Almost forgot about this one . . . probably find an "Originals" that sounds interesting . . .
Enjoying this purchase!
Does anyone know if it is possible to assign the virtual knobs on the vst to the 16 physical knobs on the Arturia Mini-Lab? Some sort of template that can be loaded somehow? 🤔

Pricey for a synth rompler upgrade.
I'd go for that Image Line bundle instead.

Let us suppose, hypothetically of course, someone purchased HOOPUS recently, but did not activate/install/etc. The serial number is just sitting in the email.
Could the purchaser "reject" the terms of the EULA, and then request a refund of this purchase from the TPR seller?
If so, after receiving a refund, just maybe the original purchaser could reconsider that the EULA could be acceptable to them, and thus purchase HOOPUS/FP/SM bundles at an $80 savings.
Asking for . . . um, a friend . . .
I almost exclusively hang-out in the Deals sub-forum, so this thread seems the closest to what I want to ask. If improper, please disregard and kindly advise proper forum.
So, apologies in advance for necro'ing and continuing the slightly ot discussion of iLok options.
I am a hobbyist, so whenever I have the option, I choose a Cloud activation. I don't care if I lose access to plug-ins for an hour, day or week, so long as I still own them and eventually will have access to them without having to repurchase.
When the choice is between only Machine or USB, I don't know which is "better," as both are susceptible to theft, malfunction and physical damage. And, potentially the need to repurchase some plug-ins.
The question I have is: Can I use (repeatedly) the activate/deactivate function of the Machine activation to "simulate" a Cloud activation?
Can I select Machine activation, use the plug-in, when done using the plug-in, deactivate the plug-in so the activation count in the online iLok Manager shows zero activations currently being utilized. And then the next time I need that specific plug-in, then activate it (again) to Machine, and when done deactivate (again) the plug-in so the activation count in the online iLok Manager shows zero activations currently being utilized.
Rinse and repeat.
Or, is there some type of iLok (universal) or publisher (plug-in specific) limit to the number of times I would be able to repeatedly activate/deactivate the license to Machine from the online iLok Manager?
Really wish all publishers using iLok would offer a Cloud activation option, but when that is not a choice, would what I am thinking be a realistic possibility to get around this limitation?
Hmmmm . . . spent $250 on HOOPUS during recent sale . . . would be nice to see FP & SM for ~ $170 . . . just sayin' . . .

You can bring it down to 35 with jampoints. Valid 'till Feb 8.
New to all things IK-M.
Does one earn JamPoints only when purchasing directly from IK-M?
Or, can one purchase TS3.5M from a TPR, and when registering with IK-M, also receive JamPoints?
TS3.5M would earn approx how many JamPoints?
Thanks in advance,
Annoyed that JRR discount codes still don't work, but did make purchase for Xils vst numbers 6 & 7 for this sale: PolyKB III & XILS 4 Analog Matrix Modular Synth Plugin.

and you have to spend quite a bit to hit $50 anyway.
Your $25 voucher will require a minimum order of just $32. This means that your net (!) shopping cart subtotal has to be $32 or more before you can successfully apply the voucher."
$400 worth of vienna vouchers for ($300 - $40) $260 ?
repeatable? three times, $1200 for $780?
Yeah, was looking to see if any combination of TT stuff made sense, given Thomanns' existing pricing . . .
EDIT --> Any product available for $1.54 ?

Note: none of these SanDisks are the Pro version which can be twice as fast (up to 2000MB/sec. data transfer speed)
Well, yes, but . . .Quote
For those looking at this product for the 2000MB/s (or 16Gbps) to use with their Mac thunderbolts, be warned that many people see a maximum speed that is less than 1000MB/s read and write when they connect it to their Mac computers using Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) port. Technically, the Thunderbolt port can handle 40Gb/s, so that is not the bottleneck.
This portable SSD doesn't use Thunderbolt technology natively. Instead, it uses a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface that is capable of up to 20Gbps of transfer speed using dual-lane USB 3.2 Gen 2X2, essentially using both lanes of USB-C connectors to deliver speeds up to 20Gbps (or 2.5GB/s). However, there are not a lot of motherboards PC (desktop/laptop) that have a USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 interface. As of this date, no Mac products support the new USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 standard. So it will run only at the USB-C speed depending on which generation it is.
For example, the Thunderbolt (USB-C) port on the iMac Pro is compatible with USB 3.1 or 3.2 Gen 2, which is one lane at 10Gbps (or ~1000MBps). So if you have an Apple/Mac machine, this will not work at its fullest speed.
Most people will only have a USB-A (USB 3.0 maximum speed 5 Gbits/s), so if you plug it into one of those ports you will see a speed of only around 450 MB/s.
So, unless you have the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2×2 on your computer, you will see never see speeds exceeding 1000 MB/s.

now to see if there is an SDX "big brother" of this EZX . . .
Yeah, no tax for me at DLsite/Eclipsed . . . but the "random" tax at Dreamtonics is (one reason) why I am avoiding them and hoping someone else will sell the license keys for Wiena

The first serial is the one to use. I have no idea what the other two are.
Just noticed this on the DLsite product page for Kevin:Quote
Serial Number (Product ID)
After completing your purchase, you will be issued the following numbers on the download page:
・Serial Number 1: Activation Code
・Serial Number 2: Support ID）
・Serial Number 3: CharaMin Studio License Key）
Serial Number 1 is the code needed to use Synthesizer V AI Kevin.
After installing and launching the program, you will be prompted to enter this code before use.
Serial Number 2 is the code needed to receive product support from AH-Software.
Serial Number 3 is the license key needed to activate the 90-day trial version of CharaMin Studio.
Upon launching CharaMin Studio, you'll be prompted to enter this number along with your registered CharaMin Studio acocunt information.
*In order to create an account, please make sure you have a valid email address.
When it updates to 1.8.0b1 do we get a free voice bank, AI Mai? Or is that only for those who purchase directly from Dreamtonics?
Is it possible to store the Voicebanks on an external (ssd) drive, or does it all go to c : \
Ok, think I got it to work at DLsite. Was initially declined. My bank's fraud dept sent an automated message. I indicated that I did authorize the (declined) charge. Decided to try again because, what the hay. Very (pleasantly) surprised that the charge was then accepted! 🙂
Think about $85 for Studio Pro + Kevin !!!
Downloaded (zip files), but have not yet tried to install.
@pseudopop I see that there are 3 (?!) serial numbers for each Studio Pro and Kevin? Any other install tips?
