    Oh yes. Many more synths as IAP. I’ll buy the lot.

    Yeah, I’m sure Blip was musing over realising a synth before Nano 2 just to get some money in the bank I suppose. Could also advertise Nanostudio really.

    @Slam-Cut Hear, hear! That´s a great idea!!

  • Is Nanostudio 2 still happening ?   8 weeks 4 days ago

    @Giotti: yes, I understood the intent behind your point. I just think it is dangerous to just assume pirating is natural and therefore we shouldn’t care, and/or not speak out against it. Everytime it comes up, I will try to make a point against pirating because it does have an effect, sometime a huge effect in how the Chinese regularly pirate things, software & entertainment, intelectual property, commercial and military secrets, etc. Someome stealing an app isn’t on the same scale as Chinese hackers stealing 614 GB of military documents relating to submarine technology, but the principle is still wrong. Those that don’t think it is wrong to steal an app are likely not to think stealing military secrets is wrong. Hopefully the app stealers won’t be around or in the way when the inevietable war is unleashed.

    People who won't pay out of principle are called thieves. They are not pirates. Do they steal iPhone too? What ever happened to hustling up a few extra hours of work and saving up for something you want?

    They're not pirates, they're leechers; and it's not stealing, copyright infringement is at most subreption, but I digress...

    Whatever you want to call them, Slam, the point is that this group of people is not worth the extra effort (be it in time or thousands of $ spent) that is necessary for the introduction of proper copy protection. This time is much better spent on adding value to the product (e.g. new features or polishing existing ones) that will result in more paying users.

    I will try this method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH9mbnjqHqg
    Also saw ALESIS iO Dock and Behringer iStudio IS202, but dont know about their ADC quality. So I plan to record through id14 connected to laptop first, then try to connect it to ipad. But if fail this way (maybe ipad 2 is too old?), I will buy tascam recorder/dictaphone like dr-05 or dr-40 and connect to harware instruments before effects for backup tracks.

  • What synth have inspired Eden?   9 weeks 1 day ago

    HA! I need to use it first! It’s been a long journey, but I am determined to get the whole lot hooked up and make something epic. Epic to me at least...

  • Bought myself a time-machine   9 weeks 1 day ago

    Yes, I have this same issue of how to get sound into my iPad. Last Nov/Dec I tried to use both iConnectMIDI 4+ & iConnect Audio 4+ with my labtop with only mixed results. I had to give up, and just went back to iPad & NS1. I am not looking forward to the headache, but sometime this summer or fall I really need to get the iConnectMIDI&Audio to work with my iPad so I an use my external gear (including some FX as well). I hope NS2 will help make all of that easier...

    I had a Matrix-6 for a few years. Miss it! Maybe we should make a trade. :)

    > But I wonder if ipad do some audio processing itself or just receiving raw data from connected audiocard, 24/96?

    Just receives data, no processing ..

  • Bought myself a time-machine   9 weeks 2 days ago

    blip 2017 : " september " .. :D

    .. ?

  • Bought myself a time-machine   9 weeks 2 days ago

    Yes, ipad2 is fine, although mini2 or 9.7 with similar to iphone 5s hardware is more smoothly running without glithes. (had some when playing ns1 on hi-quality rendering mode)

    Now I'm trying to figure out how to record my gear to ipad without a PC and with maximum sound quality. Already know that it's possible to connect usb interface to ipad through camera kit. But I wonder if ipad do some audio processing itself or just receiving raw data from connected audiocard, 24/96?

    And second question is a mixer. I want to record with and without hardware effects, separately. One device at once is fine, but divided into two tracks. Like dry synth sound and same synth with reverb. Maybe one track directly to ipad and other to some recorder/dictophone for dry backup storage and future processing.

    Ha. Sorry for off-topic.

  • Bought myself a time-machine   9 weeks 2 days ago

    Nice! iPad 2 must have been a resonably priced tablet, and it has an audio jack. That’s convenient. Anything with iOS 9 or 10 should also be able to run NS2, and I think having both apps on the same device will be ideal for transferring old NS1 projects to NS2 projects. Especially once audio tracks are available.

  • What synth have inspired Eden?   9 weeks 2 days ago

    Interesting choice syrupcore. I assume you have one? I have one that is sorely neglected. I did notice sometime ago an iPad app that was a Matrix 1000 editor. That sound module would not be easy to tweak on its own. Getting that going is on my very long list of things to do.

  • ** nanostudio songs **   9 weeks 3 days ago

    i made my new album using Nanostudio completely for the whole process. check out some of the tracks!

  • Bought myself a time-machine   9 weeks 3 days ago

    In 2013 I'd use iphone 4s. Unfortunately, three years after all its buttons were broken and there are no new spare parts.
    Then I bought 5s, but upgraded to ios11 and tired of waiting NS2, so had ordered ipad 2 with similar to 4s hardware just for NS1 :-)

    @Jabadavai: The only feedback I have is that I want more! Gret tune mate! just my cup of tea!!

    I think you'll have the best luck, generally, with Matrix 1000 (presuming you have an editor!). Not so much because of the raw OSC sounds but because a lot of Eden's magic comes from having 3 ENVs and 4 LFOs used in clever ways. I think the Oberheim is the closest match to that, feature wise with 2 LFOs, 3 ENVs and the tracking generators.

  • Synth screen shots   9 weeks 4 days ago

    I haven’t heard any discussion of this, but I don’t see how there would an advantage to this because then he would have twice the work (2 apps to maintain rather than 1), twice the potential for issues and customers suport, etc., without the realistic doubling of income. People would likely buy one app or the other, not both.

    What I am hoping for, once the initial post launch choas settles down, is that Blip creates a totally new synth app that focuses on dufferent synthesis models than Obsidian does. A synth that could work natively inside NS2, much the way things work in Gadget, or be used as a stand-alone synth app.

  • What synth have inspired Eden?   9 weeks 5 days ago

    Wavetables or waveforms?

  • Synth screen shots   9 weeks 6 days ago

    Told you so. ;-)

    In the spirit of Europa being sold as a VST apart from Reason, I wonder if Matt will put out Obsidian as an Auv3 synth on the App Store eventually. Has this been mentioned before? I remember he was talking about launching it before Nanostudio at one time.

  • What synth have inspired Eden?   9 weeks 6 days ago

    Eden uses wavetables, so if you wanted to emulate it soundwise, you'd be better off using something like Waldorf's 'Blofeld' synth, as opposed to an analogue type.

    That is great news. I’m glad to hear that new energy is being put into Sunrizer.
