Cubasis 2 now available

Relaunched trice, no chance. Guess I need to back up via pc, cause iCloud back up is way to slow anyway for my all my current projects (21,6 gb) hope it works, if it didnt, I’ll report in a separate topic/post,


Hi JayZen,

Hope the update issue can be solved quickly at your end.

In any case, please make sure to regularly your projects and other files.
Data lost caused by whatever reason can be very painful!



Is Cubasis 2 optimised for iPad Pro 12.9"? If not, when is this planned?

Just an assumption since I see no specific mention: still no iPhone support?

I presume still no Iphone support, any plans for the future?

Thank you for this marvelous update.

Where are the busses? Lslowak had mentioned this should be in this update. Did I read something wrong?
This is an obvious and much needed improvement. What happened?
Thanks for the free update. I will still gladly pay for a decent reverb and busses. Any idea on when this may happen?
The busses have been spoken about since January or earlier. I’m wondering why they weren’t implemented here?

I haven’t tried it yet, but I’d like to say something. Thanks so much for pushing ahead and developing this. We all know that cubasis isn’t perfect, but equally we know it’s a fantastic but software. For me there only serious limitations I have are about the lack of audio unit support for guitar fx, and aside from including a greater array in cubasis, this isn’t really a Steinberg issue. I would like to give a huge round of thanks to the team.

I can’t remember where but I read some where that we need to delete Cubasis 1 before downloading Ver 2 on iOS, is that true? If so, will I lose any projects or IAA’s associated with those projects?

Also in Ver 2 can we use the same IAA plug in and use 2 different amp sims on the same track? For instance I have the Amplitude App and I have the Soldano Amp sim and the Orang Amp sim. I like to mix those amp sims to get my guitar sound. Thank you.

Cubasis 2 runs fine on the iPad Pro 12.9 but does not provide specific screen size options.
The topic is included in our backlog but unlikely to be changed within one of the next updates.

New features/versions will be announced once updates become available.

Please give Cubasis 2 a try on the super iPad Pro 12.9 (have it in use myself).
Cubasis 2 looks and performs great in my opinon.


We monitor the market on a regular basis for future release options (including the iPhone, Android etc.).
New versions will be announced once they become available.


Thanks Lars. I’m planning to get a 12.9 iPad in a few weeks so will give it a go. Thanks to the Steinberg team for the v2 update. I particularly like the new presets.

Normally it is not required to delete previous app version to install latest updates.

We strongly suggest to run regular backups of files/projects to protect your data in case of unforseeable problems.
Cubasis offers numerous formats to do so such as iTunes File Sharing, WiFi Server, Dropbox, iCloud Drive, external hardware & wireless drives etc.

Please refer to the Mixdown chapter of the Cubasis in-app help to learn more about the available options and how to use them.


Hi Kynan1,

Thanks for your message.

Please note that we announce new features and versions once an update becomes available only.

Cubasis is driven by a very small but powerful and skilled team.

We are aware of many feature requests and evaluate those carefully on a regular basis. Also we do our best to find the best compromise in planning new features, improvements and fixes for upcoming updates. Caused by the sheer number of requests and many factors such as costs in implementing particular features it is obviously not possible to include all requests in the very next update.

Have great fun using Cubasis 2!


Thanks for the nice comment, greatly appreciated!


Many thanks, Magnum Force!

We also hope that many more app developers jump on the board in providing Audio Unit updates for their applications.
That’s why we’ve made our commitment to the format when releasing full Audio Unit support back in February 2016.

Might be worth to let your favoured app makers know about your request and expectation!


Thanks surfer, greatly appreciated!

Hi JayZen,

Hopefully you’ve been able to sort out the issue and are now ready to give Cubasis 2 a go to focus on creativity!


Very thank of new update and very thanks of cubasis team.
But Why there is no ( automation follow events ) and ( midi control support ) option for control cubasis transport options with midi devices for play stop record and mixer sliders and control too many parameters of cubasis with midi control devices, quickly,easily,
in new update ? :frowning: :frowning: :frowning:
Automation follow events is very very important for when we have too many automations and we need that move our events .!!! :frowning: :frowning:

And , where is the record mode icon ? I always work with this icon and i was glad that this option is jackleg ore handy . I have seen tutorial cubasis in YouTube
And I haven’t seen this icon in main window or toolbars.

Hi Pejman,

Thanks for your nice comment, we’re glad to hear you like Cubasis 2!

Realising Cubasis 2 took our fairly small team several months of hard work, including long nights and weekends. Your requests are on our list for future updates and will be carefully evaluated once ready to be rolled in.

New features will be announced once they become available.

As stated in the maintenance list, please find the recording mode options located in the tempo / signature popup. Simply tap the song tempo display to open it.
