The best! Period.

Wow I have dreamed of a DAW like this one on mobile device for years. I dare anyone to name one that comes even close for audio recording mixed with midi. This is a portable recording studio. The integration with third party effects and virtual instruments is so smooth. I guess most of the bad reviews were left months ago when the app was still in its infancy but really, this app today deserves nothing less than 5 stars. I have used cubase on desktop my whole life and trust Steinberg to deliver awesome products. Even if the app starts with bugs they eventually make you a satisfied customer. You can even tell by the way almost every review here is address by a human. Try finding many developers like that.
This app looks beautiful on my iPad screen. It has all the essential features cubase has, down to the colorization of individual tracks. The way files, settings and features are managed and selected is pure genius. I could go on and on but i will let you judge for yourselves after downloading the lite version if you want to try first. I can safely recommend to any serious musician wanting to have a reliable mobile recording studio to just close their eyes and get Cubasis 3. Most issues you may have will eventually get resolved because the devs are listening, so what do you have to loose?

Crazy improvement

Wow worth every penny works fest and GR8. just wold love multilayer sampling and combining sounds in the sampler and controlling the midi ccs thru midi I’m sure A lot of musician Will buy it also sf2 etc import thanks I really love it. on Cubasis 2 I had Maybe 2 months was just little hard but this won is just crazy thanks still needs some fixes stability the mute gets frozen some times the glue doesn’t behave well wold love to be able to control volume and knobs thru midi also DSP has to be fixed and in app plugins like wave crackles when using microsonic bass crackles some Times will have to wait a bit for a meager update. :UPDATE V301: Hi thanks for the update still waiting for some midi options mainly for when starching an audio should be detailed not unclear also to be able to see track in full screen the update is a GR8 1 this shows Cubasis is working hard the cpu can be a little better it’s much smother after new update but still sometimes spikes up also would love to see running Cubasis on external usb thru camera connection kit thanks keep up you GR8 work thanks UPDATE: on my new iPad Pro still crashing maybe because iOS 15 also wold be nice if I can export individual tracks and each track on Their own length UPDATE: I know that you can do separate tracks, but when doing this option, it exports according to the longest track and the rest is empty so please if you can fix it. also it would be nice if the resolution of the tracks gets updated thanks

Burhan Zawahiri ,

Decent DAW, I highly recommend. Amazing what I can do on my PHONE

So I’ve been working with this software since Cubase 5 and I must say this app is absolutely amazing for a mobile app, I feel way more “unlimited” in this app than I did with GarageBand & sequencing is such a breeze.. BUT what I would take this app OVER THE TOP for me would be two simple things: One, it was be AMAZING to have TIME MARKERS. So much easier to see where I’m at in my project if i can just label a “Verse” “Chorus” “Bridge” etc and if that becomes implemented we should be able to have the option to click on our “verse” or “chorus” and just copy the whole section & paste it to where we need it. It would speed up workflow so much.. And of course, more VST’s. I loved HalionOne as a stock engine but I’m assuming Microsonic is essentially the answer to that? But other than that, I LOVE this app and it’s definitely my go to until I can build an actual set up with Cubase 11. Thanks for satisfying my creative urges yall are seriously amazing.
