Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH has updated its HALion Symphonic Orchestra VST instrument to version 1.5, which provides support for 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, as well as "light" programs for customers using 32-bit versions of Windows.
According to the manufacturer, version 1.5 allows you to fully benefit from using a 64-bit environment, since the amount of addressable memory space in 64-bit systems lets more instruments and articulations be used simultaneously.
HALion Symphonic Orchestra 1.5 also includes a new soundbank with ‘light'' versions of each instrument. Because they use less memory than the full versions, the light versions allow customers running 32-bit systems to employ even more articulations and instruments.
