Very good

It is as title Programming, lot of deep inside. Maybe to little about the internal functions as flex flexphraser, trigger and so on.

Great tut reveals what a great synth this thing really is.

This has been quite a revelation for me. I've only previously watched the YouTube intros from Steinberg about Halion6, which are interesting enough, but had never left me feeling I quite got any part of this amazing device, just caught glimpses, and never got drawn in. NOW I'm FINALLY starting to see the incredible big picture. Thank you Groove3, Sami, AND Steinberg. Fabulous job, much needed!
