Sampling in Halion 6 within SONAR

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Any Halion 6 users out there?

According to the documentation you have to enable the side-chain input by clicking a button in the plugin header...there is no button! Is this a Cubase only feature?

Can anyone help me to get the audio from my guitar recorded into a Halion 6 instance within Sonar? I've tried various

 routing options but have given up. Halion 6 doesn't show a side-chain input for example if I try to put a send on my guitar audio track to send to Halion.

Thanks,

Mike.

CbB does not use buttons in the header to create side-chains. The header added to a plug-in UI depends on the DAW.

If a plug-in has side-chain inputs, they should appear in all audio/instrument track and bus output/send options except for the track/bus hosting the plug-ins.

In the case of a synth, it may be necessary to add the synth to an audio/bus FX rack for the side-chain inputs to appear in the other tracks/buses.

I do not have Halion 6 to test but I do have other synths with side-chain inputs that work this way.

Hi,

I've tried adding the synth to the FX Bin but alas still no Side-Chain to target.  

Dissapointed - have raised a support call with Steinberg to see if any other DAW apart from Cubase can see the side-chain.

Cheers

Got it working. Add Halion to the FX bin. Set the output of my audio track, guitar in this instance, to a new Patch Point. Set the input of the Halion track to the Patch Point 🙂 Happy Days

This routes audio into the plug-in using the first pair of audio inputs. Which methods work (if any) depend on the plug-in. Glad you got if figured out.

It's a bit flaky - can lose the connection so to speak and you have to have input monitoring enabled -  but it's a start.

Input echo for a track using a patch point as an input or an aux track follow the same rules as any other audio track. IOW, the only way to hear the signal at the track input is with input echo enabled.
