Customer Reviews

Favorite DAW Overall

A real pleasure doin' business with this. Smooth & intuitive UI plus an easy to navigate media browser set Cubasis apart from the poor man's DAW. It goes on sale once in a blue moon for $30-35 but I'd suggest buying it right away and diving straight in. I've barely scratched the surface but I see the depth and complexity is there - no need to rewrite the description. Everything works fine, the In-App Purchases (FX) sound great and it plays well with Inter-App Audio & Audiobus. Also supports Audiocopy.

*Only thing I'd recommend is the ability to import straight from AudioShare. You guys are leaders and certainly the other guys will follow. It would save time, space, energy, money...ect. Thanks, keep up the good work.

It's a disaster!

Running anything through IAA will give unpredictable results such as instruments triggering on their own, effects stop working after switching between Cubasis and the app you're using as an effect. There's still no AU support, meanwhile other apps are using it. AU would bring more stability as opposed to IAA which makes this app a complete disaster. Don't waste your money here. You'll only get frustrated and never get anything done because you'll spend more time troubleshooting instead of making music. Multitrack Studio may be a better alternative.


Weaknesses: unfriendly piano roll midi editor (use Genome MIDI), no internal side chain compression (use AUFX: Push), sampler needs option for 1-shot/hold on sample playback (create multiple kits with open/close release). Otherwise Cubasis has become one of the best on the market and continues to improve.
