I simply could not write the music I do without Cubasis. Doug at Soundtest Room is THE expert. He uses Cubasis with Audiobus and whatever synth, dm, seq, etc. Anyone who rates this less than 5*needs help. By far the best DAW on iOS. And I wanted that prize to go to Auria but Auria is just too good for iOS to handle at the moment. Sure some experts with the newest and emptiest iPads will tell you they had 8 synths running simultaneously inside Auria. Try doing that on my iPad and it would have iPad kittens.

No Tempo Track - Very Frustrated

This App is fantastic and I use it constantly.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars was that there is no tempo track, so you can't have more than one tempo in any song.

I know people have been banging on about this since Cubasis was launched, but it is a major component of songwriting and musicality to be able to adjust the tempo of a song part way through and make the tracks seem less robotic, especially with classical style work.
I think this should have been added prior to the albeit, excellent mixer automation function upgrade, especially in the full price version.

Please, please, please, Steinberg will you add this as priority. Add it as a in app purchase, if you must. This would surely make this app perfect and definitely make the full version worth the money and truly warrant 5 stars.

I'll continue to keep my fingers crossed!


Absolutely brilliant. I use it constantly and it has totally upped the production quality of my music. I feel it can do anything I need it to but I do get the occasional inter app glitches where it won't link or it's silent. Don't know if it's an app fault or my own but it doesn't stop me using it. Best thing ever
