Great product but software with it is a nightmare
on 15 February 2013
Great quality hand recorder - for basic recording it's intuitively easy to record stuff and transfer the files on to the computer for editing. Trying to install and license the accompanying CUBASE LE6 software is painful - I've given up for now. The instructions are unclear and you need an activation code which is not present. According to the documentation "The Cubase LE 6 installation process automatically creates a Soft-eLicenser with a temporary Cubase LE 6 license." It didn't for me. According to the documentation "The Soft-eLicenser authorization is also covered in detail in the Operation Manual PDF." - not a single mention! Again, according to the documentation "An activation code can be requested free of charge within the MySteinberg area of the Steinberg website" - you cannot even get into the MySteinberg area without an activation code!!!! Zoom and Steinberg need to get together to make sure this issue is documented better and that there is support.
