FXpansion has announced the release of Geist2, a streamlined environment for beat creation and sound sculpting that is designed to provides instant inspiration and new ideas for productions.
It combines deep sample manipulation, arrangement and modulation capabilities for intuitive and fast workflow.
- Load samples or record direct to pads, slice loops, intuitively sequence beats and manipulate sounds with increased 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.
- Reworked vector interface can be resized, rescaled and reconfigured to a user's 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 creativity.
Equally at home as a triggered sample player, loop machine, performance beatbox, production station, or all of these at once, so a user can approach beat making their own way.
Price: $199. Existing Geist owners can upgrade for $99.
