Geist is FXpansion's next-generation sampling instrument. It integrates a suite of powerful beat production features into a unified, slick interface designed to free you from the limits of pre-packaged loops and inspire your beatmaking to new levels of creativity.
Real-time sampling, resampling and slicing
Geist lets you cut up loops and breaks and send them to pads with a single click! It delivers the flexibility you crave for really involved slicing operations, and an intelligent classify system to build kits from loops in seconds.
Geist can resample its output or sample external input. Record multiple takes and exact loops, sending them to the slicer with a few clicks. Whether you dig in crates or play synths, guitar or bass, Geist lets you inject sounds onto pads fast.
Sonic sculpture and sequencing
Geist's sound sculpting tools include stunning FX with DCAM modelled compression, filtering and drive. The pattern sequencer includes step-automation for parameters, real-time recording and retro capture, for laying down takes without pressing record first!
An integrated song mode lets you build complex, evolving pattern arrangements in a musical and fun way. Record pattern and scene triggers live, draw and edit parts directly on the linear timeline, or just jam away and capture your performance afterwards.
High-performance browsing and DAW integration
Geist's browser is built to make it faster than ever to find your sounds! Set up favourites, save searches, compare files from different folders in shortlists. You can even send previews through a discrete output, perfect for building beats in live scenarios.
With full MIDI and audio export, a variety of plugin formats and a standalone version, Geist is a complete rhythm production environment, primed to streamline your workflow and reawaken your love of making beats!
