  • Update for future iOS compatibility?   3 weeks 5 days ago

    No update to NS coming; instead a new app is in the works. Check the thread just below this one for details. http://forums.blipinteractive.co.uk/node/11587

    I know I will not be able to resist the mono/poly but I'm bummed that it doesn't have support for the ARP TRIG IN (even though they included the top panel graphic for 'authenticity'). It's one of the best aspects of the hardware.

    I'm also assuming it's MIDI port promiscuous like other Korg apps. Says it's AB3 compatible so maybe that's a way to tame it.

    Still, who am I kidding? Should just close this browser and get on with giving them my money.

    it's a pity but currently it looks korg doesn't have plan to add AUv3 support to their synth line .. i asked on their officia facebook page but they even do not replied...

  • Awaiting the Return of the Magic   3 weeks 6 days ago

    That's unfortunate. I hope they will upgrade that to AUv3. I can't seem to find any info on the various Korg apps as to whether or not they support AUv3. I assume that means "No AUv3 for you." Seems their strategy is to force consumers to use their synth apps in Gadget. That is annoying, but IF I can use Mono/Poly with MIDI & Audio Tracks then it will be a useful addition to NS2. My new standard for getting synth or effects apps will be whether or not I can use them in NS2. I have big hopes for NS2 overcoming the obstacles created by the features lacking in other apps.

    Bought iMono/Poly .. it sounds mindblowing, together with Wavestation and Oddysei one of best iOS synths.. Korg did outstanding job with emulating their old HW .. Some guy on ipad musicians group who owns priginal Mono/Poly wrote that it is predy damn close to real thing .. i believe him - i had Karp Oddysey HW and iOddysey unbelievable close to original ..

    but no AUv3 support, just IAA/AB :-/ Looks Korg didn't noticed AUv3 standard till yet..

  • Awaiting the Return of the Magic   4 weeks 3 hours ago

    Case in point: Korg iMono/Poly. A nice new shinny app. I would certainly buy a vintage one for $20-30, and although I'm trying to resist, I'll probably end up buying the app and be irritated at myself for doing so. No, I don't need yet another vintage synth emulation. I have plenty of synth apps. But if I could use it as a AUv3 in NS2 with MIDI and audio tracks... that would be exciting!

    Haven't been here in a million years it feels like but glad that NS2 on the horizon :) was gonna get some Korg stuff for Gadget but really would rather get Matt my cash. Keeping eyes peeled!

    Huh. Must be some sort of Existentialism.

  • NS2 - I've uploaded another little demo   4 weeks 6 days ago

    Looks like that will be in a drop down menu style, which I think might be easier for me than the separate screen on Eden. But maybe I'm just getting to be lazy...?

  • NS2 - I've uploaded another little demo   4 weeks 6 days ago

    Just because nobody seems to have noticed in that UI leak… LFO 5, ENV 5! 5 LFOs, 5 ENVs

    Good eye and top 'garden' reference!

    Also revealed in the screenshot: Individual LFOs and Envelopes can point at multiple destinations.

    12 unfinished tracks you say? My project folder in Live has 252 projects. I finish 1–2 tracks a year…

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 22 hours ago

    I like to work under pressure. I did a 'track a day' project a few years ago and that was great fun. I'm in the process of making an album called 'scraps' which is another excuse to get all those half finished ideas completed.

    I miss my room of records, it is the best insulation :)

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    "It's an album a day around here!"...

    You are a lucky sod. An album? Vinyl? In my day it was a 12 hour ambient epic, or no food.....

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    You only have 12 unfinished tracks?! HA! You Lucky Bastard! When I was a kid I had to have 12 tracks finished or I'd get no supper. "Unfinished tracks don't put food on the table"' me old dad used to say. "It's an album a day around here!" That's when being a musician meant something. I built my first house from the old vinyl albums, I did. That'll show you what hard work is all about! Hrumpf!

    I think I must be working on the same track then :-)

    I really like this way of thinking !

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    Hi, I'm a newbie to the forum (but long time user of NS).

    The new synth sounds amazing, I'm looking forward to the NS2 release. I'm thinking I might just back up all my projects to an old phone/ get them finished for when IOS11 is released just to be on the safe side. At least it gives me the emphasis to finish "untitled" 01-12!!!

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    In my experience synth comes first. If synth itself (oscillators, filters) dosn't sound good, only in rare cases FX's will save it .. on other side, if you take great sounding synth, even if you put it through avarage FX's, it's still sounds great :))

    But.. is there abybody in doubt than NS2 FX's will be great too ??

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    I learned synthesis on moog modular in college and my instructor would strongly disagree. He emphasized getting a good sound prior to using effects and held the opinion that just jumping to the effects section too soon was sloppy. However I agree that the quality of th effects are just as important as the quality of everything else, so I only half disagree with you, and my other half agrees with you.

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 1 day ago

    Yup. This all sounds pretty good to me. But a synth is a synth, and I know that it's he FX section that turns a synth into an altogether different (and better) animal. Looking forward to hearing what juicy goodness is going to be dealt to us on that level.

  • Korg Gadget   5 weeks 2 days ago

    I use it a lot! But usually to make a synth loop, then i audio-copy it and paste it in to a trg in NS :)

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 2 days ago

    Holy hell, it's better than I could have imagined! It sounds like obsidian will have the abilities of pretty much every synth I adore; FM synthesis, phase distortion, and the NanoSaw will keep my vintage whistle whet.

    I bought an iPad Pro 12.9 the other day, primarily because of NS2, and now this makes the purchase so worth it. And with the addition of audio tracks, this may require one of those audio interfaces for a mic.

    Imagine what else he's holding back for fear of not being able to deliver...

    Let the HYPE ensue.

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 2 days ago

    This is amazing.....I can't Wait

  • NS2 - another example track   5 weeks 2 days ago

    I think that strategy was wise.
    I'm blown away by the listed features of Obsidian. Holy Crap!
    I was secretly hoping for wavetable synthsis, so I'm happy to hear about that. And I had missed a comb filter on Eden. Hurray!
