I would love to not have to grab my rather expensive dongle every time I want to use my laptop. A lot of software companies have gone to a model that lets the user authorize 2 computers, no dongle. I know it’s a pipe dream, but it would be so great is Steinberg added this option.
You are correct.
…and I prefer the dongle, pain though it can be. I have software from Adobe that is tied to two computers and I just wish it could be three…with Cubase and the dongle it is!
Pluses and minuses with both.
Very true. It’s obvious why Steinberg want to stay with the dongle system -because it means their software doesn’t get cracked. As a user this is sometimes annoying but the upside is that Steinberg get more revenue to develop the software.
