Re: Sample loops in 3/4 meter

No (this is an old thread) (I obviously haven't been using Geist, and unless they have fixed it - and have real-time audio timestretch in Live, I won't be using Geist 2 either). Maschine is much better, IMO, especially with the new update to 2.65 (I just ordered a Jam... :), and I know they are work...

Yes, I have Maschine Mk2, and am trying to use it to trigger the pads in Geist standalone. It only seems to trigger the engines for pattern play. I have tried to use the templates in Maschine with Geist as a VST, which doesn't work at all. I don't know if this is a limitation of Geist or of Maschine...

I agree that Geist is fine for what it is, and Drew is conscientious. Still, the program is useless to me as is; I have refocused on Live 9 Beta, which does implement audio to midi; just not as well and conveniently as Geist, but it does it in 3/4 AND 6/8 (And 5/4, and 9/8, etc, etc....) I just wish...

This is not possible if one is to maintain a consistent BPM between a 3/4 audio and the step sequencer, since Geist interprets a 12 step loop as 3 measures of 4/4 time (and ALL audio loops in the same way, by merely assuming the length of the loop is a multiple of 4 steps), not 4 measures of 3/4 tim...

Wasoota and I may be the only two actual musicians trying to use Geist............ The difficulty arises when trying to synch (BPM) audio loops (which may actually be real music)....... (There IS a real difference between 3/4, 6/8, and 2/4 Triplets.....) (Actually for Flamenco I don't need the 6/8, ...

Time Signatures

It just occurred to me that FXpansion may not know how to properly define and implement time signatures. I hereby would like to offer free technical support to the Geist developers to educate them in the arcane concepts of time signatures so they can successfully implement in Geist, so that Geist ca...

Re: Akai MPK Mini and Geist.

You can probably do it through the "Program" button by setting the programs to different MIDI channels in the Editor (Maybe) But the padKontrol works much better with Geist (you can set eqch scene to a MIDI channel, and use all 16 pads....) Hi Guys, I recently purchased Geist and would lik...

Geist does not do Time Signatures

This will be my final post on the topic, but it is important that prospective users understand this. Much of today's music is in duple meter (2/4 or 4/4), which is extremely limiting to professional musicians worldwide. Geist only "knows about" duple meter, or 4/4 time, because it characte...

Sample loops in 3/4 meter

Hi, all, (Update: the following only is true in Geist standalone, which has no ability to specify time signatures for audio sync. In vst mode... at least for Live 9... it uses the time signature of the host, so it is not an issue.....) I have a number of loops in 3/4 time, 8th and 16th notes (so 12 ...

APC40 and Geist Standalone

I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but my APC40 can control faders 1-8 of the mixer engine and the master, as well as the pans of the mixer engine (device control knobs) without even running Live (the APC40 is dark). (I'm using a padKontrol for the pads). I'm still trying to figure out if I ca...

Preset, kit, engine, names

I often save presets, kits, engines, etc to files and then reload them later. I can't find a location in Geist that tells me which kit I'm working on (or if it hasn't been saved yet). If these elements are loaded from files, I think it would be a real help to keep a current log of where the element ...
