    Words won't be needed on face recognition enabled forum. We just make faces to comminucate.
    Clearly this gets us closer to total telepathy, which will make iPhones obsolete. Apple will still find a way to charge us a monthly fee for telepathy though.

    Hm, looks like you was at some dev workshop in Apple, i have bad feeling about how it can impact (harm) your future developement... like dropping sequencer in NS2.x and so on ..

    This is excellent, excellent news!!!

    I am really looking forward to getting into this new iteration of NanoStudio. NanoStudio is the only workstation I've ever used since getting into electronic music composition about 4 years ago. I do plan to expand to work with others, but NS just has worked really well for me so far.

    In the Eden presets, I almost always find myself using two main voices: 7th Heaven and Distorted View. I use others, but those two are *mine*. I hope there will be others that I love in this one.

    Thank you so much for channeling your self-discipline to continue to create. It's a thing to be respected.

    Here is my Soundcloud page, by the way (all NanoStudio):

    Has Blip Interactive decided upon a new strategy for the forum? A new NS2 section perhaps? Or let the threads fall where they may in a hopelessly tangled mess of confused NS1/NS2 crosstalk?

    Thanks for the tip dendy! I have MIdiBridge & MidiBus but never used them since NS1 didn't have MIDI out. MIdiFire looks like a really useful app for the new year, which will henceforth be referred to as Year 1 A.N. (anno nano2). I would love to see a PC version added, but just iOS is all I really need. Now I'll start planning a way to hook up all my old iDevices via MIDI a la a future/retro mad scientist that I've always aspired to become.

    NS3 will be released when iOS 22 goes 128 bit.
    I haven't been keeping up in iOS 11. What's the appeal to upgrade? Are there any benefits for iOS musicians?

    stiksi, slam-cut: sync multiple devices or even idevice and desktop app (but works only on mac) using CoreMIDI : https://audeonic.com/midifire/

    lol, just realized I referred to NS2 as NS3, getting wayyyyyy ahead there, I meant NS2, anyway, updated to IOS11 this week, sooooo...R.I.P. NS1 :( Well.... I updated my Air2 , I still have an Ipad 2 so Ill just run NS1 on that and use Eden as a synth and record audio to my Air2. But its kinda a bummer not having it on my Air2, IOS11 is running great, actually better than expected. I feel like there should be some kind of memorial for NS1, lol.

    I never thought of that detail, that my own presets aren't available elsewhere for other projects! That's a cool idea. I guess I could make my own personal preset collection folder, if I dive that deep. Thanks again for the responses!

    this looks amazing!

    The "through Wi-Fi" part sounds dodgy. It is worth looking into though.
    I haven't searched yet, but I hope there is a useful lightning cable splitter to allow charging & MIDI at the same time, because I'd really like to be connected via cables when possible.

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   3 days 12 hours ago

    Weren't there a couple of apps that specialized in MIDI syncing multiple iDevices through wifi?

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   3 days 20 hours ago

    Good point dendy! Almost forgot about the desktop version.

    Kitejan: are you moving projects to Abelton Live on a PC or Mac? If on PC you could just use MIDI out in NS2 to play Eden presets in PC version of NS1, a la dendy. You make a good point about the unique sonic character of synths (hard or soft), and I think a VST version might make sense, but I think the best way for us to guarantee use of Eden is to invest in used iDevices. Now that the new iPhones have been announced, I bet prices on used or even new iPhone 6+ or 5 would be super cheap. The question will be how to hook up two iPhones/iPads: will male to male lightning plugs work to transmit MIDI? I doubt it will be that simple.

    What Dendy said!

    I've got my hands full enough right now. Maybe one day if there's enough interest in it then Eden could be made an IAP in NS2. But personally I feel that by then everyone would have moved on. Also, releasing an IAP synth which would basically be a crapper version of Obsidian probably wouldn't make sense to many buyers.

    You never know, maybe a new synth from Eden's developer might be OK.

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   4 days 2 hours ago

    it would be nice, but because Blip Interactive is small company with limited resources, i prefer invest all time to NS2 developement ;-)

    maybe later when we will have universal version, with audio tracks, and few another goodies.. then maybe Matt can hire some other coder and give him task to convert Eden code to AUv3 :-)

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   4 days 3 hours ago

    Is good to have a choice, plus every synth have his own thing, plus I have a bounce of presets bank ready done for it...

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   4 days 12 hours ago

    My thinking about an AU version of Eden "as is" (and the legacy NS1 effects) is that both have a character of their own that is (I think) hard to get with other synths. That to me was always the strength - Eden had its own character that worked. I fully expect Obsidian to be much much better - but I have my doubts that it will sound the same as Eden even when configured the same (but I could be wrong - what do I know? :-)). I've been moving some NS1 projects over to Ableton Live with a view to performing live so mostly its been transferring the rendered NS1 channel WAV files then chopping them into the clips for the session view. However I want to play certain key parts "live" and I thought I would try and recreate some sounds in Ableton (the included analog synth - whatever its called). I would have thought any dual oscillator synth would sound similar to the "primitive" Eden - but I couldn't even get close.

    Hence thinking that just having Eden as an AU (and who knows offered as a VST/AU for desktop DAWs) plus the Effects means we can use our old NS1 projects in the new world of NS2 (and even in the wonderful world of Desktop DAWs) with minimal change or re-engineering.

    Personally I would be happy to pay for the AU version of Eden and I would be very interested in the VST version for the reasons above. not that I know anything about iOS or VST programming but I would have thought the technical challenges of just the sound engines would be a lot less than the whole sequencer package.....
