I’ve been using trial versions of both Cubase and Protools that I received as part of an interface purchase. I was sort of leaning towards purchasing Cubase until the hardware dongle requirement surfaced.
Cubase literature that I can find on it, says nothing other than its required.
Can someone answer specifically if I must have that dongle plugged into my computer every time I open Cubase, or, is the hardware only required during initial set up? As well, can someone please comment on if the dongle can be used on 2 computers or only one? I use my laptop when I travel to record and ‘tweak’ recordings, and my desktop to record or process music. Must I have 2 licenses in this use case?
Thank you to anyone who could help clarify this
