@Slam-Cut, yeh it will be a lot of fun developing your project/album! I know little about Auria (although Pro-Q looks delicious) but it was interesting hearing about all the craziness in their forum regarding the 'Pro' release. Yeh I must admit it's confused me a little when random users (who I've never heard from since) have had crazy rants on here concerning NS2 in the past. I say this namely because all major developers are working towards their next gen release - and no ones got their yet; so the anticipation for NS2 is not exceptional. Further as Matt's an independent developer (as opposed to extensive teams) if he manages to release it in a similar time frame (who knows when Cubasis 2.0/Auria Pro will 'actually' be released) then he will have done well! It will be a little scary for the first one out of the gate regardless as the eyes of the IOS world will be upon them (with the rest of the developers waiting in lieu to find out what to change/add etc lol - it's intense yelp! :0

From what I was able to surmise, Auria is built by a one man team as well.
Cubasis has a team of people (unsure about the number), and I'm pretty sure that Korg has a team working on their apps. It sounded like Auria Pro didn't make the predicted spring release but it should be a summer release. If NS2 makes it by winter 2016, then I think it will have been about the same amount of time spent developing the next generation DAWs (if I remember correctly Auria Pro development staryed about 6 mo prior to the start of NS2). I think it will be nice to use both apps in my overall workflow.

Even as it is I expect that I can sweeten up my NS mixes in Auria as the final polish. Been working on composition of the album for a long time, but I don't get very much time to work on music. I hope to be done by the end of the year and then do a final mix of all the tracks. I hope the learning curve in Auria isn't that bad...

Wow Im shocked, I was always under the impression that there were at least a few of them, but it's regular tactic of solo developers to refer to 'themselves' or the 'team' as it inspires more confidence in users etc. There might just be a lead developer then some support for interface elements etc, but that was interesting to discover! Yeh an album is definitely an involved undertaking but if you don't get much spare time for music then you can just take it easy and enjoy it! :)

Yes, I think you are right. There are other people working in the company but one main guy who does the coding. That was the impression I got. And you are certainly right about enjoying the process of making music. I think that is the real value of apps like NS.

Auria is developed by one developer but Wave Machine Labs is indeed a team. The team does support and trade shows and marketing and ... It's not quite a blip interactive style one man shop.

Slam-cut, promise I wasn't fibbing: you can rearrange effects in the mixer and they will keep their settings. Just tried it again to make sure I wasn't dreaming out loud. Just do a short tap and hold and drag.

Matt will not admit this, but he's actually got a whole load of Ompah-Lumpahs stashed in his cellar, secretly working out on the development of Nanostudio 2. To get down to this secret lab, you have to ride this insane psychedelic boat that rides on a lake of sine waves.

@syrupcore: Ah HA!! Short press... I kept getting the window pop up because I was holding too long. Got it! Short press then quickly drag.
I'm sure I must have missed that in the manual. Or perhaps it is one of those secret moves from a video game. Anyway, thanks for that tip!
Cross that one off of the Wishlist.

"whole load of Ompah-Lumpahs" That's a great visual for the Blip Interactive Development Team!!

Hey Slam-Cut | Syrupcore; hope you guys had a fun 4th of July weekend! :)

"...10 bucks there's an Ompah-Lumpah preset in NS2."<\cite>

@Syrupcore - Well if there isn't, as a concellation prize I recon you should write one for Eden mk-2 to celebrate its launch! ;)

LOL funny! Ha! Ompah-Lumpah preset is hilarious.
I imagine a throbbing bass, and of Course the LFOs have to modulate to the rhythm of the song.
What a bunch of synth geeks.... :o)

@ElectricWombat: My 4th was pretty mellow, but thanks for thinking about us on our little holiday!

Nanostudio runs pretty well on Linux, under WINE. It may look clunky, but it does work. :)

If oompah lumpahs were or are involved with development, id reckon we would all have NS2 by now. ;)

Well as it stands...we know that auria has a the pro app coming "soon". Intua is "developing" a BM3 which is supposed to be "coming soon". As well as Blip's NS2, which kees to memtioned to he out by "season's end, maybe" and then im a full year older. Its an exciting time for IoS users and all the new next gen DAWs coming our way. I just hope they come out before i become an even older man than i am now :)

Has anyone seen the new update for Caustic? It's got almost everything we've all been wishing for in NS2 (Except that the workflow is still very much Caustic's, not NS). But proper automation curves (linear) with crosshairs, as well as support for multiple time sigs and mid track tempo change, pretty good! It even has a new synth that looks remarkably like Sunrizer in appearance.

Come on NS2. This is pure torture!

In fact the more i think about it, the more i want to see Inter App Audio Midi in NS. Been playing around with it in Music Studio for a little while and I like it a lot as a usuaful feature. As an Audio Unit, I can load Sunrizer through the plugin module and i can play using MS' piano roll and obtain real time midi events that plays Sunrizer's synth patch. Which is in return makes the worflow rather stupid proof as sometimes it could be a challenge to get MS' channels to set up right via midi out utilizing virtual midi. This would be a godsend with the ability to use NS superior sequencer and workflow, but able to have other snths working in unision with Eden.

I have been using the beta(s) for Caustic 3.2 since the beginning. As you said, some remarkable improvements; some things also stayed the same (sequencer).
The new Sunrizer-lookalike-synth is simple and impressive at the same time.

+1 for IAA
I'm too spoiled by NS's UI/workflow combination to try Caustic. I'm hoping Auria Pro gets out of beta soon so I can try that out as something to tide me over until NS2 is released.

Let just hope NanoStudio 2 is not like the Berlin Airport..... planned for ever, never finished! ;)

Oh, it´s the wishlist, not the wining list...o.k.: My wish for christmas is the AU/VST version of the NanoStudio 2 synth. Of course with multi touch support for windows 10! That´s it for now :-D

I'm sure you meant 'whining' list, which it is not. The "wining" list would be a list of places to go wine tasting. A 'winning' list is a list is full of people who are winners, like Charlie Sheen. For those of you who don't get that reference, you're lucky and successfully insulated yourself from American pop culture well enough to not have been virtually slapped upside the head with Charlie's rants that usually were highlighted by him exclaiming "Winning!"

Just having a little fun with that. I know english isn't your fist language, although you handle it quite well, and a whole lot better than I handle Deutsch. Actually I came through Frankfurt airport a few weeks ago and the guy at passport control saw that my passport stated I was born in Germany. He asked me "Spreken sie Deutsch?" To which I replied, "I can say Ein bier bitte."
I thought it was funny but he did not. I've never known the Polizei to have much of a sense of humor, so I shouldn't be surprised that he didn't appreciate my little quip.

Anyway...
It's been a while since we've discussed what synth(s) might be in NS2. I'm hoping that there will be room made in NS2 for Blip to create new synths & FX modules as IAPs. AU in iOS is an intruiging possibility down the road, but synths & FXs created by Blip would be much easier in terms of implementation and maintenance, making sure everything works nicely in the overall workflow.

Yes.... i forgot that "h"! Now i must think about MO-DO 1,2 Polizei, the worst german 90´ track ever ;) I know a lot people from the police and they can have humor..... sometimes.

Are you sure about that Charlie Sheen line? Maybe he was just saying "whinny!" because he couldn't do the actual sound. "Winning" in conjunction with Charlie Sheen results in a syntax error.

Maybe he was just slurring his words. I jnow that every time I heard him it sounded like "whinny!" to me. Syntax Error could be the name of a Heavy Metal/Punk/Rap band with Charlie as the lead man.

So kind of random but I was wondering if well ever see any updates or additions to nanostudio 1 at any point. I'm guessing unless ios breaks it probably not but it would be cool to see midi clock/start stop controls implementation. Just curious

The thought of a future iOS update breaking our beloved NS1 is sobering. There could be a lot of projects that suddenly can't be opened on one's iDevice. I suggest NS users adopt a habit of procrastination when it comes to updating iOS, so that if such a thing happens one can successfully get all of the projects off of the iDevice and on to a computer. Theoretically the PC/Mac versions would still be able to play the projects. At that point, if not sooner, one should consider archiving a project by saving tracks as audio stems and MIDI files. Those seem to be the only formats that are reliably update proof, especially when saved in several different hard drives. Not counting actual scores, which are good archival forms for orchestra instruments and other acoustic genres. A written score of electronic compositions could sound radically different from each performer to the next.

MIDI clock would be a great addition to NS1 as then it could be slaved to NS2.

It is scary knowing a future IOS update, due to the age of NS1 and not seeing an update over a year, could break it completely. As of now, NS is not compatible with Audiobus on IOS 9.1(could be the same as standalone 9). Luckily i don't use AB too frequently with NS and just use audio copy/pasteboard if I must for sample synths from another synth anyway. I only update simce a few other apps I like and reguraly updated to 9 and I needed to update to continue to use them (especially my banking apps, for a few accounts I need to do mobile deposits for). As it stands, most of near finished or finished projects are done. No more esits or tweaks, bounced to WAV and saved to my PC. If Apple ever breaks my ability to use NS for me being to eager to adopt a new IOS for more "useful" apps to my day to day dealings, I will sadly go to something else until NS ever comes out. I have worked with other apps before NS, and if I have to I will go back to use them again exclusively. Hope that will never happen, but it may.

For that reason, it is great to have the Windows & Mac OS X versions of Nanostudio as a backup for the time that Nanostudio 1 will no longer run on iOS.
