I posted this very same question, but in the wrong place… so, here I go again, sorry for that:
Sorry to re-install the question, but I am starting to get serious deals with recording. I mean, I am starting to get paid for what started as a hobby. My first Cubase was the Win version of the MIDI Sequencer. Since December I have a full Cubase 5 license, and I am now planning to upgrade to Cubase 6. I have it installed on my main PC, as well as in my Mac laptop, because 50% of my recordings are made in remote locations. But I have to move the USB eLicenser every time. I asked the local representative about what would happen if I just lost the USB or if it just broke one day, and the answer was “you will have to purchase a new license, period”. I asked to have a back-up USB and the answer was “this is not possible”.
The SW and the USB in conjunction are very capable of keeping track of what license I am using in what computer at every moment. So, why can’t I have a back-up USB with me in such case? Should I make my customers wait until Steinberg “at their discretion” resolve the issue?
Is this the way other DAW developers works? Is there an alternative I should know?
Thanks and regards,
