Hi - I know some plug-ins and other things tee off on the computer ID for authorization. I’m going to be doing some traveling, and for hotel internet privacy am looking at setting up one of the VPNs. As far as I know (which is very little here, and may be incorrect) VPN’s assign a new IP address, but don’t do anything in terms of affecting other ways to identify a computer (like MOBO identification, etc.).
I was wondering, would that get in the way of using the DAW, maybe something like Waves, or Cubase, or something else?
Seems very unlikely that they would…and FWIW, I travel a lot with my Laptop using different IP addresses without issue. For that matter, many (most?) domestic IP addresses are dynamic so change all the time.
It’s basically only the physical adapter(s) that can create issues with real time audio performance. If you don’t have any under normal circumstances this ‘virtual’ VPN adapter won’t create any. I also use a VPN service sometimes and never encountered any issues.
Its the same from me. The most common is fb or sometimes even gmail, its quite bothersome. But for DAW, I have never experienced any changes, I use that one but considering to replace it soon. Maybe it also differs from the vpn? I have heard that when you watch netflix, then the streaming service has blocked some common private network IPs, does anybody knows if there is something similar with DAWs?
