FAQs about software

Share this article

This is a very commonly asked and valid question by most software buyers.

Every software company has its own policy of allowing users to install their wares on one or more computers. So it is always safe to check either with Sudeep Audio product description or the FAQs page on the manufacturer site to know the answer.

However, to help you save time in doing all this research, the general rule of thumb is followed by most as under:
1. A serial / challenge based product can be installed on 2 machines under the same user id.

2. If  product uses a physical USB key for licenses (say iLok or eLicenser), then the product license remains on it. So you can install your software on as many computers you want to. But it will work only on that machine in which a valid license dongle is connected.

3. Some companies give you an option to use the Serial / Challenge unlock method OR use an iLok. So it is upto you on what method you want to opt for at the time of product registration itself.

4, Some products do allow more than 2 installations or in some cases, don’t ask you to get a challenge code. But then their license terms state that the user has to be the same person. This is done in pure good faith by such companies, hoping that the liberty given will not be misused.

 

What if i format my computer?

Though it is rare for Macs to be formatted now and then, even a PC with original Windows OS does not require frequent formatting. However, it is surely possible you may need to do it.

In such cases, inform the plugin or DAW company that you’re doing it BEFORE actually doing it. So at their end, they will delete the computer ID number associated to your account. And once you start afresh, you will be given a new activation code by them.

Frequent or constant requests like “hey i formatted my PC again” will surely raise flags. And then it is upto the software company to issue a new license or not.

 

What is iLok Cloud?

The iLok Cloud allows iLok Cloud-enabled software to be authorized by any compatible license located in the user’s iLok Account (no need for a physical iLok USB or machine-licensing). This feature requires that the computer is continuously connected to the internet during use. So if you want to avoid being constantly connected to the Net, use the physical iLok instead.

As an original software buyer, we salute you for supporting the developers and dealers who bring such amazing tools to you. However, it is highly recommended that you sign up for the “insurance” plans for the physical USB keys that carry your licenses – eLicenser and iLok.

Note: These plans are sold directly by the companies and not by any dealer in the world.

What is a dynamic microphone?

  • Used for: loud sounds, live instruments/ amps, drums
  • Pros: cheap, durable, doesn’t need a power source
  • Cons: not very sensitive to quiet or high-frequency sounds

What is a condenser microphone?

  • Used for: quieter more complex sounds with a greater range of frequencies
  • Pros: sensitive, accurate
  • Cons: more expensive, more delicate, don’t deal well with very loud sounds

What is PHANTOM POWER?

No, phantom power isn’t some kind of mysterious force produced by ghosts floating around in your home studio nor is it “the ghost who walks”. It simply refers to the tiny amount of power needed to make the diaphragm move. Most Condensor mics require Phantom Power and your audio interface would have a switch for turning this ON after connecting the mic to it.

 

What are Ribbon microphones?

A ribbon microphone shares more similarities with a dynamic microphone. It differs in the fact that is has a thin ribbon (hence the name) of aluminum, rather than plastic as the diaphragm.

They are expensive and are extremely fragile. Even a light breeze could break one. So handle them with utmost care.
