I wonder about the iLok technology.
Is it like the eLicenser Arturia is using where you can either use a dongle (for multiple machines) or software only if you only use one machine.
Personally, I have made good experiences with the ilok, never had a problem with it - in fact, I currently use three, one ilok 2 for Waves Mercury and SSL, two of the older iloks for various other licences
This sounds exactly like the situation I'm trying to avoid . having a lot of usb-dongles. Since I'm on a lap top and need my usb:s to other things I really want to avoid having to use hubs. I used to have some dongles (Korg and Logic) and it was a relief when they weren't needed anymore. Don't want to go there again.
I'm amazed you need three different iLoks. Why can't you use the same iLok-dongle for all of them?
I thought that was one of the main arguments for iLok. The possibility to gather all licenses in one place.
I remember Waves making the same recommendation to keep their auths separate but I've never had any issues (I don't remember seeing that warning with the v8 install-is it still in effect?).
This Vintage Style De-Esser is fantastic:
You can Demo it. It's about $80 from a Nomad factory dealership : )
That would create a broadband deesser (the whole frequency spectrum of the track would be attenuated). A true deesser only attenuated the range of the sibilance. Not that it's bad, just different.
