Steinberg releases with version 3.4 the latest update of its Cubasis audio sequencer app for iOS, Android and Chrome OS. These include Ableton Link support, plus numerous workflow and performance improvements.


HAMBURG, Germany — Steinberg has today announced the immediate availability of Cubasis 3.4, the next update to the award-winning Cubasis 3 app, available through the App Store and Google Play.

Since its first version, Cubasis has facilitated the use of third-party plug-ins and external controllers, recently adding MIDI Learn, Mackie Control (MCU) and HUI support, Audio Unit multi-out, keyboard shortcuts and much more. With Cubasis 3.4, Ableton Link is now added to the extensive compatibility list, allowing users to connect with Ableton Live and other music-making apps and devices that support Link.

New workflow improvements for MIDI recording now allow users to freely place the locators to start recording. The Chord Buttons create chord sequences via single taps, and with MIDI time-stretch, users can adjust the speed of MIDI sequences with a few taps.

With its new State Save improvements, Cubasis 3.4 reopens projects in exactly the same state as before: editors display the same zoom levels and remember the position for each audio and MIDI event, the arranger, the mixer channel width, user setup choices and much more.

“By adding Ableton Link support and over 75 improvements to Cubasis 3.4 — most of them customer requests — the team have further extended its vast range of tools and technologies. We can justifiably claim that, by providing almost limitless possibilities for music production, Cubasis is one of the most powerful mobile music production apps today,” says Marketing Manager Lars Slowak.

Performance improvements have also been included in Cubasis 3.4 for the Android and iOS platforms, thanks to the high-accuracy CMSIS-DSP compute kernels provided by Arm.

Together with its powerful features and the newly introduced improvements, Cubasis 3.4 is now more efficient than ever before with processors using the Arm architecture.

“Professional audio and other high-end use cases, like Steinberg’s Cubasis 3.4, require the very best from the underlying compute architecture,” says Reinhard Keil, Senior Director of Embedded Tools, Arm, “Arm’s CMSIS APIs, including CMSIS-DSP, are designed to broadly enable precisely this — putting the full potential of the Arm compute architecture at developer’s fingertips.”

Availability and pricing

Cubasis 3.4 is available through the App Store for 49.99 euros, including German VAT, or

49.99 US dollars. Through the Google Play Store, Cubasis 3.4 is available for 29.99 euros, including German VAT, or 29.99 US dollars. This update is free for Cubasis 3 customers.
