can't wait for Nerve 2
Nerve is so good. in a normal world, Nerve would have Serum's popularity and vice versa.
Nerve 2 is cancelled sadly :( I also really love it. Such a great plugin.
Where did you get the news from? Did it say why?

Geist 2 ,not sure why FXpansion has stopped updating it as frequent though, such a great bit of kit. Just needs some love. Looks like they just destroyed the old forum,with all of our requests,if this is true,then that's pretty f-cd up.
Cpu: Win10/Intel Core i9-10900K + Apple Mac OSX/BigSur/Slate VMS/Antelope Audio Discrete 8 Synergy Core
Synths: Sequential Prophet 10|OB-6/Deepmind 12/Virus TI2 61/Waldorf Blofeld/Yamaha Motif XS7/Akai MPC X

I don’t know any specifics about this but if they think it’s feature complete for now, where is the point in updating just for the sake of updating? You can bet that they are aware on which aspects Geist could get a bit of enhancement but there is nothing wrong with a (fair) charge for the next version. :roll:

From the looks of it, it seems pretty cool tbh! I’m glad that I am pretty much set on drum instruments (Maschine , battery), so money saved I guess. :party:

Cheers

I consider Geist the overall best VST drum machine available. I would also say it is feature complete in the big sense. It could use some polish and to improve already existing features and improved workflow in few areas.

I would call it semi abandon-ware at this point. FXpansion being bought by Roli was likely the end of Geist. It is still supported, but not developed and I would say it is only a matter of time before it is declared dead.

Sure but he wants to make acoustic drums and I stated in the OP that I make house..so, no.
OK...I thought there was some discussion in there that included both, just a thought

Battery and Studio One's Impakt.
But Punch 2 sound's amazing in all genres.

Still reach for a classic for instant mojo: Motu BPM. Still love this crazy drum machine but basically, like all Motu instruments, thoroughly abandoned.

In Session Audio makes some great stuff - Drumatic Creator and Taiko Creator strike a great balance of sound, usability, and flexibility. Shimmer Shake Strike is a gem as well.

If only Geist 2 and Tremor could have a baby ..
