Steinberg Halion String Edition 2
The sounds are not living up to my expectations (nonexistent joints)

it is inconsistent (pb display and stability) with cubase 7.5 64

I resolved to say goodbye. replaced by eastwest products.

more from the start some banks never find the samples! where Mr. Steinberg is the bouquet !!!

over purchase of Steinberg VST instrument except in the largest

Steinberg Halion String Edition 2
The installation is simple, what normal
To date no incompatibility
Config? y'en no particulirement and Cubase is like home
the manual is clear and sufficient


PIV 3ghz 4gb ram audiophile usb + FIREPOD

same with my 4GB too many samples and plant, if a can go

is stable, that if a plant is right away or not ...


Few months of use ...

The +: report good to excellent with no programming ncessaire, so jouabilitbr />
the -: sr too much heaviness, but what else?

I rconcili with the music home with Reason and I wanted to do better with MSI, aye ... Violins not good, not what I wanted ... So back on the fundamental string with this edition. was better now.

report quality price: correct without more, the software costs money!

I think I would do this choice and look to see what ue worth the orchestra version

Steinberg Halion String Edition 2
Installation is simple, say anything ...


I use it with Logic Audio Platinum 5.3, PC (Pentium 4, 3.4 GB, sound card motu traveler).
Warning the config, if you do not have a mini gig of ram, forget: like most virtual instruments based samples, it is extremely delicious and very high risk of frustration, because we want to tr s quickly open multiple tracks!
Personally, on my config, after a moment in the session, the sounds cut the cost. In this case I close my logic and I raise, and here we go again ...


I use it for a year and a half, and I'm classically trained. What m'clate really is the quality of sound. I compltement sduit by the sets, as well as sections-desks (violins, violas, cellos and double basses). But what I dish the most, and that's the whole diffrence with version 1 software, are the solo versions of each instrument. It vritablement poustoufflant!
A very small, however BMOL to the management of the legato that is absolutely necessary "work" with the reverb on pain of lack of crdibilit.
However, the exceptional quality of the samples made the difference.

You need a Steinberg Key (such as a USB key) to install it completely. So I bought a Steinberg Key.
You need a internet connection to install. So I was in an internet cafe.
But the software for the right to download the license (which allows you to install Halion string edition) is outdated. Hum hum. It is therefore necessary to download, install, download the license on the Steinberg Key, return home and resume the installation. Nothing is easier, of course! even worse than the beats of Trip Builder in Native Instru ...
Otherwise, once crossed these barriers, it is ok. No inconsistency.

I do not really understand why with Sonar (I have version 4 producer), insert the Dxi with all tracks (for other DXi, the first will do).

otherwise the book is very well done.


2.4 Gh (or nearby, I do not know) 1 MB of RAM
sound card m audio delta audiophile 24/96 (live asio drivers)
Well, it's just normal, the more you put, the more it wins. I use tools like the strings arrangement, no major (with a dozen audio tracks at the base, I will not be able to add 10 more stringed instruments).


I've had two weeks. I tested quickly by Kompakt.
Halion is better. guitaiste as there is a range of movements (legato, spiccato, portamento etc etc) that I find interesting but that will require some time to tame them.

But the sounds are relatively artificial, it depends on the programs. In the bumps, in the end it can be good.

It's still expensive, I expected that all artificial sounds are left with soft drinks cheap.

7 months after use, I confirm what I posted. In fact, it is mainly the conventional use strings that have an artificial sound. Those corresponding to the solos are very good for an ex track No. 11.
