Steinberg has announced the immediate availability of HALion Sonic / HALion Sonic SE 1.6 and HALion 4.5.2, the latest updates to Steinberg's HALion family.

The updated HALion Sonic versions introduce true multi-core support and now feature the superior MorphFilter audio effect in the FX section. Plus, HALion Sonic 1.6 comes with a convenient multi-loading option. The HALion 4.5.2 update resolves several user-reported issues.

HALion 4.5.2

Improvements & issues resolved:

  • Export: The option to "cancel" the export of a multi/VST Sound while exporting has been added.

HALion Sonic 1.6

Improvements:

  • Multi-core support: This update introduces true multi-core support. A single HALion Sonic instance can now access all CPU cores and make perfect use of the power available inside your computer. A new preference on the options page allows you to choose how many cores can be employed by HALion Sonic. This is helpful to control the performance available to HALion Sonic in order to properly share cores with other applications, such as Cubase and Nuendo.
  • Multi-loading option:The new multi-program loading option lets you specify whether a multi-program is to be cleared before loading a new multi-program or if it is to be kept in RAM.
  • Slot numbers are now available for automation channels.
  • A new key command window has been added.
  • Phrase selector dialog in FlexPhraser has been improved.
  • Morph Filter audio effect has been added.
  • A customized "Start-up" program can be saved.
