.

Image

Triebwerk is the go-to choice for club-worthy dance sounds including soaring synths, four-to-the-floor drum kits and queasy vocals.

Image

Dark Planet is best-suited for cinematic scores and musical excursions, comprising creepy sounds, shattering loops and eerie instruments.

Image

The Absolute VST Instrument Collection is now available from Steinberg resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop. For users of Cubase 6.5 and Cubase Artist 6.5 Steinberg is offering a special download version* at a reduced price.

The demo versions are a bit of a mess.
I've had problems with the demos of Dark Planet and Triebwerk and to a lesser extent Hypnotic Dance.
I installed all 3 at the same time. All 3 show up as VST instruments but the sounds are missing for Dark Planet and Triebwerk and none of the 3 are listed in Halion 4/Halion Sonic as they should be.

I get this error in the VST version of both Dark Planet and Triebwerk:

Hypnotic Dance is listed in Halion 4 but no presets:

Hi telogic,
Yes I tried re-scanning everything but no luck.
They are supposed to work as extensions for Halion definitely.

For all of you still having trouble loading the instruments in HALion and HALion Sonic, please install the latest updates.

Here is the link:

And check out the tutorial from professional music producer (Defected/Strictly Rhythm etc) & Point Blank Course Creator Danny Lewis to get to know the VST instruments in the Absolute Collection better.

Why do the owners of the cheap Cubase get a special price and I, who have bought the much more expensive Nuendo have to pay full ?

Steinberg marketing at its best.

Hi Rasmusklump,

Cubase 6.5 and 7 users get a dedicated cheaper version, because they already own Retrologue and Padshop. If you own the Nuendo NEK with Padshop and Retrologue you can also purchase at the special price. I guess that is only fair.
