What are the limitations of the trial/evaluation plugins?
The trial/evaluation plugins are fully functional, except for parameter communication between the plugin and the host, which is disabled. Consequently, hosts will not store the settings of the trial/evaluation plugins upon save. Obviously the registered versions do not have this limitation.
How to order registered (fully functional) plugins
Upgrading your trial/evaluation versions of the plugins is simple:
- Visit the online shop to place an order for a ‘registration key file’ for the plugin or bundle you are interested in. You will be forwarded to PayPal for the purchase.
- After completion of the payment process, and when the payment is cleared by PayPal, you will receive an automated email that includes a download link for the registration key files. This link will be available for 14 days.
- Download and extract the registration key file(s) (‘TB_PluginName.key’) and place it in the exact same folder as the corresponding VST or AU plugin(s). Please consult the manual for more details.
How can I pay?
We currently support PayPal and credit card transactions (through PayPal).
Can I use the same key on Windows and OSX?
Yes. The registration key files are personal (associated to you as an individual) and hence you can use the same key file on multiple PCs, even across platforms.
Do I need to register or create an account?
No, not at all. You will not need a ToneBoosters account (in fact, there is no such thing). Just proceed to the downloads or webshop section. You can use a PayPal account for payment, but if you do not have a PayPal account, you can pay with credit card without a PayPal account.
How do I get updates?
Simply download the latest evalution plugin set and overwrite the older binaries. Make sure you keep your existing registration key files! Please consult the manual for a more extensive description of the update process here.
How do I get to know about updates?
New releases are communicated through various channels:
If you ‘like’ that page you will receive ToneBoosters news on your Facebook wall.
Do I need a serial number or hardware key?
No. Our trial/evaluation plugins can be upgraded to fully functional versions with a separate registration ‘key file’. The registration key file must be stored in the same folder/directory as the corresponding VST plugin. Please make sure to make a backup copy of this registration key file; if the registration key file is lost or damaged the plugin will automatically downgrade to a demo version.
What if I did not receive the download link?
The download links are send by an automated process. Normally you should receive an email with a link within 15 minutes or so. In some ocassions it may take longer but it should never take more than 1 day.
Automated emails are sometimes regarded as spam by spam filters; please do check your spam folder before contacting us.
The download link will be emailed to the email address registered by PayPal. Please do check your email box registered to PayPal before contacting us.
The download link does not work
Please try to copy-and-paste the complete link (without any line breaks!) in the browser URL instead of clicking on the link.
