I made a short video about fxpansion Geist2 and how i use it to remix a loop to customize it for my use. This is the first video of more to come. There are already a lot of tutorials out there and i hope my videos will help nevertheless. Enjoy. 😊
Make sure you have „Slice“ and „Auto Load“ buttons enabled.
Browse to your loop which you want to slice.
Add or delete transient markers as you like.
Press „Done“ and the loop will be sliced and mapped to the pads.
For easier modifying enable „Remix“. This will allow you only to create one step per pad. Of course you can disable it and play more then one pad/slice at once.
I create my music with Presonus Studio One Version 4 Professional. This DAW get’s better and better and i love to work with it. I have Studio One since the first version. In 2010 i bought the first version for 16€/18$. Legal and confident directly at Presonus. They had a NAMM special this year. Or was it 2009 ? Really can’t remember. Anyway, i got a bargain and entered the world of this DAW.
Actually i am guitar player. No profession here. No music here. So still a guitarist ? Let’s say i know some stuff by now. In 2014 i got more into electronic music and decided to produce my own electronic songs. I am still an amateur and learning day in day out.
Since then i bought more and more software. Actually plugins or VSTs. My music is made ITB (In The Box) which means there are no really hardware synths involved in my music making. I own a cheap MIDI 48 keyboard, an AKAI MPK mini II and KORG nano Kontrol. No device makes music on it’s own. For my purpose it’s ok now. Of course i like to expand. But that’s another story.
