Music Studio 2.9 and 2.1 released, 3.0 delayed

Postby Alex » Thu Dec 21, 2017 10:02 am

Dear users of Music Studio,

Customer satisfaction and support is of great importance to us and is taken very seriously. Therefore I very much regret that I have to inform you on behalf of my team, that we cannot meet the planned release schedule of Music Studio 3. We've had high hopes being able to release the update for iOS and Android in December 2017, but due to unforeseen business related aspects, we were forced to change our plans.

In order to not leave you empty handed, please accept the following interim updates as our sincere apology for not complying with the promised release plan:

As of today, Music Studio 2.9 for iOS and Music Studio 2.1 for Android are available as free updates. Here are the new features:
  • Basic MIDI hardware input on Android
  • 5 new instruments: MC Kit, Orchestra Hit, Dulcimer, Music Box, Vintage Bass
  • File renaming
  • A trash folder to prevent overwriting projects by accident
  • Polyphony increased to 128 on Android
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements

We continue to work out a feasible release schedule for Music Studio 3 with highest priority and will keep the official update plan up to date to share the development progress with you:

We wish you and your beloved ones a Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New Year!

Known issues of Music Studio 2.9 (iOS):
  • After renaming a factory beat, the preview no longer plays when the beat is selected.
    Workaround: Rename the factory beat back to its original name.

Known issues of Music Studio 2.1 (Android):
  • Fixed in Music Studio 2.1.1: On some devices, Music Studio crashes at launch.
  • MIDI input is limited to the selected track, which receives all channels.
  • MIDI input recognizes notes, pitch bend and sustain (CC64), but ignores all other MIDI events.
  • MIDI input works with most, but not all combinations of Android devices and MIDI hardware.
  • After renaming a factory beat, the preview no longer plays when the beat is selected.
    Workaround: Rename the factory beat back to its original name.
  • Black bars are visible at the left and right screen borders on some Android devices.
  • Many Android devices have a long audio latency or touch input latency. While 20ms are acceptable for live keyboard playing, most Android devices exhibit 70-200ms latency. Some newer Android devices have lower latency, as Google is working toghether with device manufacturers to improve the latency situation. There are 2 workarounds for keyboard latency:
    * Record at a lower tempo: Open the tempo window and set it to 40-80 bpm for recording. Here latency won't be as problematic relative to the Playlist grid timing.
    * Use the piano-roll editor to input notes instead of playing on the keyboard.
    Google Android Audio Latency to learn more.
