So very wrong, there has not been a cracked full version of Cubase since 2009 so that’s 7 years. I would say that’s pretty damn good for copy protection.
Steam on the other hand has everything available cracked I believe.
I actually like the dongle as I have Cubase on my PC in the music room (spare room) and my laptop for sitting downstairs watching the telly and editing stuff plus on my nephews Mac and all I need to do is plug the dongle into the usb slot on any of those computers for Cubase to work.
The one thing I do think though, as Cubase is very much protected it would be a fair option to allow genuine users to have a couple of activations possible similar to other DAWS. I often work with my nephew on projects and as we live far away it would be great to be able to send files that we could both be able to audition and edit within Cubase without having to travel to each other for the one dongle.
