This app looks very promising. Midi export is very important for me in a music app so will this be possible with Nanostudio?
Cheers

I had to make some tough decisions for what to leave out for V1.0 and unfortunately MIDI export was one of them - audio cut and paste was the other big one.

I consider these features as essential so they will be the immediate priority for the first update.

Glad to hear that it's coming - I've been following this app for a while and noticed that there hadn't been any mention of it yet. MIDI Export is essential in any serious app out there; I think most "power users" like me (I've spent hundreds of dollars on music apps over the past few years) use them as sketchpads and continue the work in our real studios.

This is it for pro use:
MIDI export (along with audio export - both finished audio project as WAV and separate samples used as separate WAV's).
Creative ideas / sketchpad can then easily be polished further on a computer.

and further down the line reimport of the same objects via WIFI, but then we are playing Ping-Pong and would probably need a new application on a computer, or maybe some of the established players, Sonar, Logic, Steinberg could agree on a common format for combined export/import of midi and audio ?

Add MIDI export, and I'm in iPhone-musicians-heaven with Nanostudio. Glad to read it's on the list :-)

The first update will be all about "getting things in and out" of NanoStudio.

when i export a song file, it seems to say it's exporting a midi file - but i can't find it.

The midi file is embedded inside the exported .nsp file, which is really a zip file - if you get it to your computer and rename it to .zip you can find it there. It's a kind of 'extra bonus'.

Check out page 10 of the manual for exporting projects, or page 39 if you just wish to export a midi file on its own:

So essentially with midi export the itouch can act as a midi controller? Basically hooking it up to the computer and using the touch like a mini korg controller for example?

@TurtlePilot where did that come from? it exports a zip file with mid files in. that definitely isn't live control by my reckoning...

Yep I think there's a bit of confusion between MIDI file export (as above) and MIDI out via Line 6.

NanoStudio won't work as a MIDI controller currently since Line 6 MIDI out isn't supported.

haha im dumb as hell. that would super sick though! a basically free touch pad and midi controller as opposed to spending hundreds on touch controllers and midi controllers?

There are a few apps out there that do this as their main job. Try Googling iPhone MIDI controller or similar - a few should pop up.

@TurtlePilot - Midi out is important because it could be used to sequence/sync external gear to Nanostudio.

If you planned to use your ipod/iphone/ipad as a midi controller it would be a very expensive midi controller.

Price of iDevice + price of line6 interface + price of midi app + price of midi cable = total cost.

Check the manual - NS does do MIDI Export. You can transfer the .mid file(s) to your "real" studio using NanoSync.

From the song page you can tap Tools and then choose the MIDI file category to import or export MID files.

Alternatively, if you're in the habit of exporting nsp files, you can rename the nsp file to .zip on your computer and you'll find a MID version of your song in the zip archive.
