Korg Legacy: no more USB copy protection

! This post hasn't been updated in over 2 years.


Good news, KORG has announced it’s switching from the USB Key Copy Protection to Challenge/Response License Authorization for its Legacy software. Today KORG has released KLC updaters where the user can choose either copy protection method.
KORG is going “to stop providing user support services for the USB Key Copy Protection system effective from April 30, 2010. And from May 2010, any updates we issue will support only the Challenge/Response License Authorization system, not the USB Key Copy Protection system”.

Unfortunately KORG has made things quite complicated for its Legacy customers until now (the first release of the software had a c/r method, then they adopted the USB Synchrosoft/Steinberg dongle, and now they’re changing back to a simple c/r method). Let’s hope they’ll streamline the whole thing from now on, also because from a sonic point of view the package is excellent.

Anyway, here all the official details:
