I’m not sure how this can be accomplished with the Dongle copy protection. But all I know is that I badly need it. And I do think it’s a little unfair that the only way to get it is by BUYING another copy of Cubase. Is there NOTHING we can do about this at all?
I’d even be willing to pay for a SECOND dongled version of Cubase 8.5. But, really is there any need to charge full price? How about charging maybe $99 to current 8.5 customers for this SECOND dongle that contains 8.5? which will only run on a certain machine? Can this be done?
I can’t tell you how often I need to do one operation (archiving) while I do my normal mixing and mastering, and this would save me a BOATLOAD of CPU hours.
What can we do about this?
