Cubasis giveaway – three copies of Steinberg’s leading iOS DAW up for grabs

Download from iTunes App Storecubasis logo 3As I posted yesterday, Steinberg’s Cubasis has received an incremental update taking the app to v.1.8.1 and adding some useful new features and improvements. While there are a number of really good audio and MIDI sequencer apps available for iOS, for my money at least, Cubasis is probably the best all around package. And as a Cubase user on the desktop, it is a bit of a no-brainer for me to also use Cubasis on my iPad.

The Cubasis feature set has developed nicely since it was first released. The app now supports both audio and MIDI recording, includes a good palette of both sample-based and synth-based virtual instrument sounds, has a range of audio effects, a solid audio and MIDI arranging system and, as of v.1.8, includes a comprehensive automation system. And this is all topped off by a user interface that is slick and well designed for use with the iPad’s touchscreen.

Cubasis provides a well-featured audio and MIDI recording, arranging and mixing environment all brilliantly implemented on the iPad's touchscreen.

To celebrate the latest update, Stefan Trowbridge and Lars Slowak at Steinberg have been generous enough to provide me with three copies of Cubasis to giveaway to readers here at the Music App Blog.

As usual with the giveaways I run on the blog, the deal is simple; get your name in the hat and see if it gets pulled out.

You can enter the draw in one of two ways.

  • First, if you just want to enter this draw, then use the Contact Us page to leave your details before 10 pm (GMT) on Wednesday, July 9th, 2014. Make sure to enter ‘Cubasis’ in the message subject line.
  • Alternatively, if you want to get included in this – and every future promo code giveaway run on the site – then sign up for the Music App Blog email list before the deadline. All members of the list will automatically be entered in every draw. You can sign up here and, as a bonus for signing up, you also get a copy of the Music App Blog’s ‘25 iOS music apps to get you started‘ guide. And if you are already signed up for the email newsletter, then consider yourself entered :-)

As soon as I can organise after entries close, I’ll draw a suitable number of names at random from all those entered. I’ll then notify the lucky winners by email and include the necessary promo code. I’ll also post a list of the winners here. If you are one of the lucky ones, do make sure to use the code ASAP – iTunes Redeem Codes generally have a relatively short life span once they have been issued.

If you can’t wait for the draw to give Cubasis a try, then click on the appropriate link to purchase and download the app from iTunes. It is priced at UK£34.99 and is, frankly, worth every penny. However, if you want to be in with a chance of winning a free copy, get in touch or join the email list before the deadline.

Good luck :-)

    1. I think I should definitely win this one. I have been signed up here for a long time and I’ve never won an app. It’s time I did, don’t you think? Just throw my name in the hat 500 times – that should do it.

      No. I’m just kidding… about cheating, not about wanting to win Cubasis.

    2. I’m in, finger crossed to win a copy.

    3. You goto ask yourself one question. Do you feel lucky ? I do :)

      Best of luck to you all … Be lucky

      oh, please please please…

    7. I would just like to echo ZenLizard’s thoughts/post.

      That’s all. ;)

    8. Hi All…. yep, already been a massive response to this one…. Not surprising I guess :-) A big ‘thank you’ to Stefan and Lars for making it possible…. best wishes, John

      • Hi John
        If I don’t win which is a given as I couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo a lately, then I need to get a sequencer sorted as I have been fannying around without choosing one for ages, hence like I wrote to you by email, I find myself getting distracted messing with some noise making wacky APP [eg. DR-OM, have you had a mess with it John?.. Proper screwed up].
        Anyway, sorry to repeat myself but…..
        I love and use Live: No iOS sequencer by Ableton to date and as you say no whispers of that changing either.
        I am only an amateur wanna be so thought Nothing too complex at present.
        Funds are a little stretched [anybody out there lend us a grand?… No?….ok I will go low but if I need to spend more than I will as I want something that’s not verging on toy type APP’s]
        NanoStudio any Robin Hood John
        Regards and many thanks for all your time and efforts.

    9. I already have it so I hope you all win! :D

      • Funny, after owning several other sequencing apps I plunked down for it too only last week and it’s very, very refined and nice to work with. It’s not cheap from an iOS point of view but in contrast to the PC/Mac world it’s super cheap! There’s a lot of stuff built in if you’re working unconnected but at home throw in the iConnnectMIDI4+/2+ and some hardware synths and controllers in addition to the iPad synths and they can now all converge into Cubasis interface. I think the only other thing that holds a candle to it is Gadget which is not as open in a MIDI context (far from it). Point being if you can operate in Gadget then you can easily get started in Cubasis. From then on whatever you can connect it to is yours for creative manipulation.

    10. I hope I’ll win!
