FXpansion's next-generation sampling instrument is now available 19/11/10
We and FXpansion tell us that Geist, which we brought you a teaser of a little while ago, is now available. Here's all the details directly from them...
Sample, slice, sequence, mix, arrange, effect, resample. Geist is FXpansion's next-generation sampling drum machine, designed to create evolved, custom beats and grooves, freeing you from the limits of pre-packaged loops and over-complicated DAWs.
Geist fuses creative sample-sculpting tools with fast pattern step-sequencing and arrangement. Browse through sounds with lightning speed, slice and assign loops to pads with a single click; sample, resample and build beats in a slick unified environment. Geist makes fiddly tasks with multiple apps a thing of the past.
Geist runs as a plugin and as a standalone application, perfect for laptop beatmaking. Export creations as audio clips or load sessions back into the plugin to resample, reslice, remix, rearrange and transform your beats even further. Geist is a complete, integrated rhythm production sandbox for the studio, the tourbus or the stage! Highlights
