I use Touch OSC to control Cubase. Touch OSC can be custom configured by you to work the way you do and it works great. I can control just about everyting in Cubase and also use my iPad as a midi controller within Cubase. It only took me about two hours to learn and design my own custom Cubase layout.

Thanks for the Cubasis review, it gave ma apretty good idea what it is and what its not, also if it will make sense to install it on my iPad 2. Any comments on performance on older devices are always welcome. Next item on my wishlist: PPG Wavemapper!

Thanks for another wonderful episode chaps!

If possible, I'd like to see an Audiobus roundup, or some older apps revisited in light of it. Since I'm new to iPad I've decided t stick to apps that use AudioBus, copy/paste or just apps that play well together. Perhaps something like that?

Also LiveFX & Glitchbeats are Wonderful!!!

Thanks again chaps!

I own Cubasis. it isn't fit for purpose.

sounds are very basic. Ability to set loop begin and end points by keyboard missing. Which makes using the loop braces very hard.

No repeating of MIDI segments. Its more like a Cubasis 0.8 than a 1.0

Even the latest AudioBus features dont change my mind on this.

You forgot to show the Cue-Mix functionality of Cubase iC Pro. You can connect 4 iPads/iPhones to Cubase and each one can set an independent headphone mix...
