edited December 2019 in General App Discussion

Dear all,

After more than 30 free Cubasis updates, I’m very pleased to announce the immediate availability of Cubasis 3!

Needless to say I’m very proud of the great little Cubasis team, who worked 24/7 for quite some time, fully rewriting Cubasis 3 from scratch, rethinking the app to make it look and perform perfectly on the brand-new iPhone version and so much more.

Download Cubasis 3 on the App Store

Cubasis 3 is by far the biggest Cubasis version we've ever released, adding iPhone support and more than twenty user-requested features and improvements.

If you’re satisfied with Cubasis 3 please support us by rating the app in the App Store!

Thank you,
Lars

Cubasis 3 can be purchased as download through the App Store and is not available for free to existing customers of previous versions of Cubasis, priced at 49.99$/54.99€.

Cubasis 2 and its corresponding in-app purchases remain available in the App Store. The price for Cubasis 2 will be reduced to 23.99$/26.99€.

In addition, the price for the Full Feature Set In-App Purchase, included in Cubasis LE 2 will also be reduced to 14.99$/16.99€.

    Hi there @LFS thanks very much for this update.
    When is it getting released in the UK?

  • I can not find in the Russian app store, are there any restrictions?

  • @Lars Interesting business model surprised you didn’t go down the typical desktop DAW route and have it as a paid upgrade?

    I assume it’s because of the way Apple store works purchases work that you couldn’t make the new features as a IAP?

  • @Turok said:

    Same boat.its says not currently available in the uk

  • So us C3 full price for C2 users?

  • Group tracks, full screen mixer and now on the Phone too .... awesome 😀

  • Congratulations - this looks like an amazing release :)

  • Well I now know what I will be buying with my Christmas App Store gift cards 😀

    Upgrades are pretty tricky on the App Store, most devs have to do it this way. Cubasis has been around since 2012 I think, so paying £50 every 5 or 6 years doesn't seem too onerous for a DAW.

    Hi jumpercollins,

    Unfortunately Apple does not offer upgrades.
    Plus, Cubasis has seen 30+ free updates.

    I assume it’s because of the way Apple store works purchases work that you couldn’t make the new features as a IAP?

    Not possible, Cubasis 3 was fully rewritten from scratch, it's a brand-new app and no update.

    Hope that helps!

    Best wishes,
    Lars

    The full screen mixer and track groups look great. One omission is the lack of full Aux channels (it looks like it's just effect sends, as per the older Cubasis), but this is just a nitpick, the mixer has definitely had a major upgrade. I hope crossfades between audio regions are now possible, or if not that they will be on the roadmap at least.

  • Fair enough. If it is working good on IPad Pro I will buy it for sure.

  • This looks like an amazing update. Also, thanks for allowing us with lots (or all) IAPs to transfer them.

    The one thing the feature lists or videos does not touch upon: is it possible to have multiple tempos/time signatures in one song now? That is the one feature that has forced me to work in Cubasis alternatives lately. I'm not trying to pick a hole in your excellent work with this amazing update, but would be good to know pre-purchase of the new version.

  • If you have been following this forum you know it was the same pricing strategy when Cubasis transitioned to Cubasis 2. I think it is fair, this team consistently puts out plenty of free updates in between the major versions.

  • Not in Italy store yet.

    Thanks @hellquist!

    Tempo/signature track is on our list for the future, but not included in v3.
    Please refer to the first entries of this post where I've listed all new features, as well as the improvements.

    Hope that helps!

    Best,

  • A 'Bundle Price' could have been a nice middle ground here to be honest.

    Mostly I'm interested in the potential improvements to the mini sampler but for now I'll pass unless santa gives me more gift-cards for Christmas. (So for now I will not be able to assist with answering questions around Cubasis 3).

    Let's just hope this is not an 'intro price' :)

  • Drink coffee, check email, check the AppStore on repeat 😄

    Check now. Is out.

    Ios13 only - so Need the line 6 sonic port to work with ios13 before I buy it.

  • For one it's going to be interesting to how many iPhone users will actually get Cubasis 3 after numerous 'I want Cubasis on my iPhone' posts :)
