PAD MOTION is our first Virtual Instrument that utilizes 4 different synthesis engines making it one of the most unique and capable sample library instruments available anywhere. The approach when creating this instrument was not to be just another pad library but to deliver a product that would be the most usable pad library on the market for the modern day media composer. 


SAMPLE CRE8 powers the more than 12 unique sampled sources available.  GRAIN CRE8 is a modern cutting edge granular engine that transforms the available sample content into unique pads and textures. 

*Requires HALion Sonic SE 3.2.20 FREE, HALion Sonic 3.2.20 or HALion 6.2.1 or higher.  (Note: HALion Sonic SE 3 requires mac OS 10.14 or Higher/ Windows 10)

*No USB-elicenser dongle required.  Works with soft e-licenser or USB.

HALion Sonic SE 3 is available for free as a plug-in for any VST3, VST2, AU and AAX compatible host and as a stand-alone application for macOS and Windows.

The SIMPLE Page allows the user to make quick tweaks to the instrument's most important parameters.


PM Sample-CRE8-LITE Advanced Synth Page.
PM GRAIN-CRE8-LITE Advanced Synth Page.P

The Advanced Page offers more complex controls and parameters to the user.

When switching to the ADVANCED Page, the Upper section remains fixed. This section all about having instant access to all the parameters that you will use most of the time without the need to jump to other screens.  

The Lower section is where you will find more in-depth parameters for the Oscillators, Motion Controls, FX, Arppegiator and Midi Player, and filter controls via XY Pads.


PM Sample-CRE8-LITE Advanced Synth Page.

 The  SAMPLE CRE8 SYNTH page is an overview display of the sample content used in the patch.  The actual display is only showing the first sample used in the loaded patch if that patch utilizes multi-samples.​

  • 4 Band Fully Parametric EQ

  • Morph Filter with 2 filter shapes that can be controlled via the automatable XY controller right on the Morph Filter FX module.

  • 2 independent stereo Delays with 3 modes.

  • Efficient Algorithmic Reverb with many parameters to tailor its sound.

  • Convolution Reverb with many impulse choices.

* Additionally, there is a complete suite of 61 audio effect processors in total available via the AUX FX Sends in the mixer portion of HALion Sonic SE.


PM Sample-CRE8-LITE Advanced Motion Page

The Motion Page is where the user can modulate the instrument and add motion to the signal.

The Motion Page features:

  • An Additional LFO 

  • A Step Modulator 

  • User Envelope

  • Amp Envelope

  • Pitch Envelope


 The LFO, Step Modulator and User Envelope can be used to modulate a multitude of parameters via a pull down menu. Each has an amount knob and can be bypassed individually.

PM Sample-CRE8-LITE Advanced Arp & MIDI

The ARP Page

This is an advanced 32-step Arpeggiator based on Yamaha’s legendary Motif Technology with extensive programming and modulation features. The Arpeggiator offers many parameters for programming phrases and altering tempo, groove and swing. Three additional controller lanes are available for quick and easy step modulation for oscillator and filter parameters.


The phrases of the arpeggiator can be recorded internally and exported to the DAW via drag and drop to make them accessible as editable MIDI events.  Additionally, you can store and trigger 8 different phrases on the fly in real time without ever losing sync.

The entire Arpeggiator settings can be locked to keep phrases even when browsing the available presets.


This is a simple midi file phrase player that you can drag and drop midi files to and from your DAW.   Additionally, you can store and trigger 8 different phrases on the fly in real time without ever losing sync.

The XY Page

PM Grain-CRE8-LITE Advanced XY Page.PNG

The XY Page is a simple layout with 3 XY controller boxes. The first XY box controls the Main FX Filter when it is set to dual or quad Morphing modes. 

The second and third XY boxes are tied to the fixed Lo Pass and Hi Pass Filters that are found on the Main Page.  This is a very fun and creative way to automate these filters.


Browse through the patch library with ease and find what you need quickly thanks to the detailed tagging system and large viewing window that is part of the MediaBay sound management system.

The browser can also open "undocked" and be resized up to full screen size.

The Quick Controls

8 Pre-assigned controls at the bottom of the screen allow for quick access to the most commonly used parameters. 

The Motion knob can control all the motion and pulsing of a patch. It defaults to full motion but can dial the motion all the way down to no movement at all. 

* PAN LFO is excluded from the Motion Quick control knob.
