Forward to perfection!

Thanks Lars for another amazing version of the iconic DAW! Awesome music writing tool upgrade for my studio, after years of using Cubasis 2. Now it is on my 6s Plus, and I'm super happy!! Just curious: my fully loaded Cubasis LE 3, is it now the same as Cubasis 3? Or I've missed something from the full version? Anyway, I'm plain happy, guys! Keep it up for the better!! Stay healthy as well!

Cubasis le 3

I bought a Yamaha AG06 mixer which was supposed to give me access to more features. It’s worked in the past, but all of the sudden it tells me I can’t export my mixdowns from the cubasis app to my files. Maybe I’m just missing something, but it won’t let me share my track or download it unless I upgrade. This is very ironic to me because we’ve paid the $30 to upgrade previously, and the app wouldn’t restore my purchase. Why can’t I export my mixdowns if I have a mixer which is supposed to give me access, and we’ve paid the $30 upgrade price in the past? If I’m just overlooking something please let me know

Hi pureockfury18, Unfortunately, the App Store does not provide comparable update options, to what we have in the desktop software world. Cubasis LE 3 has been released as a separate app release to the previous Cubasis version, which itself received 30+ free feature and maintenance updates over several years. Cubasis LE 3 can be unlocked from demo mode via the same supported devices. We also offer you to freely transfer your existing instrument and effect in-app purchases. Alongside, Cubasis LE 3 comes with a new Full Feature Set IAP, which can be purchases separately. From time to time, the IAPs are offered on sale. For more details, please have a look at our dedicated Cubasis 3 Sales statement article: Hope that helps, Lars

This game is a monstrocity ,


I purchased the UR 12 audio interface, and the manual says it unlocks the full access of the app once connected to my device, but it does not. Am I doing something wrong???

Developer Response ,

Hi This game is a monstrocity, Thank you for your rating! These are the steps to unlock Cubasis LE 2 and Cubasis LE 3 from demo mode: (1) Launch Cubasis LE (2) Connect the UR12 device to the iPad. After a short moment, a popup message should appear that Cubasis LE has been unlocked from demo mode. If you encounter issues during the process, please follow the setup example, to learn how to connect the UR12 with your iPad: Here, it is strongly recommended to use the original Apple Camera Connection Kit or Lightning to USB adapter. If the problem persists, please file a bug report at our forum at Thanks again & stay well! Lars
