Clearly an IOS centered update.
How about giving Android some focussed attention,? its not like we didnt pay for Cubasis.

Quick actions excist on Android too.
Android also has bluetooth keyboards n mouses.
Drag n drop audio files to the media bay would be nice

A material design icon for Android 13 OneUI 5 would be great.

And these are mild requests and not even speaking of audio functional features that IOS have n Android doesnt.

Besides that… 10 year anniversary and no new instruments or effects [across OS’s]?

A bit dissapointing as we have been waiting for an update for so long. :pensive:


A closer integration with Cubase please - all instruments and effects should ha e corresponding and equally sounding parallels in Cubase.

Hi @Edgeconnector,

Due to many features which are only available on iOS and/or the desktop world, this won’t be possible unfortunately.


Well then at least the instruments should be available both placed - and as much of the rest - or there could be a compability mode excluding options in Cubasis that are not transferable to Cubase.

Hi @Edgeconnector,

Cubasis is designed for mobile devices, and comes with many features unavailable in our desktop version and vice versa.

Where possible, tracks and settings are transferred. In other cases, you have the option to freeze tracks, before exporting projects to be imported with Cubasis.

Hope that helps.

Is it now possible to route the cubase click sound to a different output than main output as in Cubasis 2?

Maybe there are users that finish their composition/song in Cubasis - but I am guessing that a lot of users use Cubasis when it is more practical to use Cubasis for putting down some new ideas - e.g. on the train or airplane. For that usage it would be nice if Cubasis had a compatibility mode - I had not imagined that Cubasis should do everything that Cubase can do - but it would be nice if the imported Cubasis project was just as it was in Cubasis - when you imported it in Cubase. Freezing removes the MIDI information - so though the sound is then the same as it was in Cubasis - I would like to be able to start where I left off - and have the possibility of using the MIDI for other instruments etc. in Cubase. It should at least be possible to have the instruments present in Cubasis present in Cubase as well.
Kind Regards Rasmus

Hi @Edgeconnector,

You should be able to do this already, if you limit yourself to using audio tracks with the regular Cubasis stock effects, and instruments such as MicroSonic etc.

Hi @Sakey69,

Is it now possible to route the cubase click sound to a different output than main output as in Cubasis 2?

Actually, this is already possible since the initial Cubasis 3 release via the dedicated metronome buttons located on the output channel strips in the mixer. The number of visible master output channel strips depends on your HW in use.

Hope that helps!

-well that is what I do - but the sounds in Cubase are sometimes not the same - but yes - I can memorize a list of transferable sounds -and only use those - until the Cubase team decide to replicate Cubasis sounds in Cubase.
Merry Christmas - Rasmus

I am looking to start using Cubase as I have recently purchased Maschgina MK3 and I have started using a lot of IOS on iPad I have used GarageBand but really like the feature in Cubase It says if u download Cubase LE u can upgrade for 14.99 yto full Cubase 3 but when I push the button to purchase it transfers me to a 29.99 purchase price am I missing something?

Hi @Matthew_Gonzales,

Cubasis is currently 40% OFF, but you have to be super quick since the sale already ended (just a few hours left)…

Please note that the Cubasis LE offer mentioned is only available for customers of an audio device, which unlocks Cubasis LE from demo (see the list of supported devices here).
