Touch The Universe has released the Celestial Spheres Sound Library, a hybrid synth/samples library containing 438 presets fusing pure synthesis and 3.55GB of multi-samples (including original Nord Lead 2 samples) for HALion 6, HALion Sonic 3, and the free HALion Player, HALion Sonic SE.
The library infuses nearly every type of sound engine within HALion 6, the multi-sampler, granular, wavetable, and synth engines, using unique and original sound sources. The multi-samples were key-mapped spanning on average about every 4 or 5 keys, though in some situations, every key is mapped. They were then programmed and enhanced in HALion with added filters, effects and macros. Nearly every patch also blends in live synthesis to keep things even more alive and interesting, using any of HALion's synth engines: Auron, Trium, Skylab, Voltage and Anima.
The patches themselves are diverse, some are simple and elegant, while being highly unique, while others are vastly more complex and evolving -- layering many multi-samples instruments with other granular or wavetable instruments alongside still other layers of live synthesis. In addition, the library includes over 85 presets made from sound sources from a Nord Lead 2 hardware synthesizer.
