  1. Can someone please provide rules for this competition?

    It says “no external gear”. So can I upload my own samples which have been created using various nefarious means (:mwhaha:)?

    I hope not! Otherwise it's a “who can upload and sequence great loops Beatmaker style” as opposed to showing the app to its full potential ie programming Eden, fkn fiddly sequencing etc

    My personal suggestion would be for using only the samples that come with NanoStudio and creation of new Eden patches. This way the app gets shown in it's best light and others can learn from the cool sounds that others create

    Otherwise, someone could master and EQ all their samples/loop and just use NanoStudio as a very basic loop sequencer which the app is obviously not

    (I realize Matt (Blip) is away atm (lo que un hombre con suerte!) and I'm not trying to bust anybody's balls but some clarification would be good)
