iTunes Description:

NanoStudio 2 is a powerful music production environment for recording, synthesis, sampling, arranging, editing and mixing. It’s the successor to the original NanoStudio, an app held in high regard by musicians for many years for its usability, quality and productivity.

NanoStudio 2 builds upon the same design principles as its predecessor and introduces a huge range of extra features. An all-new audio engine delivers truly professional sound quality, highly optimized to handle complex projects with large numbers of instruments and effects.

NanoStudio 2 also hosts external Audio Unit (AUv3) instruments and audio/MIDI effects. A library of all your AU instruments and presets is maintained so they’re tagged, searchable and just as accessible as NanoStudio’s own internal instruments.

Obsidian is NanoStudio’s built-in synth. It has 3 oscillators with 16 note polyphony and 7 different synthesis methods including analogue, wavetable, FM, multi-saw and phase distortion. It also supports samples and multisamples which may be split by note or velocity. Obsidian has 18 different filter types, including resonant analogue, super clean digital, formant, comb and waveshaping. Nearly every parameter can be modulated via the synth’s 5 envelopes, 5 LFOs and 10 configurable macro controllers, and modulation connections can be assigned with just a few taps. 300 factory patches are supplied with macros set up and ready to go. It’s easy to create your own patches and there are many more professionally produced patches available as IAP.

Slate is NanoStudio’s second built-in instrument, a sample/synthesis-based performance pad which makes it easy to tap out drum beats. Slate comes with 500 quality factory samples ranging from multisampled acoustic drums with natural variations through to cutting-edge electronic percussion and effects. 50 factory kits are include, and it’s easy to construct your own drum kits using the factory samples or your own. Slate can also be used with samples of just about anything: vocals, guitar riffs, synth pads – you name it.

There are powerful editors for song arrangement, MIDI, automation and samples. All share a consistent user interface so you’ll be up to speed with them and making music in no time.

A fully-featured sequencer supports tempo and time signature tracks (including tempo ramps) and Ableton Link.

Everything’s brought together by a mixer with unlimited tracks, track grouping and audio/MIDI sends. Tracks may have an unlimited number of insert effects with 11 built-in effects to choose from including reverb, sidechain compressor/expander, EQ with spectrum analysis, look-ahead limiter, delay, exciter, chorus, flanger and phaser. You can add AU audio/MIDI effects to the chain and use them just like an internal effect.

There are many mixdown options available with quality settings up to 32 bit/96kHz and support for file formats including wav, aiff, ogg and M4A. You can mixdown track stems in a single operation or select just a region of the song - great for resampling.

NanoStudio supports Audiobus and has many options for file sharing via the iOS Files app, Dropbox, AudioShare, iTunes File Sharing, AirDrop, email, WebDAV and importing music from your iTunes library.

Develop your initial musical ideas through to a final master with an intuitive workflow designed to get things done.

iPad Screenshots:

No IAA, No Audiobus, No Audiowaves, and many Problems with AUv3 apps.
In my opinion, the graphics and color choice is totally boring!
The developer clearly stated in his forum that no IAA & Audiobus will be built into NanoStudio 2!

Many users report that the app often crashes and causes problems. I can not understand the developers, most fantastic music apps have only IAA, and without Audiobus or AUM, you can not embed and use these apps. I can not understand this decision of the developers, and many buyers of the app also not (see NanoStudio 2 forum).

If this information had been previously known to buyers, many people would never have bought this app!

There's a quote of a post written by Blip Interactive from their forums, December 2018 :

"I'm going to add Audiobus support in a near-future update as it's been a popular request."

I read all threads just two days ago, it was the developers themselves who said there would not be an audiobus update. But if I have missed this thread, it would be great if you could post the link here. Many Thanks.

It has taken a long time for nanostudio 2 to be released.
I suggest you take the term „near future“ rather loosely.

This is wise counsel.

Many Thanks!
I remember this thread, this one comment I overlooked. It obviously comes from the thread that Audiobus will come at some point, but this could take a long time. It sounds subliminal that it is difficult to decide whether to add Audiobus as Input or Output Slot. But both would be very important! It also sounds as if only new apps with AUv3 count, and AUv3 apps that come in the future in the Appstore. But the many older music apps, as well as new apps without AUv3 are unimportant (at least that sounds like it for me). There are countless ingenious apps without AUv3 (ie with IAA). In addition, no AUv3 apps have been released to date, which have the extent of features that are equipped with many IAA Apps. That's at least my opinion, and what I've picked up in the comments between the lines. I'm definitely curious if and when Audiobus is added.
I think just like Artur Korgia.

What points for "NanoStudio 2" are better than Cubasis 2 and BeatMaker 3? What are Cubasis 2 and BeatMaker 3 doing much better?

Now over 4 months have passed, the app has not received an update. So no Audiobus!

Also, NanoStudio 2 has been removed from the app store, which prevents me from reinstalling the app.

Whether there is still an update, and is held by the promise to the users, even one? It is not an unknown system, the developers promise things, but they are not respected.

The buyers are the skinned sheep.

I think you might have hit it at an odd time. It is on the store right now, and just went on sale today.

You position is very wrong. You must not know very much about this app.
The original NS1 had many updates. NS2 will have updates as well, with the first one due very soon. Blip Interactive doesn’t rush out updates that are unreliable, and is instead working on a bigger plan for the app. Yes, patience is required. NS2 is a very reliable app and does what it does very well. This is because the dev puts a lot of hard work into the app. You should appreciate that because it means you will get a professional product - not something that needs constant bug fixes.

No comments on the first update? Audiobus functionality is working so you can use all those older apps. AUv3 apps are rock solid as are MIDI FX AUv3s.
