Dear members, I’d really appreciate some help with this.
Since I upgraded to Cubase 8 Pro, I have TWO identical items listed as “Cubase Pro 8” in “Software” section in “My products” @ Steinberg.
I perform maintanance task on regular basis, and I’m not sure if I have to do anything about this.I have another dongle with the license for Cubase Elements 7 which I purchased before I came across full Cubase 7.5 boxed.
I also have Steinberg UR44 audio interface I really like very much. Now, being that I initially started with Cubase Elements 7, I didn’t enter any access code to download Cubase AI (or whatever version).
I have the paper (which I got with my card) with the activation code for Basic FX Suite. Now, I’m not quite sure if I need that basic FX Suite now that I have full version of Cubase. I was told it was incorporated in Cubase, but still I don’t have a clear picture about all this. Does anything related to UR44 needs a dongle??? Sorry for a dumb question, I read UR44 can be used with any DAW, and I need to make sure I get the right picture, because, I’m about to sell my “old” dongle w\Cubase Elements 7. I’d like to use my dongle with the license for Cubase 8 Pro and put my new licenses (Halion5,etc…) on it. Also, I’d like to be able to use my UR44 on any machine w\o a dongle, in case I need to work with someone who doesn’t use any of Steinberg products. Once again, sorry for a dumb question (UR44 + dongle) but it’s a dumb for a reason, as @ the shop where I purchased UR44 they didn’t know the definite answer to that FX Suite part… BTW, so far I’ve been using UR44 w\o any problems and w\o zero latency monitoring, which (I presume) would require the software which came with UR44.I hope I didn’t sound too confusing about all this…
So, people, HOW to keep my dongle + license(s) in order ???
Thank you for your time.
