I am a long-time user of Cubase (a much older version), and after building a new PC a week ago I need to now restore the software. It’s a good opportunity for me to upgrade, so I’m looking at buying " Cubase Artist 11".
…but then there’s the issue of an elicense. I have never owned, nor needed one. I’ve always used an old version that apparently predates this necessity. I have looked around and found only very old information regarding this, so let’s cut to it:
Is it possible to use Cubase 11 without a USB elicense?
I get the impression it is required, which is very disappointing. Is there any solution that doesn’t require a physical prop that I don’t have and can’t get anytime soon? I don’t really want to wait for something physical to arrive to let me use software I could have downloaded and installed within minutes.
