I'm considering Geist 2 to be a dead product at this point.

I lost my $100 upgrade fee, and I'm over it.

I used to recommend Geist all over the forums. Daresay I was responsible for more than a few sales over the years. Now I'm advising people not to buy it, and I won't be surprised if fxpansion announces they are stopping development at some point. Something is obviously up.

I strongly recommend returning Roli the favour and discouraging other producers from purchasing their crap.

Wow. What the...?
Looks like fxpansion is being ripped apart!
That seriously doesn't look good.
Next we can't login anymore?
I wonder whether it was a good idea to join Roli...?
Don't think so.

Anyways... Wish you all the best!

Happy holidays.

So... with these spam messages only left in the GEIST 2 forum... What else needs to be said?

@Drew, @Laurence... What has happened to Geist 2 development? Could you please tell me?
There is a long list of issues and feature requests - yet there have not been any updates for many months now!

Please be honest: Is Geist 2 done?
Has Roli told you not to develop it any further?
Is that the deal?

This was going on in October.
Music startup Roli adds Pharrell Williams as new investor and chief creative officer
https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/25/music ... e-officer/

A member of an entire sub-culture built around a sampling drum sequencer. Hmmm!
Geist will more than likely pass under the radar of this multi-millionaire but in a parallel (or Pharellel, 8) ) universe he recognises it's brilliance and sells it to the entire big boys club of Rap who endorse it and invest in it's development as the next big thing in music production.

FXPansion/Roli then sell it to someone like Dre who then goes on to rename it as Beats, or Actual Beats - Actual Beats by Dre. Of course, everyone would call it Actu-al, 'cause you can actually make beats on it instead of just listen to them and it's an actualisation of your inner world in musical form. Before you know it, it's on the iPhone (exclusively at first with a tap tempo app made for the iWatch), then on Android, then smart TV because...full market penetration.

Dre buys shares in LG who release an enhanced version on WebOS that allows you to sample direct from TV (in this parallel universe copyrights are more relaxed). A year later LG announce that WebOS is coming to tablets and will feature built in freeview and streaming of all subscription content. It will be bundled with a cut down version of Actual Beats X. Unfortunately Apple being Apple end up buying out Dre, announcing that Actual Beats will now be an exclusive product for Apple and incorporated into Garage Band. They rename it, somewhat unimaginatively, iSampler.

All ends will though (this being a parallel universe). One year later Apple open source their OS and donate 10% of all future profits to the betterment of humankind. iSampler is used by an astronaut on the way to the new Mars colony during downtime making front page news and topping the charts as the greatest musical work of all modern times. Even Kanye’s post-singularity AI persona endorses it. The AR Orchestra add-on gains in popularity. In the future neo-classical music is part of the new pop culture - part of the new renaissance - and people speak in metaphors telepathically.

It all started with Geist. :idea:

HAPPY NEW YEAR everybody!!

It's 3:46am. I've woken up and had a nice glass of red. You know what I'm enjoying..."Strictly for the Hardcore" - still mental after all this time and the best damn Geist demo in existence today. I don't care anymore...enjoying it for what it is.

Hey all, can I suggest taking to twitter to put a bit of pressure on to get Gesit 2 updated properly - unfortunately this forum doesn't seem to be doing the trick.

I've started the ball rolling on my twitter @twinmonosounds by posting to the fxpansion and roli accounts with #abandonware #fixgeist2 tags.

I don't like to have to do it, but I can't see any other way of putting the pressure on. And I love Geist 2 so I want them to fix it rather than have to go to other software! That said, I am back on Geist 1 for the time being and the dreaded Mashine is looking ever more tempting... 8)
