My favorite software sampler
Halion has come a long way since its first release and now one of the best software samplers and sound design softwares on the market. Halion 5 looks and sounds great, you have so many options, and with the draggable windows you can concentrate on one specific window or multiple windows on multiple screens if you choose to, no complicated scripting to deal with, just a what you see what you get type interface.
The sounds are realistic sounding, and if you are into guitars, look no further Halion 5 has some of the best acoustic and electric sounding guitars in its default library. 8 new instruments with the 15gb library of presets already included, It is very easy to record, design and drag and drop samples right into Halion to easily build your own personal sounds.
New slicing mode, new midi modules, the ability to use midi files within 8 slots new effects, omg thank you Steinberg, Halion has 5 has just become my favorite software sampler and I own many of the sftware hybrid and hardware samplers.
