  • “Static” (ie noise) could be anything but my first port of call is to use a Stereo Gain on the inserts of each track which I can move up & down the fx chain so as to easily spot if I have any fx plugin outputting too hot in to another and that may be being masked further down the chain by a limiter - this might cause you…

  • OK - I don’t have Synthmaster2 as it is iPad only and I‘m exclusively iPhone, however I have Synthmaster1 so I‘d guess v2 has exposed its parameters to NS2 like v1 has. If you’ve not assigned auv3 synth parameters to NS2‘s macro knobs before then hopefully this will help: So, I‘ve loaded Synthmaster1 in to a NS2 track:…
  • I love Drambo, I really do. I love the fact it allows me to build soundmaking machines and custom effects. The wavetable oscillators are an IAP but are superb - with them it is possible to create your own rudimentary Serum clone (or get close-ish: enough to reproduce many a Serum patch you see on Youtube videos). Many…
  • Ah, yes - that’s a key difference. Many thanks for pointing that out 👍😊🙏
  • This isn’t something I’ve managed to get to work “in the box” (ie with nothing external to NS2 needing to run). That said I haven’t managed it “out the box” either! I am exclusively using iPhone so don’t have access to https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/midi-tools/id1446209019 which may help you out here (or might not). For me,…
  • The big bone of contention for me is that yes the app will continue to work on my current device even if Apple withdraws it from the App Store, but as my employer forces me to take a new device every 2 years will I be able to install NS2 to a new device should the unthinkable come to pass? (I’m lucky that they provide me…
  • NS2 dynamically alters its sample rate to that of the device at the moment NS2 is launched. For example on the iPhone XR if I am playing through the inbuilt speakers then NS2 opens with a sample rate of 48khz. However if I’ve hooked to my monitors via Bluetooth then NS2 will open with a sample rate of 44.1khz.
  • Yes 😊 Add an NS2 Stereo Gain fx plugin as the final fx in the Insert FX of the channel you want to make mono, then click “mono”:
  • . Yes there is 😊 Put an NS2 Stereo Gain fx plugin in the last insert fx slot of the channel you want to make mono, click “mono”:

  • +1 for automating a Stereo Gain insert to do what you want here. NS2 provides so many tools so you can workaround problems in badly designed/implemented 3rd party auV3s 👍
  • The first time I wanted to automate the effect level of Perforator was when I found out you couldn’t in NS2. However after thinking about it I put it on a dedicated Send channel, added a 2nd clean channel, grouped the outs of both and then sent the channel of my soundsource to both send channels. I set the mixer volume of…
  • What parameter do you wish to automate? The only thing I miss in NS2 is auv3 fx automation - however in all but 1 of my cases I have always found a work-around with how NS2 works to achieve what I wanted to do. Maybe we can find you a workaround using how NS2 works right now for what you want to do? Maybe we can’t, but I’m…
  • Here are 250 free transition samples from SampleRadar to get you started: https://www.musicradar.com/news/sampleradar-250-transition-tools-samples Have a look around SampleRadar. Constantly updated, literally thousands of free samples (all legit, nothing stolen - they’re the guys behind the samples given on the Computer…
  • Simple uplifter: 1* Obsidian: osc1 set to noise through Filter 1; Filter 1 set to LP. Turn all other oscillators off. Automate the filter cutoff upwards over 4 bars from 0% to 80% for an uplifter transition. Or automate the filter cutoff downwards over 4 bars from 80% to 0% for a downlifter transition. Add fx, increase the…
  • Ah - just seen all the new Russian correspondence in the forum…
  • Someone left their phone unlocked?
  • @bobheads - where the tip is useful is where you have a lot of volume automation on a track but when mixing you notice that the track at its loudest is just too loud: if you have automated the mixer volume then you would need to modify the automation to lower the highest volume nodes individually- which can be tedious to…
  • It’s an old trick I’ve ported over from Cubase on desktop 😊
  • @nino : If you don’t mind adding a step in the process and you have either of 4Pockets’ (both superb) MultiTrackRecorder (“MTR”) or Neon auv3 plugins then they both start recording in sync with the NS2 transport (if you enable the “Host sync”) option in their settings. They sit in the insert fx chain and record whatever…
  • @bobheads - Tip: Regarding individual track volume and pan automation: I never automate the mixer slider values themselves - instead I always place at the end of each track’s insert FX a StereoGain effect and I automate that - this way should I decide that a track’s overall volume needs adjusting I can still manually set…
  • At least they are happy they registered…
  • L7 is coded using Audiokit. Audiokit auv3 apps are notoriously buggy and unstable - everywhere, not just in NS2. p.s. I’m so happy I now registered 😂😂
  • I agree. I was really surprised with that NS2 “doesn’t edit midi” comment. I don’t “jam” & I rarely ever record live playing. Everything I produce is done through inputting and editing midi within NS2s interface. And man - isn’t NS2 feature rich and easy to use in this respect 👌👍😊
  • Triggering samples in Slate is exactly the same workflow as to how I triggered samples in the Akai S950 from an Atari running Cubase a long long long time before the concept of an “audio track” ever existed anywhere except on physical tape. Ah, running Cubase in sync with the multitrack tape using smpte timecode - awesome…
  • Exactly this. I do not have an iPad - I only have an iPhone because my work provides one so I am contactable 24/7. Being able to make music on it in NS2 is wonderful for me. 2 minutes waiting for a work issue to compile? Phone out, add some automation to the filter cutoff of the melody line I wrote on the train in to the…
  • @dendy - the issue occurs in standalone and in other hosts. It’s not an NS (or NS’s internal database issue). Synthmaster1 (iPhone version) was broken with their last update, but they are now concentrating on firefighting the Synthmaster2 for iPad bugs being raised. They have lost interest in SM1 (iPhone version) because…
  • As my comment above states, I use it a lot in NS2, although my usage tends to be (although not solely) for resampling usage. I have never used it for, say, recording an entire indie-guitar band.
