    ...and for 399 you can throw in a Blip Pencil that works almost as good as your finger!!

    We on the forum caused this situation by creating the monster Wish List from Hell.

    Matt, thanks for the update, mate. Just wondering if you are going to develop NS2 to it's 'end product' stage, with audio tracks during this time period, or will that be an additional delayed development beyond the initial release still as you had discussed before?

    "For a long time this project has been controlling me, now I feel I'm controlling it again."

    That's good to hear. I said it before, I say it again: Take your time. Trying to make what amounts to be an arbitrary deadline is rather pointless, and turns it into work.

    Yeah, I guess setting a deadline (or some equivalent) can get you motivated in a sense, but seems to me that type of thing can turn into a looming darkness rather quick.

    No, just jump in, let it flow. You had the desire to begin with, and I doubt that desire included the notion that this would be a burden. Let the vision you had be your joy, and any challenges that arise be your triumph!

    Psssst.....the project forced him to say that.....
    Nah´, take whatever time it needs and don´t forget to have some serious tutorials and walktroughs on start.
    Some more screenshots would help to believe in this projects.
    I guess the wishlist is closed? :)

  • WHEN??   4 weeks 10 hours ago

    Just have a regular version for a regular price and a Rose Gold version for 299 – satisfy both markets!

    @syrupcore: Do you take your tea with sugar? One lump or two...?
    I firmly believe that Merrie Melodies & Looney Tunes were the absolute pinnacle of human achievement. I’m hopeful that NS2 will probably be a close second.

    @Blip: I imagine that enthusiasm would be tough to maintain throughout such a huge undertaking. Good to hear you are controlling the project once again. We’re cheering for you!

    > ... maybe it is even NOT the year then

    Seriously, definitely this is the year and it will serious definitely be before iOS12. Seriously. Definitely.

    Last year I had a lot of stuff on the go - things kept taking longer than expected or ran into additional complications, and with only one developer at the helm (if you can call it that, maybe a drunk at the wheel might be more accurate), everything else kept getting pushed back whenever a task hit a snag. And if I'm honest, I'd include my own enthusiasm in that 'everything else' at times.

    At some point in the last couple of months I feel this project's swapped from being something that was all a bit too much to fit in one head to something where the remaining tasks can actually be crammed in without requiring overuse of blunt instruments.

    For a long time this project has been controlling me, now I feel I'm controlling it again. And man I will have my revenge on it, probably involving the aforementioned blunt instruments :)

  • Has anyone successfully recovered their NS1 work?   4 weeks 1 day ago

    Austin is a nice town, and playing synth in a hard rock band is cool, but not so nice or cool enough to abandon your original work in NS. Consider yourself chastised! :-) I’m glad you got your files! That’s a nightmare that keeps me awake at night.

  • Has anyone successfully recovered their NS1 work?   4 weeks 1 day ago

    Sorry, I moved to Austin, it's more of a live music town. :D I was playing synth in a hard rock band there for a while, but I'm back to original work.

  • Has anyone successfully recovered their NS1 work?   4 weeks 1 day ago

    Yes!! That’s it. I couldn’t find it to save my life. Glad you found it and are getting your files back. Yes, also a bad year for you to take a hiatus. iOS 11 created all sorts of havoc for users of NS1. Don’t take any more hiatuses from NS! :-)

    Found it, and I'm currently extracting 5,958 files. :D

  • Has anyone successfully recovered their NS1 work?   4 weeks 1 day ago

    Someone figured it out, and the thread should have been made into a sticky. It is possible to get the NS1 files off of a device running iOS 11, but I don’t remember how. I’ll keep searching for the thread.

  • WHEN??   4 weeks 1 day ago

    Oh! Fair play then. I never found the TRG/trigger method of audio to be much of a burden.

    Other than the fact that I never memorized any of my songs because I recorded 1 verse at a time.

    Thanks for clearing things up!

    Unfortunately I have to get up and running for a collaboration project, so I'll have to learn something else in the mean time. I'll just avoid dropping money on something new (already own BM2/Garageband)

  • WHEN??   4 weeks 1 day ago

    @MCOBigBen: FYI NS2 is slated to be released with TRG pads that have ‘unlimited’ audio, so this will function like NS1 in terms of audio (but of course without the old limitation on time) in the short term until real audio tracks are added as IAP. I feel your pain though - I’ve tried other DAW and haven’t yet succeeded in overcoming the learning curve.

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

    So still many month away.....maybe it is even NOT the year then? :O
    In the meantime we have then iOS 12 and iPad X or so to break things before they are even stable.
    Must be hard to be an iOS developer.
    I wish you would make Obsidian available as standalone app or even better AU/VST.
    However, good luck Matt! I hope at the end it all pays out for you!

  • WHEN??   4 weeks 2 days ago

    I could even live with that since i prefer midi tracks these days....as long as i can use at least 10-16 with FX etc. and without having to render or bounce it down.
    @MCOBigBen: Lol, just yesterday i listened trough some old iOS tracks and stumbled over the Ambinaut collaboration. That were nice times.
    I wish i hadn´t updated to iOS 11 if i had know that NS2 is so far away. I can´t use any other iOS DAW (maybe BM2) so i use it just as sound source for Logic from time to time now.
    Reminds me to check out if NS1 still runs on High Sierra.

  • WHEN??   4 weeks 2 days ago

    It's launching without audio?

    groan.

    All the love, Matt, all the love, NS1 changed my life.

    But I'm finally forced to do the thing I hate the most; learn a new DAW. I've been holding out for NS2, but no audio tracks is a serious nerf for me.

    The Tumbleweed/Russian Thistle was brought to the US (S Dakota) accidentally by Russian immigrants in 1873. It spread quickly, but most Western Films really shouldn’t have tumbleweeds unless they are set closer to the end of the century, like the 1890’s, but all the ‘Wild West’ excitement was mostly over by then. Nonetheless, facts notwithstanding, there is a rule that all Western films must feature tumbleweeds at some point in order to qualify as true ‘Westerns’.

    I love the idea of a peanut collection filling a gallery. I imagine them on pins like a butterfly collection, with really small placards of the scientific name. In the other wing next to it would be the walnut gallery, and beyond that the almond gallery and the hazelnut gallery.

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

    The delay won’t make me want NS2 any less either. For now, I have Gadget to muck about with until such time we have our NS2 and Obsidian. Cheers mate. :)

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

    +1 on your comment Slam-Cut - the delay won't make me want NS2 any less either :)

    No tumbleweeds here in NZ though - it rains too much...

    Tricky second app vs. shed completion - fight!
