Hi Matt,
I am a 7 years old user of Nanostudio (but i am 46) and wonder if NS2 will only fit on ipad for the first release as you told us before ?

Just in case this app will ever be released I might buy a new Ipad actually. I never used the ipad for anything and don't like the concept but the idea of having a complete daw with me is awesome. Nanostudio 1 features everything I need already so I can do the mixdown in Live or Logic but if there was more features like audio, sidechaining etc it would be absolutely awesome.

Hi, I want to introduce myself: I’m Ivan and I’m new here. I’m amazed about NS2 and I want to know if there’s going to have some resources to save CPU (freeze mode, bounce in place a channel...etc.) Are midi effects (scales, arpeggiator) or midi au’s in NS2? Sorry if these questions have been a answered before.
Thanks.

Hi!

So far my experience is that the need for a freeze mode isn't urgent. I can get 16 or more synths up and running with 10's of audio FX on an iPad Air 2 with a buffer size of around 5ms. If you go up to around 10ms it can do even more.

However, when I implement the audio tracks IAP that will be a good time to add a freeze mode (since it essentially involves rendering the synths and FX on that track and then playing it as an audio track).

I've provided for internal and external (AU) MIDI FX but haven't written any internal ones yet! I was hoping to add a couple of simple internal ones as proof of concept (eg. transpose or event filter) and leave it open for external AUv3 MIDI effects.

Seems all great to me. Thank you very much for answer my questions.

From my perspective, Nanostudio 1 was incredibly efficient on the ancient iOS hardware when it came out. Extremely impressive what was capable. I can only put that down to Matt/Blip’s awesome coding skills - as at the time other apps couldn’t do anywhere near as much as Nano Studio could.

It’s also great to hear development of a serious app like this being tested on an iPad Air2, (which is still a great iPad, and the oldest to handle current features like split screen multitasking) and the developer trying to keep the app working on old software versions too.

This leads me to expect that, as before, I’ll probably be blown away with what’s capable CPU speed wise on current hardware - I’ve read the initial release likely won’t have the UI for the iPhone, but in some benchmarks current iPhones are faster than a Quad Core i7.

Nanostudio was very inspiring to much around with and fashion up a tune. Can’t wait.

NS1 was a super bargain and I know I got far more out of that app than the small amount Inpaid for it. Don’t dispair. NS2 is coming! ...or was that Winter that was coming...?

@nano

If you look very precisely at this screenshot, you get answer to your question :-) There is (obviously) LFO in stage of selecting WHAT should be modulated (mesage "select a mod destination" at bottom). And you have that (+) icon on almost all knobs. You see there is active just OSC2 and you can map LFO to any of OSC2 controlls. From this screenshot is obvious that LFO/ENV are free to assign to any parameter which is possible to modulate..

There are hidden answers to LOT of curious questions in all published screenshots, there is hidden more info that it may look at first sigh.. one just need precisely look and screenshots :-)

I remember to read here that you even can use an own envelope per operator for the FM.
What i would like to have would be MSEG´s since normal envelopes can´t do a lot things for certain tasks.
Oh, what i forgot to ask if there will be a capture recording feature. One of my most used things now.
Means when you just jam around and think you have a good one....just push a button and everything is saved as midi without you having to record actually. Because 90% of what i do are happy accidents i lost otherwise :)
