fuck you FXPansion, i hope Roli gets what they want out of you guys then proceeds to fire all of you. What a terrible disappointment.

Yeah, I've given up too. Very sad.

I am now really enjoying an MPC Touch and thinks its incredible! You can find a used one around 350 and get a great controller/sound card (5.7ms roundtrip latency on W10!) and pretty excellent hard/soft integration. Simply message Akai support and they will quickly hook you up with software.

No The MPC can't modulate as deeply as G2, but its VERY capable and is still being updated,

Also, I would say F U Roli. I think FX has always meant well, but they are very inconsistent in updates.

Yeah, I'm done too, even though Geist 1 is/was one of my favourite plugins the lack of support is dsiheartening. I don't hold much hope for Cypher 2 either (started BETA tests in December 2015). So as a Cubase user I went to Groove Agent 4 which does what I need and I will use Strobe 2 till the day it stops working. I guess we just have to wait for the memoires to see what the f**K went on behind the scenes.
What a crying shame.....

Oh and one final word about Cubase and VST 3 and the fact that none of your sequencers were ever solid (Tremor, Strobe, Geist 2 ) what ever the issues were... Maybe just go ask D16 Group what they were doing right...

Maybe Geist is just too fully featured for its own good?

I get very confused using it because I don't know when a bug is causing strangeness or user error. Disappearing MIDI maps, looping artifacts and geist-ly parameter modulations from a 40 minute session today.

I disagree.

FX released Geist 2 knowing very well that it was not ready. They did this to make some quick money before the sale to Roli went public, and they will have known that Roli would be prioritising different projects, and that G2 would likely never reach a properly releasable state.

But they still went ahead and sold it to us....!

here's another one:

check your expanders and try to see if their claims when they advertise it are true.

i have a couple and i noticed that a lot of the cinematic percussion isn't RX2 so it doesn't conform to the host's clock. the expander pack claims that it has "over 1300 RX2 loops"

crap.

It doesn't look like honesty is much of a priority for this company.

:wink:

I've always read to buy software on what it can do now not in the future and I guess that also applies to software you already have. To that end even though as alluded to by FXpansion in this thread they might be working on it, if like many of us it's more hassle than it's worth, just jump ship. £££ I know especially if you've gone guru-geist-geist2 but who's got the time for a bug free Geist 2.0.xxx or a Geist 3 (surely they couldn't) with some wizzy Roli hardware attached?

When I talk to my music pals and mention Geist it's like a girlfriend they can't understand why I'm still with. A spiky girlfriend. CPU spiky.
