USB eLicence help

Post by Paulwoolleymusic » Sun Oct 15, 2017 4:09 pm


I usually just use my dedicated music pc for Cubase - my USB eLicence dongle attached.

However, today I downloaded Cubase onto my Macbook as there are occasions when I need to work on the go.

Is it possible to purchase a second USB eLicence dongle for use with my Macbook, so that I don't have to keep swapping licence from one machine to the other? I am worried the original licence will get lost or broken...

I can see I can get a dongle for £18.00, but I am not sure I will be able to use it as my version of Cubase is already affiliated with a dongle...

Cubase Elements doesn't require the dongle and may be good enough for basic drafts. You can then open your projects in Cubase Pro and finish them while you're at home/studio.
Every time someone says "it must be easy to add/fix", a programmer dies.

Cubase Pro and Wavelab Pro (latest), Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, MSI Z87-G45 GAMING, i5 4690k, GeForce GTX 760, almost every Steinberg plugin and expansion, Trilian, Komplete 10, etc etc etc etc
