Hi! So I have a (embarrassing) question regarding Fxpansion Geist!

This is my first drum machine i've ever worked with, and I ran into an issue lol

How do I assign my audio clips to pads?

Listen I know this is an absolute "noobish" question, but I really have no idea how to work this interface.

If anyone knows of any great videos/blogs about FxPansion beginners, i'd love to know about it!

thanks for all who don't flame me >.<

I messed with it a little a while ago. If I recall, there is a lock button just below the browser that you turn off or something. Then you just drag and drop. Look into that maybe. Good luck!!

HA

Literally got this today...

But What I found out, and maybe it's not the correct way of doing it... but you click on the sample you want, then you click on the pad to assigned it to. You then click Audio under Extract, or Audio + Pin (Honestly, no clue what the diffrence is) and then you have it assigned to a pad.

No clue if that is the correct way or not...

Geist is very flexible. Give yourself a lot of time to explore it, and to get used to its workflow. Once you've got it, you'll have a hard time looking back.

I disagree. I have Geist and hardly use it. Its a good drum machine but I personally prefer drum racks which says a lot because I dislike Live devices for the most part.
