・Waves meets Cubasis. Chapter II.
After successfully partnering with Steinberg for their 25th Anniversary plug-in bundle a few years ago, Waves — the world’s leading manufacturer of award-winning effects processors — once more teams up with us for their highly acclaimed Waves Tune Real-Time and H-Delay plug-ins, available exclusively through in-app purchase in Cubasis on iOS.

・Waves Tune Real-Time IAP
Your ultimate real-time pitch correction tool for vocals. A dream tool that helps vocalists stay in tune while singing, feel confident, and focus on the emotion of their performance. Waves Tune Real-Time provides smooth, natural-sounding vocal pitch correction, instantly and automatically. And it’s exclusively available through Cubasis in-app purchase on iOS.

・Waves H-Delay now included in Waves Plug-in Bundle IAP
From classic old school PCM42-style effects like filtering, flanging and phasing, to slap-back echo, ping-pong delay and tempo-sync with modulation, H-Delay delivers the goods. Controlled by a super-intuitive interface that lets you get straight down to business, it is exclusively available in the Waves Plug-in Bundle IAP, including a free update for existing users!

・Multicore-rendering and improved Audio Unit performance
Create your music without limits. Cubasis gives you the freedom to use many more third-party Audio Unit instruments and effects plug-ins simultaneously than ever before. Multicore rendering support exploits the potential of newer devices to their utmost. What does this all mean for you? Simply focus on your song, and let Cubasis do the rest.

・45+ improvements
Cubasis is always at your side, providing you with the best possible user experience, the highest performance and rock-solid stability when capturing your inspiration. As well as all the great new features, Cubasis 3.2 provides many more user-requested improvements and fixes throughout the application.

Important Note:
When using Audio Unit plug-ins with Cubasis 3.2, we strongly recommend that you update your iPhone and iPad devices to iOS/iPadOS 14.2, which resolves several Audio Unit-related problems.

How to record killer vocals with the new Waves Tune RT plug-in in Cubasis.


After the update to 3.2 all the projects are popping and glitching with Auv3

Audio Engine Latency FEEDBACK

I realised the issue is directly related to the “Audio Engine Latency ” option. Switching OFF “Prevents crackling” and leaving the option as “Multi-core Rendering disabled: OFF” fixes the cracking issue.

(iPad Air 3, iOS 14.3)

Since I’ve updated I’ve noticed lots of clicks/pops with just Micrologue, particularly when tweaking sounds via ADSR, cutoff filter etc…

Probably related but random keyboard latency too (as in delay between playing keyboard & hearing the sound). If I change the preset being used, then go back to where it was the latency is gone.

So a few bugs perhaps? None of this happened prior to update.

(for info, iPad Pro 9.7”, iOS 14.2)

Great news and nice to have the 3.2 update just before Christmas. I love Cubasis 2 & 3. Working on a cover remake “Love Pains” in Cubasis 3 at the moment, see the clips on my dwprecords Instagram page. Thanks Lars and the Cubasis team.

Hi David_AU,

Thanks for your kind words.
We’re very glad to read that you seem to enjoy using the update!

Stay healthy,

Thank you Lars for the latest update.
I have used Cub 2 for many years and Cub 3 since launch.
I still use them both.
I purchased IAP Waves Real Tune for Cub 3.
Will there be another charge when I install Waves Real Tune on Cub 2?

Thanks for the update - it was a nice surprise to get the new delay added from the previous bundle purchase! I will likely get the Real Tune soon!

Thank you for sharing about turning Audio Engine Latency to “OFF” to prevent Cubasis from popping and glitching with Auv3’s!


Hi rtmusic,

Thanks to Waves for allowing us, to freely included the classic H-Delay to the existing Waves Bundle.

Enjoy the new update & stay well!


My audio units not found after the update… any answers?

Hi @Zhek,

We are unaware of issues in this regard.
Are you able to upload/share a short clip with us, that shows the problem?

Best wishes,

I just purchased an ipad pro w magic keyboard an reinstalled Cubasis 3 and it\s really awesome, BUT sometimes the shortcuts doesn’t work…it seems like it needs a touch on the screen to update before it works again…just saying!

And by the way…in the keyboard shortcuts setup, all the commands that uses cmd button, is written as ctrl button. I found it a bit confusing at first!
