Subscription Modalities

Upon purchasing a subscription (see How to join Ircam Forum), users can:

  • Download subscribed technologies (all for Premium members) and updates for one year starting the subscription date.
  • Generate activation codes (4 / year for Individual Premium Members and 20 / year for Institutional Premium) online to activate technologies.

Users can check the status of their subscription at anytime from their Shopping Profile.

Software Activation Modalities

Access to Ircam software and technology is protected by activation codes. Activation codes are required once per computer and requested upon the first launch of the technology. Subscribed users can request Activation Codes on any software download page. Codes will be sent automatically to user by email. See instructions.

  • An activated software will remain active (including all updates) for one year starting the date of subscription.
  • An activation code, activates all subscribed technologies at once. As a consequence, Premium  users would only need to activate once to use all technologies per machine.
  • Once the one-year subscription date has passed, the software remains active and usable but users might experience warnings on subscription renewals.

Users can check and update their profiles (email, contact) at anytime from their personal dashboard.

Customer service and technology support is available to Premium Users.
