((NS2)) ✌🏼 After 7 Days.. Bugs n Features.. (edit: now After more time..)
This is my story so far with Nanostudio 2.. (after one whole week).
(Don’t have the time to go through, (not even a quarter) of the threads on this forum, so there may (or will) be duplicate requests etc).
Need to get these in now though, as some may make it into the 1st update..
I have already dedicated a thread for my Appreciation of the app:
(Bugs n Features).. In the order I came across them.
1, Groups Callapsable in sequencer view. (Already motioned by myself and others)
2, Easy(er) way (1 click) to get back to Audio/midi FX pages.
3, Hear Quantize (in real time) before having to press the “Quantize” button again.
4, Solo button in Obsidian view. For hearing/selecting a patch in isolation, without stopping the Sequencer etc.
5, Solo button in piano roll. (Mute would be nice also).
4, Piano roll keyboard playable. (Asked for by myself and others)
6, Icons or colours in the tracks (far left) for quick identification. Obsidian, Slate, Au etc.
All tracks look the same at a quick glance, have to read all the names/tittles to know which is which.
7, ^ Track text font a little bolder.
8, The metronome button/icon could control on/off, without having to open full “Play page”.
9, More colour choices..
10, Off/bypass button when AU fx is in full screen.
11, Option, when pressing stop, cursor reverts to where it was before pressing play.
12, Another eq with more bands, EQ 7B will do. (or add some to EQ 3B).
13, A way to scroll to the next/previous track, within the piano roll. (Item 22 may solve that).
14, Hold/latch for Obsidian.
15, IAPs size is larger (sometimes much larger) than what is displayed in the store.
Before and After purchase.
Dance and Dubstep 1, said:
Before = 41MB.
After = 51MB.
(A little decompression is expected I guess)
HipHop & Trap 1 went from:
26MB to 60MB, Big difference. More than double.
Haven’t bought it yet, but Acoustic 2 is displayed as 126MB, wonder what the actual size is.
16, ReSlice not playing properly when recording. And not playing properly from loop start, after the recording. Plays fine when sequencer is not running.
Anyway, when I started recording, it played different notes (for a few seconds) to what I was pressing.
On playback, it is the same, so I have to move the 1st midi note forward slightly —>
(May do a extended thread for this, if needed)
I know it AUv3 so we have to expect stuff, but it may not be ReSlice, would be nice to know, I can easily get word over to them.
17, Move plugins up a bit. There is a lot of real estate at the top of the plugin area in full screen, where the “full screen” button is. Not sure all of that is needed for a single button.
... Also a button (or a way) to hide/shrink the bottom bar in that view.
So no need to scroll plugins up n down so much, if at all.
18, Pressing the apps “home” button a second time, could bring you back to last page you were on, eg; Audio FX page.
19, Nanostudio 2 definitely uses a lot of battery power. (Noticeable)
20, Can be a little tricky to write with the built-in keyboard. Double tap space bar, doesn’t give me full stop.
Placing the cursor is difficult at times.
No lines separating keys, means I sometimes/often press the surrounding one(s).
21, Offset % seems “off”.
I just wanted to play a 4 bar sample loop, triggering each bar with a separate midi note.
Placed the same sample into 4 Slate pads.
To get it playing correctly I had to set the offset % to unusual numbers.
Pad 1 = 0%. (0% corerect)
Pad 2 = 50%. (25% is logical)
Pad 3 = 71%. (50% is logical)
Pad 4 = 87%. (75% is logical)
Maybe the offset could also have a beats option.
22, Would be nice to have ability to see reference/another track, in the background, in the piano roll.
Matt, any questions, don’t hesitate.
Now I’ve put out this thread, I may just add anything via emails.
Not all users will necessarily experience the same bugs or have the same needs, (we all work in different ways).
If anyone sees a need for a separate thread for any of the above, please feel free to start one.
There are a couple I may start/elaborate on, if needed.
