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.

What's New in Version 1.44
Updated to Audiobus SDK 2.1.2.
* Due to this change, NanoStudio V1.44 now requires iOS 7 or later. iOS 5/6 users may still download V1.43 from the app store.
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.
Great and simple. Very fun and easy to use.
What I like most about NanoStudio are:
Pinch-zoom of phrase/song view (horizontal+vertical) which is simply great and time-saving for phrase duplicating/arranging/symmetry and if I'm not mistaken NanoStudio is the only standalone music studio w/synth/sampler with this function. If I'm not mistaken, Auria is the only other music studio with pinch-zoom but lacks built in synth/sampler.
Assignable 16 instruments as sampler/keyboard, with no stuttering when using 16. May be nice to add more tracks to 24 so can use the mixer with less sounds per track.
Twin X/Y pad of each synth
Scrollable to FX & modulation
Sampler has easy auto beat-play recording (1/8, 1/16 etc)
File size of the app is under 100mb
Lots of other great features too.
