I have a legitimate complaint about the copy protection. I love wavelab, but every update seems to work less and less and it’s always related to the copy protection. Adobe Audition doesn’t have protection and I own the master suite and it works flawless on startup…with WL I’ve tried diff keys, everything. THIS PROTECTION SCHEME IS SHIT.
When a customer is in house and mentions “why does every studio I’ve been to have problems with Wavelab…”, I think that steinberg has a problem. I will keep using Wavelab, because it’s the easiest. But steinberg needs to address this problem.
The main reason that I use WL is because PG is on here and is mad helpful. This problem has persisted for a long time since they moved to the key. My inability to to use the product at a time when I was with a customer highlights this problem.
