Trigger Pads

You can use the trigger pads to trigger single notes or whole chords and to switch between FlexPhraser or arpeggiator variations.

Many of the programs that come with HALion Sonic SE make use of the trigger pads.

If a note or a chord is assigned to a pad, this pad turns orange. If a pad switches between variations, the line above the pad turns orange.

  • To trigger a pad, click on it.


Pad presets save trigger notes and chord snapshots, but not the FlexPhraser variations. This means that you can exchange trigger notes and chords by loading presets without loosing your FlexPhraser variation settings.


With the Bypass Pads button to the right of the trigger pads, you can bypass the entire pads section. This deactivates any functionality you assigned to the trigger pads.
