  • @Stiksi Thanks so much for your responses. In case anyone finds this topic interesting (and also for my own brain), here is a summary of what I ended up doing: Bass track was a group of two bass synth sounds, already with an automated effect c…
  • @Stiksi said: You can use send tracks to split the signal so you don’t need to duplicate the source. Just turn down the level fader on the source and set the sends to pre fader. This is actually something I started to try out yesterday, s…
  • I have to agree with @LeeB here. Give it a bit of time and play around a lot, read around on this amazing forum for tips and tricks, and make a bunch of new things just as ‘learning projects’. I was also a long time user and massive fan of NS1 and…

  • @Stiksi genius, thank you!!! Of course it was that. I've recently purchased Fabfilter Pro-L loudness meter and limiter and have been playing with it on the Master channel of everything I previously created. For some reason I also put it on this proj…
  • screenshot video is on Google Drive here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1K3OB5JNuqRR8RSwUj5mf29YATxJhqrLU/view?usp=sharing
  • Thanks for the confirmation and the clever workaround 👍
  • thanks @TakkAtakk - I must have found the wrong link, I see it now in the App Store. I do use Cubasis a little bit, but the Midi piano roll editing is a real pain compared with NS2, and the general workflow in NS2 is just more slick and fun and…
  • Thanks again for all the ideas! One question, is 4Pockets Multitrack the only way to do this? I don’t actually have that app, it’s 9.99 and I already have Cubasis, Auria Pro and Beatmakr 3 apart from NS2..... I don’t really need to buy another DAW.…
  • This is a totally amazing tip! What an amazing community. Thanks from me too. I might never use this tip, but the concept is inspired and I will put it on the back shelf in my brain By ‘guide track’ are you talking about a reference for mixing,…
  • aha this might explain an issue I've been having ( see thread :https://www.blipinteractive.co.uk/community/index.php?p=/discussion/1718/midi-import-weird) Thanks for the update - any idea when CC (especially CC64 sustain pedal info) might be send…
  • @dendy @stiksi I did not know that! That explains a lot for one of my projects, which uses instances of Model D - thanks for the workaround ideas !
  • me again I've come to the conclusion that there is something weird between NeoSoulKeys AUV and Nanostudio2 regarding the capture of sustain pedal MIDI. On Cubasis, the pedal data is recorded under CC64, and on playback it controls the sustain …
  • Second update (sorry for all the messages!) : I rebooted iPad, updated Cubasis and tried exporting the midi file again. It came out better so I imported it to NS2 and it is very close! All note starts and ends now good. My last and driving-me-mad p…
  • Second update: I’ve managed to record (from Cubasis live playing) the midi data at the right speed into a NS2 track. But, it seems the end of all the notes isn’t getting recorded, and possibly also missing the sustain pedal midi data. That is a huge…
  • update: it seems to be a Cubasis problem, I opened the MIDI file on my mac and it was weird there too So I still have this MIDI file I want to get out of Cubasis into Nanostudio - does anyone have a workaround? Maybe I can live-record the midi dat…
  • Thanks both, for your encouraging comments and advice. It's good to hear that the Industrial drums are massive - I guess that's why they sound so good on their own! In a mix though, it makes sense that they could be shaped a bit - I will try that…
  • Thanks for the info already, I have a question which follows this thread : I just bought a Focusrite 4i4 audio USB interface and it has the option of selecting sample rate, with the proposal in the manual that 48kHz is 'recommended'. Since I have a…
  • Thanks all, for your comments. Inspiring stuff as always
  • @Trigger_the_Monkey Thanks for your suggestions and encouragements
  • @boomer said: Thanks all. Great forum. Learning a lot here. me too! PS I sent you a message about drumming, through the PM for this forum.
  • @internalogic Enjoy the learning! I'm finding that my ears are getting more tuned to things that are swamping each other and how to fix it. It's brilliant, it's like cleaning your windows and being able to see so much more of your garden's colou…
  • Thanks @dendy - I must be learning something! (from you!) I assume that you use automation then, to remove/deactivate the HP filter during the sections with no bass?
  • @boomer no apologies required! I am happy to receive all proposals Despite acknowledging to myself that I do have a lot of experience (AKA I am old 😂) and often have a lot of confidence in my own ideas, I know that those same qualities can someti…
  • Great tips here - I will be trying out these things - thanks everyone!
  • That was lovely, nice work! You might want to add some EQ tricks to separate out the high airy synths from the bass? I am a total newbie to this mixing lark, and there are many others on this forum with much more knowledge than me, but I’m learni…
  • wow @dendy thank you SO MUCH for being so generous to take the typing time to share this information. It is exactly the kind of detail I am interested in. Having ideas like this to experiment with, and adapt to my own work is a real gift for my own …
  • @boomer I think you are underestimating your abilities by saying you're not a drummer. It's clear from your compositions that you have a high sense of musicality and stylistic ability, and I reckon if you go and listen to some of those records with …
  • Thanks @boomer ! I take on board your proposals for sure. As a performer I've spent a long time in jazz communities where solos can go on and on a bit, and everyone except the performer gets a bit bored :-) and so I think sometimes I go totally the…
  • (I found that image on the internet, mine went to the digital graveyard many years ago...)
  • Thanks everyone for your great suggestions! I'm glad to hear it is a real thing and I'm not going crazy ;-) I also grew up on MIDI sequencer + real synth, without anything more than a 32-character LED screen and a scroll-wheel to find all your MI…
