Steinberg Releases Cubasis 2.1

Cubasis 2.1 for iOS isn't a maintenance release. Steinberg have completely refreshed the MIDI editor and added RoomWorks SE reverb and AudioBus 3 support amongst many other things.  

We reviewed Steinberg's very capable DAW for iOS, Cubasis 2, back in November 2016. You can read our review here and find out why we rate it highly.

Cubasis 2.1 was released today and shows Steinberg's continued commitment to bringing the core features (and some) from Cubase for Mac and PC to Apple's mobile platform. It's a full music production system for iPad that includes everything you need to get recording, editing, mixing and sharing your music along with real-time time-stretching and pitch-shifting, a studio-grade channel strip, pro-sounding effects, massive instrument refills, a refreshed MIDI Editor and many more powerful features.
