CUBASE PRO 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 software components below, the following utilities must be installed or updated:

Steinberg Activation Manager⬇ macOS⬇ Windows
Steinberg Library Manager⬇ macOS⬇ Windows
Steinberg MediaBay⬇ 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. 
  • 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.

The online help and PDF manuals are available on


In general, we recommend downloading via the Steinberg Download Assistant and always using the latest program version.

In exceptional cases, it can be useful to install an older version. For this purpose, previous installers can be downloaded using the links below. These files are not available in the Steinberg Download Assistant anymore.

The installers can be used to install Cubase from scratch or to update older existing Cubase Pro 12 installations.

However, please note that we can provide support for the latest release only.  

Information on every single update can be found in the Release Notes.
