    Just tested bandcamp's player on my iPhone, it works.

  • ** nanostudio songs **   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Problem with facebook is that it requires flash to play sound files, and... um... well, you know why that won't work for sharing songs made with iDevices, right?

  • Two issues   7 years 9 weeks ago

    I can't seem to be able to pull files off of NanoSync, either =/

    **edit** apparently I can't use Get From on .trg files/folders but I can pull individual wav files out of it.

    Great, I think at this point resistance is futile. Good luck with the development of the universal app, looking forward to it already.

    I just noticed that the free part of Soundcloud is limited and you have to pay to get more... Even though I will probably never reach Soundcloud's limits, I don't like being limited :-P so I went out on a Google Search (ok ok I just googled "Soundcloud alternative") and found some interesting things...

    bandcamp.com
    mixcloud.com
    fairtilizer.com

    Does anyone know any other alternatives, and what are your opinions on these? :-P

  • ** nanostudio songs **   7 years 9 weeks ago

    I've been using NanoStudio but I don't really mind to be honest. Your version needs 2 less shift keys for lazy people.

    Yep "more effects" was probably around update 2 or 3 on my list. Trouble is at the moment that I can see iPad getting in between update 1 and update 2.

    I tried hacking together a quick look-ahead limiter in a day, the idea being that at least for V1.0 it could be a handy little 'set and forget' unit on the main mix. Trouble is that I wasn't happy with it and had to make some ruthless choices about what to cut to get it out.

    I agree EG, compression and limiter would be great, together with a bitcrush preset in the Eden waveshaper at least. I hear the odd conflicting requirement though - some say they'd be happy with it over the main mix, others would like it on a per track basis.

    The main mix would make for a simpler UI and less CPU usage. Per track is definitely more flexible, and since it's quite easy on the synth to get some nasty clipping caused by a resonant filter, compression would be great there.

  • ** nanostudio songs **   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Created a group called "nanostudio" (no capitals... @Blip: do you prefer "Nanostudio" or "nanostudio"?) at SoundCloud. Need a lot of time to make some useful music though, because I'm not a musician and I usually totally suck at making music :-P

    I hate to ask after you worked so hard on Version 1.0 but has a more advanced effects and mixing section crossed your mind? I understand I/0 and interfacing with other apps is first priority which is great for people like me who want to also use other apps in our productions. However, I'd be willing to put money into a mastering "mini-suite". The exceptional DSP abilities you have shown with the original release of NanoStudio makes me want to see what a EQ, Comp, and Limiter would sound like coming from you. On the other hand, other apps can do this, I just think it would be a nice increase to the workflow if you could bus an instance of Eden to an EQ, mix it with a TRG bus, and then compress it. Perhaps just food for thought. Take some time off though. Rake in a little well deserved green before you start on an update. Im excited to see where this app goes in the coming months.

  • Can't load?   7 years 9 weeks ago

    > That said, i couldn't seem to find a way to make it save anywhere but in the Demo folder

    Ah yes that's done like this:

    - Tap 'Save as'
    - You'll get a keyboard to type the new filename but since you want a different folder tap 'Browse'
    - Go up a level
    - Tap 'New File' and enter the name you'd like

    Firstly, any patch changes you make in Eden are only in volatile memory until you write the patch to the bank. Autosave/save won't write any unwritten patches for you. There was a discussion going on in another thread about this and I think that can be improved in a future update. The golden rule in the meantime is, if you've got a patch you like - write it!

    TRG-16 changes are immediate though - it doesn't have a separate 'bank' memory like the synth patches, its settings are stored inside the project.

    The saving procedure does a bak file swap to help make it more robust - if your project shows a .bak version in the file browser you could try loading that (although the load procedure should automatically try the .bak if the normal load fails).

    The dialogue you're getting is pretty generic and means "something went wrong", but it's odd that the project name it gives is empty. I gather that the project you're loading does have a proper name in the file browser?

    Finally, you can probably say the project file's corrupt if the file browser doesn't show a date/time when the file's selected.

    MSEGs in TRG would be wicked-awesome. And a sidechain compressor >.>

  • Can't load?   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Okay - I tried renaming and saving a demo, and it worked fine. That said, i couldn't seem to find a way to make it save anywhere but in the Demo folder... Maybe related, i dunno.

    Let me know if you want me to try anything else.

    Cheers,

  • Response so far   7 years 9 weeks ago

    I too hope the long effort you've clearly put into the design works out well for you financially. The app market can be a bit triksy that way, but it sounds like you're off to a strong start. I've certainly been pimping NanoStudio over on the other music forums that I frequent.

    The response from the Japanese market is good news; they're a discerning bunch and they have some scary-good musicians and producers over there these days. Asia in general is starting to push the musical envelope instead of just copying western influences, but IMO Japan is really leading the charge. So much of our high end gear these days is designed and made by Japanese companies any more.

