    HIGH FIIIIIIVVVVVEEEEE!!!!!

    i have spent hours and hours trying to connect to nanosync... earlier this morning I threw in the towel, believing I had no other way to upload samples, I began trying to find a similar alternative... I totally forgot about this thread! I tried it, it works!! may be slow going as i seem to be only able to upload one sample at a time... still.. I am IN!!!! u get a gold star!

    Sure.
    In Dropbox press the 3 dots below the .wav file and select ‘Export’.
    Select ‘Open In’. This brings up a bunch of apps that can use .wav files.
    Select ‘Nanostudio’. I usually have NS open when I do this, but if not the app should open and you will get the NS text keyboard pop-up. The default seems to place samples right in to the folder labelled ‘Samples’, but if you use the ‘Browse’ button at the bottom you can select other folders. Then just press the green check mark and the file is saved.

    Which folder you select depends upon what you want to do with the sample. If it is say a drum loop or some sound that will really just work for one song, then save the sample in the Project folder of that song. That way when you save the song as a .nsp file, that sample will be saved with the project. If you put a sample in the root Sample folder then you will always know where to look for it, but that folder can get massive and bog things down. What I do for sample-based Eden presets that I want to have for regular useage (not just one song) is save the sample to a sub-folder named Presets. Then any preset you save to banks A-G will always look to the Presets folder to find the sample. Then just to be safe, when I save a song as a .nsp file I will copy those presets that the song uses to the P bank, since those presets will be saved with the project and sound correct, even if I later changed the sound of a preset on banks A-G or relocate them to a different position. This sort of work habit will save headaches when you, much later, open an old project and find that the presets are all wrong.

    Hope that helps!

    can you give me a step by step for how to get files from dropbox to NS please? I have that on my phone! YOUR A GEM!

    I’ve never jailbroken an iPhone. I haven’t checked recently, but iFunbox should work with iOS 10. And the same for Audioshare and Dropbox. Get those apps and play around with them. If iFunbox doesn’t work, there are other similar file management apps on the App Store.

    No problem! I didn’t know you were new to NS. I don’t know at what point too many samples becomes a problem and slows things down, but I think that because NS (and Nanosync) is an old app that wasn’t really designed to be a pro-level DAW (despite us trying to use it as such) it might have problems dealing with large files. Actually it’s more likely a Nanosync issue. I know that when I use Nanosync to back up to my computer I sometimes run into problems dragging whole folders stuffed full of big projects and .nsp files. So I’ll usually open the folder and transfer projects, back-ups, & mixdowns a few at a time. Then everything runs like a charm.

    The features of the soon to be released NS2 should be able to handle larger files. If you haven’t heard, Nanostudio is a 32 bit app that can’t run on iOS 11, so whatever you do, don’t upgrade to iOS 11. NS2 will run on iOS 11, because it is a 64 bit app, but NS2 will also run on iOS 9 & 10, so I think the smart bet is to avoid iOS 11 until well after NS2 is out and you have old projects either saved to computer or ‘transferred’ to NS2.

    As to your current problem, I suggest AudioShare or AUM maybe as these are more current apps and should be easier to get files in and out of. I’d try to use Dropbox (another app you should have on your iDevice). In fact you can just keep your samples on Dropbox until needed. Transfer samples out of dropbox either directly into NS for a specific project, or into Audioshare. AudioShare lets you create folders that you can use to organize your samples. Handy way of doing things I think.

    Let us know how everything works out. It’s nice to get the end of the story.

    phone has to be jailbroken? I was looking into it to help m delete files, but it looks like it won't work with iOS10?

  • Receive buffer overflow   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I am such a newbie... I will look into audioShare. I hardly know how to operate nanostudio on my phone!!! I think I have too many sample files, and they are indeed in the root menu.... trying to delete files now, but its slow going as I appear to only be able to go one by one...guess I got overzealous once I finally got it working... oops!!! thanks for your help Slam-cut!

  • Receive buffer overflow   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I don’t understand the technical issues here, but I am wondering if you couldn’t get around this problem. Load samples into another app, such as AudioShare, and then pull them out of that app as you need them. Copy the needed samples into a NS project, rather than dumping them all into a root level sample folder in NS. Worth a try. iOS music production is full of creative work-arounds.

    I never recieved that error. iFunbox is an app to mobe around files like Explorer on PC. You can use that to move .nsp files and such out of NS. Many other uses as well of course, but my experience has focused on NS related usage.

  • Receive buffer overflow   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I know this is an old thread, but I am getting the receive buffer overflow error also after FINALLY getting connected and uploading a bunch of samples... I don't know how to correct this situation, any help would be great!

  • HELP with nanosync   3 weeks 1 day ago

    also, what is iFunbox and what does it do? ;)

  • HELP with nanosync   3 weeks 1 day ago

    hey thanks for the response! after using the assistant to sort out my connection on the network, it started to work again!! Of course as soon as I was connected I started downloading samples like a mad woman... now I am getting an error message "receive buffer overflow", and idea what that is or how to fix it?

  • HELP with nanosync   3 weeks 1 day ago

    I don’t have a Mac, but on my PC whenever there are issues like what you have described, it’s always a networking thing. Make sure that the iDevice isn’t on iOS 11, and that the Mac & iDevice are on the same network, try the manual connect, etc., blah, blah, blah.
    Alternatively I have had success with the app iFunbox.

  • NanoStudio and IOS 11   3 weeks 1 day ago

    The warning doesn’t come up all the time on 32 bit apps. From recollection it’s about every dozen or so times I open it that the pop-up displays a warning. Look for it on your Air2 in the near future. I also get pop-ups on Alchemy. You’d think Apple wouldn’t display a warning that is also a notice that the dev needs to update the app, when they own the app and are the reason that the app isn’t updated. Yeah, Apple, how about following your instructions and updating Alchemy as a stand-alone app!

  • NanoStudio and IOS 11   3 weeks 1 day ago

    Not been on here for years, but recently picked up NS again and started to have some fun.
    Just bought a new iPad and without thinking updated To ios11! Whoops!! Thankfully I have my old iPad 2 with NS to play with.
    By the way, I didn’t get any warning upon opening NS about not updating to ios11.
    Anyway, looking forward to NS2 and reacquainting myself with making music

    Happy Christmas, and may Matt give us his life’s work very soon!

  • NS2 - Progress report and screenshots   3 weeks 2 days ago

    Yes. Merry Christmas everybody. I’ve boozed so much it made me forget Nanostudio 2 for a day or three!

  • NanoStudio and IOS 11   3 weeks 3 days ago

    Has anyone tried to use iFunbox to access .nsp files on a iDevice running iOS 11? It’s worth a try, but I would assume that NS doesn’t exist on any iOS 11 iDevice. I hate to reccomend this until someone can report back that this actually works. Anyone...?

  • NanoStudio and IOS 11   3 weeks 3 days ago

    Did you try using "CopyTrans Apps" or "iFunbox" (both are available for Windows and macOS) to access NS1's Documents folder? This should allow you to copy the projects to your PC or Mac, where you then should be able to continue using them using the PC/Mac version of NanoStudio.

  • NanoStudio and IOS 11   3 weeks 3 days ago

    It's a total bummer. If you have any sort of access to your project files, remember that you can still run NS1 on Mac/Windows desktop.
