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.

Ratings and Reviews
Killed off in iOS update
This and thousands of other 32 bit apps, have been killed off the latest iOS updates.
Shame really as this was a fantastic music creation app. I don't blame the developer as this must have been one of the more complex apps to develop out there and to have to do it all over again for 64 bit compatibility, is something not many developers can do. I blame Apple for making people lose money for the apps they have purchased over time including myself. My iPhone warned me within Settings>Info that there were 843 apps that would require an update or they will no longer work. I see, put the blame on developers. A system like that used in Windows 10 should have been employed where both 64 bit and 32 bit backwards comparability is used. There's no excuses really.
I have owned this app for a few weeks and I am blown away by what I can do on my iPhone!! I have an Akai synthstation 25 which I just bought (bargain but didn't do any research!! Plonka!!) only to discover it doesn't work with an iPhone 5s????? So I'm using a iPhone 3gs to run NanoStudio and even with the old dear IOS it is a great app worth every penny!! I just need to find a good manual to answer a few questions!! 👍🏻👍🏻
Whilst it's easy for some people to complain about some of the slightly lacklustre features of this app, overall it's an outstanding piece of software. A great DAW that I've been playing around on for years. Obviously it will never be as powerful as Ableton or other comparable digital studios but it does the job extremely well and is a great way to kill some time on long journeys.
