    1. 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’ve noticed on Synthtopia there is always one or two jackasses that hit the negative button on every post, regardless of the post content. Some people just suck.

    1. Looks like some more big names coming (one very big one). You can see these in the Audiobus data files on a jailbroken device:

      Aurora Sound Studio HD
      BeatMaker 2
      bismark bs-16i
      DJ Mixer Pro
      FL Studio Mobile
      FL Studio Mobile HD
      Music Studio
      Papaya Broadcaster
      Peter Vogel CMI
      Peter Vogel CMI Pro
      Rhythm Pad (Drums/Drum Pad)

  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.

  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
