    • I don’t own cubase yet for ipad, but audiobus just came out with an update to make stuff run better. I would imagine before, on ipad2, with say animoog and cubase running together with something else would have cause crackling and so on, but now maybe not.

  1. I’d wait on Cubasis, it’s not ready for primetime. Way too many missing and poorly implemented features for the premium price. The VIs and effects are dumbed-down crap, and midi/audio editing is clunky at best. Lots of strange choices like 16bit support only, no time stretching, no mix automation, limit of 3 inserts per track… and inserts are pre-fader only, which means you can’t mix your track without attenuating the input to the effect. Super lame.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 12 Thumb down 8
  2. This is exactly what i’m looking for but on an Intel I5/I7 with a bigger touch panel.
    They should port it to windows 8 and microsoft surface. It would be a real killer app
