Steinberg releases Trial version of HALion 4

Steinberg Media Technologies has released the trial version of HALion 4. The 60-day trial version is available through the Steinberg website and requires a USB-eLicenser dongle. The full retail version of HALion 4 is available through the Steinberg Online Shop and authorized Steinberg resellers for €349, including German VAT, and £295, including British VAT.

Combining sampling and synthesis technologies with mixing options, its unique morphing filter and FlexPhraser arpeggiator, the enhanced MegaTrig tool, more than 40 studio-grade effects and a vast library that spans over 1,600 sounds make HALion 4 an eminently powerful virtual instrument. HALion’s most prominent advantage is possibly the implementation of VST 3.5, with its innovative Note Expression for editing expression data polyphonically.
