License fail during concert

Hello everyone, I had a concert last weekend and during our 3rd song suddenly my keyboard stopped playing, I opened the plugin I was using for that song (Farfisa) and it was running in Demo Mode, that had happened to me before in my studio but never during a concert, I had to use my phone as a hotspot and open the Arturia Software Center for it to recognize my licenses again.
Is there a way to prevent this from happening again? Do I need to keep my laptop always connected to a wifi during concerts or something like that?

I’m using the V-Collection 8 on Ableton Live 11 Suite on a MacBook Pro from 2017
macOS Monterey
Processor 2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
16gb 2133 MHz LPDDR3

Sounds like the dreams I have, where i am playing my Drum Kit, in front of a huge crow, full of important people, - and I don’t know the song, and my kit is sliding away from me, as I play…

Hello, Arturia. This same situation happened to me last night. I was onstage during a concert and my keyboard was not playing any sound from my Arturia plugins. This is not an isolated incident that needs to be fixed once, it is systemic. Until Arturia decides to change this behavior, it will happen again to nearly everyone of your customers. Perhaps if we knew the mechanics behind the issue such as the frequency by which the licensing products are validated, or why this happens, perhaps your customers can take steps to mitigate the likelihood of such embarrassment. Professionals rely on your products to work as they should. Help us to ensure that they will.
