STEINBERG HALION SONIC | £212

REVIEW
Cast your mind back. Back into the mists of time, far back to prehistory (circa 2001) and recall, if you will, Yamaha’s Motifs 6, 7 and 8. The team that worked on the multitimbral, 62-voice polyphonic hardware Motif workstation that set many a muzo’s ears alight in years of yore is the same team drafted in to work on Steinberg’s successor to softstation Hypersonic 2: HALion Sonic 1. It looks promising already.

While cosmetically similar to Hypersonic, HALion Sonic offers a good deal more than its forebear and goes way beyond the comparatively limited scope of the original Motifs. Now seems like a good time to front-load this post with some interesting numbers...
