Another quick little demo using NanoStudio 2. As usual, all done with synthesis, no samples and only the effects which come with the app.

Unusually, the hi-hat and snare track was made just using the LFOs of a single synth - hold one note down and off it goes! The track took me about an hour to make in total so it's a bit rough around the edges. It uses 5 synth instances in total. Enjoy!

I have a hard time picturing unicorns listening to this track, but I still like it. :-D
I hope you'll include it as a demo track with NS2. I'd like to see the programming on the drum tracks and how you got the LFOs to do that. Very clever.

The patch uses a looping LFO to retrigger an envelope generator, which in turn controls one of the oscillator levels:

@matt: Maybe you should do special skin for NAno, where EVERYTHING, background, foreground, control elements - simply everything on screen - will have just white color ...

this is screenshot from this special "nano" skin of nanostudio 2

Cool track. Are those Eden 2 presets? The drums are nice but I'm really hoping to play with that fat bass pad - super warm and fuzzy. The reverb sounds sweet.

Yes they're all presets which will come with the app - current count is about 250 presets. Planning not to add any more now, just tweak the current set.

Yes! That's a nice number of presets too.

Great track. I really like the gargling bass that perks up at the end of every other measure. Gives the whole track motoring/driving feel. And provides room in the track over all for the bass to grow all massive for the second half.

In light of the LFO trick(s) especially, hope this will be one of the included demo tunes.

Yeah I should sort out the mix though. Listening to it today on speakers instead of headphones wasn't pleasant.

I've never been able to do that bit. I could only get there by constant iterations of headphones, car, downstairs stereo and little bedroom stereo and then do it all again. Still, at least the days of needing to put it on cassette (or burn a CD as the 90's wore on) to try it out in the car are long gone.

I just check if the subs are within reason and if the kick disappears on earphones and after that I hum "let it go" for the rest of the day.

At least that implies some sort of method. I'm not sure if I've even got that.
