  3. 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?

    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,

  6. 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. 


    "Minimum Spend

    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."


  8. Yeah, was looking to see if any combination of TT stuff made sense, given Thomanns' existing pricing . . .


    EDIT --> Any product available for $1.54 ?

    Pro Tools Support Renewal EDU $ 97.46

    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 . . .


    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.

    The first serial is the one to use. I have no idea what the other two are. :D



    Just noticed this on the DLsite product page for Kevin:


    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.

  11. 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?
