  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   1 week 5 days ago

    It was better a fix to make Nanostudio work with iOS 11 ...
    At least in the wait, we kept on playing!

    slam-cut @ .. but I just don’t like more monthly bills (which is the normal cloud storage format)

    " time capsule storage "
    us-account.teambition.com (international server)
    unlimited / max file size 200mb / free

    " storage / collaborate / share / music player / swiss knife "
    pcloud.com (one-lifetime-payment) 99 years / 2T ;)

    Syrupcore makes a good point about files ‘littered’ everywhere. A reliable and consistently used system for backing up is a good work habit to have. I’ve evolved a file steucture that works for me (so I don’t accidentally overwrite something), but everyone needs to find a method that they easily understand that avoids future confusion, and is easy to follow through with. If more people did that rather than trusting that Apple would take care of their files, then we wouldn’t have as many people coming to the forum in frustration after the iOS 11 update. :-/

    RAID 0 configurations were initially used a lot by semi-pro to pro videographers. They needed to get around limitations of hard drive speeds and get reliable video wothout any data loss. You’re talkng about RAID 1, which is reduntant drives copying the exact same file in two places. That is more secure than just 1 hard drive obviously. Sure, you don’t have to be a pro to use either of those, but to me either of those seems more of a pro-level than the average person who just has the one hard drive on a laptop. I like to manually back up to 3 other hard drives because I want to be sure it is actually done. I want to see it with my own eyes. I worked at a company that had a Raid system fail and both hard drives were suddenly dead. We didn’t know until it was too late because the back up was automatic. I manually backed up the files for my department, so I didn’t suffer the huge headache & costs the acounting department faced. So maybe I am actually more paranoid than you! :)

    I agree with your concerns about having files on someone else’s server. If that company suddenly folds, is purchased by another company, or is hacked... could be scary. Sorry to hear about the 10 years of files you lost. Devastating. I understand your paranoia, but I just don’t like more monthly bills (which is the normal cloud storage format). A one time fee sounds like less headache, if it really works out.

    I do both. Cloud for recent, hard drives for older stuff, large stuff like multi-track recording projects and the occasional hard backup for more recent things. I have two copies of the important stuff (photos!), one at home, one at work.

    I'm not nearly as diligent about the whole thing as I used to be. I have 'cloud' files littered everywhere. Need to get back on it!

    i lost data (all) because of fucked cops .. ;)

    RAID is not for proffestionals.. RAID simply means you have 2 harddrives, you save file just once and it is saved automaticaly to both harddrives .. so even if one dies,you have still your backup on second drive .. after i lost 10 years of photos , music projects, work project (including all wedding photos - that hurted almost more than those lost music projects :)) just because of single !BACKUP! harddrive died, i started to be paranoid and now i very strictly use for backup 2 haddrives in RAID connection - and even in this setup i still think "should i buy better NAS with 4 haddrives ? :-))

    that's why i'm now seriously considering this pcloud.com offer .. just still fighting little bit with fact that my files will be stored on some servers at other part of globe :)))

  • Finally!   1 week 5 days ago

    OK. Asked and answered. Some people do have reason to use the cloud rather than hardware.

    I don’t need RAID (I’m not a professional) or the cloud to save .nsp, .wav, & .jpg files along with the occassional Word file. I probably have a smaller amount of files than you gents, so easier for me to manage with hardware. If renting space on a cloud service makes one feel more secure, that is reason enough, and saving time is hard to argue with.

    I agree with having 3 copies of files, which I keep on hard drives. For me it is easy enough to move the files from my PC to other hardware, but then again, I’m just an amateur musician. If I were a pro graphic artist/videographer/film maker or something like that, then it might be very different. I thought we were all on the same hobbyist musician level on this forum.

    > Why rent storage when thumb drives, SD cards, disk drives, etc are so cheap?

    it’s not that cheap.. for serious backup ypu need two or better 3 copies.. until you have not a lot free time to manually copy all stuff which you want back up 3x, you need some NAS with at last 2 drives in RAID connection..

    no chance to buy serious NAS and two 2TB harddrives under 250€ .. most probably it will be somewhere around 500€

    Future is in cloud.. actually it’s cheapest way how to have rock solid and safe backup of data... I know what i’m talking about, i lost my data already twice last 10 years because of harddrive failure ..

    But as we know now you can´t trust anything with a CPU not older than 20 years :)
    Where is my Commodore C64?

