Behind the Scenes on Steinberg's HALion - An Interview with Head Developer Michael Ruf

Supporting MATRIXSYNTH member, Synthmorph, wrote in to let us know they have an interview up with Michael Ruf, the head developer of HALion. You can find the full interview here.

A short excerpt on the beginning of HALion:

"Since I joined Steinberg only in 2007, I cannot really tell you much about the development before that time, but when we set up the new HALion team in 2007, we were completely aware that the existing code basis had evolved over quite a long time and had come to a point where it was rather difficult to keep up with new technologies like the transition to 64-bit computing. So, the decision was made to develop the whole HALion engine from the ground up, allowing us to create a really modern, modular and flexible engine as the foundation for our future instrument line."
