I just ordered Logic Studio and I'm having trouble finding the answer to my question, which is:

Is Logic only good for an install onto one machine? I'm planning on installing it onto my Mac Pro, but I'm also about to purchase a MBP and I'd like to install it on that as well. Is this doable out of the box? Or would I have to purchase another license or something?

Thanks,

Adrien

That's doable out of the box.

The license probably allows installation on 1 desktop and 1 notebook.

The answer is in the text of the licensing agreement, assuming it allows installation onto a desktop and laptop isn't a correct interpretation unless it specifically instructs that that is the case.

The reality is that without a hardware dongle, you can install onto both machines but, unless allowed by the license, it would be a breach of the license to do so.

Your call, is that a parrot on your shoulder....?:D;)

I just spoke with an Apple Sales Rep. online and he told me Logic Studio is good for installation on 1 Notebook and 1 Desktop.
