Hey Guys...

I love your products.... I almost own every single one... just check my purchase history.

I decided to update Geist today after not doing so for a long time... I'm attempting to d/load the latest content files, but it's near impossible. The files are coming through from 7-30kb. Hell... it's even showing the download speed in bytes instead of kilobytes sometimes.

This is simply not acceptable.... It's taken almost 7 hours to get half of the first file...

I've just tested some downloads from 8dio, Soundiron, NI etc... and they're all motoring along like they normally do.

Can someone please look into what's happening with your server???

Mac Pro 3.33 6 Core, 24GB RAM, OS X 10.10.5, Pro Tools HD Native / OMNI, BFD2/3, DCAM, Strobe 2, Geist/2, Tremor, Bloom, Etch, Maul & lots of expansions.

I couldn't agree more! The download speed is really annoying. It starts off hitting 13Meg and then drops straight down and sits around 100k? Whats the deal yo?

Many apologies. Sometimes our servers get hammered. I've moved the Geist Factory content over to our Amazon S3 server, so it should be much quicker now. Please try redownloading the content.
