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 Sound
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
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.

Arrange and Integrate
Geist's integrated song mode lets you build complex, evolving pattern arrangements in a musical and fun way: record pattern and scene triggers live or edit parts directly on the timeline. Or just start jamming and capture your performance afterwards with the retro record function! Entire songs can be exported from the standalone version or loaded back into the plugin for further editing in a full DAW project.
