Cubasis 2.8.2 not on uk App Store,
Cubasis 3 ???

Can’t find any updates??

I have been a long and faithful user of Cubasis for over 4/5 years.
Now they bring out CUBASIS 3.

And I have to pay £50.00 gbp…
This is a Joke right???

Why should I pay twice for the same (more or less) app???
I have paid my money once, I will not be paying again…

Maybe a reduction for users of Cubasis 2, but not for us faithful users to pay more money…

Sorry but I will NOT be buying it again.

Facebook users of Cubasis are very angry, and confused as to why they should pay again…

This is totally not fair on existing users…

Where is 2.8.2???
Nothing in App Store???

I agree! Much too expensive for nothing really new. Maybe I will upgrade if the Price is 50%. :cry:

I know it’s a “New” app, but for me a dedicated faithful long standing Cubase (Atari st user) and a user of Cubase on pc, and now on iPad,
This is a kick in the teeth…

Thank you Steinberg
1, for trying to get me to pay money for something I already bought and paid my money for.
2, for your loyalty to existing users/customers.
Reduce it for existing users £19.99, full price for new customers

Hi Yamahasy85,

Since its introduction back in Dec 2012, Cubasis has seen more than thirty updates, with many new feature additions. All of these updates were free for existing customers.

Cubasis 3 was rewritten from scratch, adding a new iPhone version, as well as more than twenty new user-requested features. Cubasis 3 took the full team several years to make. It’s no simple update from previous version, but a complete new app instead. Apple does not offer sale options like a grace period or similar.

We hope for your understanding that we have to sell Cubasis for the full price, after offering 30+ free updates for our existing customers between 2012 and 2019!


Just to clarify:
But this still does NOT mean that one could transfer from Cubasis LE2 to Cubasis 3, does it?

Hi whitelight,

Please have a look at our dedicated Cubasis LE 3 information:
