Cubase 7.5 and HALion Sonic SE Content Downloads - SOLUTION

Post by Luis Dongo »

Hi there,

as there are already many topics about this issue, I'm creating a new thread with the solution. If your download of HSSE Content failed and you can't download it from your shop account again, it is probably because you are using a "Download manager" that corrupted the first download and every subsequent attempt to download. Please avoid the use of download managers to download from our Online-Shop!

On the other hand we have now downloads available in our website: http://www.steinberg.net/en/support/dow ... se_75.html

Have fun with Cubase!

All the best,

Hi Luis, I downloaded and activated the Cubase 7.5 update successfully but the Halion download stopped (after 7 hours!) with 15 minutes to go, and wouldn't resume. I was not using a download manager. Is there any way I can resume the download for the Halion zip? - I have most of it and I don't want to spend all day downloading again.

Are there options on the iso to just install Halion? I really don't relish the idea of a 7 gb download :(

Thanks

This worked for me and now have trip presets installed-could have made life a lot easier if they where in the 7.5 DMG update file? or is that not technically possible?

Hi Luis,

There's still seems no 7.5 *upgrade* DL available for grace-period users, only a full install.

Tried now 4 times to download 6 GB without success. With or without DL manager, all fail at some point.
Only have a ADSL connection giving some 600 kB/s.

Why is there no option of the (900MB) *upgrade*?

HI Robert it took 4 goes for me to download the HSE2 File -connection kept cutting out. I have safari so able to resume but still a pain. On the bright side the trip presets have some great arrpegiators!

Hi John,

Yes, looking forward to give 7.5 a try. Use Chrome, which also has DL resume. But things got stuck already after some 500 MB...
Oh well, understand that Steinberg servers are still sweating :) Still, a smaller *true* upgrade DL option would be great for those not having a 100MB/s connection...

Hi Robert,

the download from the grace period page contains C7.5 + the HSSE2 Content, which is why it's much bigger than the 900MB Update version from the shop. You can download the ISO images from the download site instead, which at least are 2 separate downloads.

Hope this helps!

Would you also please add the Cubase 6.5 ISOs to the page http://www.steinberg.net/en/support/dow ... se_65.html? It would be great to have an ISO of 6.5 so I don't have to install 6.0 each time and then apply the update :)

Thanks heaps!

I bought Hyper Sonic 2 for 250 EUR in November! Why I must pay another 50 EU now for updating Cubase 7 to Сubase 7.5? Halion Sonic 2 is already in there five times cheaper!

EDIT: Sorry, just to be clear. I didn't mean this post, I meant trying to download this in an efficient manner.

OK, Ill ask it. If Ive downloaded the 7.5 Update and the HS stuff and it installs just fine, Do I have to download and install the ISO's as well since it seems theres a HUGE size difference?

Why are the updates with Cubase such a convoluted mess every time????? :?

It's actually not too bad mate. No you don't need to grab the ISO if you already have the 7.0 disc / ISO and the 7.5 updater.

The ISO is handy to have if you ever re-install from scratch again since it will let you install the full 7.5 without installing 7.0 and then having to apply an update. Most other software of a large size works the same way to be honest.

It's good that Steinberg provide fresh ISOs of their 0.5 releases, which is why I'm trying to get my hands on the 6.5 ISO too since I currently have to install 6.0 then apply the 6.5 update. Certainly no big deal, but a nice to have :)

I went ahead and grabbed the ISO's as well, that way I have the full 7.5 WiTHOUT having to have 7.06 there to update to 7.5.
I'll keep it on a backup drive

That's exactly the question I wanted to ask. May be I'll extend it a little bit: Do I need to install the HS SE2 content? Any new content available?

Just to clarify (cos everything has pretty much the same name :oops: );

I had Cubase 6.5.5 with HSSE 1.6.3 update - all good
I then installed VSTi absolute collection and got Halion Sonic with that.
I got a grace period update to Halion Sonic 2 and installed that.
Now I have Cubase 7 and that provided new HSSE content ? (is that right?)
Now I update to Cubase 7.5 and the HSSE is upgraded to HSSE2 ? (not HS2)

My question/s (a few have kind of asked but I need clarification please);

1. Is there extra content added to my install if I already own HS2 and upgrade from HSSE to HSSE2 via the Cubase 7.5 upgrade from 7 ?
2. If there is new content in HSSE2, is this just some of the content that was previously available to me as part of HS2 or is this brand new content ? and thus;
3. Did I waste money buying HS2 or is this still a worthwhile / unique upgrade from HSSE2 ?

Sorry this is so complicated... or not... I don't know any more :-D

Sorry. and another quick one for everybody's clarification;
Am I right to assume from the downloads page Luis provided that;

The 7.5 update (900mb) and second iso image (HSSE2 content) (3.4GB) provide all I need for a successful update from 7.0 ?
If so, what is in the Grace Period update (6GB) other than the 900mb update and the 3.4gb HSSE2 content, ie why is it 2gb bigger than the option above?

Sorry to be 'thick' but I've been at it all day and my eyes are bleeding :-D

Luis or other forum members

I recently purchased Cubase 7 and updated to 7.06. I was within the grace period and have updated my usb licenser .
I have downloaded the ISO image for cubase 7.5 and for the Halion Sonic SE content onto DVDs.

During installation of EDM Midi Loops, Groove Agent SE and also Halion Sonic SE2 state "string reading from file....D/....... verify that the file exists (with and option to retry or cancel). I tried retry on each of these with no luck.

There is then an error messages that the installation of each of EDM Midi loops, Groove Agent SE and Halion Sonic SE2 failed - fatal error during installation.

Halion Sonic now brings up error windows stating that content is not there even if I go back to Cubase 7.06.

Please could you suggest a solution to this.

Many thanks.
Steve

Ok so I unistalled cubase 7.5 and cubase 7.0 and then reinstalled cubase 7.0 plus installed updated to 7.5. the new midi loops, groove agent se all seemed fine.

The problem arose when I tried to install the HS SE 2 content from the ISO image DVD. an error comes up stating "string reading from file verify that the file exists - HS SE2 content failed to install. Fatal error during installation."

Is there any alternative way of getting this HS SE 2 content because Cubase 7.5 is currently unusable for me. I will certainly need to uninstall everything again but i don't seem to have a reliable way to install the HS SE 2 content.

Thanks in advance
Steve
