Topic: Using Geist and Midi Controller

Hi, Does anyone know how to setup bi-directional midi control with Geist? I'm using Maschine to control Geist and I'd love for all the parameters to have feedback on the hardware upon selecting them on the software. Ie. when I select a new pad the focus volume fader would update on the hardware as w...

thanks Drew. the reason why i do this is to have them in separate folders when I fire up ableton/studio one/cubase. over the years i've purchased a ton of plugins and having them on one big list sounds a bit scary so i've broken them down to categories of subfolders (eg. fxpansion freecomp is under ...

ok i figured it out. if you change the location of your geist vst the standalone will miss it. Im fairly new to mac (three weeks in) and I dont know (yet) how to install geist vst into a custom folder with the installer so I had to copy the geist vst into two places (the default location for the sta...

Thanks Drew, here's a log that opens when I try to open the app via the "show package contents" path. No crashlog pops up when i try to open it via the application icon in the apps folder, only the message "Geist quit unexpectedly". Last login: Thu Nov 8 19:31:43 on ttys000 Macbo...

Geist standalone application quite unexpectedly (solved)

Hi FX dudes, Im running Geist as a plugin inside DAW flawlessly but I have a problem opening it in standalone as it crashes on load. Any ideas what could be the culprit? I'm running Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on MacBook Retina and I've installed the latest Geist release from My Account. I'll be happy for ...

well. two things come to mind. proper mixing section and third party plugin support. going in to the nitty gritty of your sounds is not really practical with the tools on board geist. Machine has the VST support but still working on it is nothing like working on a good DAW as there is no proper mixd...

The inability to re-size and have more space for browsing files is one of the few reasons keeping me from using Geist right now. In the age of gigabytes of potentially usable drumhits and loops the preview and browse options are a priority! I didnt know I could get hide the Type and Size panes - tho...

Devasan, I dont think the problem is that much about how many individual hits can Geist consume but rather how they are laid out. Say if I move the placing of my main kick drums I will probably want to move the placing of the kick of the layered slices/loops. These are all on different engines and d...

hmm... another day in the lab with geist. Compared to my old drum setup (FL), there's certainly more freedom to mix and tweak in FL than Geist. Layering loops on top of "main hits" is also much easier on FL than Geist. In Geist, each sliced loop will eat up a whole engine and theres only e...

Geist: First impressions

Posted this on KVR aswell earlier and thought I'd share my first impression here aswell. Hope that's not against forum ethics or rules even its a 'support forum' by definition. Before the purchase I watched all the tutorials, read the reviews and bought the plug knowing that this might be more aimed...

after an intensive 4-6 hour session I've noticed that the "song mode" will even after the latest update sometimes refuse to work in Cubase (5.5), usually a re-load of the project however does the trick and its all working again.

Thank god it seems fixed. Wouldve been a serious deal breaker to wait for a few months for something like that. I've been looking for a replacement of the FL Studio (re-wired to Cubase) for drum tweaking for ages. Have tried a lot of different plugins, made some silly purchases and ultimately I'm ho...
