Your Journey With Nanostudio 2 Thus Far?
Just wondering what your journey with NS2 has been like. (Apologies if there is a similar thread out there.)
My journey began in December when I first purchased NS2 and all of the IAPs in it. I was to score a film project for a friend (which didn't pan out). So, as a creature of habit, back to Gadget I went. My plan was to wait for audio tracks to be implemented before I dove back into NS2.
Skip to March when Korg Gadget 2 was released with that fugly "new and improved" GUI. Thanks to royally screwing up the colour palette and causing me eyestrain, I dove into NS2, audio tracks be damned. As I started learning more about how the app works, I started to realise what NS2 is capable of doing. My biggest worry was how to edit audio to match the beat when I exported a long audio file from Beathawk to import into NS2, but that worry was squashed once I saw that the audio editor had a "snap to beat" function.
So as a challenge to actually learn NS2 inside and out after initial exploration, I decided to remake this one Asian EDM pop song I originally created back in 2011. I outsourced the "real instrument" sounds from Beathawk since none of NS2's IAPs had world instruments. The track turned into a 30+ track behemoth production. Everytime I turned around, I discovered shortcuts and alternative ways to do things that overall sped up my workflow. I finally started to gel with NS2 and eventually deleted Gadget off of my iPad.
Since then, I've been creating Bass House for the most part (save for a track that's a combination of Ecuadorian Folk Music and EDM, a Greek EDM track I entered into the USA Songwriting Competition, and a hard rock/EDM/pop song which is another behemoth production).
How about you all? What have your journeys been like with NS2 so far?
