  1. Sounds great, but the controls haven’t really been optimized for the Mac. Everything is the same as the iOS version, which just isn’t very rewarding or intuitive without a touch screen. A lot of cool sounds though. Will still use it to make some jams.

    1. I wonder how it does with Mountain Lion with a Magic Trackpad. Well, perhaps I should just download and find out I guess.

  2. NS was always (since 2010) available for free for both Mac and PC’s – via direct download from Blip’s website…
    Not quite sure what all the fuss is about…

    1. That version was just direct port from IOS – it seems that this new version is optimized for larger screen on computers, etc.

  3. Great for people to be able to try this out. It is a fantastic app for composing electronica on the move and the sole reason I’m switching to an iPhone!

  4. What is new, is that it is new on the App Store, can’t really see the point unless there will be in-app purchases ….

  5. Just bought my first macbook, and am looking for synth/sequencer programs to play around with that won’t break the bank.

    I use Caustic for Android on my smartphone, and hope to find something similar.

    Just starting to investigate this nanostudio.

    Any tips or suggestions?
