  • eLicenser says demo - Special Edition Vol.1

    Hello to everyone,

    I have the Special Edition Vol. 1 with an USB Viennakey with the License which is always plugged in. The eLicenser says: Vienna Symphonic Library, Demo, Verbleibende Programmstarts (program runs not used yet): 4. Below it says: Collection License; Vienna Symphonic Library

    -Vienna Instrument

    -Special Edition Vol 1

    I think I can use the extended Version 100 times, right? So perhaps I used them subconscious in Cubase 5. But when I open Vienna Instruments in Cubase 5 there are patches, matrixes and Presets. Are some of them in the extended edition?

    I made a template and opened it often and after a time there was the message: (something like:) You a demo license. program runs not used yet: 10.
    Do I have the false license to use the instruments shown in the patch list in Vienna Instruments in Cubase 5 or are these intruments the extended edition?

    I don't understand it.

    Sorry for my bad english.. If you need some more details let me now..

    Hi Chrz,

    You have registered your Special Edition Volume 1 in 2008, which means that you have installed Volume 1&2 automatically (previously called "Standard Library" & "Extended Library").

    Back in 2008, all ViennaKeys were delivered with 180 starts, which are now (after unbelievable 5 years!!!) running out. Once these demo license starts are used up, you cannot access the instruments contained in SE Volume 2 anymore.

    I have checked your key and it contains your SE Volume 1 license.

    You can purchase a permanent license for SE VOL 2 online anytime!

    Best,

    Paul

    EDIT: It goes without saying that a DEMO license is only intended to DEMO the instruments. You are of course not allowed to use any of the sounds in any commercial production (you need a permanent license to do so)!

  • Thx for your reply,

    Just to be sure: I can use the instrumeents showed here 180 times : http://www.vsl.co.at/en/211/261/2064/2069/1753.So my demo license is now dead, but if I don't have the instruments in my Cubaseproject I won't get any message of demo license, right? I have to delete all the intruments contained in the Special Edition VOl 2 but I can use Vol 1, right?

    I'm not now on the PC on which I have installed VSL. Are the instruments of the Vol. 2 in the list? Or can I sort them by Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 so that I won't be able to use them, because if I for example load a Wagner Tuba patch, there will be the message: Your demo license is times out for Special Editon Vol. 2 or something like that?

    'in any commercial production' means not for me and home, too?

    Thanks in advance and sry for all the questions..

    Hello Chrz, 

    @Another User said:

    If your music is not published, we will also have no way to know which sounds you used.

    Still, "demo" means "demo", it is a means to find out whether you want to purchase a product or not. 

    Best,

    Paul
