Hey all, I just resurrected my Yamaha N12 from storage and want to get it up and running on a new Windows 10 PC. Previously ( years ago ) had everything running smoothly on a Windows XP box with Cubase 4.5.2.
I’ve read through lots of related posts and all the documentation on the Yamaha site and as far as I can tell it is possible to get it all this working together again ie. Cubase 4.5.2 on Windows 10 connected to Yamaha N12 mixer.
Looks like the only shortfall I may face is detailed here :
"In case you want to use AI Functions with Steinberg Cubase or Nuendo, you would need following version.
- Cubase 5.0.x, 5.5.x, 6.0.x, 6.5.x, 7.0.x"
As I only have Cubase 4.5.2, looks like all I’m going to miss out on is the ‘AI functions’ but I have to be honest, it’s been so long since I messed around with all this stuff, I’m not exactly sure what that means?! Can someone explain exactly what I’m going to lose? As I understand it once I’ve upgraded the firmware on the N12 I can’t go back so just want to be clear what I’m doing.
