I leaving on a trip over the holidays and I’m wondering if I can load Cubase 7 on my laptop and pull my USB eLicenser/dongle and put it on my laptop for the trip, or does Steinberg require me to buy two licenses for each copy?
Also, if the laptop gets stolen, do I have to buy another copy of Cubase?
As long as you have registered your Cubase ownership with Steinberg (I guess you have, as you’re posting here) I believe they are not completely inflexible when a dongle is lost or stolen. Just don’t make a habit of it
Ok, here is the new plan. I’m going to cheat on Cubase (sorry honey, but you won’t put out. I’m thinking with my dongle)…
I’m going to download a trial version of Abelton Live and or Reaper or something else and play with it on my long flight. I’ll come back to the one I love after my fling…
Usually you take more than one battery with you, some companies offer extended batteries that are bigger than the normal batteries, I get 8 hours plus from my Lenovo extended batteries so 2 of them cover it, one is sometimes enough if the work is not constant over 15 hours
It allows you to share your dongle over internet ( with password access, to avoid any “virtual thieft” of your license )
Works perfectly, some 3 seconds slow hang of cubase sometimes like when you open it or the first time you open the midi editor but apart from that the experience is 98 % the same.
I strongly advise you to test the demo before buying it .
I read your post (March 2010) regarding using Eltima Network Gate.
I travel with my laptop (& Cubase 7) but fear damaging or losing my dongle. So to be able to access my elicencer across the Internet would be a dream come true.
I’ve downloaded eltima network gate and can access my dongle across different computers on the same network - But (a big But) I’m not at all skilled in remote Internet access to PCs. I’ve never tried it in any respect.
I’ve checked Eltima website for guidance but it’s all gobbledegook to me. I assume I need to first purchase some remote networking software first (“netviewer” or similar?) and then work from there.
I was wondering if you might have time to give me an idiots guide to how I could set up facility which means my dongle is safely left in my home PC and I can access the Steinberg licences across the Internet from my laptop.
