Arturia V-Collection License on 2 Macs
« on: July 11, 2012, 01:01:28 pm »
Hey guys, I am a happy owner of Arturia V-Collection  ;D I just have one problem. I have a mac pro which runs all the arturia synths with the usb dongle. Now i also installed all the synths on my macbook pro. Can i run the synths on my macbook without plugging the usb dongle from my mac pro? It's really annoying to share one dongle on to macs. I'm always on the run and I need to create music anywhere with my macbook, and it's so uncool to have a dongle on the laptop it's always in the way.

Hope you can help;-)

Off course you can! All you need is a second license. Even if it's a demo license....  ;)

Yep, 2 machines two licenses. How do you work on both machines at the same time in different parts of the country ?  ;)

I put all mine on my elicenser for that very reason, I can now just jump into any studio, download the software images and get into it straight away. I have all my presets exported on to a folder on my laptop, or if i go to a studio to mix, i stick them on a stick.

OK, so I have to have a dongle in my machines, and I have left it in a studio mac before now, but it works for me

If you don't want to buy a second V-Collection, because you only want to use them on this machine and maybe sometimes on a second machine, without taking the dongle with you, you can request demo licenses for all the single synths and the Laboratory.
Off course, you have to request a new demo license everytime the old one is no longer valide (Trial period ended), but you can do this when you only need them sometimes.
