NanoStudio is a recording studio for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. It has virtual analogue synths, sample trigger pads, a comprehensive sequencer, a sample editor, a mixer and multiple effects all integrated into a single application.Record your ideas in real time, mix synth layers with samples, compose and arrange your tune using the powerful sequencer and bring the mix alive with effects such as reverb, compression and EQ. Share your tune on SoundCloud from wherever you are or use the comprehensive audio mixdown options and MIDI export feature to get your ideas over to your desktop DAW when you get back home.NanoStudio’s intuitive user interface frees you to get creative yet has loads of depth for when you need it.
INSTRUMENTS Up to 6 simultaneous instruments (including mixer) or upgrade with the ’16 Instrument Tracks’ in-app purchase, particularly recommended for newer devices.
‘Eden’, a powerful 16 voice subtractive synth with dual oscillators, 2 pole resonant filter, 3 envelope generators and 4 LFO’s per voice and 2 dedicated insert effects. Eden’s virtual patchbay lets you hook up almost anything for modulation mayhem.
The ‘TRG-16’, a performance pad for triggering samples. Adjust pitch, pan, volume and envelopes and assign each sample to one of the 3 output busses, each with its own effect sends and filter setup.
SAMPLING Record samples with the built-in mic (iPod Touch requires external mic), resample NanoStudio’s own output or upload your own samples using NanoSync for OS X/Windows. Edit your samples using NanoStudio’s built-in wave editing tools (with multiple undo/redo) and process them offline with custom effects chains.
SEQUENCER Record performances in real-time using the keys and trigger pads or create patterns and controller sweeps by drawing them in the piano roll editor. Arrange your patterns into a complete song using the track editor. You can edit while the song is playing and every operation has multiple undo/redo.
MASTERING Nanostudio’s mixer has 2 global effects sends, 4 insert effects per channel and you can record, edit and playback all your fader and pan changes. When you’re ready to share your mix with others you can upload it direct to SoundCloud or use NanoSync to copy the exported .wav file to your Mac/PC.
EFFECTS NanoStudio’s reverb, compressor, parametric EQ, waveshaper, delay, chorus, and bitcrusher effects are all highly optimized so you can run lots of them.
