Steinberg HALion Symphonic Orchestra
Easy install no problem

Steinberg has increased since String Edition ...

the manual is amber, but it is quite

my only disappointment is that this is an Upgrade which the key is tied a string edition 2, and my goal was to distribute the weight of two soft on my computer .... It is not possible well.


Config: see my profile

works well in the sift or the cubase, I have been turned on with the Dell juli @ and it is OK on this computer I-3GB of RAM needed to run any ...

the transition to circumvent the problem of memory limited to 2GB per app on windows if you throw an additional instance of HSO in rewire and VST is not as recognized as distncte application ... So it's better, the same is true for Reason for example, or the great ... it makes no difference in CPU ...

for now, except to nag a tutti unison with a bit of everything at once is stable, otherwise it takes a little or a power cycle in the corresponding VSTplug.

I did not crash with untimely.


A month of sporadic use, j'ain had some free time ...

The +: HSE2 as easy to use complicated programming ... NOT and sounds good after all. The opposite of MSI: the basics and just that, but well done. (*)

The -: HSE2 as the weight but what else, more if the decreasing value for money and not increase, contrary to what I wrote on the forum, stupid sounds added are not the same level as the strings I regret the absence of the XFADE tutti notement brass, yet they are well prepared to this subterfuge, corns and other ... XSWITCh and it's different ...

(*) Of stroke between the soft, MSI and Reason in me using their highly complementary Ispos I started this after which I run for over a year ... A band.

the strings really good, varied and effective and easy

brass and wood well but not as sober and searched the strings ...

The percussion: not very detailed if you think of a real orchestra, but alternatives are also ... A good place for gathering Combi TAMTAM Gran Cassa + + Snare + drum + triangle sound, that m ' so annoyed that MSI did not think ...

I remake it safely select and would probably not buy MSI if it had existed at the time ... the two together at once ... For those who have already purchased HSE2 no hesitation possible.

PS: TRADE IN Steinberg offers about 350 € for possessurs MSI is cheaper andTHE two together is downright luxurious and comprehensive ...

The site amenities are simple, everything is done automatically. on the other hand is a bit long to install the contents of four DVDs (27 GB of sounds).


I use it on a Toshiba laptop Intel Centrino Duo.

It works perfectly with Cubase SE1.
It's very simple to use, you load the sounds and playing.
the sounds are very good qualities and functions Key Switches are great for working the expression of instruments without having to use multiple tracks for the same party.


I use it for about a month and it's going beyond my expectations.

It's a bit complicated to implement to make it sound realistic. In fact, should be put in terms of an orchestra sound and not in terms of a keyboardist / home studio. I just played out that it takes a lot of the velocities, the crescendos and expression to make it as realistic as possible.

It can be also because of my meager musical culture in the field of classical music. It must (re) dive a little to have the best record possible.

In any case, it can surely make great things with a little practice and inspiration.

Steinberg HALion Symphonic Orchestra
Purchased software used an individual, with transfer of the license and the key ...
Big problems with the key .... Posts incongruous ...
No response to emails ...
When I finally got to have someone on the phone (be very persistent and patient, I found an incredible incompetence! Also I did not like the original bill, and despite the terms of the license, they do not want to answer!!
Not only does not protect the key from scratch (see specialized sites and key and software sold in the eyes and for all the world (see for example ...)) ebay but it does make more computers than music! !
The after-sales'm not!
So think before you buy! If it is to make music, do not buy Steinberg!!


Need I say more!


Report usage / price deplorable!
When you get it to work, we no longer want to stay in front of the screen!
And one wonders how it's done on the day when the key does not work anymore (it is only Electronics ...
