Steinberg Releases Free Instrument For HALion

US Taped Vibes electric piano offers a smooth and jazzy, laid-back feel      15/12/23

Steinberg has released Taped Vibes, a free virtual instrument that they say delivers a new, smooth and jazzy, laid-back feel, with a full video tutorial series on how to design sample instruments in HALion.

Senior Marketing Manager Florian Haack told us, "As well as an amazing free library, Taped Vibes is a showcase of how to design sample instruments from scratch in HALion. It is accompanied by a free online tutorial series with videos on sample editing, scripting, macro page design and more, which will consecutively be released on our YouTube VST Instruments & Plug-ins channel."

Here's more details direct from Steinberg...

Taped Vibes for HALion, is a vintage electric piano sampled through the old tape of a Space Echo, a vintage pre-amp, and a high-quality DI box.

Taped Vibes delivers the beautiful sound of the raw, sampled electric piano, a dirty characterful version recorded through the tape loop of a Space Echo, and also a pre-amped version for crunchy distortion and saturation.

High-quality effects allow rich, swirling movement, dreamy reverberations, mesmerizing delays, and enchanting modulations to be added, creating a truly distinctive tone. And for maximum inspiration, it has a unique preset function which randomizes all parameters at once. The new preset can then be easily modified or saved.

• Sampled in three different ways: DI, taped and pre-amped
• Includes selected FX and a random function to create endless new variations
