Steinberg Media Technologies GmbH announces a new update for its HALion Symphonic Orchestra VST instrument that provides support for 64-bit editions of Windows Vista, as well as new "light" programs for customers using 32-bit versions of Windows. HALion Symphonic Orchestra is the latest Steinberg product to be made available in a 64-bit version, following the release of Cubase 5 for 64-bit Vista.

Cubase 5 and HALion Symphonic Orchestra fully support VST Expressions, a new technology that offers dramatically enhanced handling of large sample libraries.

The update also includes a new sound bank featuring "light" versions of each instrument. Specially engineered to use less memory than the full versions, it allows customers running 32-bit systems to employ even more articulations and instruments.

Cubase 5 includes a 90-day trial version of HALion Symphonic Orchestra 16-bit Special Edition; Cubase 5 owners can upgrade to the full 16-bit version for $99.99.

The update to HALion Symphonic Orchestra V. 1.5 is now available as a download to all registered owners of HALion Symphonic Orchestra, including customers with the 16-bit Special Edition, at www.steinberg.net.
