Ok I got a couple of Q's about Reaktor 5. Firstly I love the demo I've been playing with and while looking for the Edu price (I'm cheap!) I found a deal where you buy Reaktor Session and the Upgrade to Reaktor 5 for 199. This sounds awesome to me as bought on its own Reaktor 5 is 350.

Firstly, in the upgrade, you do get the full manual and cd dont you? Its not just a download from the web?

Secondly, whats the copy protection on Reaktor 5? The reason I ask is I'm planning on buying Cubase SL/SX which I know uses a dongle. As I've only got 2 USB ports I'd really be shooting myself in the foot getting having 2 dongle protected softwares.

Cheers for any answers :D

Answer to number two is a USB hub, which should be a standard purchase for a 2-port machine anyways.

We have an Cubase dongle, Logic dongle, and a midiman 2x2 all running off a cheap usb hub in our studio, so you should be ok.
