Cubase 4 AI is for Advanced Integration. This whole version of Cubase came out because of something they had going on with Yamaha at the time. It was an easy way to link and integrate all of your Yamaha hardware and it would automatically work great with Cubase 4 AI. You can purchase Cubase 4 AI separately if you want to, but I only suggest doing that if you have a lot of Yamaha gear and need it with Cubase otherwise you mine as well just get regular Cubase and you don’t need the integrated version.


If you are having issues with your Yamaha gear and Cubase gear, don’t call Cubase. They will direct you to call Yamaha first. I remember having several issues when this first came out and having to be on the phone with both Cubase and Yamaha reps and they are each blaming each other for the problems and issues. At the time I was really upset over some of the problems that I was having with some of my Yamaha gear and getting it to work right with this software. The only reason I had Cubase 4 AI was because it came with a piece of the Yamaha gear that I had purchased back at that time. This was about 8 years ago or so now.


The manual was a hassle and it was so hard to understand and navigate through, and talking to them on the phone was getting me no where so I just ended up just forgetting about the whole integration thing and just using everything the way that I intended to before I got this software with my gear.

It was a complete hassle and I don’t recommend you dealing with it. I think that Cubase made a mistake when doing this software and working with Yamaha. It was a complete mess up.
