SD ignition key
 
By a show of hands, how many reason users would benefit from this?

I think the props should seriously consider this as it is more than possible from their suppliers end and would reduce the amount of frustration of reason users.
I would gladly pay the extra to have the sd card if it meant i didn't have to worry about the usb ignition key taking up an extra usb port.

I fully support the props protecting their software from pirates but why should we suffer

Not a bad idea as it would free up a USB port for laptops etc.

I don't know if I'd prefer it but I think they could definitely offer it as an option in the Prop shop.

Well ye, giving people the option keeps them happy :)
I'd prefer it as i use a macbook and if i want to plug my controllers in i'd have to keep taking them in and out using one at a time which is just hassle

Maybe they could stick a flash drive on there for REs, so you can stick your whole rack in a pocket.

Would be handy for people with an offline computer setup in their studio

no the sd card would serve the same purpose as the current usb ignition key.

the ignition key is a codemeter product, and they make a variety of other "ignition key" type products like flash cards, pci, etc...

I emailed props about this exact idea last week

same logic. I need usb ports for performance controllers but I have a free sd card slot on my mbp

No—as in I wouldn't benefit from it with my late 2008 Macbook Pro.
