Note Repeat / Arp
I have bought NS2 some month ago.
And while i still think its the best iOS DAW one thing i havent understood yet, is the lack of a simple Note Repeat / Arp functionality..
I would call NS2 a loop / midi clip based and workflow optimized DAW due to its lack auf Audiotracks (which i am not missing). In terms of the UI of the DAW and the FX NS2 its a dream. But, i see one big problem/ design flaw:
The most Producers of electronic music use some kind of Note Repeat or Arps for making a quick groove without programming. On a mac/ PC based DAW it is either a midi insert, integrated in the VST synth or comes with a controller like, push / maschine or in recent times even with cheap small 25 keys Keyboards.
The traditional musicians, need audiotracks in any case..
So its not DAW for those people but also not suited for the typical workflow of electronic music producers..
The Midi Clip Editor comes also not with much features optimized foor quick jamming, like a real step sequencer..
Maybe its either a DAW for traditional musicians, switching to clip based electronic music and are able to playing safe 16th note HATs on Drumpads or it is a DAW for programmers which like to draw every note with a pen tool.. I am writing here, beacuse every other DAW on iOS is either limited with the sampler (Cubasis) or have big UI flaws like BM3 or are perfect for jamming but the the possibilities are over soon (iMaschine). For me iOS music production in general, is still in a toy stadium but if i would have to decide for one App now i would choose NS2..
