Never used DAW what version of Cubase should I use to start out with a Yamaha Motif XF8
Hi and welcome to the forum,
Yamaha Motif comes with Cubase AI. If the previous owner transferred the license to you, you can use it.
Be aware, every single Cubase AI license can be updated to Cubase AI 12 for free.
Thanks. I received an email from Steinburg years ago and I will look for the details contained in that email.
