License File Information

License File Installation


The license file installation procedure is identical to the Mixbus licensing process.


Without a valid license, the plugins function normally, except the GUI does not respond to any mouse interaction and eventually fades to black. Audio processing is not affected.


After purchasing you will receive an email with a link to the license key file.
(in the unlikely case that it ends up in your spam folder, the sender is "Harrison Consoles" and the subject will be "Your x42 Professional Meters Delivery Information")

The purchased license is strictly personal. You may not share it with other individuals, but it is valid on for all operating systems and can be used on different machines of the owner.

The license-key is a standard text file. Download it and copy it into your user's HOME folder (keep the file-name x42-meters.txt or x42-eq.txt).








In case it annoys you to have an extra file around in your home dir, you can prefix it with a dot on OSX or GNU/Linux). eg $HOME/.x42-meters.txt to hide it.

On Windows you can simply move it to %localappdata%\x42-meters.txt.
This is usually expands to C:\Users\YOUR-USER-NAME\AppData\Local\x42-meters.txt, to navigate to that folder, open the windows explorer and simply type %localappdata% then press enter.
