Its really working out very well as so much software that was not accessible for me suddenly is and its all on the same computer.
If the iLok system helps keep these audio software companies health and some what protected from piracy then I feel its worth supporting even if its a little bit of a hassle....honestly when I need to locate the ilok2 dongle, well its no bigger the a flash drive I have a hard time finding it among the spaghetti junction behind my laptop....that says more about trying to running a studio from a laptop
With so many variations in Hub configurations, USB, Thunderbolt, Firewire I feel there's really no reason for concern.
Well one of my real concerns is also hardware, I have audio cards, UAD2 firewire, Powercore, Kyma system, etc that i still use. If I upgrade to a new Mac then I loose all this stuff that I have built up over the years. And I'm not ready to spend thousands of dollars more to get back to where I was, it all still works fine for me.
Uh-oh. This might be a deal breaker:
"All Exponential Audio plugins require the iLok2 software protection key. This USB dongle is available from any music retailer."
Deal breaker for me as well. I have an old iLok that has waves plugins on it, I am not going to buy a new iLok2 for anything. At work we have like 16 of them on various workstations and they are always causing issues.
Another issue is it requires OS 10.8 or higher, I'm stuck on 10.6.8 with no plans to upgrade in the near future. It makes it a lot easier to ignore all these new plugins for me.
The biggest problem with forums from what I've seen is that they are old technology. People are more accustomed to bite size online interaction now, Twitter, Instagram, and the like. I've seen several forums become inactive over the last few years.

Spacious ambient with dub elements from the master. This is better than much of his celebrated work on Silent Season. Worth a listen.
