I am still lurking around here from time to time in hope they might change their attitude. But - nope.
It really makes me sort of sad to see what happended after Roli took over. While they told us nothing would change - the exact opposite happened. Now their forums are flooded with spam, they do no longer reply here in the forums - at least not reagarding Geist 2 and its future. There are no updates anymore. Silence. It really looks like Geist ist dead and this is a ghost town now.
No, this is not the fxpansion I loved and used to support for several years. When they had prices for beta testers and communicated like crazy with each and every user. I had the feeling to really be in contact with them, have influence over what's going on as a user and see their products thrive while being a part of a larger team.
Let's face it. Geist 2 has been abandoned. Yes, you can still buy it here. But look at the update history. The last "beta test" has never been finished and it never was something you could honestly call a beta. The whole product was still unfinished when it finally came out. I asked for participating in the beta tests right on time before it came out - no response. The shadows of Roli were already there, I believe. It's a shame. Roli changed the fxpansion support and custormer relationship for the worst that has been imaginable.
I will have a look at this for another couple of weeks as a silent guest. But to be honest - for the first time ever I am thinking about selling all my fxpansion products. Because I can see no future here...
