FXpansion Geist 2

Geist 2 is a whole new beast from Fxpansion's first drum software Guru.

Geist 2 is not what you would expect from drum software but for the creative it has possibilities to really let you put a signature on a track.

You really have to dig to see the beauty in Geist but it is readily apparent in the sound engine which really shines.

You can write your own patterns or import them as .mid files which makes it a powerful DJ style creation tool.

Using drum patterns from another program like Cubase's Groove Agent and you can really get rocking at lightning speed.

Geist is a powerful sequencing tool as well to shape melodies on top of percussion.

The content I found was the quirkiest part of Geist. The content is not broken up into kits and patterns which you can easily load. I also purchased some of the expansions and found that they really felt tiny and not finished.

The Geist sound quality to me makes it worth a buy that and it's unique ability to shape percussion and melodies.

Here is a video I made showing some of the capabilities of Geist 2.
