Please stop distributing missinformation here. It is not true that your computer must be connected to the internet to be able to use Icarus2. You can use it offline. You only need to be connected to the internet for a single time: To download the software and to unlock it
If you need internet connection to unlock the software, that's challenge-response and he is technically correct - you cannot use the synth without an internet connection. Although the way you've worded it it's not absolutely clear if you need internet for download only or for download and unlocking, I'd assume it's for both.
You receive a key file (like Spire) not online challenge response.
*edit* This was my experience, but the thread seems to imply there is CR. :shrug:

Attention - The free Upgrade reqires Internet connection !

But everywhere is written that it does not need internet connection, so I do not install it on my music PC.

Has anyone got the same Installer (Icarus 2 RC 1).

If i do not get an other Installer I have take a lawyer and go to Court.

An internet-connection is required for the download and the activation. It's really not a drama even on an offline PC. All you need is to plug in your network-cable for a single time when you activate it.
To be able to make music it is NOT necessary that your computer is connected to the internet.

I had controverse discussions and questions in here and if you read my posts you will soon realize I am far from being a "fanboy".

But if there is any border of humanity left inside kvr PLEASE RESPECT THIS WISH

Yes, that leaves you speechless...

All best wishes to you Markus :hug:

If it is as people says it is now... that is actually Challenge/Response (C/R) Markus.

I mean why you didn't do mention of any of this?, the thing I like about your synths is that I have my products and my keys and there is not dependency of the company, I can save my keys in my external hard drive and I don't have to ask permissions to the company in order to use it. Even in years and any times my software continues functional and there is not dependency, it always has been like that.

I have been willing to support your works but if it is like this now, I will not upgrade absolutely never, Never. This is a very bad news from one of my favorite depevelopers.

I will stay in 1.6 all time, I will not buy any tone2 product never anymore.

@JuneSev

You don't have to worry about anything. It will be removed as soon as the product is getting older. Then a complete offline activation we be possible again.
Sadly this step was necessary, since too many criminals used stolen credit-cards to buy the software and resold the keys on ebay or 'shared them with all their friends'.
