Would love to see a horizontal mode for the knobs in addition to the vertical and circular methods. Given the default landscape mode of the app, some controls are hard to use vertically over a full range with one swipe as they are too close to the top of the app. Makes some automation recording difficult.

A wish from my side: When creating a new project please do not default to Global A A01 sound... I was trying something with another sound and now I have to go and find it again...

This app sounds great though!!! Thank you for creating this!

- An option to always default to "Zoom All" when entering pattern editors.

Haha, you guys couldn't wait atleast a week? A wishlist on the release date? No worries though. I agree with eusti, an Initialized Patch when loading a sample into Eden would be nice.

960x640 resolution for iPhone 4 and the ability to instance instruments would be awesome. Heck, I'd even stack 2 TRGs in some cases to load more sounds from my Konkrete samples >.>

Awesome App! Thanks, been looking for something like this for a long time!

Can we have a compressor please? Maybe something we could put on the drum bus?

Thanks and congratulations on a killer app.

Okay. My first wish on the list is that you make millions with this app. It would be well deserved.

Now for my greedy little bastard wishlist (again just a future wishlist I am thrilled with this app as is)
• audio copy/paste
• arpeggiator
• scrollable keyboard (or someway to shift the keyboard other than octave C shifts)
• Mixer automation. With L/R panning. Would love to automate volume and L/R panning of eden synths (is there a way to pan synths now - can't find it?)
• custom scale maps - with the small keyboard it would be great to lock in a scale (similar to thumbjam)
• audio tracks
• a sampler - even something along the lines of thumbjam or iSequence on the iPad. As far as increasing the revenue stream might be worth looking at adding some features as paid upgrades. Like downloadable instruments (sampler). I think people would be glad to put down some more cash to help fund the progression of this software. I know I would.
• universal app

Again. Thank you for the amazing work on this app. It's quite amazing to have this kind of power in a pocketable device. Impressive!

These requests line up pretty similarly with some I have in mind.

Audio copy/paste will be in update 1 (can't give you a time yet, need this to settle down before making any promises)

Arpeggiator, custom scale maps - yes would be good on the iPhone keyboard.

Universal app - will start looking into the iPad and iPhone 4 after update 1 is out the way

Audio tracks - probably the largest amount of work (after the iPad), would definitely like to investigate

Scrollable keyboard - any ideas on how to make this work with the current UI would be appreciated.

Sampler - I gather you've got something in mind here - what would differentiate from the current TRG/Eden sampling capabilities? One thing I'd thought of was a multisample player which would be much better for instruments such as piano and strings.

Eden pan - I can answer that one now (from another thread!):

"There was a dedicated control, but I took it out to make the mixer cleaner (I found I didn't really use it).

You can hook up an XY controller or the control knob to Osc/Pan via the patchbay and do it that way. Then you can record it in the sequencer too."

Hi BlipInterative! Amazing app, really love it (5 stars from me on this one!). Yes! If possible, a multisampler unit (or 2) with dedicated tracks in the sequencer would be great. I.E a multi sampled cello c2, g2, c3 etc loaded into a sampler unit and being able to map those 3 samples over a keyboard interface?

Great to hear that audio copy/paste is in the pipeline. Superb app anyway and so much depth to experiment with. As a songwriter I too want to be able to sing along to the grooves I've created, but audio copy will be fine for this if I absolutely have to do the warbling into the iphone by letting me paste mixes into MultiTrack. Which pasteboard version are you looking at?

No rush - enjoy the kudos for such a fine piece of work for the moment!

I think all the serious apps seem to do both Intua and Sonoma formats so I gather I'll do the same.

No Hurry here. Take your time with the update. With the polish and the well thought out UI, it seems you've delivered a version 3 app the first go round.

great news on audio copy/paste.

For me the scrollable keyboard would be nice to just line up the keys in a convenient position for whatever phrase I'm ready to lay down. One option might be a simple scroll lock/unlock next to the eden navigation arrows. Another option would be an invisible left and right swipe spot in the top transport bar (lockable in settings?) I don't know. I can understand your desire to keep the UI as clean as possible. The dual layer keyboard does help for phrases in different keys already.

Yes, the sampler I was thinking of would be a multisample player, however it's already so much fun wreaking havoc on samples within eden.

Thanks for the pan info. I knew it had to be there somewhere. Thanks again for a wonderful app and congratulations on it's undoubtable success.

I'd just like to vote against a scrollable keyboard, for what it's worth. It's a nightmare in the other apps that feature it ; totally mucks up the sort of clean usability that Nanostudio's interface offers. The two-octave display mode is more than adequate for laying down any lines.

That was my opinion too but I tend to cheat and transpose so I can work in C most of the time. I know some people work differently.

If I did do it, I'd keep the octave scrolling exactly as it is and find a way such that it doesn't affect the current behaviour if you didn't want to use it.

Actual Wishlist:

1. Scales for the keyboard - major, minor, pentatonic, blues, arabic, etc.
2. Some sort of patch initialize function instead of starting with a complicated preset each time
3. Automatically save copies/versions of tweaked patches with global project save instead of having to individually save each patch.
4. Easy drag-and-drop sample exchange over USB (I understand that there's something goofy on Apple's end about the individual folders)
5. Easy full-project exchange/backup/export (for swapping between multiple devices)
6. MIDI export (know that this is already coming, but I'm excited about it)

Increase the 4MB sample limit. I had some 5MB sounds that I really wanted in there, but got knocked for the limit.

You guys are crazy to waste your wishes on silly little updates...

...my wish is for 30 hour days so I have more time to make music (on my phone!!!) with this app.

I mean, c'mon guys...if NanoStudio can put this much creative power in the palm of our hand you KNOW Blip's got the skinny on bending the space/time continuum. Quit holding out on us and give us the extra time in the day this amazing creation requires!

Seriously though, congrats on all the great reviews and success guys! Your product deserves it as it is obviously the result of people who understand not only the platforms capabilities and limitations but the people creating the music with it as well. I'm a huge fan of your product as well as your company and will be spreading the word to everyone I can!

Alright, only thing I have on my wishlist is more effects, if this would be possible? Like, instead of just two set effects for each synth, have it instead as a sort of virtual rack, where you can insert up to two effects (Maybe do this for master effects too, but I'm more thinking it'd be nice for the synths). I'd love to see some bitcrusher, compressor (side chaining would be great, but I don't know how much cpu that could take), 3 band EQ. I'm sure there's other great effects that could be added, but those are the ones I can think of.

I didn't quite read through the wishlist, so sorry if something similar was already suggested.

AudioCopy/Paste yes ASAP (but take a break post-release, though!, you've earned it IMO)

Multi-samples... yes that would indeed be useful for phrases that range across many octaves, but honestly I'd rather have a few audio tracks first, especially one that could be "frozen" as a "reference track" and excluded from mix-down to wave. I know you're familiar with what I'm asking for here because we've discussed it on other threads before, but for the other onlookers, the basic need is to AudioPaste or Import some mixdown from another iDevice app into NanoStudio so you can listen to it as a reference track while building parts up in NanoStudio, then either AudioCopy or Export the mixdown from NanoStudio to some other iDevice app.

What I'm really shooting for is the ability to create parts in all the various "good" iDevice apps, letting each do what they do best, then AudioCopy or export their wave mixdowns into something like Multitrack DAW for a final mixdown. Of course to do this, you need either a live transport like ReWire for the iDevice platform, or else you need to be able to listen to wave mixes from other apps in *your* app to ensure that the new stuff you're building in your app is being created with the right feel and timing.

Slidable keyboard... BIG YES. It doesn't have to be a fugly UI change, and it would be very helpful for folks like me who play riffs nearly an octave up or down from my "rooted" chord position. Any chord that is thumb-rooted on C or D I can't riff into 4th or 5th or 7th below and then resolve back. And I can't play *any* chord and associated riffs that are thumb-rooted on A or B (and barely G) unless I do the "narrow" key widths, which feels a bit "smallish" to me even on the iPad. I'd like to adjust the thumb note exactly where i want it to give me room to riff both down and up.

You guys should consider using File Sharing in iTunes to import/export samples/mixdowns/midi.

I've got a couple of apps that use it now and it's nifty (essentially a USB transfer through iTunes. Requires iOS4 and iTunes 9.2 - open your device in iTunes, click the Apps tab, then scroll to the bottom. You can upload/download multiple files at once!)

Hit post too soon...

PS> I don't want a scrollable keyboard, but an option to set the key it's based on would be excellent. And I'd love multi-samples (even just a couple) but I can live without them.

Looking forward to midi support!

  • The ability to merge two projects.
  • Copy and pasting of midi content from one project into another.

    Already, I've been working on projects and realized that they are complimentary parts to the same song! It would be great to be able to quickly merge and/or paste together content from multiple projects.

    drelbs - I was a bit annoyed when after having spent 2 months on the whole NanoSync thing, Apple announces virtually the week after that they've made USB transfers available with File Sharing :(

    I haven't investigated it much, but I think the main problem with File Sharing is that it only works in the root directory. I can probably get round this by getting NanoSync to zip up the files with the directory structure it wants, send it over USB and then have NanoStudio unzip it all to the right place at the other end.

    Does it really only work with iOS 4? That would make it unsuitable for many users.

    I hate to ask after you worked so hard on Version 1.0 but has a more advanced effects and mixing section crossed your mind? I understand I/0 and interfacing with other apps is first priority which is great for people like me who want to also use other apps in our productions. However, I'd be willing to put money into a mastering "mini-suite". The exceptional DSP abilities you have shown with the original release of NanoStudio makes me want to see what a EQ, Comp, and Limiter would sound like coming from you. On the other hand, other apps can do this, I just think it would be a nice increase to the workflow if you could bus an instance of Eden to an EQ, mix it with a TRG bus, and then compress it. Perhaps just food for thought. Take some time off though. Rake in a little well deserved green before you start on an update. Im excited to see where this app goes in the coming months.

    Yep "more effects" was probably around update 2 or 3 on my list. Trouble is at the moment that I can see iPad getting in between update 1 and update 2.

    I tried hacking together a quick look-ahead limiter in a day, the idea being that at least for V1.0 it could be a handy little 'set and forget' unit on the main mix. Trouble is that I wasn't happy with it and had to make some ruthless choices about what to cut to get it out.

    I agree EG, compression and limiter would be great, together with a bitcrush preset in the Eden waveshaper at least. I hear the odd conflicting requirement though - some say they'd be happy with it over the main mix, others would like it on a per track basis.

    The main mix would make for a simpler UI and less CPU usage. Per track is definitely more flexible, and since it's quite easy on the synth to get some nasty clipping caused by a resonant filter, compression would be great there.

    First, thank you for creating this amazing app! NanoStudio has everything I have been looking for in a iDevice DAW! You have my gratitude and support!

    Here are some things I'd like to see implemented in the future updates if feasible:

    -For NanoSync, ability to upload and download entire directories, instead of only individual files
    -Perhaps two extra Mixer pages/views with 8 faders each (1-8 and 9-16) corresponding to 16 TRG pads. Three dedicated bus faders is great, but having immediate access to volume/pan controls of all 16 samples would be amazing!
    -More TRG Song tracks, please :)
    -As someone mentioned previously, some type of arpeggiator (and gate!) function for Eden
    -Ability to side-chain would be fantastic as well, when and if compression is implemented

    That's it for the moment :)

    Thank you again for all your hard work!

    Regards,

    Russ

    looking forward to copy/paste.. not sure all this will mean, as i haven't done too much production on my iphone yet, but will it enable to copy audio recordings from the likes of 'thumb jam' etc ?
