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!
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!
Amazing, but needs iPad Pro 12.9 support soon
It's amazing how far iPad apps have come since the early days, and Cubasis is one of the most impressive apps available in the store.
That said, the rather intricate user interface would really benefit from iPad Pro support. Right now many UI elements are comically and unnecessarily large.
