HALion Symphonic Orchestra puts the awesome emotive power and sheer sonic majesty of a full symphonic orchestra under your total control. Evocative scores, exquisite arrangements, emotive accompaniments: HSO is the ideal, cost effective symphonic instrument for composition, production and pre-production in music, TV and film scoring and game sound.
The luxuriously extensive content provided on three double layer DVDs spans over 1200 instruments recorded in the very highest fidelity using top-of-the-range equipment. Capturing every nuance and detail of a full palette and dynamic range of strings, brass, woodwind and percussion instruments, the massive 27GB library includes an almost inexhaustible range of articulations and expressive playing techniques. And because the vast HSO library is uniquely versatile, HALion Symphonic Orchestra sounds just as great in an RnB production as in a baroque chamber piece.
