New HALion online tutorial and CDROM

Auxbuss Publications is delighted to announce the release of a new online tutorial that is also available as a CDROM. A fully functional demo is available at http://www.auxbuss.com/HALionU_demo/

HALion: Unleashed - A practical guide to Steinberg HALion virtual sampler
ISBN: 0954479521
by Rudi Cazeaux www.auxbuss.com

HALion Unleashed is a CDROM and online tutorial designed for the musician who wants to make the most of Steinberg's advanced software sampler. It contains a series of 50 tutorials that cover not just the basics of operation, but also the more advanced subjects.

HALion Unleashed provides almost two hours of useful advice on how to organise, edit and create patches. Concepts such as folders, crossfades, megatriggers, import, and modulation are clearly explained in a simple, down-to-earth way, featuring plenty of practical examples. You will be taken through each HALion screen in turn to demonstrate the power behind every feature.

Each narrated tutorial can be run on its own and re-visited at your own pace.

Numerous tips are also included to help you speed-up your workflow. You will learn how to make the most of memory and optimise disk streaming.

For the first time the power of HALion is uncovered and brought together in one simple-to-use package.

Annual online use: £10/$18/€15
CDROM: £20/$35/€30 (includes shipping, all taxes, and one year online)

The CDROM does not require access to the Internet.

HALion Unleashed requires a web-browser that is Flash-enabled. You can test your browser by running the HALion Unleashed demo here:
