MP3 has some licensing issues but Ogg might be possible.

Been having a chat to the SoundCloud guys - might be able to get 'publish to SoundCloud' in for the next update. They let you upload wavs if you want, and the free account's limited by play time rather than file size.

Thank you releasing GREAT App. My wish is EDEN supports loop-point based sustain loop.

Sounds like a good solution. A compressed format like ogg is perfect when you want to upload to soundcloud but don't have access to a 3G connection.

Here's two more points:

I'd love an EQ especially for the synths or maybe on the mixer. That would allow to create enough "room" in the mix for all tracks.

I like the sound of the synth. There are great options. But there is something that I'm not quite getting: A more direct sound of the synth (I would describe it as electric): I find that Euno lite or NNN Mono allow for this and I'm not really sure if it's the filter or the the oscs... I'm aware that those synths are not nearly as complex and therefore have a lot more processing power to spare for just creating sound. Still, I love this app and thought I'd ask! ;)

Any chance you could display the time in the same screen as the CPU and battery useage? Just to provide a quick way to see what time it is without having to close the app.

Do you think it might be best to not know that you've stayed up too long?

+1 to Shimmy, that's a great workaround!

I found myself in bed last night working on stuff while my wife slept on and I kept wondering what time it was but didn't want to leave the app, LOL! The ability to keep X bars looping over and over while you tweak everything under the sun and hear the changes in real-time is.... just brilliant! In my workstation sequencers and "real" DAWs, I find myself rarely using a loop-record mode because none of them seem friendly to auditioning your changes in real-time while the section is looping (other than the basic note events).

+1 for breaking the 4mb sample barrier and it would be nice to be able to do a bit of auto chopping and assigning of samples to the pads...lol...am i asking too much now.

Cheers

Another one from me:
I use the app on the subway a lot where it really shines... In those surroundings it would be great to be able to lock parts meaning that they can't be erased without confirmation or recorded over... I found after recording on the run that one part (for the same sound but earlier in the song) had disappeared... bummer... I had already saved numerous times before I realized that it was gone...

i think there is room on the mixing screen for Solo/mute buttons.. could'nt see a quick way to solo tracks.
+1 for scrollable keyboard option if possible (maybe with off/on switch to keep everyone happy)
Also to record volume changes/automation, with the volume sliders in the mix window would be cool.

So many people want audio copy paste. I guess I can see why, but I am in the 'I find it tiresome' camp and would love to do it all in NS, which I am doing at the mo. Thus my wishlist would be: an eq on each track, a compressor for master, distortion etc for drums. And more pads! I saw on another post u mentioned it was either that or more synth? For me enough synths, more pads please! Audio track would also be most choice.

Congrats for a killer app again, it's keeping me up way past my bedtime!

@shanecgriffo: track mute in NS is more like a toggle on > toggle off > toggle on > toggle off flow. If you swipe your finger down the left side of the Song Editor screen, or across the "Track Mute" row of the Main Menu, etc., you can quickly turn off all tracks and then tap ON the one you want to effectively solo. Vice-versa to mute a track while all are playing.

A bit less convenient than dedicated solo/mute buttons, but it gets the job done and saves precious realestate.

My Wish List:
Copy & Paste
Panning on the all the keyboards so you can record pan events like you can with the XY Pads
Scroll Keyboard (just put a little lock button so it stays put)
Snap to center on all buttons and faders via quick double tap

I know I've just wasted Sunday messing! Worth every penny!

I have two requests, a panning knob for each synth so that each track can be placed in the stereo field aned a scrollable keyboard to quickly and accurately pick a new set of notes to play.

Otherwise, it's quite brilliant!

I'm all for multisampling and with loop start and end points so that my samples don't have to loop right at the beginning.

EQ that to would be a nice feature

Dynamics (compressor, gate, limiter with sidechains)

Definitely a panning knob

How about something similar to the E button in cubase which brings up a window with all the effects sends, eq and mixer settings for the selected track.

I love this program I still can't put my ipod down, I've never had to charge it as much :)

how about an optional /alternate screen to the synth keyboards, similar to what is found on beebot/morphwiz or thumbjam
so you can just swipe across the screen and play/record the notes from a constrained choice of notes/scale/chord.
(nintendo korg ds has a similar screen function too) its a much easier way of inputting notes/jamming in a lot of cases on such a small screen.
-keep the keyboard as well, just have it as an option,... that'd be awesome ;)

Yep I think there's plenty of scope on the bottom half of the Eden pages for some alternative controllers, arpeggiators, that sort of thing. And as you say, these input methods suit the size of the screen very well.

What I can't get straight in my head at the moment is how the control system would work to select between them. It needs to be accessible yet nowhere near the playable area to avoid being hit during some crazed jamming.

I've got a similar problem with any controls to slide the keyboard by fractions of an octave. I tend to leave things like this but keep thinking about them - sometimes the solution comes after enough time, sometimes it doesn't at all.

Blip, how about using the Main Manu > Options to toggle the controller type for all Edens? It's not something you'd *need* to do frequently. Same deal for sliding the displayed keyboard range. You could also put a button on thAt page to open a new dialog to define the scale type, which is really useful for continuum controllers like ThumbJam and MorphWiz use.

Boy, I'd kill to be able to record ThumbJam-style riffs directly in NanoStudio.

So do you mean an extra button on the main menu (the overlay menu you get when you use the top left button on the status bar?). That could work. The only reservation in adding extra buttons to that menu might be the need to preserve space for a future 8 tracks, but it's a good starting point.

I was actually thinking two levels deeper, lol:

Main Menu > Manage > Settings and enable users to drag downward to view more settings if you run out of realestate.

Or it looks like there's room for one more tab: Project | Settings | Controls | NanoSync | Help
You could make an entire "Controls" tab that lets you specify the controller type, the keyboard display shift (root note at left), and specific scales for the alternative controllers. Really, something like a Blues scale with a Thumbjam-style continuum grid would enable a lot of wannabe musicians to make good music with the app and possibly encourage more non-musicians to buy.

The Main Menu itself only has space for two more buttons below Quantize and Undo. You could alternatively add a "Controllers" button there and open a new dialog from that similar to what I described above. I'd hate to see the Main Menu get longer downward, because right now you can leave it open to mute/unmute tracks while actually recording on an Eden keybed.

I guess while I'm thinking of it, if you add the ability to define custom scales, you could have that affect the standard piano keybed too, but by simply greying out the keys that aren't in the defined scale. That still gives a familiar point of reference for keyboardists to work with but prevents accidentally triggering a note that is outside the scale if you fat-finger too close to a greyed out key.

I think I'm going to reserve that extra tab space in the MANAGE screen to view the audio clipboard, or possibly the various new import/output methods, or both - haven't done the redesign properly yet.

Making the Settings tab scroll vertically is definitely a good plan if any more options get added.

I'd really like to to find a way to make keyboard scale/position settings per synth if possible. For realtime jamming, it'd be great to mix and match proper keyboards with scale keyboards as you jump between synths.

hmm, then how about another Eden page? Just add one below the Effects page or whatnot.

Awesome app. I found non-scrolling keyboard to be the only (slight) disappointment, offset by the genius upper keyboard design.

Here's a possibly mad idea, but how about if an accelerometer GESTURE could be used to scroll or "tilt" the keyboard left and right ? Obviously it would need to be set quite blunty so that its not sliding around all the time, but you could interpret a quick jerky tilt to the right as being the intention to scroll the keyboard higher up the scale couldn't you (and this could be a menu option) ??

If not - then how about an option to default patches to accelerometer-on (e.g using the left x-y pad) - as i personally found myself constantly reaching for this option to explore the (amazing) synthesis potential.

Lastly, how about if the act of tweaking a preset automagically copied the entire patch to the next empty project slot ready for saving (i.e. the topline now reads P-02 etc) ? I was a little unsure if hitting "write" would permanently destroy a beautiful preset, so this is just a confidence thing really for novices like myself who are not totally used to how synths normally interpret things.

Another Eden page is a possibility - the number of pages isn't quite creaking under the load yet. It'd be a natural place for all sorts of arpeggiation options etc.

I have thought about accelerometer gestures a few times, but it always came down to the fact that many people wouldn't use it so I always needed a surefire 'conventional' method. With limited time, the conventional method always won out.

I always wondered if I should be utilising the text area on the status bar more for touch gestures - preset up/down would be a classic. The problem I had with that was always how to visually point the user to that function (ie text needs to go there so there's no room for any sort of button graphic or obviously 'tappable' thing).

Did you manage to work out that you could write your modified preset to any destination preset after you'd done it once? The principle I took with some stuff was to say, OK, someone might be unsure the first time but as long as they understand it by the second time then it's probably OK - particularly if the alternative is more complicated.

I do really like xewton's music studio keyboard ui: pinch and squeeze to change the size and scrollable at the top bar only. (perhaps the preset bar on nano) Works really well for choosing your key starting point. Or the other option a one button lock and unlock perhaps near the transport controls. I do love the idea of another eden page for appeg and user definable scaled keyboards. Still all in all amazing app - loving dropping my samples in it and tweaking away.

Great app! I'm using Music Studio and MultiTrack DAW on my iPod, Logic on my desktop, and now NS presents it's own niche. I'd like to be able to locate the start point by dragging the bar display on top. That way the start point could be adjusted from any page as that display stays on top at all times. Also, I think it's important to be able to hear the new pitches of dragged notes in the note editor. I'm down for everything else users are asking for, pan, scrolling keyboard, etc. Thanks for a great new app.

I'm not sure you have any interest in doing this, but all the multitrack recorders lack sequencing capability, and none of the sequencers offer recording. Even one or two channels of rudimentary recording would be huge for me. I don't do purely instrumental music, so Nanopad is very cool as a melody and beat app, but being able to record a vocal with the music would be a game changer.
