Meet the Halo 23.

Original size. New era.

~ ONOLEO ~

The relentless break of bright waves on a wild beach. A pentatonic subset of harmonic minor filled with curiosity, striving, and constant motion; doubled half steps provide for more tension than most pentatonic tunings, yet curiously do not strongly evoke Persian/Arabic flavors. Truly a unique and different flavor. Pronounced ‘oh no LEE oh,’ the name roughly translates as “beautiful voice” in Hawaiian.

Onoleo is just one of the 29 sound models, or tunings, available for Halo 23.

A sound model is the specific set of pitches on the instrument which give it a characteristic sonic flavor. These pitches also determine the Halo’s register, which is how “high” or “low” the key is.

The sound models for Halo 23 span three registers. Explore them below.
