    Watch how to reinforce the sound of the multi-program built in this course by including the HALion instrument Haliotron.

HALion 5 is the latest and greatest virtual sampling instrument from Steinberg, allowing for deep, complex patch and sound creation. Let Steinberg guru Mark Struthers take you on a trip to planet HALion, where you'll learn how to wrap your mind around HALion 5's design and make a killer patch from scratch!

Mark starts with a lesson on creating your first HALion patch, and demystifies the elements used to construct the finished patch. Then Mark shows you how to "zone out", choosing from the different available zone types and then developing them further using oscillators and synth envelopes.

Next, Mark gives a deeper look into the HALion editors, additional oscillators such as noise and further filter adjustments. Adding effects is then explored, including how create effect busses, manage effect presets, combining multiple effects, doubling zones for richer sounds, using layers, the Modulation Matrix and more.

Wrapping up your HALion journey, Mark explains how to adapt samples so that an area within them continuously loops to allow for sustained playback, as well as how to integrate an existing 'HALion' Granular Synth preset and strip it down so that it can be used in your own multi-program.

If you're new to HALion 5 and want to make your own sounds and presets, this is the series to watch. Check out "HALion 5 - From Scratch to Patch" today.

Halion 5 Tutorial

The speaker has no understanding of what makes good dialogue.. he is pedantic and patronising and wastes time stating the obvious when there are important areas that could have been dealt with (like multi-sampling and Key Switches). Annoying lack of clarity.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

Having a father with a recording studio and having played guitar since being a 14 year old kid, I quickly got into recording. But, the purchase of a Tascam 244 Portastudio was a breakthrough in realizing what I wanted to do.

2. What training have you had?

I taught myself to play guitar and keyboards and found it a remarkably calming and mathematical experience learning the rules of intervals within a scale and how they can take you to any chord.

3. When did you get into recording?

The purchase of the cassette based Tascam 244 lasted a fair few years until I moved up to a Roland VS880 which then linked in to building a purpose built commercial multimedia studio around 15 years ago mainly running Steinberg and Adobe software.

4. People you have worked with/for?

Thankfully, nobody famous enough to have an ego. Instead 100's of happy Joe Public clients.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

My degree is in English and Teaching and I was a grammar school teacher for over 10 years before changing direction and working solely from my studio. recording music and filming for clients.
