Multiple live serials

Post by Starbuck7410 » Mon May 16, 2016 7:40 pm

I bought a launchpad S not so long ago and i am planning to buy a launchkey 49. the launchpad came with a serial and i used it. The launchkey also have a serial to authorize ableton live lite. If i will buy it and use the serial i will have 2 serial numbers to authorize ableton live lite. Is there any way i can get more features if i have registered 2 different authorization codes to the same edition of ableton? Is there any way i can use the second serial with a benefit? Thank you very much, Starbuck

You can use it on a different computer or give it to a friend so you can jam with them.

That's the benefit anyway. You asked what you can do and that's about it.
Unless you have 3 machines you want Ableton on? With 2 serials you can have 4 machines at the same time. I imagine in different places, like work, girlfriend, weekend residence and so on.

You could of course also sync 3-4 weaker machines with demanding softsynths by spreading the CPU load over all these, but usually 2 would do in that case.

As far as I know you can't "combine" two Ableton Lite licences to get the full version. You still have to pay to upgrade one of them
