Heard about Steinberg’s incredible Cubasis LE For iPad? It’s a breakthrough multitouch sequencer that turns your iPad into a sophisticated mobile recording studio.
And as Xkey and Xkey Air are the world’s premier mobile keyboards for iPad (and iPhone, Android, Mac and Windows) … we thought they’d be the perfect partner for Cubasis LE.
Steinberg thought so too. So now – from September 22, 2016 – Xkey and Xkey Air will come bundled with Cubasis LE. Xkey is one of the approved hardwares that will enable amateur and professional musicians to experience Cubasis LE.
The Cubasis LE bundle also applies to existing Xkey and Xkey Air customers.

Here at CME we love Cubasis LE
We were excited to be interviewed recently about the Xkey and Cubasis LE bundle. Here’s what we had to say:
“Cubasis LE is the perfect partner for the Xkey 25-key mobile and 37-key studio models,” said CME founder Zhao Yitian. “Cubasis LE supports bluetooth instruments, and our Xkey Air version is the world’s leading bluetooth MIDI keyboard. Now musicians really can enjoy all the benefits of a versatile wireless recording studio, wherever they are.”
Jordan Rudess, composer and keyboardist for Dream Theater, is the Chief Musical Officer at CME. “Steinberg’s Cubasis LE for iPad sets the standard for iOS sequencers,” said Rudess. “With up to four audio and four MIDI tracks, 16-bit 44.1 kHz audio I/O and touch slide mix controls, Cubasis LE is a materpiece of iOS progamming. I find using Cubasis LE on iPad completely intuitive.”
