  • @cshyes You can draw in notes with a repeat function in the part editor but there’s no MPC-like note repeat in Slate. Your best bet is to use a couple pads for the (usually hihat) samples that you set to loop at different intervals. Just cut the …
    in Note repeat Comment by Stiksi April 1
  • Ah, I see what you mean. But I can't seem to replicate your issue. Copy and paste works as expected on a single Slate for me. I copy Kit A, open Kit B, paste Kit A and it replaces Kit B. The one thing that catches me a lot is that you have to switch…
  • Boom bap is still king for me, love this mellow cut, especially in the second half.
  • @silent1 Hmm, I'm not completely sure I understand what you're doing. Can you explain why you are doing steps 1 and 3? If you want to base a kit on an existing kit, you can just load the base kit and save it with a different name after you hav…
  • @Jeppan74 said: A small jam!!!??? Why does your small jams sound like something that´s taken me months to finish?? On that note, don't ask dendy how long it takes for him to make a dance banger. He's obscenely quick, I'm convinced he's li…
  • @jwmmakerofmusic said: @dendy @stiksi Here's a teaser of the build up. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10157118485058317&id=31765408316?sfnsn=mo&extid=ia2xUew1udovXO5R&d=n&vh=e Ok the start made me jump…
  • @Jeppan74 said: Go for it!! It´s brill and it needs to get out there!! I have a tune I´ve been working on for weeks, but I´ve only done some intro and then my creativity just dies. Hate it!! Oh man, I have dozens of those lying around!…
  • Cool, looking forward to it!
  • Ok, here's a new version that I'm fairly satisfied with. It's got room for vocals and doesn't sound like it has 45 tracks (it does). I followed a simple maxim: if there's a problem, throw Serum at it! Worked maybe 85% of the time and I learned to us…
  • One AU that’s been especially difficult is Audio Damage’s Grind. Basically all AUs that use Audiokit have been problematic. You can troubleshoot this by saving a problematic project with a new name and then deleting devices one by one and saving the…
  • Background audio would be my bet too. I don’t have any of the apps mentioned to check, though.

  • @Anttimela said: @Stiksi Hey! My approach was all wrong. I had confused myself between the manual and video tutorial. I believe I had confused part-automation with track automation. Another read thru the manual has solved my issue and it feel…
  • @Anttimela said: Hey, just want to say that NS2 is a masterpiece. It’s really revolutionized my creative process and gotten me to enjoy making my tracks again on iOS. I need some help with automating fx in Slate. I’m trying to create a b…
  • A randomizer would be cool and was discussed during beta but Obsidian’s routing options are so diverse that it would be a gargantuan task to make it produce consistently interesting results and not create feedback loops or other ear-splitting issues…
  • Hi @leeSophia welcome to the Nanostudio forum! This is a question, which might be better suited for a Garageband forum. I must confess, we generally have very little to do with Apple's own musicmaking app. However, if you want a music creating ap…
  • @anickt said: My best practices go back to the 8.3 standard so I guess they’re ingrained. 😆 I just name everything like it's MS-DOS. I mean, has the world really evolved since then? Has it really? (Spoiler)
  • Make sure to turn this on on the channel
  • @Cray23 said: @Stiksi absolutely brilliant production as always;) did enjoyed watching that water falling quiet a bit:D love your work, keep them coming. And yes! Stay safe;) 🙏 Thank you! I wish I had a better high speed video camera,…

  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: Sounds like you need a manager to impose those deadlines for you Keep at it, I suggest you set a deadline of "before springtime" so that you can really enjoy the sunshine when it arrives! To be honest, I …
  • The reasoning behind it is that if you delete a user kit that has been used in a project, it will also disappear from the project. I think there's a more elegant way to handle this and Matt is aware of the issue, but Files app is what we have at the…
  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: Sorry I hope it doesn't take you long, I'm keen to hear the final result! (Or even the intermediate, with vocals coming later). Keep us posted... Haha, my production rate is abysmal, I generally hammer ou…
  • @Trigger_the_Monkey said: I think there might be too much going on at times, so maybe simplify it? I agree with @iPadBeatMaking about the bass, I'd start by simplifying that so that it just gives a foundation to the melodies - at times it seems t…
  • I like the combination of the very analogue and the very digital, there's a cool balance there!
  • @Cray23 said: @Stiksi cannot comment on dynamics as I listening it on iPhone speaker but it’s definitely banger so stick to it;) I’ll give it listen later on on speakers but I really love it;) Thanks, much appreciated!
  • @dendy said: just sent me NS project and i will make EDM banger from it... it has huge potential to rock the floor :-) Some motives are almost AVICII-like Yes, I was trying to consciously create an ear worm, so I simplified all the melodi…

  • @iPadBeatMaking said: Also, I’d probably look into adding some saturation/slight distortion and placing low mix % reverb on everything (as in 1-5% wet mix) and slight pans (between 1-10 Left or Right) on various tracks. Those things should begin …
  • @iPadBeatMaking said: I really Really like the track. Something feels flat or 2d in the mix for me currently, except the certain sounds with the panning delay, I really like that. Maybe the kick and sub aren’t quite in sync in the mix, i’d also c…
