    This. I'm suspicious that there is same team behing GarageBand iOS which is resposible for iTunes catastrophe :-D

    GarbageBand is very unintuitive to me and very uninspiring. I want to like it. I made one track with it, but it was frustrating and I felt like the app was working against me. I think it knew I was a Nanostudio guy and resented me trying to use it... and I think Siri was hiding stuff from me. I’m certain it is a big conspiracy by Apple.

    Regarding GarbageBand: Yeah agree on that but it’s disturbing that, on the iPhone version, swapping sound on a synth is three clicks away and nested in a menu. At least I haven’t figured it out. That’s sort of lame ux as it’s one of the most used functions.

    Damn, I thought Caustic was Android-only but that might have been way back. Downloaded it now and will fiddle with it to see what it does.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   1 week 5 days ago

    Caustic similar at first sight, but different in user experience. It have vocoder, separate synths and rack-like effects. And skins, lol. But only iphone version, not adaptive.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   1 week 6 days ago

    Garbage Band is the best all rounder for the moment, but for something more Nanostudio-y have a look at Caustic to get you by.

    NS2 is not waterproofed.

    I don’t mean to be a dick but I’m on a typical Mediterranean vacay right now and am fantasizing about what a day on the beach could be with ns2. I

    I’ve given up on the platform for the time being. For example Gadget sounds great but has a completely useless sequencer. Its shit (or I am) cause I don’t get the unintuitive interaction there It’s the same with every damn app I use/try so I solely use Logic and Live mostly. ns1 is the only thing that holds all parts together but it feels and old and is unfortunately uninspirering to me mostly.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   1 week 6 days ago

    Yeah, there is no comparing a single synth app to the workflow of NS1, and I haven’t found an app on the Appstore that is more useful for getting things done than NS1. At least for me. There are DAW out there that are popular, and depending upon how one works can be quite useful, but I click better with NS1 than any othe DAW I have tried (iOS or otherwise).

    They all suck in comparison to what is likely to come. That’s what I’m actually whining about

    “Is there any drawback with using the lightning to headphone adaptor?”

    No, but it get’s difficult when you want to use headphones, uae a MIDI controller, and power the iPad/iPhone. Audio jacks just make the whole thing more convienient. Those who don’t use MIDI controllers will not have much of a problem I think, and my strategy is to mostly just use the touchscreen ‘keyboards’ on my iPhone (which doesn’t have audio jacks) and primarily use MIDI controller(s) on the iPad. I have only found one adaptor that allows MIDI, audio, & power. It shouldn’t be that difficult a thing in 2018.

    “Don’t get me wrong or do if you wish) and yes, I get the whole one man-job thing, but sometimes the eternal wait and this yes saying-forum is just frustrating...”

    Understandable, but the long-term strategy of Blip Interactive seems to be not to release buggy apps. Delayed release is better than buggy apps. Buggy apps are hugely frustrating and really alienate customers. Also, there was a super long wishlist that we created on this forum. He can’t get all of it done prior to release (audio tracks being one feature slated for post-launch) but from the release screen shots, there is a lot going on that looks like it is even more than what we requested. I dunno, but for me it looks like it will be well worth the wait.

    So far, Blip created a great app (NS1) and we all were really satisfied using it. We would like a shorter wait for NS2, but shit happens. We haven’t paid a single dime for NS2 and really have nothing to complain about. Blip has no obligation to ever create a single app ever again. However, with enough positive encouragement on this forum from Matt’s fans, maybe he’ll be encouraged to overcome the thankless 16+ hour days and create a rock-solid fantastic app that we will all love to use for many years to come. I’ll be a part of the “yes-saying forum” so long as that seems to help encourage the completion of NS2.

    “Isn't now the perfect time to get creative with all the apps we already own? ;)”

    Very true. I empathize with those who lost NS1 due to upgrading to iOS 11, but for those who still have NS1, it still does everything that it ever did. Also there are every week, and sometimes every day, new synth and FX apps coming out. It is almost impossible to keep up with the apps I buy. We have so many tools at our disposal it is freaking crazy. The frustration comes from needing a good tool like NS2 to put the whole collection of apps into a useable workflow.

    Re: above, get Apple’s lightning to USB adaptor. Gives you a USB-A port and lightning for power. Then connect the USB port to any of the supported USB/Midi interfaces out there. (Needs to be class compliant and have it’s own power essentially)

    Every time I get the email saying this thread has new replies I race here hoping to see “Nanostudio 2 is live on the AppStore!!! OMG!!!” but alas I am always let down. :)

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   2 weeks 7 hours ago

    There are adaptors that can charge and give you your headphone output at the same time.

    I’ve never had a lightning port go on me yet and have used them since the iPhone 5 and iPad Air.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   2 weeks 13 hours ago

    Erm... how do you charge it then?
    Also, using many Lightning devices over the years, I had to learn that very frequent plugging/unplugging sooner or later kills the connector.
    And with a few cpu-hungry synths or FX plugins and a bright screen, the battery drains quickly.

    "Is there any drawback with using the lightning to headphone adaptor?"

    No drawback at all. Unless you don't like dongles. But then the headphone itself is a sort of 'dongle' anyway.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   2 weeks 20 hours ago

    Is there any drawback with using the lightning to headphone adaptor? I wouldn’t get a 10.5 now. I absolutely love mine but the new ones are supposedly a big step up in power.

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   2 weeks 1 day ago

    unless duets will be a NS3 in-app purchase :-)

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   2 weeks 1 day ago

    I thought about this a bit more shimmy: Siri integration is conceivable for NS3. She could collaborate with us and even sing duets. ...but then Apple gets half of the royalties.

    “Unless it's Nano, cause I won't know the difference.”

    “.. weather report : breezy”

    LMAO!!
    This is pretty funny! Nano has been sending cryptic messages to us all along. HA HA!
    Someone please help dendy get up off the floor when he’s done laughing.

    I imagine that Matt is so buried in code for 16+ hour long days that he wouldn’t notice a blatant post on this forum. NS1 was super stable, and I bet he’s making NS2 just as stable - details that we may not even see when we get to use it, but we all know that we will be able to rely upon it and take for granted just how well it works. Unlike many other apps...

    Congrats Cinebient! I’m jealous. I will need to get a new iPad when NS2 comes out, but I am thinking I will buy when the newest iPads come out sans audio jack. Then the iPads with audio jacks will be on sale, I think. Or maybe the rumor isn’t true about the audio jacks disappearing. I hope it isn’t true...
