USB copy protection key for Steinberg software licenses and compatible products
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 isn´t already present on the system. An eLicenser can store many licenses.

* Oktober 2017: This applies only for the full boxed version of the product, as updates and downloads do not contain a Steinberg eLicenser in general.
The Dongle does not include any software license!
The system requirements can be found in the product description or on the manufacturer's website.
Steinberg products require you to register with the manufacturer at www.steinberg.net to activate your license.
