Cubasis on iOS… we’ve been asking for this since 2015 easily. I’m quite shocked I’m running an iPhone device around 4 times more capable than my iPad mini 2, yet I can’t run Cubasis on it. It’s an iPhone XS Max! Why is everyone talking about screen size? Clearly if we had the choice at the moment to use Cubasis on iPad instead of on the iPhone, we’d all pick the iPad. The thing is, i don’t ever carry my iPad around unless I could carry my computer. I want Cubasis on my phone because I can basically use it everywhere; I’m not gonna be carrying an iPad around just to use a “mobile” daw that isn’t really mobile.
Cubasis is my favorite DAW. But it not being on iPad is a massive disappointment only equivalent to not having NanoStudio 2 on iPhone (NanoStudio 1 was my phone DAW since Cubasis wouldn’t do it). But hey, NanoStudio 2 IS getting an iPhone port…
Honestly, iPhone Max are literally smaller iPad minis. They jave a screen that would do it justice. There are tons of “DAWs” on iOS that do a good job with the UI but lack the professionalism offered by Cubasis. I’ve been messing around with Audio Evolution Mobile and Multitrack DAW and seriously they fall short on several ends in comparison. They are great, and way cheaper, but I’d easily pay 30$ for a Cubasis on iOS. Hell, i already paid for the first one who wasn’t even on the iPhone, and i’ve been asking for the iPhone version (which was “on the works” 4 years ago) ever since.
It’s about time we get it.
In all seriousness workflow is king, if I can’t use Cubasis on my iPhone I will probably just stop using it now that I’ve been “forced” to look into other iPhone daws.
I will miss Cubasis, but I’d rather be able to port my songs from iPhone to iPad with ease; having to “reconfigure” the tracks simply cause I’m switching DAWs halfway through is to me a detriment bad enough to simply let go of the idea of using Cubasis.
Sorry if I sound a little bit “pissy”, but I’ve literally been waiting for this for over 4 years, and devs DID say it was gonna happen eventually. Now that I’m back in iOS music production after a few years, I realize there’s a Cubasis 2 yet the iPhone version is nowhere to be found…
Steinberg, please invest on this; there are so many threads which clearly indicate many of your users want it - and these are all iPad users. Just wait till you open up to a market that has never even considered your DAW cause they didn’t even know it existed because of the iPad App Store filtering.
