Customer Reviews

Best iPad DAW to date

Cubasis for iPad is still by far the best portable DAW on the App Store. The user interface (UIX) is perfectly designed for our fat fingers. The Media management view keeps our projects nice and tidy. The track view is responsive to user gestures like pinching and dragging. The mixing view clearly designed and well stocked with effects like EQ, compression, and reverb. The midi instruments themselves are worth the $50 alone; you'll end up spending way more money on in-app purchases from other apps. Finally, the Inter-audio works perfectly; I can easily borrow Ampkit, Amplitube, and Positive Grid's Bias to make my dry guitar stem sound stellar. Great app!

Great app

Got this app a while ago on sale. Excellent app to have. This is way more manageable than Auria Pro although they both cater to different genres so to speak. If you're looking for something to go with Rap/trap (the southern and REAL TRAP) this will suffice. Audiobus will be needed since the kits cater to rock. This works well for composing and arranging. Light mixing can be done unless you have other apps to fill in the lack gap. Heavy mixing should be done via Auria (which I barely use smh) or desktop!

Auria Pro has murdered Cubasis Sorry Steinberg Media

Okay Love the "Loop Mash" addition now add the "Beat Designer" & "Groove Agent SE" and "Cubasis" is officially complete & Lights out for the competition...Keep up the Great Work
..From 5 stars to 2 okay new review 6months later. I have been using Auria Pro and it has blown Cubasis clean out of the water in every way , sad to say this being that I have been a steinberg user since the beginning,but Auria Pro has brought me over to Avid .pick up the ball Cubasis and hurry cause Auria Pro is making major waves out here in the mobile production world
