NanoStudio 2 is a powerful music production environment for recording, synthesis, sampling, arranging, editing and mixing. It’s the successor to the original NanoStudio, an app held in high regard by musicians for many years for its usability, quality and productivity.
With six years development behind it, NanoStudio 2 builds upon the same design principles that made its predecessor so popular and then takes a quantum leap with a massive range of extra features and a new audio engine delivering truly professional sound quality. Everything is optimized for CPU efficiency, so complex projects with many instruments and effects are handled with ease.
This is a complete in-the-box solution to production, enabling you to develop your initial musical ideas right through to a final master with an intuitive workflow carefully designed to get things done.
NanoStudio 2 is a fully featured host for external Audio Unit (AUv3) instruments and audio/MIDI effects. A library of all your AU instruments and presets is maintained so they’re in one place – tagged, searchable and just as accessible as NanoStudio’s own internal instruments.
This leads to Obsidian, NanoStudio’s synth, which is definitely no afterthought. Obsidian is a 3 oscillator 16 note polyphonic instrument with 7 different synthesis methods available for each oscillator, including analogue, wavetable, FM, multi-saw and phase distortion. You’re not limited to synthesis as there’s also support for samples and multisamples, split by note or velocity. Obsidian has 18 different filter types, including resonant analogue, super clean digital, formant, comb and waveshaping. Nearly every parameter can be modulated via the synth’s 5 envelopes, 5 LFOs and 10 configurable macro controllers, and modulation connections can be assigned with just a few taps. 300 factory patches are supplied with macros set up and ready to go. It’s easy to create your own patches and there are many more professionally produced patches available as IAPs.
NanoStudio’s second internal instrument is Slate, a sample/synthesis-based performance pad which makes it easy to tap out drum beats. Slate comes with 500 quality factory samples ranging from multisampled acoustic drums with natural variation through to cutting-edge electronic percussion and effects. Its samples are arranged in 50 factory drum kits to get you started, and it’s easy to construct your own drum kits using the factory samples or your own. Slate can also be used with samples of just about anything: vocals, guitar riffs, synth pads – you name it.
For composing and arranging there are powerful fully featured editors for songs, MIDI parts, automation and samples. All editors share a clean and consistent user interface which means you’ll be up to speed with them in no time.
The sequencer supports tempo and time signature tracks (including tempo ramps) and Ableton Link.
Everything’s brought together by a mixer with unlimited tracks, arbitrary track grouping and audio/MIDI sends. Tracks can have an unlimited number of insert effects and there are 11 effects to choose from, including reverb, sidechain compressor/expander, EQ with spectrum analysis, look-ahead limiter, delay, exciter, chorus, flanger and phaser. You can add AU audio/MIDI effects to the chain and use them just like an internal effect.
There are many mixdown options available with quality settings up to 32 bit/96kHz and support for file formats including wav, aiff, ogg and M4A. You can mixdown track stems in a single operation or select just a region of the song - great for resampling.
Sharing options include the iOS Files app, Dropbox, AudioShare, iTunes File Sharing, AirDrop, email, and importing from your iTunes music library. It’s a breeze to share multiple files in a single operation as NanoStudio automatically handles zip files for you.
There’s also a built-in WebDAV server for full control and backup of your files using any desktop computer or WebDAV client.

great potential in this programm

Version 2.0.0
thanks for creating this awesome software!
Looking forward to the features that are planned!
The workflow is no less than amazing compared to other DAWs on iOS.


Version 2.0.0
Ich habe sehr lange auf diese DAW gewartet, ohne es zu wissen. Das Konzept ist nicht revolutionär, aber die Umsetzung spektakulär gelungen. Der Obsidian Synth als Herzstück ist überragend in jeder Hinsicht, besonders das UI. Die ganze DAW ist um diesen herum designed, und bietet den besten Workflow von allen für elektronische Musik. Korg Gadget hat seine Existenzberechtigung verloren, BM3 ist viel zu umständlich. Was dieser Entwickler hier geleistet hat, ist um Klassen besser als die Konkurrenz.

Beste iOS DAW

Version 2.0.0
Von allen DAWs die ich besitze (und ich habe fast alle) ist NanoStudio 2 die beste. Sicherlich gibt es Teilaspekte die andere besser machen aber vom Gesamtpaket unschlagbar.


Version 2.0.0
Ich freue mich über die neue Version und obwohl ich lange nicht mehr mit NanoStudio arbeiten konnte, fühle ich mich fast wieder wie zu Hause! Toll ist auch, dass ich Sunrizer einbinden kann!! AAABER wenn schon eine neue Version, dann doch bitte mit Audiobus Support! Das fehlt absolut!!! Dann gibt‘s gerne auch fünf Sterne!

