Better sync options and the case against audio recording
Ok, full disclosure, I only bought NanoStudio 1hr ago, and I’m ready to make two requests already.
Please give us stable external MIDI CLOCK SYNC. You’ve already given us a beautiful interface to control my groovy rack synths, but then deny us hardware users with a clock out to sync the rest of our devices. Damn.
The controversial one. Please consider NOT adding recording capabilities. There are already no shortage of simple and sophisticated audio DAWS. NS2 already appears to have its foundations firmly planted in MIDI sequencing. Please don’t clutter and bloat the app with sophisticated and dsp-heavy audio processing. How about instead, expand on the MIDI aspects - eg. a groove box beat sequencer thing with a shit ton of randomise or generative options. Maybe some midi effects? Perhaps make a dedicated sampler (though I admit that I haven’t explored Obsidian properly yet). Point is, I’d prefer it if you kept Nanostudio a simple(ish) but full-feartured midi sequencer with all the trimmings, without the clutter and resource-sapping audio features. I’d prefer more MIDI, generative, shit myself.
Just my take.
Great looking app regardless btw. Congratulations to the dev. Really looks the complete business for many of us and will be for more of us with MIDI CLOCK OUT.
