FXpansion – Geist2

Geist2 is a “streamlined environment for beat creation and sound sculpting” (source: FXpansion), think Akai MPC on steroids as a software package.

For the second generation of this software package we were asked to design a set of scalable and dynamic controls (“transmod” knobs and faders) and to supervise the application’s look&feel and UX.
