Please add Output Device Selection to iOS version

I’d love for the developer to add Audio Output Device selection to the iOS version of this app. I currently have a usb c dock with usb for my audio and I’d love to have the HDMI output for video output only. Currently with both plugged in, the audio automatically routes to the HDMI. I’d like to have more control. Is this possible? Love the app btw.

Using Apple’s USB-C A/V dongle, you can have HDMI video and USB audio enabled simultaneously. Other hubs don’t automatically detect this.

It would still be nice to have the option to select this in iOS. Perhaps this is an iOS feature that needs to be enabled. I’m inching towards a 5 star review. Just need to add Markers in the DAW and I’ll upgrade my review lol.

It had so much potential

Using the app is great, was easy to find out how to write midi and arrange and just what I was looking for. If this had more functionality on a demo, it would be perfect.

Coming from someone who has used and purchased Cubase for 10 years, the demo limitations in this mobile app are a complete joke. 30 minute demo timer doesn’t even give you enough time to learn how to use the mobile app. It took me 5 minutes to find out how to start writing a MIDI track. You can’t start a new project, all settings revert after 30 minutes, you can’t export MIDI in demo.

The only reason I would ever use my phone to track or write music is when I am on the go so I can get an idea written and translated so I can export or copy into my desktop DAW when I get home. This demo app doesn’t allow me to do that. I’d be willing to spend a few bucks on the app for sure but I am not buying a hardware license to use my phone to track ideas. I don’t know what subset of people record on their phone but this isn’t really what I’d consider a “Lite edition” (Cubasis LE). Maybe if they make a true LE for just tracking ideas and charge $3 I’d buy it.

See all supported devices listed on our website at: Apart from this, please feel free to give the app a test drive for 30 minutes, which can be continuously restarted. Hope that helps! Best wishes & stay well, Lars

Love this app! Please add stereo flip and graphic eq?

I’ve been using app in some version for the past two years. I find overall being able to record in pretty high quality using just an ipad allows me to over look most of the few short comings it has. Historically I haven’t been a cubase user but I’ve found myself pretty happy using it to the point I will probably stick with it

That being said I would love if they added stereo flipping and a graphic eq.
