  • @MatthewAtStagelight Thanks for the latest update...happy that it now plays in Background...I like to create little loops and turn off the iPad and just listen for things to emerge.... :)

  • Its almost frightening to think what this app is gonna evolve into.

    @MatthewAtStagelight just another quick update - I’ve worked out the last couple of days that on the new iPad Pro on headphones with the USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, the problem doesn’t exist. Presumably it’s switching the sample rate.

    Thanks for the info @gregsmith . We'll be on to this issue for 4.0.5. With that said, 4.0.4 RC has been submitted for approval and released to the beta channels. Once it is approved, we'll be on to 4.0.5 so hopefully this will get resolved very soon!

    Regarding 4.0.4. Below is the changelog. In addition to the usual round of fixes we've made some pretty big enhancements to Track Freeze, and Record to Timeline.... plus... you'll notice we slipped in an option to "Enable Background Audio" :-). With this and Audiobus, I'm now able to route some AUv3 MIDI plugins to Stagelight Instrument tracks. While it's only a first step to supporting AudioBus and IAA, it's cool for what it can do today.

    Stagelight 4.0.4 Full Release Notes

    Track Freeze Enhancements
    -Optimized Speed
    -Numerous bug fixes

    Rec to Timeline Enhancements
    -Can now use main transport to play parts on the timeline view while in LoopBuilder mode. Note: This behavior is only active when the record button is set to Record to Timeline mode.

    Other changes and fixes
    -Switch for Background Audio support
    -Multi-thread updates (for supported devices)
    -Added Track I/O Settings back on Android/Chrome devices
    -Preliminary Android notch support
    -Fixed copy/paste of MPE based MIDI patterns
    -MIDI Automation recording fixes

    Not able to reproduce this on my device. I must be missing a step (or something). What samples are you using? Are they stock or imported?

  • Silly question most probably.
    But I did a separate mix down on ipad.
    But where did it go.
    I can't find it to export, and at the end of a mix down, it doesn't ask me where to save it,
    Am I being stupid, I don't know how to get my mix out of stagelight, without recording it to aum etc
    Any help would be appreciated

    Thanks for the reply.it happens with kits I created and saved with imported samples.

    Not silly at all. It would be useful if Stagelight added the location of the files to a confirmation dialog when the rendering is complete. You can find them in:

    Files App > On My iPad > Stagelight > Stagelight User > Mixdowns

  • Thanks @wim
    Will check a bit later
    Cheers

    This is correct, all of your mix downs are saved in this location.

  • @MatthewAtStagelight any progress on the sample rate bug? I’m itching to make music again 😄

  • @gregsmith said:

    Yes. We obtained a new ipad pro that exhibits the problem and hope to have a fix in for 4.0.5.

    Also for newcomers (and those) asking for more in depth videos, we started a new weekly series called Stagelight 0 to 100.

    Episode 1 (a full oveview) dropped last week and we're releasing a new one today that covers everything in our Drum Machine.

    Check them out here and let me know what you think and what you want to see us cover.

    Thanks for the update. The videos are great too 👍

  • I got to say the updates you guys put out are excellent and Stagelight runs so much more efficiently then my day one purchase, especially the freeze function which is lightning fast now! I still think in my opinion that Stagelight is the best DAW on iOS - i Work with bitwig outside of iOS and this is the best thing you will get to something similar on iOS.

    I just saw the first two videos and frankly I can’t really ask for a clearer explanation than this. Well done and straight to the point . My only feature request is to keep them coming (the other 98) lol.
    Great job, Matt

    Thanks for the encouragement. We have many planned so far, but will be relying on you all to tell us what you want/need.

    Question to @MatthewAtStagelight:
    if I have an AudioUnit plugin - for example SynthMaster One - that is supported on both Mac OSX AND iOS as an AUv3 - and have a Stagelight project on OSX which uses that AU plugin - if I then copy my Stagelight project and all its data over to an iPad via - say iCloud - and then open the same Starlight project on my iPad in Starlight on iOS - will Stagelight the automatically know to use the AUv3 on the track that corresponds to the same plugin on OSX? ( for example SynthMaster ONE ) ?

    Interesting, I didn’t realise that AU was supported on OSX at all. I always hoped there would be a day when I could produce the same song on iPhone, iPad and OS X - maybe stagelight will make that happen.

    another question to @MatthewAtStagelight:

    Can I trigger clips ( loops ) or SCENES in the "SESSION" page - via assigning MIDI notes/CC etc to a CLIP or SCENE button ?

    Does MIDI LEARN work for this?

    Basically i'm looking for the same kind of MIDI control and LEARN functionality as.... er ... that DAW beginning with the letter .... A

  • This is the only DAW that might change my love for Cubasis.lets see what they bring to the table this 2019

    I was able to midi learn CCs to the play button on scenes and clips, but not notes. Enabling notes for this purpose would be very helpful.

  • I’m pretty sure SL supports midi learn . Also AU is originally from OSX , not IOS .
    @Paa89 , yeah right? What with the new “1 to 100” video series even my NS2 May gather some dust for a week or two.

    This should work. Let us know otherwise and we'll take a look at it.

    MIDI learn should work for CC's but not notes at this time. We'll look into adding that functionality thoug as it has been requested a lot!.

  • Is there any way to connect my wireless Bluetooth Akai LPK25 keyboard to Stagelight?

    We don't officially support Bluetooth MIDI yet, but try connecting the device in you iOS settings app, then launch Stagelight. From there go Stagelight's main menu, click settings/MIDI Inputs and see if your device is listed in the input slots drop down. Some have gotten in to work this way.

    Hey, Thanks for your response! I tried that and works thanks!

  • Hey Everyone,

    Just wanted to post an update here regarding the out of pitch issue with some AU instruments like Zeeon. After spending some time debugging it appears that some AU plugins are not reporting the correct samplerate to us. We've reached out to the developer of Zeeon to get more info/help but we also have a workaround we're developing in parallel. With that said, the fix will not be in our up coming 4.0.5 patch as it will take us a bit more time to build and test. You all can expect a 4.0.6 release shortly afterwards.

    Talk soon!

  • @MatthewAtStagelight just noticed the new beta has dropped!

    Before I download this, does it include a fix for the out of tune bug as planned?
