@Ben Since VSL is planning to stop selling Vienna keys and the protection plan, thus leaving those of us with VEP 5/6 licenses unprotected against key failure- is there going to be any special upgrade pricing so we don’t have to worry about losing our licenses?

Don't worry, make sure you are subscribed to the newsletter or follow my announcements here on VI-Control, so you don't miss any future sale! ;)

So essentially no path to protection for existing customers: those licenses go poof when the hardware key eventually dies. Got it.

When will VSL start with the iLok sytem ? I am considering to buy one or two of their Pianos but I intend to wait for this iLok step (and likely for a sales as well).
this Sunday begins the first step from what I understand.

from this and the VSL thread:

VIENNA PROTECTION PLAN

Starting August 1st
, the Vienna Protection Plan will be reduced to a run-time of 1 year.
New price: €30

Also, the day we’re making the iLok License Management platform available for all of our users:

  • We will stop selling Vienna Protection Plans.
  • We will stop selling ViennaKeys.
YOUR TRANSITION to iLOK

As soon as you have registered your iLok account with us (we will let you know when this is possible):

in case this hasn't been posted - good info for me being away from this stuff for a while.

i've experienced issues with iLok Cloud - so, i will probably stick with a key and ZDT/TLC.

$30/year: reasonable, i think.

this is all new to me, sorry if it's a repeat for most here.

I'm fine with using a key, as long as there is an insurance covering any accidental damage, loss or steal. It sits there everytime, and you can move it without any fear.

What is the situation with owners of VSL products and transfer of licences with a sale to another person? Will Transfer within iLock be as per normal with the fee of $25US?

Forgive me if this has already been asked, but the only options are a physical key or the cloud, correct? No licensing to the computer?

I am so excited to move to iLok. I have been trying upgrade my Synchron Brass license for the last 6 hours. Just to confirm the eLic servers down?

I don't mind the dongle but this other shit really pisses me off. It's happened a few times for me. Once is an anomaly...

I think this is 2nd large outage for eLicenser in recent times? Sounds like it will be a few hours or more to get things working again.

Same here. I cannot activate the Cubase 11 update. Steinberg is in maintenance mode and I hope everything will work again tomorrow.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
