This is amazing, thanks!

Thanks for all the work and the update guys !
Lots of fixes, remote drive support and the meters on the effects - cool :sunglasses:

Thank you!

Return to start position on stop - yay! Time for me to give the app a fresh start.

Took us some time, but there you have it … :wink:

Great update! Thanks to all of you for the hard work and consideration for our requests. :sunglasses:

This is great, thank you.

Does it include IPad Pro support to support the larger screen?

Sadly no. Still wasting all that beautiful space, the ugly old keyboard. Graphics not optimised. Come on, Steinberg!

Love the AU support an other improvements though.

Thanks for the update.
Really like the new bass and string and piano sounds. Genuinely useful sounds.

So glad to have metering on the compressor plugin now too :slight_smile:

Love in the air
Thank you Steinberg

This looks really great and I would love to try it, but I am running iOS 7.1.4. The app store says it will run it, however Steinberg’s page says it needs ios 8. Can anyone tell me if Cubasis 1.9.8 works on ios 7.1?

Sorry of this is the wrong forum.

Thanks for your nice comments so far!
If you like what you see, it would be of great help for us to have your app rating on iTunes as well!

Thanks for your support
& lots of great fun with 1.9.8!

Sirs, would you be updating Cubasis for the new IPad Pro, the only reason I upgraded to the IPad Pro was mostly for Cubasis, I hope that’s in the works, I’ll be willing to pay more for it, hopefully you have good news.

Dear cheappc,

we are investigating the possibilities on the iPad Pro:

Thanks! :sunglasses:

Do you support the PQI Air Pen?
I tap the Share button, but was unable to open the companion app.

Excellent and unexpected perhaps update indeed but;
When will Steinberg release fully optimised, dedicated iPad Pro version…?
As it is, Cubasis does run on iPad Pro flawlessly but, it is just resized, bigger version of standard iPad version…
