The USB Key Edition is ideal if you frequently move from computer to computer, or between the Macintosh and Windows platforms. With the USB Key Edition, you can run Isadora in on any computer in which the key (i.e., "dongle") is inserted. Just insert the key, start up Isadora, and you'll be able to edit and save your patches.

The first time you use the key on a given computer, you'll need to enter a special code sent to you when you purchased the key. These special codes – one for Macintosh and one for Windows – are sent to you when you purchase the USB Key Edition.

You can find instructions on how to register the USB Key version by clicking "USB Key Edition - You have a USB Key" in the Register section of our "Get It" page.

After that, simply insert the key, start up Isadora, and you'll be able to edit and save your patches.

Please note: When you buy either a USB Key Edition or a USB Key upgrade in our shop, it will take two to three weeks for the key to arrive. You will receive a notification email with tracking information for your package so you can track its progress.  

Buyers of a USB Key Edition will receive a time-limited Standard Edition license (by email) within 48 hours of their purchase to allow them to begin using Isadora. The duration of the time-limited licenses will ensure that you will be able to work until your USB key arrives.
