NanoStudio is a recording studio for iOS, OS X and Windows. It has virtual analogue synths, sample trigger pads, a comprehensive sequencer, a sample editor, a mixer and multiple effects all integrated into a single application.
Record your ideas in real time, mix synth layers with samples, compose and arrange your tune using the powerful sequencer and bring the mix alive with effects such as reverb, compression and EQ. Share your tune on SoundCloud from wherever you are or use the comprehensive audio mixdown options and MIDI export feature to get your ideas over to your desktop DAW when you get back home.
NanoStudio's intuitive user interface frees you to get creative yet has loads of depth for when you need it. To try it out head on over to our website where you can download the OS X and Windows versions for free!
Up to 6 simultaneous instruments (including mixer) or upgrade with the '16 Instrument Tracks' in-app purchase, particularly recommended for newer devices.
'Eden', a powerful 16 voice subtractive synth with dual oscillators, 2 pole resonant filter, 3 envelope generators and 4 LFO's per voice and 2 dedicated insert effects. Eden's virtual patchbay lets you hook up almost anything for modulation mayhem.
The 'TRG-16', a performance pad for triggering samples. Adjust pitch, pan, volume and envelopes and assign each sample to one of the 3 output busses, each with its own effect sends and filter setup.
Record samples with the built-in mic (iPod Touch requires external mic), resample NanoStudio's own output or upload your own samples using NanoSync for OS X/Windows. Edit your samples using NanoStudio's built-in wave editing tools (with multiple undo/redo) and process them offline with custom effects chains.
Record performances in real-time using the keys and trigger pads or create patterns and controller sweeps by drawing them in the piano roll editor. Arrange your patterns into a complete song using the track editor. You can edit while the song is playing and every operation has multiple undo/redo.
Nanostudio's mixer has 2 global effects sends, 4 insert effects per channel and you can record, edit and playback all your fader and pan changes. When you're ready to share your mix with others you can upload it direct to SoundCloud or use NanoSync to copy the exported .wav file to your Mac/PC.
NanoStudio's reverb, compressor, parametric EQ, waveshaper, delay, chorus, and bitcrusher effects are all highly optimized so you can run lots of them.

Still the best all around music app...
The simple yet powerful interface is what sets this app apart from so many others. I own just about every music making app you can get for iPad. Aside from GarageBand, this is the most intuitive. I have made a number of songs on various apps but I keep coming back to NanoStudio because it provides the most direct way to get a song out of your head and into an iPad. The only ding I would give it is the quantize latency on the drum pad, which can be difficult/unforgiving (Tabletop, by comparison, works flawlessly). If you set quantize for a more coarse setting, you'll do just fine. The synth has a rich sound that keeps you coming back. At first glance this app may seem limited, but once you start appreciating the simplicity and power of the interface, coupled with one of the best sounding synths available for iPad, you will keep coming back to NanoStudio. This app will let you do live looping performances (not with a sampler, but your own imported sounds and synth presets). You can also download the app onto your computer and really let your creativity flow. Well worth the money. If you have doubts, check out videos and music people have made.
This has to be the best app for maintaining your creative flow!! Simple, easy to learn, intuitive interface and you could load all the samples you like. By far my favorite mobile DAW. And for all the negative remarks, all good producers know you use more then one piece of software to make the final product. It's like saying your song isn't good because you only used the piano. Whereas a grand symphony is all different types of instruments played together to get a superior sound. Same goes with music making software. With that say I wouldn't be without nano studio when Im in my creative moods. Thanks you wish to see more updates in the future!
waste of money.
Offers nothing much that you can't get from many cheaper or even free apps. Latency is horrible, synths are highly lame, recording anything live is almost impossible due to general lagginess. MIDI editing seems limited at best. I have an IPad Air 2 with the latest iOS 8 version ... it's like the positive reviewers are using a different app. It performs like bad PC freeware. There's nothing impressive or polished here that I can see, despite the premium price-tag. This is the last time I spend more than $5 on a (non-refundable) app. Five minutes with this thing and I desperately wanted my $ back. Bad purchase. Consider very carefully and investigate less expensive options before you dive in on this thing. It's pretty blah.
