CUBASE AI 12 / CUBASE LE 12 Downloads

Download faster, more convenient and more reliably using the STEINBERG DOWNLOAD ASSISTANT.

⚠️ Requirements for installations without Steinberg Download Assistant

Before installing any of the Cubase 12 components below, the following utilities must be installed resp. updated:

Steinberg Activation Manager⬇ macOS⬇ Windows
Steinberg Library Manager⬇ macOS⬇ Windows

If they are missing or not up-to-date, the installation without the Steinberg Download Assistant will fail.

Installation of content resp. Content Sets

  • Download the desired content resp. Content Set. 
  • Cubase content generally consists of vstsound files. Content containing multiple vstsound files is being provided as an ISO disk image. ISO disk images can be easily mounted as virtual volumes by double-click.
  • Double-click on one of the downloaded vstsound files.
  • The Steinberg Library Manager will be started automatically and offers the installation of all vstsound files in the same folder.
  • When downloading several content titles, it is good practice to move all vstsound files to the same folder first. In this way all vstsound files can be installed by a single double-click.
