AlanForPresident's review"presets!"

Steinberg Hypersonic
One of the things that made me fall in love with Hypersonic was how many sounds and presets it has. Not just that either, the quality of those sounds and presets and that it has them all broke down into proper categories so you don’t have to do too much searching for the sounds you are looking for.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

It runs great with FL Studio and doesn’t crash or cause any problems to my desktop computer. I have been using Hypersonic for years and it continues to get used, even though I have upgraded to the newest version now. Everything with Hypersonic works great and no manual is needed because its that easy to understand.
But since its that easy to understand means that there wasn’t enough options for me as far as editing the sounds and adding effects to them. With each sound that you load up only gives you a few options to change , you cant edit all the parameters like you can in a lot of other vst’s that are used.


OVERALL OPINION

I think Hypersonic is a great software plug in with high quality sounds and im glad that I purchased it. I also happy the sounds are as good as they are right from the presets because if they weren’t you wouldn’t be able to change to much about them because there arent any options to really dig deep into editing the sounds. This was the first version of Hypersonic that came out and I think they made a great impression with this one and it even made me get the upgrade (hypersonic 2) not too long ago. Good thing is you will have a ton of sounds to go through and it will take you a while to use most of them! I am not sure If you can actually still get this version of hypersonic though since version 2 is being sold.

DJ Henny's review"All purpose VST with some flaws."

Steinberg Hypersonic
The VST installed with no problems and was easy to initially configure. In my opinion this is the entry level VST of choice. Most people entering production want a plethora of sounds available to them in an instant and this VST has pretty much nearly every type of sound available. That does not mean that the quality is the best available though. The library is easily accessible through the browser and is arranged in categories for ease of use. Ths library is versatile and has a wide range of sounds available, with around 1500 presets. There is a wide range of effects available to add to each sound too, as well as quick mapping of effects to the modulation wheel.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

This VST has worked pretty much all the time with Ableton and FL Studio, although it can be prone to causing crashes when certain sounds do not load correctly. I have been using this VST with FL Studio for roughly 2 years and it has been a mainstay in my music for all that time. The loading times of the sintruments is near instant, and is unbeatable by any VST i've ever used.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, I find that Hypersonic 1 is a very good entry level VST plugin for anybody looking for a quick entry into production. It's accessibility is perfect for the amateur and still has sounds worthy of most productions of a veteran. The only thing I'd have against it is some of the sounds being remarkably tacky and thin, sounding almost midi. The drums are also a huge let down as they do not sound anywhere near realistic enough to be used in a real song. I would reccomend this VST to anybody looking for quick access to sounds and I would buy it still if I knew what I knew now.

For the most part the features are very similar to those you would find in a keyboard workstation. Sounds can be tweaked to your liking, as can the onboard effects, which are great. It's 16 part multi-timbral just like my Trinity was.

Price paid

$279.99

Extremely easy to use. One look at the GUI and you already know where everything is. I love the ease of use, low cpu load and quick loading of sounds.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I love the sounds in Hypersonic. I bought it to replace my Korg Trinity workstation. The sounds are what you would expect from such a workstation, but in a VSTi. Even the drums in this are nice and immediately useable, which is a welcome change from the usual workstation drum presets.

It's a soft synth so durability doesn't really apply, except in the case of the USB dongle which, if not careful, can break easily.

OVERALL OPINION

I definitely love Hypersonic, and use it as my main workstation VSTi. I use it in all my compositions now.

This is a Softsynth, and has all the feature a softsynth can have. Only wish they gave more control over each individual patch....but the controls they give you are good enough to get the job done. They hypernobs provide settings on the fly, which prevent you from having to switch screens often. You can even created your own "COMBIS", or kits for on the fly kits when you need. I have created several stock DRUMKITS this way. Plus, it doesn't eat up resources maliciously as VST's are known to do.

Price paid

$199 (Used)

This is by far the best interface I have used in a softsynth, or a workstation keyboard. It is so easy to use it is ridiculous. The learning curve is quick, settings load on the fly, and the CPU usage is very small. The HYPERNOBS are the best part of this Softsynth, as they allow you to make quick EQ, Change of Instrument, effects, and ATTACK, RELEASE, AND Velocities. Allows for sixteen channels...all which can be linked to one another with one click of your mouse, without even going into a settings menu! What other Softsynth can say that?

