Steinberg License Keytrue true
Unlock Steinberg's software range with this special dongle.
The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is actually a tiny computer which stores licenses for Steinberg products, and is connected to a USB port on your computer. All current Steinberg products that use a copy-protection device use exactly the same system. The Steinberg copy protection system allows the storage of several licenses on the same Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser). Licenses can also be transferred between Steinberg Keys (USB-eLicensers) with certain limitations. This can be very useful, for example in the unlikely event of a Steinberg customer wishing to sell a product.
The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is included with the following products (all sold separately)*:
Cubase Studio 5
Cubase Essential 4
WaveLab Studio 6
The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is not included with the following products:
