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 patches are interesting but simple enough to let you compose with them rather than being restrictive to the point where you have to compose around them.  Many of the presets live up to the name PAD MOTION and have complex motion to create interesting textures and moods. 

SAMPLE CRE8 powers the more than 900 unique sampled sources available.  GRAIN CRE8 is a modern cutting edge granular engine that transforms the available sample content into unique pads and textures.  Included in Pad Motion is a wavetable synth and an analog modeled oscillator synth. The wavetable synth contains over 1100 unique wavetables.  


 A few of the patches are single SAMPLE CRE8 or GRAIN CRE8 layers, but most of the patches are a combination of multiple SAMPLE CRE8 layers, multiple GRAIN CRE8 layers or a combination being 1 layer of each.  There are also many patches that combine SAMPLE CRE8 or GRAIN CRE8 with a layer of the wavetable and analog modeled synth.  This combination takes the library to the next level and makes it truly a "hybrid" synthesis approach allowing a much wider and diverse color pallet of sound than any sample library that is limited to just its own sample content.

*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.

"PAD MOTION – Cinematic Pads with Movement is outstanding to produce pads that have a unique vibe. You need a complex motion for underscore or in the background of your main track look no further this library creates different moods and textures."

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


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.


 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.​

This synth page also includes a sample browser/loader that allows you to switch between any of the available 907 possible sample/multi-sample choices that can be used for sound design patch creation.

There are also many parameters to adjust sample start times, end times, loop points, crossfade loops, etc.

There are included patches that will allow you to Drag n Drop your own single samples onto the sample window to use your own content.  This feature functions in the same manner as our DROP-CRE8 instruments.


 The  GRAIN CRE8 SYNTH provides a large amount of parameters that control the cutting edge modern advanced granular synthesis engine. It provides up to 8 grain streams per oscillator to create complex rich and spacious structures.

This synth page also includes a sample browser/loader that allows you to switch between any of the available 907 possible sample/multi-sample choices that can be used for sound design patch creation within the GRAIN CRE8 engine.

This is the page that can create truly unique textures that are only possible with granular synthesis.

There are included patches that will allow you to Drag n Drop your own single samples onto the granular window to use your own content.  This feature functions in the same manner as our DROP-CRE8 instruments.

SYNTH Section

The Synth Page offers the user a Synth Oscillator, a Wavetable Synth, Sub Oscillator, and a Noise Oscillator.

  • An LFO attached to Oscillator 1 that modulates the Waveform knob when applicable*

The Wavetable Oscillator contains:

  • Over 1100 wavetable options to choose from

  • Level

  • Octave

  • Course Tune and Fine Tune

  • 2D and 3D display

  • Formant functions

  • Multi Oscillator Functions

  • An LFO with multiple Wavetable destinations to modulate.

The Noise Oscillator Contains:

  • Over 200 different noise types to choose from

  • Noise Level

The Sub Oscillator Includes:​

  • Level

  • Sub Oscillator Type

  • 3 Retrigger Modes


* The Waveform knob only operates if the Sync, CM, XOR and PWM oscillator types are chosen.

**Important to note PAD MOTION 3.0 Synth layer is simplified compared to earlier versions of PAD MOTION. To access the GUI of the synth layers from earlier versions, the user needs to load presets with the family names Pad Motion 1.5, Pad Motion Preset Pack [...], Pad Motion. Similarly, the user can access all Pad Motion 3.0 content by loading presets with the family name Pad Motion 3.0

The FX Page

The FX Page provides you with 18 different insert effects to enable or disable.  The different effects are:

  • Envelope Shaper

  • Vintage Compressor which is at the end of the signal chain before the reverb to act like a "Mastering Compressor".

  • Compressor

  • Distortion module with 4 distortion effect types.

  • Guitar Amplifier modeling effect. Control over amp heads and cabinets as well as microphone position.

  • Chorus

  • Phaser

  • Flanger

  • Ring Mod FX

  • 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.


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

The Motion Page features:

  • 2 Additional LFOs 

  • 2 Step Modulators 

  • User Envelope

  • Amp Envelope

  • Pitch Envelope


 The LFOs, Step Modulators 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.

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

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.

The Trigger Pads

8 Trigger pads are assigned to the Arpeggiater's 8 possible patterns.  These can be triggered "on the fly" all without losing sync in real time.

The pads can also be assigned to the 8 patterns on the Midi Player page.
