Steinberg has updated Cubasis to 2.0 bringing lots of new features for both professional musicians and beginners.
First of all time-stretch - long waited feature requested by many users. There's manual and auto mode.
Pitch shift is another requested feature.
New channel strip makes Cubasis more suitable for professional use. Great to have saturator on each channel.
Though it is great update and great intro price for new users there are still some important features missing: Ableton Link support and 12" iPad Pro interface - it is still scaled version of 9" ipad.
