    OT : Protection USB Keys ... how many ?

    How many USB Key do you have ?

    Here, 4 on three computers :

    Vienna VI x 2
    Tascam GVI x 1
    Broadway Big Band x 1

    I don't know if we can reach a max per computer

    Well, you can't go over 128 USB devices per system, so I hope there's some unity that develops amongst the guys who protect their products with dongles. Imagine if every product was protected that way.

    I think past 10 keys, the back of the computer with all sorts of hubs might start to look a little rediculous.

    A single iLok can hold 100 licenses; a single Syncrosoft USB Key can hold 99 licenses.

    It appears most developers are using one of these two systems for dongle protection.

    I personally have just one Syncrosoft dongle that currently holds 6 different product licenses.

    Since you mentioned it, I'd thought to mention that you can't delete old licenses from iLok. So everytime you update your logic, for example, you are wasting 1/100 license/ Not even demos, or whatever else...

    Just a point.

    I have 1 only (Cubase, Steinberg), and I am thinking if I need any more tbh...

    I have 2. One for Cubase, and the other for VSL. So right now it's not so bad, but I'm already afraid that I won't be able to escape from having a HUB someday. Generally, the idea of having to have 3-4 or even more keys and is not somethink that I like...

    I have two. Cubase SX3 and Korg Digital Ed. Killed them both by eletrocution. Its a real struggle to get them replaced. Luckily i havent had the licensed transfered to just one key because i had to send in the damaged ones in order to get the licence replaced. Used them both on a hub hidden behind my usb controller
