Cubasis 1.7.2 Available Soon, Automation in 1.8

The details for the upcoming 1.7.2 update of Cubasis for iPad were posted today on the official Steinberg forums. This update fixes a list of known issues as well as increases the playback performance on all devices.

A big new feature is reserved for the next update though as Steinberg is going to add automation in 1.8, a feature that many users were missing in the powerhouse DAW.


Here is the full change log for 1.7.2 which should be available soon.

What’s new
– Audio track playback performance has been drastically increased on all devices.
– Audio track freeze
– Setup option to enlarge the audio recording buffer has been added.
– New latency setup option added (IO buffer size can be adjusted between 128/256/512).
– Maximum polyphony has been increased to a value of 128.
– New tracks will now be created below the selected track.
– CPU/Polyphony display has been overhauled (please refer to In-App help for more details).
– Newly created audio files appear highlighted in the MediaBay.
– A new overlay informs about imported files (replacing the previous popup).
– Separating files for tracks in mixdown now includes track names for each file.
– The touchable area of the preset selection arrows in Micrologue and Micro Sonic has been improved.
– Cycle mode is automatically activated when setting the locators to the selection by long tapping an event.
– Creating an event by double tapping in the arrange window area now automatically selects the corresponding track.
– MIDI tracks assigned to “No Instrument” now display drum pads instead of chord pads as an alternative to the keyboard.
– Several minor usability improvements.

  1. thanks Ricardo. quick question: when you refer to automation, are you talking about the feature described in this page

    that is basically the capability to adjust the volume level of a single track by using a broken line (dot by dot)?
    many thanks in advance for your reply

  2. Hi Filippo, that’s exactly what I would expect to be implemented in the next version. Auria is an iPad DAW that already has this feature for example. You can read more about the upcoming 1.8 on the associated roadmap topic at Steinberg’s forum:
