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

    As the wait for Nanostudio 2 continues, I’ve embarked on my own studio project, an office design studio for my garden! Nothing groundbreaking ( although there’s been plenty of that!) but the need to have our own space away from the kids, has become very pressing!
    After watching countless Grand Desgns and George Clarke’s amazing spaces, I picked up “Shëd” by the 2009 shed of the year winner and decided that it was now or never, so seeing as we were having a driveway put in, I got them to rip out my old shed, and lay concrete foundations for me.
    It’s now a 2 horse race, Nanostudio 2 vs ‘Moon Studio 1, and it could be quite close, as it’s going to take me 2-3 months to complete, not to mention the steep learning curve embarking on something this big will involve, but once done, I’m hoping to have a cosy, but purpose built space for all my design, photography, and music needs.
    it could well involve some modular creations of my own that pop out and fold away, so that I can maximise the space.
    I looked at buying an off the shelf office/shed, but for the size I was looking for it was £10k+ my budget is about £3k so it’s time to dust down the DIY skills and get tooled up...
    Watch this space......!

    Good point, such a pastime would require some discipline. I suppose you could varnish them, or dip them in that stuff you use to top kids biting their nails.

    I'm just wittering now.

    Definitely a space available for a small display case.

    That said, my main problem with collecting peanuts: I'd probably eat them all before I got anything resembling a collection.

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

    Brilliant. Of course I could have probably Googled that, but then I would have learnt the truth and had my dreams dashed. Only this week I was disappointed to learn that a dustpan and brush were inappropriate equipment for cleaning up tumbleweeds, this really is the last straw.

    Got any space for a small display case with one of those sliding drawers that go under bed? I mean, peanuts would take up a lot less space than taxidermy animals for example. In fact, as hobbies go, peanut collecting would be quite cheap and practical. And useful for when you need an energy boost and the convenience store is closed.

    Lol! I wish I had room for that in my home!

    I've started to realize the term "peanut gallery" may be a phrase mostly used in the United States. Rather than my own explanation, here's the Google definition:

    "noun NORTH AMERICAN informal
    the top gallery in a theater, where the cheaper seats are located.

    a group of people who criticize someone, often by focusing on insignificant details."

    As a kid I was told many times, "Hey, no commenting from the peanut gallery."

    My avatar in other forums is Statler and Waldorf from the Muppet Show, as they are the epitome of commenting from the peanut gallery.

    I took the name because early on when the forums on sights on the Internet starting popping up, the whole concept of chiming in on a public forum with your own opinions seemed really odd to me and a bit like commenting from the peanut gallery.

    Jolly good!

    So you've been a forum member for a lot of years now. Yet each time I see your username, I imagine a long shelf holding small glass fronted display cases such as you might see in a museum, with each case containing a single peanut, carefully mounted and annotated.

    Please tell me you have a room just like this in your home.

    @Blip Interactive: Perfectly timed post. I'm in the process of trying to find iOS workarounds until NS2 makes it's debut, and I'm cobbling together various AUv3 apps to make a Frankenstein version of NS (rather amazing to think about how many separate apps I need to equal basic functionality of NS, most important of which is a decent MIDI sequencer/editor, and I still have haven't found one to rival the one in NS). All that to say that I was thinking about getting Beathawk to provide TRG type functionality in an AUv3 setting, but was going to pass on it if NS2 was right around the corner. So I may end up investing in Beathawk as a temporary workaround after all.

    Still eagerly waiting for NS2!

  • Windows download virus?   4 weeks 3 days ago


    Didn’t know ‘moral high ground’ was so useful in trouble-shooting. I’ll remember to try that.

  • Windows download virus?   4 weeks 3 days ago

    It normally gives this when it can't even open the file to start saving. Reasons could be:

    - File open in something else (or something else failed to close it)
    - Some sort of read-only flag on the file
    - Some sort of restricted file permission tediousness
    - Maybe a realtime virus checker preventing access (I've never had reports of this but you could try temporarily turning it off to see if it's the cause).

    Have you tried 'Save as' with a different filename?

    On Windows, NanoStudio saves all of its user data to C:\ProgramData\NanoStudio\Documents. The app's quite old and this is probably against Microsoft's 'best practices' these days, but I've had no problems with this on Windows 10 (or older). I'm just using Defender, but the usual Windows login I use is an Administrator one - is this the same for you?

    It might be worth navigating there using Explorer to see what files are there and if you can rename/delete/undo them successfully via Explorer. Sometimes C:\ProgramData is a hidden folder. In Explorer you can do View Tab -> Options button -> View tab (in the popup which appears) and then enable 'Show hidden files, folders and drives'.

    Finally you could tell your computer it's being very naughty, which won't help but at least it'll gain you some moral high ground.

    Enjoy the graze mate!
    Delays to the release date won’t make me want NS2 any less. I do like hearing the occassional post from you though, even if there are no ETAs, screenshots, or discussion of features. Just good to know that you are still alive and still working on NS2. That gives us all hope.

    I am intruiged by the small British tumbleweeds that fit in a dust pan. The ones I get are 3 to 4 feet in diameter. Maybe Matt has a HUGE dustpan!

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

    Well, that's a horse of a different color.

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

    Hello it's me, still here!

    I find myself somewhat caught between a rock and a hard place. If I post about progress, it potentially stirs up publicity about something which still isn't ready, which doesn't really help anyone (and I include myself in that!). If I don't post, it's tumbleweeds and I probably look like a grumpy git. The tumbleweeds are easily handled with a dustpan and brush, but the truth is that I am a grumpy git at the moment because I still haven't got this damn thing finished!

    Since I missed my December deadline I've had to chill out a bit and slow down because I was working at an unsustainable pace which would have been impossible to keep up. I can seen that this will no doubt result in a better initial app - prior to December I was chucking in features at a high rate, but having a graze before the final hurdle (that's some sort of weird mixed horse-based metaphor I've just made up) has provided time to make it all feel a bit more mature and coherent.

    I'm still going to keep quiet on an ETA because all my ETAs are complete and utter crap (just check my past history if you don't believe me).

    I am wiling to say that nothing exciting's going to happen in the next couple of months.

    On the brightside, er ... I haven't shared anyone's data with Facebook or some dodgy analytics company. So basically I can console myself with the fact that in terms of tech industry woes, I'm probably having a better time of it than Zuckerberg right now :)
