    I have bought and downloaded the Soundtoys Native bundle, purchased an ilok, downloaded the authorization, installed the bundle and, upon request, have authorized the plug-ins. Job done. It works! Only problem is that every time I load a project which utilizes a soundtoys plug-in, the 'PACE' announcement pops up and asks me to authorize, again, with my ilok. It does this EVERYTIME!!!!! I cannot use the soundtoys stuff now, without having to stick my ilok in! Something is wrong. I emailed Soundtoys who told me to re-install the version that I just installed. Same problem!
    Few more things: I had a trial version which i installed by dropping it into my 'components'. I trashed this before installing the purchased version. Did I do it properly and is this causing the problem?

    Upon re-installing (2nd time) the latest version I thought I would need to 'trash' the old one (again) but could not find it in 'components'. Where will the Soundtoys plugins be held?

    Please help! I just don't want to have to keep sticking my ilok in everytime.

    That is expected. Any Plugins which use iLok copy protection will need the iLok to be present when they are being used.

    kind regards

    Cheers Mark,

    Is this the case? The soundtoys people said that I shouldn't have to keep authorizing?
    If you have to have your ilok in all of the time, it's a complete pain in the arse isn't it?

    I use iLok protected Plugins (Waves, Sonnox, Celemony and others) so often, I am used to it. Same thing using Nuendo, or Samplitude, or Logic up to version 7, so, no, I'm not in the least bit bothered by dongles, in fact I prefer them to system based authorisations, such as Adobe, NI and many others use, but people's views on that subject are varied ....

    kind regards

    Yeah, gotta keep that sucker plugged in. At one point I had 3 iloks going until I got the ilok2 and transferred everything to that. But, I'm not running on a laptop so I don't care if it's plugged in all the time as I never see it.
