I’m fairly sure that that’s not right.
I only used it a few times and it was a year ago. [I’d left my dongle on the other side of the country]
From memory: you need to go on line to get an activation code - if you want to use it for more that 30 days. Once you enter the code something (unique to your computer) is written to the hard drive and thereafter you can use it where ever/when ever you want - regardless of internet connections.
I’ll fire up my lap-top as soon as I get a chance to check.
It still doesn’t address the compatibility thing though.
If you need a guide track based on a C5/C6 project: you could export a wave file (or however many you need) and then import into the LE project. … but that’s starting to get messy and doesn’t address the availability of LE.
It’s hardly ideal to have to buy a new interface just so you get access to “free” software … which may still have compatibility issues.
Hey: the one dongle “super licence” thread on the old forum started on the Cubase page and was moved to The Lounge. Now one licence allows access to all smaller versions.
Don’t give up the fight! [I say “fight”, of course I mean good natured debate which will lead to a better featured, more user friendly product!]
