Have had some time to use the BETA and think that it will be out soon as even though I have not played with a lot it does seem to be very stable.
It will contain eight tracks, step automation of all the synthesizer parameters, longer sample times from 1/2 second stereo / 1 second mono to three and six seconds, some improvements in the synthesizer engine. But the biggest visible improvement is the interface as everything is easily reached and it definitely feels much easier, if you already are using Nanoloop you will be happy and if you are beginning to use Nanoloop it is now much easier to get into.
Not only is there more parameters reachable but as before there was many functions that needed two or even triple clicks that is not needed anymore.
Personally what makes me most excited is the automation possibilities.
Always liked Nanoloop and thought that it was such a nice application but as the developer is more concentrated on the actual production and sale of physical cartridges of Nanoloop (at least that is my impression...) for Gameboy was never thinking of the possibilities that an update like this would happen. Maybe something small to keep up with newer devices but nothing more.
If you have Nanoloop you could sign up for BETA testing now.
If you do not have Nanoloop you know that you have to get it Update or not!
As said before this is excellent on a new device but it will also prolong and give use to your older devices as the developer said that the new version should still be working on
So many exciting updates of my favorite applications coming
and now Nanoloop added to that list!
