You might be interested in the new HALion 3 review on TraxMusic at:
As well as HAL3, you'll also find some other interesting stuff such as "Ultra Focus", "Melodyne 2.5", "Albino 2" etc. and even some oldie but goodie HAL2 tutorials (if you haven't already seen them on the Steinberg HALion forum).
Thanks for the review Rudi! I think you and Pink know this program better than the guys that made it.
