But before you can start making music with Cubase 7, you need to activate your license with an activation key. This is a special code that allows you to download and store your license on your computer or a USB-eLicenser (dongle). Without a valid license, you will not be able to run Cubase 7 or access its full functionality.


In this article, we will explain what an activation key is, how to get one, how to use it and what to do if you need to reactivate your license. We will also provide some tips and tricks for troubleshooting common issues related to Cubase 7 activation.


What is an Activation Key?




An activation key is a 32-digit alphanumeric code that identifies your Cubase 7 product and links it to your Steinberg account. You can only use an activation key once, and it cannot be transferred to another user or computer.


To activate your license, you need to enter your activation key in the eLicenser Control Center (eLCC). This is a utility that manages the licenses for Steinberg products and allows you to download and store them on your computer or a USB-eLicenser (dongle).


The eLCC is installed automatically with Cubase 7, but you can also download it separately from the Steinberg website. To use your activation key, you need to have an internet connection on your computer.


How to Get an Activation Key?




You can get an activation key from different sources, depending on how you purchased Cubase 7:


  • If you bought Cubase 7 as a boxed software, you will find a download access code printed on a sheet (essential product license information) inside the box. You need to redeem this code in the Steinberg Download Assistant (SDA), which is an application that helps you download and install Cubase 7 and its updates. When you redeem the code in the SDA, an activation key will be automatically generated and used to download and activate your license.



  • If you bought Cubase 7 as a download from the Steinberg online shop, you will receive a confirmation email with either an activation key or a download access code. If you have an activation key, you can enter it directly in the eLCC. If you have a download access code, you need to redeem it in the SDA first.



  • If you have an older version of Cubase LE, Cubase AI or WaveLab LE, you will get a demo license limited in time when you install the software. To get a permanent license, you need to register the software online in your MySteinberg account. After registration, you will receive an activation key by email.



How to Use an Activation Key?




Once you have your activation key, you can use it to activate your license in the eLCC. To use your activation key, follow these steps:


  • Install Cubase 7 on your computer. Make sure to install the latest update if available in the SDA or on the Steinberg download pages.



  • Open the eLCC. You will find it under 'Program Files' (Windows) or 'Applications' (Mac OS X).



  • Apply the 'Maintenance & Online Synchronisation' by clicking on 'Perform Maintenance Tasks' (or click on the 'Maintenance' button at the top right if not shown). This will update the eLCC and ensure that your licenses are synchronized with the Steinberg server.



  • Click on 'Enter Activation Code' and enter your activation code in the field provided. Make sure to enter it exactly as it appears in your email or on your sheet.



  • Select where you want to store your license: either on the soft-eLicenser (locally on hard disk) or on the USB-eLicenser (dongle). If your software requires a USB-eLicenser or if you want to use one for portability reasons, make sure it is connected and displayed by the eLCC.



  • Click on 'Download License' and wait until the process is completed. You will see a confirmation message when your license is successfully activated.



  • Close the eLCC and start Cubase 7. You should be able to use all its features without any limitations.



What is Reactivation?




Reactivation is the process of requesting new activation keys for already registered licenses. This is necessary if you need to activate Cubase 7 on a new computer or after reinstalling your operating system. Reactivation allows you to transfer your license from one soft-eLicenser to another without losing it.


Note that reactivation is only possible for soft-eLicenser licenses. If your license is stored on a USB-eLicenser, you do not need to reactivate it. You just need to connect the USB-eLicenser to your new computer after installing Cubase 7.


To reactivate your license, follow these steps:


  • Install Cubase 7 on your new computer. Make sure to install the latest update if available in the SDA or on the Steinberg download pages.



  • Open the eLCC and apply the 'Maintenance & Online Synchronisation' by clicking on 'Perform Maintenance Tasks' (or click on the 'Maintenance' button at the top right if not shown).



  • Note down or copy the new soft-eLicenser number that appears in the eLCC under 'eLicensers'. This is a unique 20-digit alphanumeric code that identifies your new soft-eLicenser.



  • Log in to your MySteinberg account on the Steinberg website. If you do not have an account yet, create one for free.



  • Go to 'My Products' and click on 'Reactivation'. Select Cubase 7 from the list of registered products and enter your new soft-eLicenser number in the field provided.



  • You will receive an email with a new activation key for Cubase 7. Enter this code in the eLCC as described above and download your license.



  • Close the eLCC and start Cubase 7. You should be able to use it on your new computer without any problems.
