The Music Room is a virtual instrument for HALion 6 or later, including the free HALion Sonic SE 3.5 (or later) and the new HALion Sonic 7 from Steinberg.
The idea behind The Music Room was to produce a virtual instrument/sample library for soundtrack composing and modern songwriting, with an intimate and cinematic sound. It is comprised of 30 presets encompassing Piano, Strings, and Synth.
Instruments and Presets
We recorded a Yamaha CF-III Piano with three microphone perspectives (Close high and low, far and near), allowing you to tweak the sound to your desire. The piano is focused on the low dynamic range for a more delicate sound, with pedal-on and pedal-off samples. The GUI allows you complete control of the sound with different filters, velocity curves, and reverb/delay. It also comes with a full-fledged arpeggiator.
