Here's a compilation album I did recently showcasing some of my best hits of last year. All the songs were produced using Korg Gadget as the primary DAW with other bits added in from other apps. This video showcases Cubasis's timestretching, audio-transposing and mastering. If you like what you heard please subscribe and leave a thumbs up. I hope to have Volumes 2 and 3 ready shortly before I move on to new productions. Happy new years everyone!

  • Great stuff in here!

  • Thanks! I'm still learning Cubasis. I've managed to improve the sound quality considerably and will have an updated upload ready tomorrow.

    Check back in here by the end of the day because the new mix eliminates most of the muddy sounds and artifacts thanks to some tempo and key tweaks as well as better EQ.

    Wow, these past couple of days have been an intensive crash course in Cubasis for me. I went from having next to no
    interaction with this app to becoming completely glued to it. The new Waves Plugins certainly help. I can hear the differences in tone, not to mention they look beautiful.

    Anyway, as promised here is the final--and I mean final--upload. I ran into a number of bugs while enhancing this mix, (which you'll be able to discern almost immediately). Turns out on a Mini 4 there can be some tiny beat drifts that aren't apparent in the app but come up in a render. I've had to create workarounds such as mix-downs and manual chop and paste.

    The silver lining is, having worked so intensely with it these past few days, I feel like Cubasis for IOS is powerful and fun to use. Not sure how I feel about using midi in it yet but that's another battle for another day. :)

    I got the idea for using Cubasis after initially trying this project in Ableton Lite. Not sure about the Pro version of Live but I wasn't very happy with the pitch shifting of these tracks so I turned to Cubasis. All of these tracks have been pitched anywhere between -2 +2 semitones, which seems to be the maximum before it gets dodgy.

    Here is the new upload, I hope everyone can enjoy it:
