HAMBURG, Germany — Steinberg today announced the immediate availability of Cubasis 3, the award-winning music production app that lets musicians and producers create music anywhere they go. Gravitating toward its desktop equivalent, Cubasis provides the same look and feel as Steinberg’s Cubase music software, and sports similar tools to perform, mix and share music productions, including many effects, hundreds of instrument sounds and third-party plug-in compatibility with Audio Unit, Inter-App Audio and Audiobus 3.
Previous versions of Cubasis only ran on the iPad, but with its third version, Cubasis has evolved into a full-fledged DAW now offering universal app support for both iPad and iPhone. This means that the app’s extensive feature set can now be used on a smaller screen without restricting usability.
Cubasis 3 is more performant than ever before, offering great new features and enhancements that let users get results quickly and easily. Group Tracks is one of many highlights that Cubasis has to offer. It combines multiple tracks so that they can be processed and mixed as though they were a single track — a special capability that is extremely useful when using the app on the limited real estate of an iPhone’s screen.
The mixer in Cubasis 3 has been revamped, now taking advantage of the entire display. It includes useful zoom modes and an eminently accurate level metering for as many tracks as are needed.
Also new in Cubasis 3 are the eight rearrangeable insert and send effects. Users can add up to eight insert and eight send effects from the many already included in Cubasis or can choose to use third-party effects via Audio Unit, Inter-App Audio and Audiobus 3. The insert effects can now be placed before or after the fader.
Cubasis 3 is purchased as download through the App Store and is not available for free to existing customers of previous versions of Cubasis. The price is 54.99 euros including German VAT. Cubasis 2 and its corresponding in-app purchases remain available in the App Store. Cubasis 2 will now be priced at 26.99 euros including German VAT.
