Can I Install the bundled PODfarm on 2 machines?

I've recently purchased a KB37 to use on my laptop as a 'mobile workstation' for editing, comping, and also vocal-only demo sessions, etc.

With the Pod Farm software, this is great to be able to record a guitar at the same time as vocals, but when I transfer back to my 'main' desktop studio machine, I would want the pod farm software available there as well. I know several large software companies allow 2 instances of their software to be installed and activated on separate machines, and that the Pod Farm 'purchased' software is available for an iLok to do something similar - but could not find any documentation as to how the version bundled with the KB37 is handled.

If it cannot, I don't want to install it and will use 3rd party software, but thought it was worth asking first!

Yes you can!

The Hardware is the Dongle, either a Toneport, Pod studio or Guitarport Device for the Standalone version of Pod Farm. Or All of the Previously mentioned, and as well Pod XT & Pod X3 series, plus the iLok for the Plug-in Version!

So the important issue here is to have a line 6 device or iLok, connected via a USB port, on the computer that you are using. You can have the Podfarm software loaded on as many computers as you want!

Yes, you can. You will only have to authorize the plugin in both machines, either with the Line 6 Monkey, or authorizing in one and copying the authorization file (.aet extension).

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
