Audio and MIDI Files

You can view and manage all the audio and MIDI files on your device via the Files category in the Settings Page.

From there, use the File Browser to copy, move, rename, import or export files.

DOUBLE TAP on an audio file to open it in the Sample Editor.

Audio File Formats

Mono and stereo audio files at most bit depths and sample rates are supported:

MIDI File Formats

The following MIDI formats are supported:

MIDI files may have a .mid or .midi extension.

File Locations

You are free to read or copy audio and MIDI files from most locations in NanoStudio's file system, but you only have write access (ie. save, delete, move, rename and create subfolders) in these folders:

You can't directly write to or modify audio and MIDI files in these folders:

There are also two other special folders:

Library Inbox

You may see an Inbox subfolder in your audio or MIDI libraries. This is where NanoStudio places samples which have been exported to it (eg. when you select 'Open in NanoStudio' from another app).

If NanoStudio receives a zip file from another app which contains multiple audio or MIDI files, it will place them in a new subfolder within the Inbox so they don't get mixed up with other files.

When files are added to the Inbox, NanoStudio will notify you via the Status Bar. You're free to move them elsewhere using the File Browser.

Importing and Exporting Files

You can import or export audio and MIDI files via the File Browser.

There are also other methods available - see Integration and Sharing for more details.

NanoStudio will also import and export multiple files by placing them all in a single zip file.

Using Your Own Audio Files

To create an instrument patch using your own audio files:

Instruments always copy user files into the patch. This ensures the patch is unaffected by any changes you might make to your Library in future.

Factory and IAP files are not copied to patches as they never change or move. Instead, patches just save the path to where they can be found.
