  • Is anyone else...   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Hahaha, I'm with you man, I think in the past few days I've checked the forum at least 20 times. Just as excited as you are!

    Learning to wait is the first step to wisdom!

  • Any plans for ipad?   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Aspire as far as you possibly can to make the app universal ; the flexible centerpiece of iOS musos arsenal of toys. So if I've both iPad and iPhone/iPod, it's a portable, pocket sized DAW that I can sync with my larger screened pad as needed (oh yeah, wi-fi sync projects from idevice to idevice - bring on the collab/rmx love). One app fits all sort of solution, yet doesn't need to be priced so prohibitively. You can always offer the option to purchase more tracks/features as an add on.
    The more pervasive you can allow the app to be, the greater the chances are that it stands a very real chance of becoming the de facto peoples choice of iOS sequencers.

  • One thing I'd love to see   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Hi,

    I've found the live/interactive side of Doppler Pad and of Tangible Groove Pad very creative, that type of interaction/live-mode with NS..wow, what a thought!

    Cheers,
    LW.

  • This app looks great so far   7 years 21 weeks ago

  • PDF Manual finished   7 years 21 weeks ago

    I have to be away for a few days - I'm back on the 20th and I don't want it going live while I'm not around. Apple are unlikely to approve it much earlier than that anyway so it's not really an issue.

  • NanoStudio 1.0 has been submitted to Apple   7 years 21 weeks ago

    I´ve never been so excited about an App!!!!!! This is so cool! You´re the best!

  • PDF Manual finished   7 years 21 weeks ago

    must agree: It would be so cool to read what the app is able to do before the release. Pleeeeeeeease (with sugar on top) give us the pdf! :)

    thanks and cheers

    Why is 20th July the earliest date it can go on sale?

    Btw, would love to see the manual xD

  • NanoStudio 1.0 has been submitted to Apple   7 years 21 weeks ago

    So looking forward to this... from now on I'll keep "nanostudio" in the search bar in my app store app so I instantly notice when it is released.

  • NanoStudio 1.0 has been submitted to Apple   7 years 21 weeks ago

    I think everyone registered for the forum has their fingers crossed with ya. ;)

    Here's hoping for a smooth rollout and the news spreads like wildfire.

  • MIDI hardware controller   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Yes I'll definitely be looking at interfacing possibilities in future.

  • Time stretching and Pitch shifting ?   7 years 21 weeks ago

    NanoStudio has an Auto BPM function which will attempt to guess the number of bars in a sample and then pitch it to match the current BPM. It's just a simple playback speed change though so it's only really good for drums. A true resampling algorithm is something in my list of possible future work but I haven't given it much thought yet.

    I've never done any shifting algorithms before, but my gut feel is that it would never be realtime. My PC takes a good few seconds to pitch/time shift a sample, and bearing in mind that it can run NanoStudio in 1-2% CPU you can imagine how much longer it might take on an iPhone.

    You haven't said what you'd use it for, but an alternative would be a sliced based approach (ala ReCycle). This can produce better results in somes cases, is less processor intensive and allows you to rearrange the loop too.

    I'm trying to avoid a feature comparison with Beatmaker 2 if possible. I noticed that Intua recently released some info about it and I have every confidence that they'll make a great app. Although NanoStudio and Beatmaker 2 will cross over quite a bit, they will both have their own uses, strengths and weaknesses. I suspect that a lot of people into serious mobile music making will feel that they need both.

  • Can you post the manual now that NanoStudio is submitted?   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Yeah this was asked on another thread. I hear where you're coming from but because I'm lazy I'll post the same answer!

    I'm tempted to release the manual and PC/Mac version now but I think I want to remain in control of the launch at the moment, and Apple's approval process is the one element outside my control.

    But - if it does get approved before the 20th July (the earliest date it can go on sale) then I'll make them available then.

  • This app looks great so far   7 years 21 weeks ago

    Just been enjoying your tunes. High point for me was the section of Kraken around 2:00!

    I had a pretty similar experience with most the apps you mentioned - many of them really good in their own right but still a bit too specialised to take an idea further. I'd find myself making a bassline and thinking 'right that's good but now it needs some drums', or making a classic 303 line but realising you can't make a whole tune from it (well, not since the original rave scene days anyway!).

    I'm hoping NanoStudio will fill the gap to a large extent. I think it's going to be best suited to electronica genres because of the level of synth editing you can do (particularly in conjunction with sampling). These genres are always better to do on a small screen too, because they favour the sounds you're using rather than lots of fancy fingerwork.

    Let's just hope it passes by the 20th - I'm not counting my chickens yet!
