Your license for Auto-Tune® Unlimited, Auto-Tune® Pro, Auto-Tune Access, Auto-Tune EFX+, Auto-Tune Artist, Auto-Key, AVOX 4, or any of the individual AVOX plugins (Articulator, Aspire, Choir, Duo, Harmony Engine, Mic Mod, Mutator, Punch, Sybil, Throat, Warm) can be activated on up to two computers at a time. Repeat these steps for each computer.

1. Install CodeMeter

Download and install the CodeMeter application.

2. Install Your Antares Plug-in

Download and run the latest installer for Auto-Tune Pro, Auto-Tune Artist, Auto-Tune EFX+, Auto-Tune Access, or Auto-Key. This will also install the Antares Central application, which you’ll use to manage your Antares licenses.

3. Open Antares Central

After installing your Antares plug-in, you can find the Antares Central application here:


 /Applications/Antares Audio Technologies


C:\Program Files\Antares Audio Technologies

4. Log in to your Account

Enter your email address and password in the Antares Central app to log in to your Antares account.

5. Activate the license 

If you purchased the license directly from Antares, go to the “Manage Licenses” screen to find the license available for activation.  Click “Activate” and wait until the process completes. 

If you purchased it elsewhere, select “Activate a New Product License” and then select the “From a dealer or software bundle” option.  On the "Redeem Registration Code" screen, enter your registration code and click “Register” to register and activate your license.

Please be patient, as the activation process may take up to 1-2 minutes.
