Coming Soon: Cubasis for iPad v1.2 Submitted to Apple (Changelog)
Steinberg have now submitted version 1.2 of Cubasis for iPad to Apple, and are hoping that it will be approved early next week. The update focusses on making the app rock-solid with many improvements to its operation as well as bug fixes.Â They have said that the next update will contain new features that they are already working on, including in-app purchases for more instruments.
Cubasis for iPad has caused quite a buzz in the iOS music community but unfortunately is missing some key features such as MIDI Clock Sync, a more complete MIDI specification and automation causing many people to hold off a purchase. There’s also currently no way to select mono inputs from your audio interface. It’s things like this that really let the app down and until these features are added and problems fixed it’s difficult to recommend it. Let’s hope that they listen to their users and implement these features soon!
Here’s the list of what’s coming in v1.2…
- Cubasis now supports up to 24 physical inputs giving you the possibility to record up to 24 audio tracks simultaneously!
- New information overlay for UNDO/REDO operations.
- Effect windows will now open immediately after they have been inserted.
