Customer Reviews

Amazing functionality on iOS,

I was looking for am iPad app (DAW) to create simple backing tracks and play along live with my Yamaha P255 stage piano and this fits the bill nicely. Runs very well on my iPad mini 2 and the tracks created play back thru the P255,s built in speakers making for a nice live performance experience. I have more sophisticated desktop DAW programs but was looking for the portability convenience here and I found Cubasis extremely accommodating". I highly recommend it

Amazing Update

Thank you Steinberg! The keyboard sampler is beautiful and quick to set up. That addition alone changes everything in regard to sound quality vs CPU/RAM restrictions, especially for users with outdated iPads.

For sample-heavy musicians this means basically a new app, offering new workflow strategies and a huge amount of features with improved stability. Worth the premium price. Bravo Cubasis!

Complete waste of time and money

This app is nothing but a consistent string of bugs, backed by condescending customer support. The MIDI sequencing and editing are way off and work at random. It barely records MIDI from an external source as it works half the time at most. To top it off, their customer support will treat you as though you know nothing about recording or DAWS, and give no viable options for trouble shooting and say if you don't like it to get a refund. Just a train wreck of an app. Don't be fooled by their videos that make it look so great. It is all PR and advertising for the fact this app is trash.
