NanoStudio 1.34 should be available from iTunes within the next hour or so. It's only a small update, mainly to add support for the larger iPhone 5 screen. Apple have changed the developer tools since the last update which means I'm no longer allowed to maintain compatibility with iOS 3.x or devices using the ARMv6 processor (iPhone 3 and older). If you are still using one of these devices then iTunes should allow you to remain with NanoStudio 1.33.

Features

* Support for iPhone 5's 4" retina display
* Support for stereo sampling (when an external stereo input device is connected)
* iOS 3.x and 4.x are no longer supported. iOS devices must use iOS 5 or later (more of an anti-feature!)

Bugfixes

* iOS 6 - MIDI files will now open correctly from other apps
* Empty untitled projects are cleaned up on app start up
* Crash bug fixed with copying/pasting TRG pads with long sample names
* Minor UI tweaks
* Minor bug fixes

Hi Matt, all looks good and I can tell you that the touchscreen is much better now with regards to positional accuracy.
The extra keys on the keyboard are great too!

Cheers

Lee

Ohhh, stereo recording? I'll have to bust out my stereo mic and acoustic guitar...

[Edit] Can Eden use stereo samples now too?

You lot, honestly! :) Just stereo recording, not stereo synth samples.

I'll take it. Now I can use NS to do those folk rock wall of sound epics.

Wow, I do love those new drag handles with a passion! Maybe we should just rename them "Love Handles".

Before I get my coat, thank you, Blip!

Thanks Matt! Not anything I can really use (still on iPhone 4 :)), but I'll update anyway :)

How do you do the stereo sampling thing?

Plug in stereo mic (I use the Tascam iM2)
Record sample on TRG pad
Wave phone to the right and left of your head as you say "Sexy American Giiiiirlfriend!"*
Play sample back
Bask in awe

*while similar results may be achieved by quoting a non-80's movie, it's not recommended.

Excellent, but still no Dropbox or iTunes file sharing and no AudioBus support :(

Cheers for the MID file update Matt. The buttons though in the edit page could still be bigger. Option in the preferences at a later date perhaps?

@syrupcore... I'd be up for a 'folk rock wall of sound battle' comp. :D

As long as the 'folk rock wall of sound battle' contest entries all sound like Flying Saucer Attack or Palace and not various Death in June outtakes... (LOL)

I'm going to write a Firefox plugin just to hide atlatnessiti posts. Anyone want to fund development via Kickstarter?

tom_tm, you're on!

Oh dear. I'm an old affiliate of Flying Saucer Attack. This was the first LP I released;

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/distant-station/id80947551

Having said that, I haven't released anything for yonks (the remix I did for Charles Atlas was the last thing that got put out properly), so I've lost my way a bit, so you have a chance of winning this duel!

But hey. Fuck me! I was expecting you guys to have never heard of FSA. So this is pretty cool. :)

Always good to see an update, no matter how small.
By the way, I'm in full swing now using NS in conjunction with Auria. Workflow is a little long (having to use Nanosync to get my files into Dropbox, then use Auria's dropbox integration to pull in the WAVs) but it's fun. If NS had dropbox (and if both had Audiobus) then I'd never need to go near my Mac for music production. Awesome.

Keep up the ace work.

@andyxr: Why don't you just use AudioCopy? You should be able to hit "Copy to Pasteboard" after Mixdown in NS (IIRC), and then just Audiopaste into Auria.

@tom nice! I'd never heard of that one but I'm lost in it right now. http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=Ss9NX0w4PZ8&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DSs...

I loved (still love) all of the noisy droney stuff in the 90s. EAR, Yume Bitsu, FSA, Windy and Carl, Lovesliescrushing... I would have been all over this record at the time had I known about it!

Indeed, 'syrupcore' the phrase was born of that music. Well, that and shoegazery.

Tom, that is really interesting stuff! I'm tempted to buy it but the only place I get to listen to music nowadays is at work and I'd never get anything done listening to that :D

Thanks for the kind comments guys. :) Don't worry about buying it. It's on Spotify and YouTube. :)

I've been working on yet another LP recently- a lot of it created on Nanostudio. Less wall of sound, more electronic pop-esq. But still some drones for good measure of course! Not too sure how to release it though. Ideally I'd love it to be on vinyl, but the cost of producing vinyl is so expensive. Maybe I'll just do an artwork package and offer the tracks as a download. Dunno.

But I reckon the Folk Rock Wall of Sound thang could be pretty cool, especially as we can send each other NSP's via email (it was my original idea I put to Blip in the first place- I think?- me and lala) and remix each other's efforts? It would probably have to be after Xmas though. :)

BTW, the CD version of distant station ended up with distortion on it, because The Exchange mastering studios in London fucked up the CD mix. Drag City in Chicago released the LP on their label as a vinyl. If you can get that copy, it's got no distortion on it and is a lot better. My second LP got cut at Abbey Road in London. They were far better at not fucking things up.
