Hi,

VEP 7 uses the eLicenser copy protection system.

If you don't plan to run any instances of VEP on your master computer, you only need one license.
You have to install VEP on both computers, but the connector plugin in the DAW does not require a license.

If needed, you can buy additional VEP licenses at a reduced price.

Best, Ben

Thanks. 

So, I do NOT need to run VEP on the master computer, and the plugin is all that's needed there?

OK, so is there an advantage to also running it on the master computer?

Thanks.

By the way I looked all over for that important tidbit of info. Thanks.

Hi lahatte, 

This info is right on the product page when you scroll down: 

* You need one Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 license per computer. For example, if you have two computers, one master and one slave, you need just one license if you’re running one or more instances of Vienna Ensemble Pro 7 on your slave computer only. If you’re running one or more instances of Vienna Ensemble Pro on both your master and slave machines, you need two licenses. Also, each computer requires one ViennaKey for authorization.

Best, 
Paul

The part I didn't get was that I don't need VEP running on the master, but only a plugin.

I think I've got it now. :)

No news there, and it happens on none of our computers... Which OS are you working on, which version?

I have to say that I am very disapointed about the new licencing. I don't know how it was to obtain additional licences in the past, but I had been expecting to buy the three license bundle. Now it is going to cost me over $100 more for the same number of licenses.

Its all done to collect more cash from us users. That's the way the big companies operate today.
VSL know we need more than one license, so its an easy catch. The earlier genorosity is long gone. Sad.

I upgraded my 3 license bundle for VE6 less than 1 year ago.

Most other companies give you a free upgrade in those situations.

Now VSL want even more money than back then. And what do I get back ? One license ! LOL

(Yes I know the second and third license are a tad cheaper ...)

Wonder if they come up with any 'specials' during Black Friday ... 

 

Still ... best to all  ;)

 100% True!!   Actual Black Friday deals are also not the "yellow of the egg"  full upgrade incl. 3 licences to VEP7 now (black friday deals) for 155eur instead of 85eur (from VEP5 to VEP6).    SCAM...    they should give an additional extra rebate on black friday 29.11.19 eg 125 or 135 for 3licenses upgrade. that would make me happy.

Hi Paul,

I believe you can understand that many of us got some thoughts on your new license system.

When you change the policy like you have done, there will naturally affect users.

But it's not only you guys that change the upgrade policy these days. AVID is another example. And these changes affect different users in different ways, and naturally there might be a lot of emotions involved.

Now ... As you can see from my previous post, I got 3 licenses last time I upgraded. This year I got one. For sure, it affects me finacially, and this time that was not too convenient ... ;)

Anyway, I upgraded yesterday. Hopefully I will find out if I need one or two extra licenses in my setup before the BF discounts go away.

I am now looking forward to check out version 7.

All the best,
Gemylon

I found the best prices at Thomann.de. Now those discount prices are something I can support.
