What’s New

Version 3.3

What’s New in Cubasis LE 3.3

・MIDI Learn, Mackie Control (MCU) and HUI protocol support
Easily control Cubasis remotely, via your external controller. Enable MIDI Learn and simply move a knob or fader on your controller to assign it to a selected parameter. What's more, you can load existing presets for your controller or save your own. And if your controller supports the Mackie Control (MCU) or HUI protocols, you're covered right away too. Yes, it's that easy.

・Extended MIDI routing
Make use of extended MIDI routing options to create inspiring tracks in a snap. Modulate vocals to make them sound robotic, using the new extended MIDI routing options alongside our Waves Tune RT IAP or a third-party vocoder iOS app, manipulated via an existing MIDI track. Explore even more creative possibilities via advanced MIDI track-to-track routing options.

Music always comes first and we don't want anything to get in your way. We want to keep your creativity and enthusiasm flowing as smoothly as possible. Cubasis 3.3 includes many improvements which deliver the best possible performance with the utmost stability. For the complete list of improvements, issues and solutions, please visit us at

New features in Cubasis full feature set IAP

・Audio Unit Instrument Multi Out support
Cubasis is designed to let you focus on creating music. Audio Unit Multi Output support lets you quickly assign the single instrument sounds of a drum kit to individual outputs, or allows you to route individual instruments to discrete channels. Of course, when using these features you can expect unparalleled usability. This really sets our award-winning Cubasis app apart from the crowd.

・Sidechain support
Use a few simple taps to create that classic, warm pumping sound we all love when listening to many genres of music — be it hip hop, pop, heavy techno… you name it. But there is so much more to it. Create punchy kicks, make vocals stand out in the mix or separate frequencies from each other. It’s super simple to set up and yet so powerful.

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!

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

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
