I am a Cubase user on Mac. (Latest Cubase Pro 10, OSX 10.14.4)
For quite some time i have had weird issues with my first gen. E-Licenser dongle and Cubase.
- Dongle often not seen in Cubase (didn’t matter if the dongle was directly connected to my macbook or via powered USB Hub),
so Cubase didn’t want to open.
- Often all kinds of error messages in Cubase which were dongle related.
These 2 issues seemed to become more and more happening for me, driving me nuts, cause i couldn’t use Cubase because of these issues.
A friend of mine, als using Cubase on Mac, advised me to buy the newest gen. USB E-licenser Dongle.
So i did.
I transferred all my licenses from old to new dongle, via the E-licenser Control Center software, including ofcourse the Cubase Pro 10 license.
(sidenote: awful workflow if you have many licenses, cause you have to transfer the licenses ony by one, you can’t select them all).
And whatta you know:
- The described 2 issues are completely gone.
- Cubase often hanged or crashed on closing but now Cubase shuts down properly every time, no hang on exit or crash on exit.
Now, i don’t know if this last point has to do with the new dongle but it is surely a coincedence.
Just wanted to share this.
