Frequently Asked Questions


Yes! We offer a 30% academic discount to full-time students or educators who use our plugins as tools in their teaching. You will need to provide proof of your identity, and documentation confirming your current full-time enrollment or employment as a music educator.

Please submit your application here.

All applications require our manual verification. Upon approval (usually within 48 hours) you will receive a discount coupon for use in the Tone Projects shop. Please note that licenses purchased with academic discount are NFR (Not-For-Resale) meaning that they cannot be transferred to another person in the future.

No dongle is required to run our plug-ins. No restrictive challenge/response system either.

We use simple serial numbers to unlock the plug-ins. When you purchase a Tone Projects product, you'll receive an automated response within minutes containing your user-name, serial number and download link for the installer. That's it! Simple, quick and flexible. You'll be able to unlock your plug-ins on new computers as long as you store your user name and serial number.

Yes! The license you have purchased is your personal license, meaning that you may install the program on as many of your computers as needed, provided that the program is used on only one computer at a time. If you share a computer and another engineer will be using the plug-in as well, then you'll need two licenses.

The Unisum trial is time-unlimited but restricts session recall and loading/saving of user presets. A subtle noise burst is added to the output every so often. If you save a project with the trial version you will be able to restore the session with a licensed version.

The trial versions for our legacy plugins (Sonitex and Compadre) are fully functional for a 30 day period, except for the insertion of a gentle beep/noise burst at one minute intervals and a slightly higher CPU usage.

As you may have noticed, the trial versions cannot be unlocked. You need to download the full version to unlock your plug-in.
