Spat as standalone for finished musical pieces?

Hi all,
I have a question/suggestion. I’m a new music composer, very interested on the use of the space as a musical parameter. I work in Max MSP since few years. I’m very interested in spat~, I’ve used it and I think it’s (as you may already know) an excellent and effective tool for composing, creating, expressing, researching, music and music art in general.
The one negative part of the program I found is the licensing. My pieces, when done, come with a score and a max patch in a “standalone application” version (by using this version I don’t force musicians to purchase Max for just performing my piece). Inside the max patch I want to use spat, but I know that the person who’s interested in performing the piece must have a spat license to make my patches work, I know it because when I want to run my standalone app in a computer that is not mine, it won’t launch until I enter the access key from IRCAM.
I found this inadequate and I believe there should be a solution to this problem, there should be a way of getting pieces performed when the owner of the license is not present anywhere where the piece will be played.
Would IRCAM or the spat developers open to create a solution to this problem? (like the Max developers did).
Comments?, ideas?
Thanks very much for your time.

Hi again T.
Now that I know this new feature about licensing I am decided to start working seriously on spat. The institution where I work is the one having spat (and where I tried), now I want to have my own.
So, the steps to follow will be first to purchase spat~, second to installed and automatically I can use it in Max and include it on my standalone apps?….
Thanks so much for your time.

Hi Nicolas,

You are correct !

(NB : you may also consider the “Individual Premium Access” rather than purchasing just Spat…)
