Please remember, buy and use the software that YOU find comfortable to work with and not just because some star musician is using it. Many companies allow you to use a trial version for a week or upto a month. Try using these to arrive at your OWN decision.

You can run more plug-ins with lower latency inside the DAW using USB 3 compared to FireWire. Generally, USB 3.0 has 5 times the bandwidth FireWire 800, and up to 10 times that of USB-2.
FireWire Limits you to 55 stereo UAD plug-in instances at 44.1kHz and 512 minimum sample buffer. USB 3.0 does not incur this added buffer, and hundreds of plug-in instances can be run (depending on available DSP power).
There are several products that require a physical eLicenser USB key required to operate the software. For example: Cubase, Nuendo, Vienna Instrument libraries, etc. You have two options to buy such a key from – Steinberg and Vienna Instruments.
Which eLicenser key should you then buy? Well, the one that is available on our #BuildMyStudio webstore 🙂

The iLok Cloud allows iLok Cloud-enabled software to be authorized without the use of an iLok USB or a machine license.
This feature requires that the computer be continuously connected to the internet during use.
How do I close an iLok Cloud Session?
In the iLok License Manager (4.0 or greater), go to FILE -> Close Cloud Session
In most cases, there is no need to close a Cloud Session. Some users will want to close their Cloud Sessions to be able to move an activation to a physical device or computer.
Not all computer systems will have a reliable Internet connection, so moving the activation to the iLok USB hardware is an option for those users.
Opening an iLok Cloud session, will move the session to the computer you are at and will close the session in the old location.
When you close the iLok Cloud session, it will remain closed.
