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.

One Of The Best
After buying this on my 1st gen iPad a few years back, I have always kept this app no matter what. Now on a 4th gen iPad, it still is the goto app for sequencing beats and rocking out with Audio Bus and Auria. It has always been stable compared to other apps like BM2 and FL Studio.
I think it's time to redesign/update the UI. The access to the sound library is archaic. I also think your synth section could use an update with more sound modeling options. Drum pads need V sensitivity and a full screen mode. Give us MIDI output too please. Audio tracks would be sweet too, but I have a feeling this isn't gonna happen. Over all great job on an awesome music production tool. Hoping there will be more to come.
Also anyone having issues with music not sounding like you recorded it, turn off quantization function.
This is still my favorite music creation app. I love it. Only writing this because of the people giving it the bad reviews. Yes, it's the quantization function affecting the playback. Turn it off! Seriously, spend a little bit more time exploring the features before you blast it on here. They probably spent more time writing those reviews than trying to figure out the problem. And for my review, please add at least one audio track! It's a bummer having to export the audio to another app to record, then wanting to change something as simple as a sour note, knowing you have to switch back and create another master track for export. Throws off the creative process a bit. Other than that, it's awesome.
NO TRIPLETS 1/8t, 1/16t, 1/32 none
DONT BUY THIS APP IT SUCKSWow just wow...... 15 dollars for a supposed music DAW, with no triplet note repeats at all? I can't believe this piece of junk. It's really not a hard concept to understand. EVERY single other one out there has them. I had the iMaschine and it only has 1 for its note repeat, a 1/16t, and so I thought I would buy this, because FL Studio has always seemed like an inferior product. I have no idea why I thought that, because now FL Mobile Studio is the next thing I'm buying. I even upgraded to the 16 instrument tracks for like 5 more dollars, hoping it would give me some dang triplets!!!!!!! Don't waste your money like me. I will delete this review and write a glowing positive one if you can update this thing with some frivkin triplets. Until then, this app I just wasted 20 dollars on will not be on my phone
