PRESS RELEASE: Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH is pleased to announce the release of a 3.5 update to its award-winning HALion 3 virtual sampler VST instrument.

The update adds native support for 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, as well as a new Factory Content soundbank consisting of 128 new electronic instruments and drum kits.

HALion 3.5 is the latest Steinberg product to be made available in a 64-bit version, coming after the release of Cubase 5 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra 1.5 for 64-bit Vista. The update is now available for download for all HALion 3 customers at www.steinberg.net

"Because it adds compatibility to 64-bit Vista, HALion 3.5 can address vast amounts of memory, allowing many more additional instruments to be loaded simultaneously," comments Helge Vogt, Steinberg's Product Marketing Manager for Cubase and HALion.

"This frees up even more creative potential because it puts even more instruments and articulations at the artist's fingertips. And combined with the VST Expression technology in Cubase 5, HALion 3.5 really comes into its own, using all those articulations at once with a radically smoother workflow without worrying about the traditional 32-Bit RAM constraints.

"And when used with Cubase 5 as the host application, and the 64-bit-ready MR816 CSX/X FireWire audio hardware, HALion 3.5 is a key part of our complete 64-bit production solution," Vogt adds.
