Overview

The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is a copy-protection unit (sometimes called "dongle") which is needed to use Steinberg's software range. The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is required to run Steinberg VST instruments, but is not included in all the product boxes and must be purchased separately if no Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is already present on the system.

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 5
Cubase Studio 5
Cubase Essential 4
Nuendo 4
WaveLab 6
WaveLab Studio 6

The Steinberg Key (USB-eLicenser) is not included with the following products:
HALion 3
HALion Player
HALion Symphonic Orchestra
The Grand 3

Works Like a Charm

By Will Stanley

from Enon Valley, PA

Comments about Steinberg License Key:

If you need a new key, this will do the job wonderfully! These things are pretty impossible to break by normal wear and tear, but if you do find yourself in need of a new steinberg key, pick one of these up without hesitation! Licenses are fairly easy to transfer, and steinberg actually has pretty good customer service.

      Excellent product with some degree of rigaramole

      Comments about Steinberg License Key:

      I lost my security key (dongle). No problem- Steinberg gave me 24 studio hours to use, so I had zero downtime while my lost security key got replaced. The directions were clear to follow. Click the big green button, paste in the code they email you, and you are up and running again.

      I will say that it is nerve racking to lose the security key because it IS the value of the software. I sort of wish they had sent me a few more reassuring messages. I did not like having to sign a statement and submit it to Steinberg to verify that the old security key got lost, but to their credit they were prompt. I submitted it Friday night and they sent me new codes Monday morning (a Holiday) at 2:30 am. Perhaps it was from Germany, where they don't celebrate Memorial Day? Anyway if I ever take out my security key again, I will attach it to something too big to lose like a dream catcher or a necklace. I understand that Steinberg have the right to protect their inventions but the rigaramole was a little annoying.
