Steinberg brings us the latest version of its flagship iOS DAW. Cubasis goes to version 2.4 and brings us one new main feature that will make power users and those who know what AUv3 MIDI is all about very happy.

Here’s what’s new in 2.4:

  • Audio Unit MIDI support – Playfully integrate third-party AU MIDI plug-ins such as arpeggiator, step sequencer and others like Bram Bos Rozeta Sequencer Suite (requires iOS11)
  • Files app support – Easily browse, search and organize all your Cubasis files – on your iPad, in iCloud Drive and across other cloud services (requires iOS11)
  • Maintenance and support

It feels a little short for a Cubasis release that isn’t just a maintenance. To be honest I was hoping for a little more in the next release of Cubasis. Not that AUv3 MIDI isn’t nice, but it wasn’t at the top of my list. Ideally I’d like to have seen a universal app or something on the way to that anyway. Perhaps that’s too much to ask for just yet. Maybe that will come later, in a Cubasis 3 maybe?

Anyway, Cubasis LE also got update, but the AUv3 MIDI functionality is in the IAP, so it doesn’t come for free.

The full version of Cubasis is on sale too, down from its normal price of $49.99 to $24.99, its Waves plugins IAP is also 50% off at $9.99. Cubasis LE is free, but with an IAP to get the full functionality.

Cubasis is on sale until the 10th of April
