Ok thanks. I recently read that late last night. That if you have a spare e-licenser, they can create a temporary/24hr like license for that while you go through a confirmation process for another permanent license.
I like the idea of being able to have Cubase on multiple computers and simply using a key to unlock/use it. However it’s just nerve-racking to having all of the investment in one small USB device. Especially if you like to travel.
I’ll likely buy another dongle for that purpose. However if you travel and have two on you (one active and one backup), you can still lose both. If you have your active one on you and backup at home, you have to wait until you’re back home to go through the reactivation process. If you have the active one at home and the backup on you, it doesn’t matter because you can’t use the backup anyway.
I kind of like the Adobe method of being allowed to utilize one license on two computers (they way they describe it is one desktop and one laptop) considering people work in and out of office. However I think that maybe you do some sort of internet/online “check in” to activate the dongle that you currently have on you. So if I am at home, I just tell the e-licenser to utilize the dongle that’s in my USB hub at home. When I am away with my secondary dongle, I connect to some sort of wifi/data and tell it to activate the dongle I have on the road which deactivates the dongle at home. So only one can be active at a time
Either way, I’m just dealing with it like anybody else here! I am sure the big film composers have a separate license for every computer/studio they own around the world. If I made any money off of this, I’d probably buy a second license myself for mobile use while the other sits non-disrupted at home.
