Disappointed with Cubasis 3 - worse performance with external USB equipment (Digitone)

I’m on an iPad Air 2 and I just upgraded to Cubasis 3 and was very disappointed to see the performance notably worse for me.
I’m running Digitone in via AUM or Audiobus. The latency was unusable and lots of digital drop out.

I appreciate my iPad is a little on the older side, but I thought Cubasis 3 was supposed to have been a rebuild to make everything work better? Worth a punt, but I’m reverting back to Cubasis 2 and getting a refund.

Anyone else have any experience with this?

Hi jameslondon74,

Thank you for your message.
Actually, the overall app performance should be improved with the lates v3.2 release.

Please give these steps a try:

  • Load an empty project
  • Close all running apps, including Cubasis
  • Shut down the iPad

Do you still encounter issues when using Cubasis after restarting the iPad? If so, could these be related to a specific 3rd party AU app?

In addition, pleas check if our dedicated Cubasis 3 Multicore-rendering & Latency Settings article is of additional help for you.

Hope that helps!

Stay safe
& best wishes,

Thanks Lars. I’ve since deleted C3 and received my refund so I’ll hold off for now. Sorry I couldn’t be more help troubleshooting this.
