Why do I need to be connected to the internet?
You need to be online in order to:
- Sign in to the UJAM App
- Download your software
- Activate your plugin
Once authorized, you can use your plugins offline, while the UJAM App will look like this:
My studio computer is not connected to the internet at all
Since our copy protection system works based on system fingerprints, a direct offline authorization is unfortunately not possible for Usynth and Virtual Pianist. Please note that if you go online for just a short moment, that's all it takes to activate your plugin. Once authorized, the plugin can afterwards be used without an active internet connection.
At the moment we can only offer a rather complicated workaround in order to activate your other UJAM Instruments plug-ins on a computer completely offline. We are already working on a better solution!
Please follow these instructions:
- Download the installer file of GROOVEMATE ONE (it's a free trial) and also the installer files of the other respective UJAM plug-ins you bought and wish to authorize offline (load the installers from our website)
- Transfer the installer files to the offline computer you want to use
- Install the software
- Open your DAW and load an instance of GROOVEMATE ONE
- An .ops file gets generated. Go to the following location and find the .ops file:
