HALion String Edition Vol. 1 is Steinberg's first complete string orchestra for computer-based music production in the form of a comprehensive string library, as well as a versatile virtual instrument for VST and Direct X systems such as Cubase SX, Cubase SL and Nuendo for the Mac or PC. The eight double basses, 10 cellos, 12 violas and 16 violins provided offer a solid foundation to create the next Hollywood soundtrack or a classic rock symphony.
HALion String Edition Vol. 1 is a complete string orchestra with a 5GB sound library that comes with an integrated player. Well-known musician and composer Claudius Bruese, who made an important contribution to the development of the legendary VST piano, The Grand, co-produced the HALion String Edition.
