Geist can be fun to use, is better at doing certain things than Maschine, Battery and the internal Samplers of Bitwig and Ableton Live.
But...the fact that looping has been left unfixed fills me with concerns and raises questions about other small things that may be going on in the backround. I just can't trust it so would rather use something else that works and rack this hasty purchase up to experience. Sorry FX. Potentially awesome product let down by a too infrequent development.
If a "feature" corrupts the sound to the point where it becomes unusable then that is a serious bug. If left unfixed that does nothing but signal to the customer base that the product has little to no priority and is no longer worth investment.
I couldn't in good conscience encourage anyone to buy it directly or indirectly at this moment in time. It works, yes, you can make music with it but I'm a superstitious dude and the good vibes have gone.
Anyway, who cares. It's all about the talent and determination to create. If Geist works for you it works. If it doesn't it doesn't. An entire hi-spec studio cannot make up for a lack of passion and determination. All the best!
