    Full sonic power
    A powerful multi-timbral audio engine with disk-streaming sample playback, a tone-wheel organ simulator and high-end virtual analogue and granular synthesis — HALion Sonic 2 offers a staggering level of sonic variety, with everything you need to bring your musical ideas to fruition. From ultra-realistic sample-based instruments to out-of-this-world granular textures, the HALion Sonic 2 audio engine delivers at the highest level.
    Studio and Stage
    With its ease-of-use, absolute stability and pristine audio quality, HALion Sonic 2 has been designed to excel in the studio as well as on stage. HALion Sonic 2 is a true virtual workstation with 16 instrument slots each loaded with presets that can be routed to the 16 stereo outs and saved as Multi presets for your next performance. Create keyboard splits and switch to the dedicated player view for live performances. The included stand-alone version lets you launch HALion Sonic 2 outside of your DAW for use as a quick access scratch pad: the metronome and record functions mean you'll be ready when inspiration strikes.
    Performance advantage
    With its reliability and dazzling audio quality, HALion Sonic 2 not only meets the requirements of professionals today, but also provides the best-sounding audio engine ever to be developed by Steinberg. Featuring multi-core support, the efficiency provided by sample compression technology and the RAM Save Mode, HALion Sonic 2 is the new creative powerhouse at the heart of your production.
    New instruments
    HALion Sonic 2 features eight new stunning instruments with over 1,000 new sounds and presets that will fuel your creativity in new ways: stunning new synths rub shoulders with premier acoustic instruments, while the inspiring new drum rhythms will drive your creativity to new heights. HALion Sonic 2 also adds the intriguing sonic possibilities of granular synthesis, as well as an astonishingly authentic new tone-wheel organ. And to keep things simple, each instrument has a Macro page for direct access.
    New effects
    HALion Sonic 2 introduces 9 sumptuous new effects: Crank out great guitar tone with the famed VST Amp from Cubase, get funky with the new Wah-Wah and generate freaky new soundscapes with Auto Filter. Heat up your digital recordings with the Tape Saturator, and get creative with the dark textures and spooky soundscapes of the Ring Modulator. And if that's not enough, the Step Flanger, Vintage Ensemble, Envelope Shaper and Octaver will give you all the creative options you'll ever need for FX.
    FlexPhraser revised
    FlexPhraser now sports a new user mode that opens up new sonic horizons! Create your own patterns and phrases with the new user phrase editor, letting you set velocity and pitch for sounds in up to 32 steps, while harnessing the additional power of two controller lanes driving even more parameters like filters and effects. Existing MIDI files can even be imported to quantise the arpeggiator to an existing groove, and phrases exported to Cubase as MIDI files for further editing!
