    Interesting ! No one interested in Halion 5 tutorials ? This is one deep, and powerful Sampler, and would surely deserve some MPV tutorials. Cheers, Muziksculp

    Thanks Muziksculp for the suggestion. Halion has been around for awhile and a tutorial on it is a great suggestion. Anything in particular you'd like to see explained about this sampler?

    [quote=Gary Hiebner]Thanks Muziksculp for the suggestion. Halion has been around for awhile and a tutorial on it is a great suggestion. Anything in particular you'd like to see explained about this sampler?[/quote] Hi Gary, Given that Halion 5 is such a deep sampler to cover in one set of tutorials. Maybe a basic, then Intermediate, and finally advanced tutorials might not be such a bad idea. Or maybe Basic, then Advanced, then Tips and Tricks. Kind of odd that MPV does not have Halion 4, or Halion 5 tutorials :- ( Hopefully this will change once you have Halion 5 tutorials :- ) It would be helpful to go through the interface in general explaining how best to use it, with some workflow tips that will help speed up tasks. Also a brief review on the new Instruments included in Halion 5. Then dive into the sampling engine, importing samples from Cubase 7 into Halion 5, mapping the samples into zones, ...Switching programs via key-switches, and other controllers for real time performance etc. Modulation, Envelopes, Filters, ..etc. Explain how best to use Layers, and the program tree to analyze, and build new instruments, or edit existing ones, also venture into the new Granular Synth Engine, Effects, and the Mixer in Halion 5, how best to use it, tips, ..etc. Explain how best to prepare samples to be imported into Halion 5, i.e. from Cubase 7. i.e. naming scheme, using folders to organize the samples, ...etc. Integration with Wavelab 8, i.e. editing samples in Wavelab 8, then continue working with the edited samples in Halion 5, .and many other tips, and how to topics that would improve/speed up workflow. Give a clear picture of the various sound generating options available in Halion 5. (Synth engine), (Sample Engine), (Granular Engine), and how to combine the various engines into one program, How to use Layers for creative sound design. It would be cool to give some extra attention to the Granular Synth Engine, and how to get creative with it. Since it is quite powerful, and very unique for creating new sonic textures. I hope I didn't complicate things ;-) with this. Basically Halion 5 tutorials that are exciting, entertaining, and fun to watch and learn would be what I will enjoy, and will give the user a good grasp of how best to use it in an optimized fashion, and get under the hood of Halion 5 to get creative with instrument, and sound design. Thanks, Muziksculp

    Re: Re: Re: Re: Halion 5
    I've recently purchased Halion 5 and am shocked at how awesome it is. I expected it to be good but it has blown me away. However for me the manual is taking a while to get my head round, I'm sure I'll get there eventually, but I would love something on the lines of "Native Instruments 203: Reaktor: Revealed" for Halion, but obviously including everything Halion has to offer. which is basically the sort of thing Muziksculp is asking for above. I've owned Komplete 8 Ultimate, now own Komplete 9 Ultimate and while there's still a lot from there I will use, Halion is my new go to thing. Thanks

    I would mos def purchase some Halion 5 tutorials if they were available here. I think the three levels plus tips and tricks would be excellent. Basic, intermediate, advanced, and tips and tricks. If there is not enough interest in doing a full blown tutorial maybe we can see some articles and/or some mini-tutorials or some free content that's short and digestible to determine the level of interest.

    Halion 5 is now a mature program with a large feature set. The sound design features differentiate it from Kontakt. Would very much like to see a tutorial, even if only "Tips and Tricks". The manual is large and thorough but video tutorials often clarify processes and features which are not so obvious in print.

    Yes. A most definite need. Halion 5 is very deep and a vast amount of time would be saved by a good tutorial (or set of). My money is waiting.