TOP Bedienung, Stabil & Synth

Version 2.0.0
Das ist mein 4.er DAW
Habe Cubasis 2, Korg Gadget, GarageBand & NanoStudio2
+Sehr gutes GUI... Während die anderen DAWs vom Desktop kommen, wurde dieser DAW für Touchbedienung entwickelt
+ Sehr effizient, wenn man ein paar Tricks lernt (s. Tutorial)
+ Stabil
+ Performant
+ Sehr guter Synthesizier
+ Arbeitet gut mit Audiounits zusammen (AU3)
Alles im allem ein moderner DAW
Negativ ist mir ehrlich gesagt nichts aufgefallen.
Nur ein Hinweis: Aktuell unterstützt der DAW noch keine Audiospuren. Das soll Sampels abspielen kann er natürlich.
Aber in 2019 soll die Funktion noch eingebaut werden (kostenloses Update). Da ich diese Funktion nicht nutze, ist mir das egal :-)

Music Creation Bliss

Version 2.0.0
This was so worth the years-long wait!
Looking forward to seeing the remaining features implemented in time and a complete portable production environment before the jump to 128bit architecture ;)

My new DAW Nr. 1

Version 2.0.0
I was ok-ish with Cubasis, but it was just missing something. I tried NanoStudio and instantly fell in love. It’s so easy, efficient, smooth and stable (no crash so far!!! WOW).
The Synth alone is worth the money. Obsidian is a total beast. Well done!
Just one minor disturbance: the FX section is a bit hidden (if you switch from cubasis) and the layout isn’t perfect for the format of most of the AudioUnits.
I haven’t used Cubasis or BM3 since I got NanoStudio.

The perfect production environment: reliable, intuitive and great sounding.

Version 2.0.0
Maybe the biggest differentiator to other ios DAW is the stability and absence of cpu hungry behaviour. As well, the workflow is very intuitiv and arranging is easy and accurate. Many smart commands, e.g. when double tapping „properties“ when a part is highlighted mutes this exact part. Great to quickly make the A/B check without rearranging the track. The internal synth Obsidian is very versatile, if one loves to take a deep dive. If you are rather a preset junkie, you have a comprehensive choice of factory sounds and really great and affordable iap banks. If you want to use your AUv3 synths, they are integrated in the category searchable sound file system. Amazing! But not only AU instruments, also fx apps are supported. The use of Turnado works like a charm and still the DAW use of cpu stays negligible. Another highlight to me is the sampler Slate. Many many functionalities, sample editing, swaping, adding fx — everything is quickly accessible and well designed. And at the end of the day you have multiple export functions to get out an end result or MIDI or audio for further treatments. To me the perfect production environment: reliable, intuitive and great sounding.

Eine perfekte DAW

Version 2.0.0
Ich habe Nanostudio 1 geliebt und habe damit für diverse Games den Sound produziert. Nanostudio 2 ist die perfekte Weiterentwicklung und was Matt hier programmiert hat ist wirklich TOP. Vielen Dank. Bin sehr auf die Audio IAP Möglichkeit gespannt. Kaufen Leute 🤟🏻

Intuitive and straightforward

Version 2.0.0
One of the best and most intuitive UIs and workflows in iOS DAW world. Many practical features implemented in very thought out way. Some minor things would be still nice to have but more stuff is in dev’s pipeline (audio tracks).
Obsidian synth is very powerful workhorse synth, synth freaks and sound designers wet dream. Comes with huge tagged preset collection.
Slate seems to be feature rich sampler with some traditional sampling DNA and advanced bus and groups system.
Useful range of audio FX and flexible bus routing make mixing pleasant experience.

It’s finally here and I love it

Version 2.0.0
I have been an enthusiastic user of NS1 for years. My first impression of NS2 is that Matt (the one-man production company behind blipinteractive) has thankfully kept the strenghts in usability and MIDI editing. The new synth sounds just great. In my opinion it‘s the best iOS DAW out there. Can‘t wait for the promised audio recording tracks IAP.

This is simply the best for creating music!!!

Version 2.0.0
nanostudio 2 provides an unparalleled environment to create any music you like!
This App does not know crashes, hangs or CPU problems - it is totally optimized, evolved and rock stable!
This is the ultimate solution for creating music!
I already deleted lots of other Apps as they simply are not in the same league, redundant to this or just obsolete at the event of nanostudio 2!
You will never ever regret this buy!

Awesome DAW
