Yellow Tools have recently posted a statement on their website that all of their products will now include a USB \"authorisation key\" ie dongle that must be plugged in both at the authorizaion stage and when operating the product in order to have it work.
I emailed them earlier to express my concern about their products being self-contained rather than allowing access to the samples. They replied that they WILL NOT be releasing a GIGA/Halion/EXS/Kontakt version and prefered their \"custom\" (read locked) MVI engine.
Now they have also included a new dongle copy-protection scheme, this is BAD news!!!
