This beast is so packed with usefulness you won't be able to absorb it all at first, theres alot of presets, and they're all very nice. I would say the highlights are the guitars (lead and bass), acoustic bass, and the strings. The pianos/keyboards are also very nice, although in some piano presets you can sometimes tell that its synthesised (but i have been playing piano since i was born).

The Drum Kits really blew me away, I was expecting that side of the product to be neglected, but no its extremely diverse and useful, makes creating beats 10,000 times easier. Only grudge i have with the sound is the brass and woodwinds, it doesn't sound as real as say the edirol orchestral. This is why i gave 'sound' a score of 9.

The onboard effects ARE good, and fairly efficient on CPU. The interface is VERY VERY VERY straightforward, one of the most easy to use VSTis. I didn't even need to peek at the manuals. This is very useful, there are 6 large knobs which change according to the instrument you are playing, this makes for JOYFULLY EASY EDITING, i'm telling you that is a really welcome feature. Eg. on elect guitars you can tweak the drive/fuzz/fret-noise/wah-speed, and on a drum kit you can adjust the filter/resonance/kick/snare level. These 6 knobs can be super quickly be assigned to a different CC#. Searching patches is a damn BREEZE too.

I feel like i'm using one of those really expensive workstations like the triton etc. but with the ease and beautiful GUI of a PC VSTi. This is a very good creation from steinberg and wizoo. They have my respect for this!

I would love to buy a copy of this, if anyone is selling. I am on a Mac and it's impossible to find a used copy. Please contact me if you know where to get one. :)

Buy Halion Sonic and you will obtain a legal license for Hypersonic 2.

Halion Sonic has new higher quality versions of almost every acoustic instrument sample added in Hypersonic 2, as well as several HS 1 instruments.

Don't waste your time with Hypersonic.

The Halion Sonic versions have every note sampled, many more velocity layers and multiple articulations. The weakest sounds from Hypersonic 2 have been replaced with sounds from the Yamaha Motif XF.
