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.

An excellent resource
I've used Halion for years but basically as a sample player. This course was a great next step in digging deeper into its features. If you have basic familiarity with Halion but have never constructed a patch, this is a great tutorial.

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.

Love Mark's style of clear presentation. This and the earlier Halion 4 video are a must to realise how powerful this tool is.