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   1 week 6 days ago

    @Kenb6870: Matt said that NS2 should work on iOS 9 & 10, so don’t update to iOS 11 until the Inquisition comes round and forces you to.

  • Update for future iOS compatibility?   1 week 6 days ago

    I’ve never tried jailbreaking - that might work. A lot of people have had this problem and come here to ask questions. I don’t recall anyone coming back to say if they found a way to get .nsp files off an iDevice that has been upgraded to iOS 11. Have you tried using apps like iFunbox? I doubt it will work, because I think that NS no longer lives on your iPad because it is 32 bit. It is possible that the .nsp files are still on the iPad somewhere. Not sure if iOS 11 wipes the hard drive clean, but I doubt it. If you find a way to get your files off the iPad, please let us know how you did it so we can pass the info on to other people who end up in the same situation.

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   1 week 6 days ago

    Yeah, I’m also interested in an update mate. Even if there’s no new NS2 news, hopefully you can tell us if you’re alive, how your holidays and new years went, how you’re surviving tax season, etc. Lol.

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   1 week 6 days ago

    Any news on when NS2 will be released? Because it is now into the first week of 2018. I am glad I have waited and not updated to ios 11, because I still love the functionality that NS1 offers, and besides that, NS2 is not out, so i wouldn't be able to use it.

  • Update for future iOS compatibility?   1 week 6 days ago

    Ok thats great. Now if I can only get them out of my iPad lol. I cant even open it to use nanosync. Maybe I have to find a way to root my iPad though jailbreaking.. is there an eden synth for that? Hurr hurr hurr lol

  • Finally!   1 week 6 days ago

    I don’t trust any cloud storage for anything but temporary useage.
    I like hardware, which is the least expensive route over time, and I really dislike monthy bills of any type. I keep those to the absolute minimum.
    Why rent storage when thumb drives, SD cards, disk drives, etc are so cheap?
    And does no one use CDs/DVDs anymore?

  • Finally!   1 week 6 days ago

    Not trust these life time updates......Cakewalk anyone.....

  • Finally!   2 weeks 1 hour ago

    at www.pcloud.com you can have lifetime 2TB space for one time 250€ payment .. thats pretty good offer, for this price you get just 1TB and just for 2 years on dropbox...

  • Finally!   2 weeks 7 hours ago

    Yes sir. Needed room for a big file though? I’d upgrade to $9.99/month storage if I was you. ;) 1tb of cloud storage!

  • Update for future iOS compatibility?   2 weeks 12 hours ago

    The .nsp files should work fine on Mac or PC.

  • Update for future iOS compatibility?   2 weeks 21 hours ago

    and I'm partially bafled at never EVER getting this pop up. I'm still looking for way to retrieve all my music back... this sucks..

    I still have the app on my iPad thankfully but I can't downgrade (I tried many times). all my other apps work fine on iOS 11. hopefully there is a jailbreak coming soon so I can somehow retrieve the files.

    Actually, if I successfully get these files back, will I be able to open them in nanostudio MAC? or is that gonna be an issue too?

  • Finally!   2 weeks 1 day ago

    Now this is good news, congrats on the release!

  • Finally!   2 weeks 2 days ago

    It's an LP, not an EP. I started writing it on an iPhone, then when I realised that this NS thing was pretty wild, I upgraded to a first generation iPad. Then I hit the software/hardware limitations of that and purchased an iPad 4, and carried on. Finalisation was all in Logic- so I did cheat in the end. But almost all sound creation was 100% Nanostudio.

    The dropbox link may be dead now, as I needed to move files in order to make room for a huge file. Is that what you're referring to?

  • Finally!   2 weeks 2 days ago

    No worries mate. ;) We’re just taking the piss on ya is all, jokin around and all that.

    Anyways, my first album (when I made utter crap that is) was made in a week or two in MTV Music Generator (the PC version). As I grew older and grew in my craft, I became more and more a perfectionist. Weened myself on FL Studio because the old lego blocks system they had was similar to MTV Music Generator. As FL Studio became more sophisticated, so did I.

    Anyways, I know that pain of taking forever to finish something all too well. Been about 3-4 years since I ever cobbled together an EP or album, just making single tracks here and there.

    Anyways, I finally have some time to listen to your EP. Should prove to be interesting. ;)

    Edit: Can you reup it for me please?
