Impressively Simple yet Powerful Beat Creation

An updated user interface and smoother workflow are just two of the powerful innovations behind FXpansion's Geist2 sampling drum machine virtual instrument. Those of us here at Sweetwater who've gotten into Geist consider it one of the most intuitive loop- and sample-based soft synths on the market. Everything, from loop libraries and "Short List" playlists to effects, is right where you need it, and you couldn't ask for easier beat slicing. With exciting new features, such as an expanded 64-pad matrix, vintage sampler emulation, and TransMod modulation, Geist2 is a total must-have drum machine plug-in.

Sample, slice, tweak, and remix - all in the box!

Geist2 is much more than a loop plug-in. This fully loaded sampler lets you sample in your own loops, slice them up, create new grooves, and tweak your sound in fun and creative ways. Create polyrhythmic beats, trigger scenes, sample it all to a pad, and morph the sound in crazy ways with Zynaptiq ZTX time-stretch/pitch-shift - it's all possible in FXpansion Geist2. Step automation lets you go nuts with any parameter control, while killer effects make it easy to redefine your sound. Add in song mode, and you can take your sample and loops and turn them into complete tracks, without ever leaving Geist2.

FXpansion Geist2 Sampling Drum Machine Virtual Instrument Features:
  • A powerful yet extremely easy-to-use sampling drum machine virtual instrument
  • Create arrangements with pre-made loops or sample in your own content
  • Slice up loops (even long ones) and assign the slices to up to 64 pads

Grid drum sequencer with sample playback and a ton of features

I originally got this to reproduce the 'counting metronome' in the Alesis drum computer. Well, it does a good job of that - but it is capable of so much more. If you write electronica or industrial, you want this in your kit. A powerful and intuitive interface enables you to do just about any sort of grid-sequencing for sample playback you could want. A very flexible load/save interface lets you easily import just parts of your drum machine creations across projects. Flexible MIDI control lets you record and play back MIDI, and performance-encouraging features make it useful for your live grid-playback drumming needs. In addition, if you're familiar with Roland drum machines, you'll find the workflow very intuitive. A+
