    The USB-eLicenser (formerly 'Steinberg Key') is a copy protection unit (sometimes called a '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 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 is already present on the system.
    The USB-eLicenser is actually a tiny computer which stores licenses for Steinberg products, and is connected to a USB port on your computer. All current Steinberg products that use a copy protection device use exactly the same system. The Steinberg copy protection system allows the storage of several licenses on the same USB-eLicenser. Licenses can also be transferred between USB-eLicensers with certain limitations.

    We recommend that you check the manufacturers website to check compatibility of this product with your particular system as software cannot be refunded if unsealed. You can also contact our sales team for information.

The Steinberg ELicenser key worked exactly as intended. No problem setting it up. It turned out that I needn't have bought it though as my Steinberg Cubase Pro 8.5 came with an ELincersor key in the box.

Totally dreadful design. This is my FOURTH eLicensor in as many years. I do not know how Steinberg expect professional musicians/studios to put up with this cheap plastic trash? I am sending my old broken model back to them with yet another letter of dissatisfaction. I hope Steinberg get to read this... Read More.

Does what it needs to do. The licenser software is simple but easy, and doesn't charge for moving licenses around.
