FXpansion is proud to announce the availability of Geist2, an all-new incarnation of its award-winning step-sequencer and sample-based drum machine. Grooves and rhythms can be performed and programmed quicker than ever, thanks to its redesigned, resizable (Retina/4K-compatible) interface that’s as easy on the eye as it is to use. Equally at home as a triggered sample player, loop machine, performance beatbox, production system, or all of these things at once, anyone can approach beat making in their own way.
Geist2’s powerful sampling and effects engine can twist and transform sounds into something completely different. Layer samples with individual effects and use crossfaded loop point modulation alongside Zynaptiq’s ZTX — a cross-platform technology for high-quality time-stretching, pitch-shifting, and pitch-correction — to create new sounds and textures. New effects also include FXpansion’s own Bloom (creative delay and diffusion effect) and Maul (distortion and tone shaper) algorithms alongside low fidelity DAC modeling, high-quality reverb, frequency shifting, granular freezing, classic DCAM compression, filters, drive, and much more.
Geist2 is available to purchase and download directly from FXpansion for $199. Existing Geist owners can upgrade to Geist2 for $99. It requires OS X 10.9 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host.
