Finally getting my pro license; and had to suck it regarding Steinberg fetish for dongles (got enough plugins and other software that cost me more than 12K, all without a dongle so the fact that only Cubase force me to have a physical one is really puzzling), but the good thing is that I can finally compare with my other DAWs now, with the full featured version of Cubase.
Now the problem is: with my other software I can install it on as many computer I own (3), as long as I don’t run the software at the same time (with other non-DAW I can even run it concurrently on up to 3 computers, but that’s another story). This is great, but from what I can tell, Cubase is not taking this lightly, and ask you to remove the license from the previous computer, before you can run it on your other computer. I guess dealing with users running the app, then disconnect from internet and try to run it on another computer is too hard to do and too much of a technical challenge that other companies solved brilliantly.
So I am looking at alternatives and thought that maybe I can run different versions on my computers (since I got 9 for free, upgraded to 9 elements and then upgraded to 10 elements and finally to 10 pro). Of course I won’t run them concurrently, since I have 2 hands and a pair of eyes, and I am not that gifted to use 2 computers at the same time while playing music, so I was wondering if that would work; or if I have to switch licenses by removing it from one place and enable it on the other computer, even if I use different versions.
The objective here is to have my mac laptop use Cubase, for work required on the road, while I have my main desktop win machine set up as main, for when I am at my desk. I heard people buying an extra license, which to me seems excessive, since I am not using the app concurrently; so the 1 license per seat does not apply to my case. Thanks