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The sound quality is top notch...the patches were programmed well, with different characteristics of instruments detailed....things like Piano velocity, the hardness of piano keys, the range of piano sound...etc. Love the Drums...some of the cleareast on a VST I've ever used. You barely even have to EQ!

Well, I can't rate it's durability. Quality wise, it's the best all around softsynth in my opinion. Quick load time, low cpu usage, on the fly edits, and easy links to combo instruments make this one powerful tool for any DAW. I highly recommend anyone to take a look at it.

OVERALL OPINION

If you can't tell already, I love this VST. Works with any program that supports VST's...at least the ones I've used. Combo this with Nuendo and a powerful computer, and you've got urself one bad DAW. I can now spend more time creating, and less time navigating.

Got damn there's some much shyt you can do wit the sounds, I still don't know all of it. You can stack instruments on top of each other, add built in effects, change various parameters of the sounds, and so much more. I still want to figure out all of it.

Price paid

$299.99

It's easy. Just load up Hypersonic, search for a sound you want to use, double click it, and you're ready to go.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

This has some of the best acoustic instruments in a VSTi, BUT, I was disappointed in some of the piano patches. That and mad solo brass patches and other acoustic instruments weren't realistic enough for me. Sound quality ranges from lush, realistic and very usable, to cheap free Soundfont quality. But to me, one of the best things about Hypersonic are the synth sounds that come with it. IMO, they better than some dedicated VSTi synths. Also I wish there was more of a selection of sounds. Overall tho, I was very impressed.

Never had any problems with it.

OVERALL OPINION

I love this thing, I just wish Steinberg had focused more on the sounds.

Steinberg Hypersonic
No
no incompatibilitbr /> very very easy
no need to read the manual

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

My config: Core Duo 2.17 2 GB RAM, 2TB of storage, edirol cs
Expander is a general who is a disarming simplicity and use it as a steinberg, you can choose the sounds to the left of Cubase (when a lot of expanders is good.

OVERALL OPINION

It must be 3 years that I have, at the beginning that he and I had my old yamaha mu 90 branch in midi and yes I use it less and less.
I had not tried before in soft, that's hard (canvas, M1, D110, U110 ...)
The report price is not good quality, too expensive
Sounds: Piano average sound, electric bad, abominable organ, bass not bad but you have to work the qualisation, the drum is a comic and cs, but the cymbals and not hh, violins and brass are bad, in terms of acoustic guitar (nylon arpeggios), the electric was going in the background, sounds synthtrs many) not bad. You will say that there is not much good and I will reply that we must see hypersonic as a "Swiss knife" ebrch qqchose can make it sound not too bad a midifile (n ' use or violin or organ) but it's really Exceeds is very convenient but it does not move is not good.
But like all of its generators "steinberg" it is to learn and APRS should look elsewhere (Cakewalk drum session for the battery is cheap and good for the Pianoteq piano trilogy for low sample tank for the violins and the brass I'm still looking)

Of course I would do not elect

No problem installing, everything is very simple, you just have to be guided ...
The manual? Not read ... :-)

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

HP PAVILION Firewire 410 1.5 GHz
No problem, the plug is very delicious, even with my config I have never failed to CPU during the composition of songs with hypersonic (for mixing is a little different but the plug has nothing to do!)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for about a year and what I like most is the eclecticism of his bank, for me that makes it practical to mix hiphop styles.
Yes I have tried many things before but a lot of free plugs then say that the difference in price.
The price may be a bit high but compared to the competition I think not moaning ......
This choice I would do without hesitation and even try to buy the second version.

- Worry-free installation, a walk away
- No incompatibilitbr /> - easy to use, it has a trs Koman walk faster

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

My pc: P4 2.6, Asus P4PE CM-X, 512 MB RAM, 2 dd 20 and 40 GB, Sound Card Digigram VX222
Hypersonic works without problem, it pumps a lot of resources, with many enjoyable sounds ... Super stable

OVERALL OPINION

I've had eight months, I had the time to use it before giving my opinion.
All sounds are all tops, but in each menu, one can find much c'k'on wants, and for some instruments it is necessary to rework his ke sounds better, compression, delay and reverb. I too AIM to effects be inserted instruments, reverb too Submitted ...
Qualitprix, I would say not bad, but it's better than everyone hypercanvas to judge if he could fall further, would be a better, a little CHRE even for me.
If I had to buy it? so carefree, it's an all in one effective but must be searched to find the right sound, wide range. I like it ...