  • Can't load?   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Hi there,

    I totally understand the bug thing (I'm a MAX/MSP programmer). Even though I haven't been able to reload anything, as far as I'm concerned, this is easily the greatest mobile music app so far. I'm in total awe of Eden - can't believe those sounds are coming out of my iPad, and I'm super super excited to see this grow. So... Let's trouble shoot.

    - Firstly, in case it makes a difference, I am using a 32GB iPad, wifi only.

    - I should also tell you (and then problem could be this simple), I assumed that when I saved the project, everything about that project would be saved - I didn't save my Eden or TRG-16 set-ups individually. That said, it won't load the project at all. If it were just the wrong synth or samples, I'd assume this, but it simply wouldn't load anything associated with the project.

    - The samples I've been using were all custom ones, loaded in by me via Nanosync. They functioned fine - I doubt they were corrupted.

    - and finally, the wording was:

    (in the orange bar across the top of the error message): Failed to load project ''

    (in the white field below the orange bar): The project file could not be loaded!

    Oh, and then at the bottom, a little checkmark and the work 'OK'.

    I'll try your experiment shortly and report back.

    Best,
    Joel

    drelbs - I was a bit annoyed when after having spent 2 months on the whole NanoSync thing, Apple announces virtually the week after that they've made USB transfers available with File Sharing :(

    I haven't investigated it much, but I think the main problem with File Sharing is that it only works in the root directory. I can probably get round this by getting NanoSync to zip up the files with the directory structure it wants, send it over USB and then have NanoStudio unzip it all to the right place at the other end.

    Does it really only work with iOS 4? That would make it unsuitable for many users.

  • NanoStudio on iPad   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Yes exactly that - the iPhone app will become a universal app for no extra charge at some point in future, but then iPad users can pay a little extra to get some extra tracks/instruments (basically something most iPad users will probably want).

    Plus it's 25% discounted at the moment. What more could you want? :)

  • The ability to merge two projects.
  • Copy and pasting of midi content from one project into another.

    Already, I've been working on projects and realized that they are complimentary parts to the same song! It would be great to be able to quickly merge and/or paste together content from multiple projects.

  • Wishlists   7 years 9 weeks ago

    Hit post too soon...

    PS> I don't want a scrollable keyboard, but an option to set the key it's based on would be excellent. And I'd love multi-samples (even just a couple) but I can live without them.

    Looking forward to midi support!

  • NanoStudio on iPad   7 years 9 weeks ago

    First, congrats on a fantastic app, I've been looking forward to it since seeing the YouTube demo a few weeks ago.

    To get back to the Universal App point, does this mean that you will (likely) upgrade the current app to enable full resolution viewing on the iPad, while offering an in-app upgrade to enable some iPad specific features? That should work for most users.

    The reason I would like to know is that I'd like to try NanoStudio out right now, but I intend to use it mostly on the iPad. It would be a real bummer if I buy it now and a separate iPad version comes out down the line.

  • Wishlists   7 years 9 weeks ago

    You guys should consider using File Sharing in iTunes to import/export samples/mixdowns/midi.

    I've got a couple of apps that use it now and it's nifty (essentially a USB transfer through iTunes. Requires iOS4 and iTunes 9.2 - open your device in iTunes, click the Apps tab, then scroll to the bottom. You can upload/download multiple files at once!)

  • Wishlists   7 years 9 weeks ago

    AudioCopy/Paste yes ASAP (but take a break post-release, though!, you've earned it IMO)

    Multi-samples... yes that would indeed be useful for phrases that range across many octaves, but honestly I'd rather have a few audio tracks first, especially one that could be "frozen" as a "reference track" and excluded from mix-down to wave. I know you're familiar with what I'm asking for here because we've discussed it on other threads before, but for the other onlookers, the basic need is to AudioPaste or Import some mixdown from another iDevice app into NanoStudio so you can listen to it as a reference track while building parts up in NanoStudio, then either AudioCopy or Export the mixdown from NanoStudio to some other iDevice app.

    What I'm really shooting for is the ability to create parts in all the various "good" iDevice apps, letting each do what they do best, then AudioCopy or export their wave mixdowns into something like Multitrack DAW for a final mixdown. Of course to do this, you need either a live transport like ReWire for the iDevice platform, or else you need to be able to listen to wave mixes from other apps in *your* app to ensure that the new stuff you're building in your app is being created with the right feel and timing.

    Slidable keyboard... BIG YES. It doesn't have to be a fugly UI change, and it would be very helpful for folks like me who play riffs nearly an octave up or down from my "rooted" chord position. Any chord that is thumb-rooted on C or D I can't riff into 4th or 5th or 7th below and then resolve back. And I can't play *any* chord and associated riffs that are thumb-rooted on A or B (and barely G) unless I do the "narrow" key widths, which feels a bit "smallish" to me even on the iPad. I'd like to adjust the thumb note exactly where i want it to give me room to riff both down and up.

  • help!!! how do you set bpm???   7 years 9 weeks ago

    It was a bit annoying to have to tuck something like tempo under 'Tools', but I couldn't find another good place for it.

    Really 'Tools' should be called 'Various song stuff you need from time to time but not that often' but that wouldn't fit.
