AFAIK, and I may be wrong, there's no way to route them to any aspect of the organ zone or any of the effects and so I'm assuming that they're useful in some patches for the various sample layers. None that I've looked at, however, seem to make use of them. I'm new to Halion, so I may be looking in the wrong place. Just trying to figure how deep she goes :)
It's probably because LFO3/4 are part of the furniture as polyphonic modulators (compared to the monophonic LFO1/2). LFO3/4 happen to live separately in the UI from LFO1/2, which turn up in the zones, so don't disappear when the zone is set to the organ mode. Normally, you'd map them through the mod matrix but a Model C layer doesn't have a mod matrix, so....

Thanks, yes they said it about 5 minutes in.
Hoping you have an upgrade summer sale.
It isn't that it isn't worth the $99, but since you guys haven't followed ilok's two authorisations (yet anyway) I will have to buy two upgrades.

Do I need to install both the Halionsonic and Halion ones or does the Halion one cover both (as is usually the case)?

I went to the site but can't find anything so I must be looking in the wrong place, obviously. My question is, what product qualifies someone for the crossgrade offer?

If you have Kontakt or Komplete, you are qualified. The products are listed, but they're not easy to find. I believe that Omni and Mach 5 are also on the list.

You do need to send them some proof of ownership/purchase.

And just what would qualify as proof of purchase? Omni and Komplete I bought at Sam Ash and have no idea what I did with the sales receipts. I don't even think I kept the boxes though I do have the DVDs still.

This is what works as proof of purchase: https://www.steinberg.net/en/shop/crossgrades.html

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.
