Next-generation sampling drum machine

Sample, slice, sequence, mix, arrange, effect, resample, repeat!

is a next-generation sampling drum machine designed to create evolved beats and grooves, freeing you from the limits of pre-packaged loops and over-complicated DAWs.

Geist fuses creative sample-sculpting tools with fast pattern step-sequencing and arrangement. Browse through sounds with lightning speed; slice loops to pads with a single click; sample, resample and build beats in a slick unified environment. Geist makes fiddly tasks with multiple apps a thing of the past.

Supplied as a plugin and a standalone application, Geist is perfect for the studio or on the move. Export loops from the standalone version or load sessions back into the plugin to resample, reslice, remix, rearrange and transform your sounds even further. Geist is a complete rhythm production environment, primed to streamline your workflow and reawaken your love of making beats.

Browse, sample, slice
Get sounds onto pads fast!

Close

Browse, sample, slice
Geist’s browser makes it faster than ever to find your sounds. Save favourites and searches, compare sounds from different folders in shortlists and send previews through a discrete output – perfect for building beats live. Loops can be sliced and sent to pads with a single click. The built-in sampler lets you record external input, resample Geist’s output and record multiple tempo-synced takes.

Sculpt your sounds
Timestretch, filtering, FX and more

Close

Sculpt your sounds
Geist’s sound-sculpting tools include real-time DIRAC timestretch, layering with velocity splits and a stunning built-in FX suite. Processing like frequency shifting, granular freezing and ring mod as well as DCAM circuit-modelled compression, filtering and drive can be applied to individual layers, pads, whole engines or the entire mix output.

Sequence and capture
Creative pattern step-sequencing

Close

Sequence and capture
Geist’s pattern step-sequencer includes real-time recording and can even capture takes played without Record enabled! Each of the 8 engines can have different pattern lengths and step rates with additional clock divisions for fascinating polyrhythmic sequences. It also includes microtiming shifts for organic grooves that go ‘off the grid’ and parameter step-automation for complex, evolving grooves.
