Authorization

Overview

The first time you open the RX 6 Audio Editor application or RX 6 plug-in(s), the Authorization window will appear.

The Authorization window allows you to:

  • TRIAL: Start or continue a Trial period evaluation prior to purchasing
  • DEMO: Continue evaluating the product with Demo limitations (after the 30 day Trial period has been exceeded)
  • AUTHORIZE: Authorize the product with a serial number

Trial & Demo Modes

A 30 day trial period will start when you first open the RX 6 Audio Editor or RX 6 plug-ins. After the 30 day trial period has expired, RX 6 will enter demo mode. To disable Trial or Demo mode, you must authorize the product with a valid serial number.

Trial mode

Trial mode begins when the RX Audio Editor is first opened or when an RX 6 plug-in is first instantiated in a DAW/NLE. The authorization wizard window will display the number of days remaining in your trial period.

Clicking on the “Continue” button will dismiss the Authorization window and allow you to continue evaluating RX 6 in trial mode.

Trial Mode Functionality

  • The RX 6 plug-ins offer full functionality during the 30 day Trial period.
  • The RX 6 Audio Editor offers full access to all editing tools and processing modules but saving, exporting and batch processing are not available during the 30 day Trial period.

Demo mode

After 30 days, RX 6 will operate in Demo mode. In Demo mode, the RX 6 Audio Editor is limited to 30 seconds of continuous playback and RX 6 plug-ins will periodically output silence. If you would like to continue evaluating RX 6 in demo mode, click the “Demo” button.
