Why should I update to V-Collection 4?
« on: January 11, 2015, 05:24:57 pm »
Hi,

I have to say that I'm very dissapointed of the new ASC.

And this is the reason why:

My DAW has no connection to the internet and will never have. Therefore
it is still fast and reliable. So I need offline activation mandatory.
With the old eLicenser and a second computer really no problem
to transfer the license to the USB-dongle. Just start the software,
add a new license and transfer it to the dongle. And take it
to the computer which you're working with.

OK, Arturia's ASC has an offline option too. So I tried as a test to update
the Analog Lab from my V-Collection 3 to the latest version. And I generated
the code, uploaded it as demanded. This was last year, 30th Dec. 2014.
And I have still no response. >:(
"(Offen) Offline licences file generation - Germany"

OK, then I tried the new synth in demo mode out of Lab. What can I say?
Yes they are sounding good, as expected from Arturia.

But:
-Solina V is crackling when die convolution-reverb is on. And CPU load is not the reason.
-Matrix 12 is a monster regarding CPU power consumption. Never had
such a VSTi making so much load... just comparing it to the beautiful sounding
mini V and its CPU load. No reason for beeing so hungry.
-VOX: sounds good, but I did not test further more.

Waiting more than 12 days for a license code because offline activation does not work
(it's really Off-line). What does this mean to me, if I would update all of
my V-Connection 3 and If I made an upgrade to VC 4 for the rest?

I decided to stay with VC3 and don't do an upgrade. Sorry.

Regards, m1ke

BTW: Native Instruments's offline license generation works fine for years.

Perhaps David from support could help me another time? That would be nice really. Thanks.

Finally I did the update to VC4. Artuia's synth sound very good. I like the sound.

AND: the offline activation took below 30 sec. for the respond.
Now this works as expected. :D
