After some very intense weeks of sounddesign work, I am happy to announce the release of my first sound- and sample library for Steinberg's HALion 5.

Sonic Cinema for HALion 5

Image

This sound library comprises dozens of cinematic soundscapes, evocative pads and musical textures designed for producing epic soundtracks, ambient music and anything that needs inspiring sonic ingredients beyond the ordinary.

Sonic Cinema also contains dark cinematic brass instruments made with/derived from sampled instruments like the sousaphone, trombone, euphonium and french horn which were exclusively multisampled for this library, mainly in a dry studio environment. Some of the french horn recordings were conducted in a church.

Then there are also sounds in this library made with/derived from a multisampled acoustic guitar played with an electric bow and you will find some beautiful and otherworldly chime and glass sounds. Scraped Tamtam sounds add another mysterious dimension to this sound collection. Some playful and complex sequencers as well as some metal impact sounds derived from field recordings complete the sonic picture.

The 92 patches combine HALions outstanding granular engine, the normal sampling mode and the very versatile synth module. Eight Macros and the Modwheel are programmed for each preset which enables the user to deeply interact with the sounds, many patches also use Aftertouch, Sphere-modulation and keyswitches. FlexPhrasers and Trigger Pads were used to create the arp and sequencer patches.

Sonic Cinema is distributed as a HALion vstsound-archive for the sample content and tagged vst-presets.

Specifications:
  • * 92 instruments/presets.
    * 3.18 Gigabyte of samples (48 khz/ 24 Bit / stereo).
    * All acoustic instrument-samples in this library were recorded with 3 Neumann microphones in L-C-R at 48 Khz/24 Bit, a U87 as the center mic and a stereo set of
    KM 184 for L-R.
    * Delivery: download - RAR-archive in 4 parts for better download handling.
    * Download size: 2.42 GB - fast download speeds guaranteed.
You can view/download the PDF for this library with more details, the licence agreement, screenshots and an extensive patchlist here.

Please note: the full version of HALion 5 is required to play the patches from this library.

Price (paypal): € 59 EUR

All demos below were produced entirely with HALion 5 using only patches from Sonic Cinema, 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. Two of the demos use 3rd party reverb, this is mentioned in the track title.

Some videos with patches from this library, there are about 20 videos altogether on the product page.

Whoaa, I'm up and running with Sonic Cinema, and just three patches down the list and I'm very impressed. I had not really looked that much at Halion 5 but sifting around the possibilities and I can see this is a deep deep creative tool, which you have found a lot of interesting ways to exploit..

Thanks for your great work Simon!
waves break, but somehow it all makes sense.

The trick is to realize there is no spoon. That's when you'll know you have been truly swindled.

yep, I got the links last night fairly late. I didn't notice until this morning. On the up side, it is Friday ... so I have a good amount of time to dig in.

I see, I sent them out shortly after 7 in the morning here after working on the missing preset tags the whole night, so you must be somewhere at the east coast then.

Sleepless nights can lead to calm impros, here is one I just did using the Sonic cinema patch "Ebow Estrings Split KS" - live on tape so to speak:

The demo collection was missing some sequenced/temposynced sounds, so here is a track combining several patches:
