Steinberg Key USB-eLicenser License Control Device

Unlock the power of Steinberg software with this USB copy protection key. The USB-eLicenser dongle allows for access to select Steinberg apps and plug-ins.

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

The 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 USB-eLicenser. Licenses can also be transferred between 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.

USB-eLicenser is INCLUDED with the full versions of the following products:
- Cubase Pro
- Cubase Artist
- Nuendo
- WaveLab (full version)

NOTE: USB-eLicenser is not required for WaveLab Elements.

USB-eLicenser is NOT included with the following products:
- HALion 4
- HALion Sonic
- The Grand 3
- Nuendo Live
- Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection
- Rupert Neve Portico Plug-ins
- Groove Agent
