NanoStudio 2 - Progress Report
Wednesday, September 13, 2017 by person milko
As an NS1 owner I have a concern about this. Back in the day, there wasn't nearly as much competition but this is now launching into a really busy space! Will anyone really care anymore, when there's so many others out there already? Perhaps the name still means enough that it'll get a good start and if the quality is there too then that should get it rolling again. I just hate to think of a labour of love (for years!) getting released to little fanfare and disappearing into the depths of the app store.

Ach what do I know (nothing), he may already have a clever marketing campaign lined up and a host of popular sites and youtubers making enthusiastic demo videos already.
Congrats on what sounds like really good results. I've had a year of not being able to do as much music stuff as I'd like, but your site has been my first call whenever I dip into it, throughout.

Moog Model 15 has also hit a 50% discount now. First reduction since launch I think.

Price bouncing - I think it would still be nice to know that it's on sale and that they ARE price bouncers, because I'd be pissed off for buying it at full price when it's almost the exception for that to be the case. At the same time it doesn't need to be flagged as a news story just for itself because yeah, it'd be once a week or so.

I still don't have mine - being an international order means somewhere near the back of the line, even for Early Birds like me which I will admit is disappointing. As of Monday this week they reckon they're on track for this much:

Our production partner is still on track to produce all Standard and Gig Editions for Kickstarter backers in September, and we’ll be shipping them to you as soon as they’re ready.

So, that sounds like they're almost there at last. No idea why there hasn't been press yet, perhaps they want to be sure of clearing the Kickstarter obligations so that they can be producing for general sale before the reviews hit? There's a few little instagram video clips and YouTubes starting to appear,

I will admit to being a backer and thus tending towards to hopeful optimism. I didn't ever expect it to be on time to be honest, but so long as it's good when it arrives I don't mind the wait. Just waiting for my one to be in a shipment damnit so now I am indeed getting that kid-waiting-for-xmas impatient feeling.

in fairness, the product is actually shipping to backers in batches now. It's the general non-backing public waiting til August for it to be on sale.

FWIW (as I, too, have nothing to advertise) I really like the way your site remains independent and uncensored. I do the app-buying via affiliate links when I can, but I imagine that's gonna be pretty small change. I'd certainly consider chipping in on a Patreon to keep things going.

iPad Air 3: 2GB of RAM, Underclocked CPU

confused Sebastian needs to read better.

The new smaller Pro does not have USB3, the larger one does. It's another example of how the smaller one is gimped, seemingly arbitrarily.

Does the smaller size - and so, resolution - make much difference to the RAM required by apps? I kinda suspect not for music apps but it would be comforting if it did! Presumably Apple not giving this 4GB will limit developers' ambition a bit too, since they can't expect more than 2GB for the majority of users.
