I have been researching buying a PT system for a couple of weeks and have noticed lots of folks selling systems used with "this or that" plug-in still installed on the computer. It certainly makes these systems more attractive. I understand that if these are authorized intalls the plugs will work but (for instance) don't plugs like the Waves Gold bundle require a hardware dongle to work?

Are they the only ones using a hardware dongle?

To my knowledge, Waves is the only company of the major TDM plug-in developers that uses the dongle method of protection.

Wave Mechanics, the makers of Pitch Doctor and Pure Pitch also use the dongle method.

I bought the Pure Pitch/Pitch Doctor Bundle about 2 years ago for the Mac and it came with a dongle.
