NOTE: There is an exception to this: the Synchro Arts VocAlign plug-in. However. a password will only enable a Soundscape application or Soundscape format plug-in if the Soundscape hardware unit with the corresponding DSP serial number is detected. The basics The Soundscape Editor and Soundscape Mixer applications and Soundscape format plug-ins are protected against piracy by a password system that relies on the DSPs embedded in the Soundscape hardware. the corresponding software module (application or plug-in) will be enabled for all the hardware units that are operated from the same instance of the Soundscape Editor or Soundscape Mixer software. the plug-ins purchased for either unit can only be enabled for that particular unit. each plug-in purchased for either unit will be enabled for both units. if you choose to run these two units separately as two 32-track systems with two instances of the Soundscape Editor running at the same time. this plug-in will be enabled for all three cards because they will be controlled from a single instance of the Soundscape Mixer software (only a single instance of the Soundscape Mixer can run at any one time because it will automatically take control of all the cards on startup).
