Cubasis SALE – sale time for Steinberg’s brilliant iOS DAW/sequencer

Download from iTunes App Storecubasis logo 3Cubasis is, for my money, the best ‘all round’ DAW/sequencer we currently have under iOS and, while Auria Pro most certainly provides a more desktop-style feature set, Cubasis offers a slick interface and a well focused feature set that lets you get on with the core tasks of recording and mixing audio/MIDI music productions. And, as I reported a few months ago, when Steinberg released v.2.0 of Cubasis (and Cubasis LE) it bought a range of excellent new features in an update that was free to all existing users.

Cubasis has always been a slick and streamlined app and the feature set has always struck me as a pretty well balanced for the iPad platform. The v.2.0 update introduced a new time-stretch/tempo- matching option for those working with loops, new pitch-shifting options, a new channel strip for each channel (based on the similar concept in the desktop Cubase), a new creative effects options via Spin FX and new presets for both Micrologue and MicroSonic. All these new features just enhance an already very good all-around package for the iOS musician looking for a DAW/sequencing environment.

The new channel strip is very impressive....

The new channel strip introduced in v.2.0 is very impressive….

Anyway, Steinberg have run the occasional sale event on Cubasis, usually associated with either a holiday period or an update. And, with thanks to regular reader Scott for the heads-up, Steinberg have just launched another such event; Cubasis is now on a ‘50% off’ sale pricing…. so you can currently pick the app up for just UK£23.99/US$24.99. It’s not a holiday (at least, not here in Europe) so, aside from wanting to provide some competition for the sale currently going on for Korg’s Gadget, maybe Steinberg have some other news up their sleeves? We will have to wait and see.

Cubasis also now offers a sophisticated real-time time-stretch/tempo-match feature.

I purchased Cubasis on the first day it was launched at the full price and, as I’ve also been a Cubase user for many years on the desktop, Cubasis is pretty much my go-to DAW/sequencer on my iPad. Perfect? – no, not yet, but it is very good indeed and I’d have no hesitation in recommending it even at the full price of UK£48.99/US$49.99. However, at the 50% off sale price, Cubasis is absolute bargain and, given Steinberg’s long-standing reputation, it’s also nice to know that you are buying into one of the leading music tech brands. Top notch stuff so hit the download button and grab it while you can…..

    1. I sure wish you could explode a MIDI track to separate parts. As far as I could tell, that can’t be done. Anyone know for sure?

      • Totally agree. After nearly 4 years of innovation in practically every other area of iOS DAW design nobody seems to have improved on the wonderful midi editing implementation in Nanostudio. Up to 4 lanes per midi track is really great, and I hate having to constantly glue/combine layered midi parts in Cubasis

    2. Wishing it was universal. Got this plus phone for nothing

    3. Cubasis just got updated to version 2.1
      The best DAW on iOS just got better again :)
