Ratings and Reviews
The Most Stable Music App in the AppStore
I purchased Cubasis and Auria at the same time. Before Auria was known as Auria pro. I was making music on the iPad since the first beat maker app in 2007. I have to say that Cubasis is the most stable app there is of all the music apps in the App Store that I have and I have hundreds of dollars worth. I love the power combined with the simplicity that this app offers along with its flexibility to use IAA and AUs. But, all that means nothing without reliability. Which is what this app has when I save a project it is saved. When I put it in a zip file off load it to Dropbox or store it in an external drive erase it then reload it another day it is there!!!! So many other apps I have lost projects not Cubasis now even if I create in another app I export the stems to Cubasis for mixing and saving I don’t trust any other app for saving my projects.
If Cubasis had a sampler section like Beatmaker 3, if they get more Waves plug ins and get rid of their channel strip plug in and eq plug in taking up 2 slots, better levels meter, and the ability to do punch in recordings that record over audio the moment you hit record (the last one is not a biggie if you re-record until you get it right but if you love doing punch ins it’s a biggie). You will no longer need anything else but Cubasis hands down I promise you that!!!!!
Neon Taylor Approves
I’ve been using Cubasis/Cubase to too long now to not have left a review until now, it wasn’t until more than a handful of ppl started to ask me to start doing tutorials for cubasis that I really started to think how powerful it really is for an iOS device, I have been making music strictly on the iPad since 2011 so I’ve seen how the iOS music scene has developed over the years rather then just stumbling upon it now so I guess the wow, shock and awe has faded a lil and with these music apps doing updates here and there sometimes it would be more feasible to work with one specific daw because it has feature another doesn’t at the moment but cubase/cubasis has never let me down, the workflow is so smooth and proficient that it leaves more room for creativity and time and the sounds that come with it are some of the most lushes sounds that I’ve heard from any music app I’m a Beatmaker3/Reasons kind of guy but cubase/cubasis will always have a special place with me
Hi Neon, Many thanks for your great review and rating! Please make sure to share the links to your tutorials in our forum, to let other users see them (www.steinberg.net/cubasisforum). Thanks again! Lars
Learn or burn
As soon as i entered my audio or used the drum samples from Cubasis own media port the pitch was different by at least a whole note also sounds compressed and weak. I went into settings and made some adjustments to the quality, sample rate.... and its better now. Before There was ducking happening. That too was the low settings either i made or it was already set up that way. Sound would fade in and out against any sound that that competes. Lots of potential here now that i figured it out but i spent a lot of time on it with embarrassing results. If you are like me and never used Cubase you might be in for a challenging learning curve. The help manual will not recognize my simple questions for example; i type in freeze. It responds; do you mean unfreeze? I still dont understand freeze. I’ll get to it eventually but i have made recordings and got some compliments on soundcloud so i guess so far i dont need to be frozen. 5 stars when you put in a tuner and let us see (like in Fruity Loops) the (Letter) Note we are playing.
Thanks for your positive review and rating, hi fi Cary! Please make sure to have a look at the wide range of Cubasis tutorials (https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=183&t=82110) and pay us a visit at the forum (www.steinberg.net/cubasisforum). Best Lars
