Sound Library for Steinberg Halion Sonic

Celestial Spheres


dESCRIPTION: Halion Sonic


Celestial Spheres - Heavenly Bodies in Motion. Where Spheres are transmuted to Sound and Celestial Orbits are transmuted to movements in sound energy. And movement is emotion, beautiful whether as matter or energy.


That is the theme of Touch The Universes's first venture in sound libraries -- lush, evolving, deep movement that is beautiful in its simplicity and complexity. Celestial Spheres is full of evolving sounds, whether they are keyscapes, fusing beautiful or exotic alien keys layered with back drops of moving musical textures, or full blown lush ambient soundscapes suitable for epic soundtracks or simply to infuse evocative ambient scenes or color into modern productions.

That said, Celestial Spheres for Steinberg's Halion 6 is full fledged sound library, covering a diverse assortment of patch categories -- from ambient soundcscapes to modern leads, plucks, and basses. Whether your crafting epic soundtracks or other ambient scenery and your productions need Soundscapes, Lush Evolving Sounds, Atmospheric Pads and Keys, or your producing the latest contemporary electronic music in need of of seriously deep and solid snappy basses, or highly unique contemporary leads or plucks, Celestial Spheres has you covered. It was designed to be inclusive and cater to just about any contemporary productions, with many dozens of highly unique, quality presets for each category.

The Celestial Spheres Sound Library contains 438 programs/presets using pure synthesis and multi-samples (including original Nord 2 Lead samples). Furthermore, the presets can be divided into two categories and can be purchased seperately. The Atmospheres Library (Pads, Soundscapes, Keys, Musical FX, Synth Choirs) and the Electronica Library (Leads, Plucks, Basses, Keys, Formant Choirs). Both are hybrid sound libraries containing original multi sampled material that is either layered with other multi-samples, or fused with live synthesis using any of Halion's excellent sythesis methods -- granular, wavetable, or VA. In addition, Celestial Spheres also includes original Nord Lead 2 multi-samples in addition to many dozens of unique, completely synthesized Halion instruments.

ATMOSPHERES LIBRARY (Pads, Soundscapes, Keys, Musical FX, Synth Choirs)

The Atmospheres Library is the Ambient, Cinematic Side of Celstial Spheres and tastefully infuses nearly every type of sound engine within Halion 6, the multi-sampler, granular, wavetable, and synth engines, using unique and original sound sources. The multi-samples were painstakingly key mapped spanning on average about every 4 or 5 keys, though in some situations, every key is mapped. They were then tastefully programmed and enhanced in Halion with added filters, effects and macros. Nearly every patch also blends in live synthesis to keep things even more alive and interesting, using any of Halion's outstanding synth engines: Auron, Trium, Skylab, Voltage and Anima. The patches themselves are diverse, some are simple and elegant, while being highly unique, while others are vastly more complex and evolving -- layering many multi-samples with either/or granular or wavetable engines in addition to many layers of live synthesis. As a bonus, a few dozen insturments use Nord Lead 2 sound sources for some keys and choirs.

ELECTRONICA LIBRARY (Leads, Plucks, Basses, Keys, Formant Choirs)

The electronica, energy side, likewise has the exact same qualities, in addition to a special treat for Halion 6. Celstial Spheres includes unique, multi-sampled Nord Lead 2 patches that were painstakingly recorded, note by note, and key mapped key by key. They then received the same love and were enhanced within Halion's engine with filters, envelopes, effects, granularized, modulated, stacked, and layered with live synthesis. This resulted in some outstanding and exceptional basses and plucks to include in your Halion arsenal. In addition, there are many dozens of fully sythesized programs, especially for the leads to ensure maximum playability and fluidity. A dozen or so patches multi-sampled every key and at multiple velocities.

NORD LIBRARY (Plucks, Keys, Basses, Choirs)

The Celestial Spheres (Nord) Library contains only the instruments using the Nord 2 Lead Recordings within the sound library. There are 85 Instruments in total, including many Raw versions where the instrument contains only one layer with minimal effects. The rest are stacked Nord 2 Lead Instruments and/or a fusion with live synthesis. The majority of the Instruments includes plucks, basses, keys, choirs, and a few leads and musical textures.

Celestial Spheres is available for Halion 6 and Halion Sonic 3, and for the fee edition of Halio Sonic SE. The Halion and Halion onic editions are 99.5 percent identical, soundwise. The Halion version, however, allows more than 4 effects to be stack per bus and one is able to dive deper into the program layers archetecure. About a dozen patches in Halion contain a brickwall limiter that is not found in its other counterparts.

Celestial Spheres is available as a full library for Halion 6 /Halion Sonic and contains all 438 presets and 3.55 GB of original material. It is also available categorically split by type -- the celstial (ambient) side or the sphere (electornica) side , to cater more specifically to individual preference. Both sides contain elements of the other for a more rounded library, in addition to splitting the nord samples between them, though a predominantly larger portion is found in the eectornica side. That said, in case anyone is simply interested the Nord 2 Lead samples, that too is available as its own bank. Purchasing the bank in full is of course the greater value. Lastly, any purchased libar, either full or a part, will give you access to all of formats. If you bought the full libarary for Halion, the other formats would be available to you as well, the Halion Sonic or Halion Sonic SE version.


Halion 6 will give you the most direct control to get in depth with the library and tweak every facet of the sound. The Halion 6 version literally opens up hundreds of parameters not availalbe in the other platfroms, in addition to many layers of assigned macros.To get the most out of Celestial Spheres, the Halion 6 platform is highly recommended. It also does not have a 4 insert FX limit per bus, which Halion Sonic and SE do. The only potential sound difference between the Halion and Halion Sonic platforms, is about half a dozen patches contain a limiter not found in its Halion Sonic counterpart . Furthermore, .It is possilbe to load a Halion Sonic/SE library in Halion 6, but it is not possible to load a Halion Library in Halion/SE. 


Anyone purchasing any bank will be able to download any and all platfoms. For instance, if you purchase the Halion Full Library, the Halion Sonic and SE libraries are yours as well.

Both libraries for Halion and Halion Sonic contain 438 instruments.The Halion Sonic SE version contains less patches (394) since the patches using all synthesis with Voltage and Auron could not be transferred..The patches that are all synthesis were mainly in the lead category. Because there are less patches, the SE versions are 5$ less.
