Geist2 is a streamlined environment for beat creation and sound sculpting that provides instant inspiration and new ideas for productions. It combines deep sample manipulation, arrangement and modulation capabilities for intuitive and fast workflow. Geist2 is designed so that nothing gets in the way of creativity:

  • Load samples or record direct to pads, slice loops, intuitively sequence beats and manipulate sounds with unprecedented speed.
  • Trigger scenes and retro-capture performances to take the pressure out of the recording process.
  • Create evolving polyrhythmic beats with individual track lengths, event probability and the new TransMod modulation system.
  • Vector interface can be resized, rescaled and reconfigured to your needs.
  • Circuit-modelled filters, new effects, loop point modulation, 64 pads for slicing longer loops and much more.
  • Vintage sampler emulation mode for authentic old-school crunch.
  • Quality sounds and loops to inspire your creativity.
  • Equally at home as a triggered sample player, loop machine, performance beatbox, production station, or all of these at once, so you can approach beat making your way.

I'm looking forward to this. Just picked it up today. If the sampling features are as upgraded as they say, this could render an upgrade to full Ableton Live (from Live Intro) unnecessary. (I mean, I already have Kaivo and NI Komplete, and Omnisphere (enhanced with Luftrum & Plug In Guru), and stuff like that, which blows away the stuff in Ableton's more complete DAW versions. And Geist, with 64 pads per 8 engines, with Scene and Song modes, I mean, I'm not sure if it parallels or overtakes Ableton. I guess it depends on your use of external hardware and the purpose - be it performance with DJ'ing, or more of a compositional purpose (mine). With Geist you can use pre-existing MIDI and run multiple keyboards on different channels - control everything that way; and just use Ableton Intro for the audio warping.

I'm not sure if my purchase of Nerve about 6 months ago was very bright (Nerve doesn't allow actual groove functions, because it divides the beat up into a resolution that is much too course to be effective.

I'm not sure if my purchase of Nerve about 6 months ago, last Christmas, was very bright (Nerve doesn't allow creation of very nuanced timing grooves, because it divides the beat up into a resolution that is much too course to be effective - I guess because it was designed by a techno guy rather than a hip hop guy...).

I know its June but it feels like Christmas.
