other functions missing from pad display:
pad solo
pad rename (srsly)
level faders

Users to navigate away across various window tabs *so often* when using Geist - symptomatic of a UI problem. i know fxpansion hate it's mention but motu/uvi bpm had this aspect nailed.

That's sort of what my mockup image was directed at. There must be better use of display than huge grids of rectangles displaying. The workflow aspect needs streamlining. The mpc workflow could be first approximation, even better if it could be approved upon. The best interface layout for pad sampl...

please consider bringing in a new UI consultant for Geist 2. It really deserves a fresh critical perspective on that front. I don't just mean cosmetic flourishes, I mean the structural interface design.
Very glad to see a new version is coming.

You're not alone on this. Did you ever find a solution? getting disappearing notes also, since 1.1.3. I've noticed that the Erase-Note function has become eratic when used from a control surface - often becoming totally unresponsive. Using note erase from the vst front panel will often snap it into...

agh, i just found it, right click contextual menu on pad grid. Why it isn't under either the dedicated "Save" menu, or the "Pad/Layers" option.. So many of the design decisions are counter-intuitive to me.
thanks for pointing it out.

save sample (e.g. "save current layer sample")

i've sampled some audio now i want to save it to a folder in my sample collection. no can do.

instead have to "save current pad" + samples, then use osx finder to clear up the mess.

Here's a separate thread post on why these Maschine mappings are completely hopeless within Ableton Live, and for me at least, partly broken even in standalone mode. http://www.fxpansion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=87961#87961 please read before you try to get this to work, and save yourself a lot of ...

Maschine mapping trainwreck, both in standalone & in Ableton Live

The Maschine controller maps that FXpansion promote here http://www.fxpansion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=65265#65265 are a complete trainwreck when working within Ableton Live, and somewhat broken in standalone. Here's an incomplete list of all the failed mappings that I found. It's not exhaustive, u...

'Global' tune mode

'Pad/Layer' page: Having to chose between two separate knobs for musical semitones & fine tuning doesn't make intuitive sense for a drum machine, when drums are, for the most part, inherently inharmonic. And operationally, it's clunky having to continually flick back & forth between two knob...

re: old vs new envelope modes, why not simply have a toggle mode between 'normal' 4 ADSR knobs/faders, and graphic ADSR nodes with curves?

The locks only work for the decay and sustain portions, and you're only able to lock the vertical positioning of these two points. The locks have no effect on the release time or the hold time. If you extend the hold time, then the release "start" time will get pushed ahead. Likewise if y...

Geist GUI improvements

The GUI suffers from clutter, which in turn bogs down the workflow. I was pulled over to Geist from Motu BPM (due to it's lack of development), but in comparison to BPM interface, Geist would benefit hugely from some focus & minimalism. One aspect of this, is forcing the user to navigate more pa...

broken maschine mappings

There are some problems with the Maschine map that's being provided here. At least with Maschine 1. - controller pages for mute, solo, pan are being sent to the focused pad instead of the designated pads. The Geist mapping page needs to have each of these mappings changed to focus 'off' - the toggle...
