Yes, there’ s going to be a need for a bit of de-/re-authorisation process for you BUT only has to happen once a month, for a particular machine, not every visit. My belief it that we will get at least two activations per license this time., so you’ll be using one of those for the non-internet machine(s)
The upshot is, as with any machine running C12, the new system gives you 30 days of use before it’ll need a call home to verify continued activation. Internet connected machines, will be all good; you won’t ever notice this happen, no interruptions, no loss of (Cubase) life. Non-internet machines, see above.
It doesn’t matter when you do the re-activation, you’ll always get 30 days use from that point on…
In some ways its as you were before - but this time taking along an occasional extra ‘dongle’ with you for C12 only…
And just to cover myself, none of this is gospel; nothing official here - I’ve just expanded on info taken from other forum posts.!
