  • NS2 Workarounds   14 hours 6 min ago

    I have nearly every Korg synth and haven’t used a single one in any tracks since I got an iPhone 3gs because of the difficulty using them, aside from one aborted attempt within Gadget. I hope NS2 will enable those synths to be a part of my workflow.
    I don’t want to spend more money or time on an app I won’t need once NS2 is out, so instead of buying Xequence I want to try using MusicStudio, since I own it. The description says it has MIDI out, but I’m having trouble finding that function. I also fiddled around with AUM (which I’ve had since it came out but never used - notice a theme of unused apps?), but that didn’t get too far before my brain started frying and I tried to find answers in the manual. Not quite sure how AUM channels fit in this technique. Is the MIDI out (in this case from MusicStudio) to synth app (Animoog for this experiment) happening outside of the AUM channels? Should AUM just be routing audio from Animoog to Audioshare? Wondering if AB wouldn’t be just as good...

    Xequence, Slam-Cut. Xequence. The MIDI input is very similar to NS1, and this hooks up to AUM beautifully.

    I myself can’t wait for NS2 though. MIDI out direct to Gadget, and everything else handled in the app itself. ^^ Obsidian will be getting one helluva workout.

    Thanks for that tip syrupcore! I haven’t tried using AUM, so maybe I should do a dry run of that technique using some other app that has MIDI out so that I get familiar with AUM.

    NS2 will have MIDI out. You can host non-AU synths in something like AUM and just point an NS2 MIDI track at it. Edit your face off and when you're satisfied or ready to mix the whole thing down, record the entire track into AUM and import it to a pad as a sample. Or use AUM to record perfectly trimmed longish loops to import. That is, until audio tracks land in NS2—then you can just import the entire recording to an audio track.

    Think the only thing we'll be missing from AB is the handy sidebar to jump to the target app. Surely, AUv3 will take over before long and there will be no need to jump to a separate app anyway.

    I do miss the old AB workflow when we could sample directly into Eden. But since that hasn't worked in a couple of years, I don't think I'll be missing it any more than I do now once NS2 lands. :)

    NS2 won't have AB support? I guess I missed that bit in the feature threads. That really does limit the connectivity options. The only other work around I can think of would involve a second device and feeding the audio from that device into NS2.

    Blip, the app is perfect, we won't notice whatever you are trying to perfect at this point ...
    For us, all of it will be brand new !!!

    just joking, take your time !!! but really don't go too deep into the perfection lake... it is a bit of a dangerous place !!

    take care.... tik tok tik tok :)

    Oh, yeah... Makes more sense when I read it like Dr. Seuss.

    No, it's about the poetry of polished knobs.

    Glad to hear all is working well. We’ll expect some great music out of you now. :-)

    Thanks, everyone for the tips.
    Slam I ended up running into what you said would happen.
    I picked up a dollar router from a thrift store, got it home, and wham... wouldnt get thru the setup process... What is that called again? Pavlos Theory of Rationality or something?
    "If anything can't go right it won't?"... hmm lol
    Anyways, i did what you said next sort of. My boss had a router that was already set up but no longer needed. He let me have it.
    I went home and it works perfectly without internet.
    So again, thanks everyone for your advices

    See page 1 of this discussion about 3/4 of the way down. Matt says he gave up on icloud for sharing and went with Dropbox.

  • Cryptocurrency to Fund Nanostudio   5 days 5 hours ago

    :-/ ??? Wha...?

    Suomi huumori?

    Is that like “give me liberty or give me death”?

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   5 days 6 hours ago

    Will there be Dropbox support in NS2? I find it dearly needed for loading and saving songs and samples.

  • Cryptocurrency to Fund Nanostudio   5 days 13 hours ago

    I certainly crave polished knobs or none at all! Were they even from the Polish police, no knobs unpolished would sate y'all!

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

    I’m patiently enjoying the delay. Actually I’m frantically trying to finish old NS1 projects before NS2 is launched since that will unintentionally make NS1 my unwanted step-child. So don’t rush the beta testing. Better to make us wait and make NS2 awesome.

    So you must be the “guy on the inside”. Tell me, will we be getting the same feature set as what was promised to us for the “Christmas release”, or are we getting a few more surprises in the initial NS2 release than what was promised?

    Also, could you talk Matt into releasing a few more screenshots (specifically of the various built-in effects) to whet our appetites? Thanks mate.

    Hey guys,

    I'm not going to speak on Matt's behalf - I don't know his day-to-day - but I can tell you he is putting the pedal to the metal to get NS2 out.

    He has a small closed group of beta testers and there's been constant bug reporting/fixing going on throughout development.

    I don't believe the launch issue is bug testing so much as finalizing everything and putting out a product that is truly remarkable, which I can attest it is!

    I don't know of a launch date and I'm sure it's still floating a bit but I'm sure it's around the corner. Patience will be rewarded, trust me! :)

    PS> from my perspective Matt gave up launching in a very lucrative time period (holiday window) so you can see that as a fair sized cost. To justify that, it wouldn't make sense to just polish a few... knobs?.... uh, you get the analogy.

    Hang in there!

  • Cryptocurrency to Fund Nanostudio   6 days 2 hours ago

    Matt said they're probably wouldn't be open beta testing but that doesn't mean a few people couldn't get test flight invites :)

    @nano How come I keep seeing your post being reupped? oO

  • Finally!   6 days 6 hours ago

    nanostudio closed ..

    @ ios 11 installed :
    - everything what can be turned off is .. off (settings)
    - hm
    - nanostudio data = imagam (intua-ftp-caustic) & audioshare
    @ waiting 4 nanostudio 2 :
    - sound bank cleanup & update
    @ ready 4 nanostudio 2 :

    i like :
    - intua bounds with auto-fades
    - impc pro resampling pads
    - impc pro recording to pads
    - caustic's cooperation with audioshare

    i do not like :
    - intua " how to select bound "
    - impc pro " no bound auto-fades "
    - impc pro " no zoom to bound , no zoom to all ... "

    hm .. was day

    Wow. That is an EXCELLENT find. Let’s get one more verification that it works and then make a new thread and sticky it.
