If you refresh your licences on the 1st of Nov, you lose your dongle on the 2nd Nov, ZDT licences are issued on 3rd Nov which last until the 17th Nov. For the 90 days to lapse until the licences on the lost/stolen dongle are void and thus can be activated on your new dongle, you will have to wait until at least 1st of February. 


I would very much like to hear some scores or pieces of music that were recorded at SSV.

If anyone could post some links or WAVs I would really appreciate it. 

'Insurance' suggests that the licences will be replaced. This is not insurance. iLok requires that we submit an RMA request that will cost $49.95 USD plus shipping, outside of the 2 year warranty. Then they assess the broken iLok to determine whether the licences can be recovered and if not, we need to then contact VSL and tell them. If our iLok is lost/stolen then just skip straight to the last step. That's when VSL tell us that we need to pay 50% of the original price of the licences.

What we get for $30 USD is temporary 2 week licences while we freak out about having to pay VSL thousands of euros AGAIN. 

So the real insurance is the TLC which is just licences that expire every 90 days. which would still potentially leave us without the ability to use our products for 75 days. And why should that cost us $30 USD a year?.

iLok gives us expiring licences (TLC) that we must renew every 90 days. But they only offer this service if you are subscribed to ZDT for $30 USD a year.

They could give us TLC for free. It requires zero personnel and costs them nothing. Nice one iLok!

I'm Pretty sure that iLok will check the licence/connection every 3 or so minutes.

I really like VSL as a company BUT this whole machine licencing thing is sort of baffling to me. I understand that there is not going to be machine licencing. But I would like to know WHY there isn't going to be machine licencing. I personally, was under the impression that machine licencing was as secure as cloud/dongle licencing no?.

So why provide the link?.

64 bit audio engines were cutting edge too (on paper) though they had zero audible benefit.

Sorry but what does 'raising' mean? Is this an improvement to an algorithm or a signal path or...???

I just ask because before I spend another 1000 euros on a program I would like to know a bit more about it.

Otherwise I will download the trial and be like 'oh yeah, that sounds way better' even though the human ear might not be capable of discerning the difference between 1st and 7th order let alone 1st and 3rd order.

I assume there are audio examples of results from experiments by IEM. Any chance of we could hear such results?. I searched the link you provided but came up with nought.
