USB copy protection key for Steinberg software

The Steinberg Key is the key to Steinberg's world of professional audio software. The Steinberg Key is required for all current Steinberg VST instruments that are not supplied with their own copy protection plug. Users who already have a Steinberg software with copy protection plug do not need an additional Steinberg Key. The Steinberg Key also allows the use of demo versions of other Steinberg software that are included with each Steinberg product. The demo versions allow you to try out Steinberg's leading applications and instruments in a hands-on way.

  • All Steinberg products require only one dongle
  • Price advantage due to omission of the additional dongle for VST instruments
  • Easy access to fully featured demo versions of Steinberg's most important applications
available since March 2005

A nice improvement over the old model
Anonymous 18.11.2016
The presentation picture is an older version of eLicenser key. This new version is quite small - it's pretty much, I would say, 33% the metallic part that gets into the USB slot and 66% the plastic key itself.

This is my first key, it's been a year and no problems with it whatsoever. I read lots of complains about old keys being broken, but I think this current design is really hard to break by accident.

Some people may complain about these keys taking up ports on their laptops so I found a working solution: I only have two ports on my laptop and they are not enough anyway. So I purchased a 4-port slim USB-powered USB hub and with a self-adhesive velcro tape I fixed it on my macbook's back of the screen (lid). The soft side is on the laptop so whenever I pack it it will not hold onto any stuff that gets in contact with, and the "sticky velcro side" goes to the usb hub which goes into an accessories bag when on the move. This way I have 4 ports available for eLicenser key, other keys and a portable hard drive. The second free port on the laptop is for quickly getting memory sticks in/out.

Useful purchase

Cubase with an old (2007) elicenser started and shut down for a long time. After restarting the computer, the licensing software did not recognize the device from time to time. The new one works quickly and flawlessly.

Does exactly what you would expect
xmi_std 22.03.2021
Very well made. No moving parts. Usb tip is not sticking out stronge (like ilok v3) so potentialldamage is not expected.

Very small footprint but feels dense in hand giving it a solid feel.

From time to time you need to synchronize it with Steinberg servers in order for everything to work fluently.

Overall this copy protection is working fine for Cubase. You plug it in and forget about it.
