Yes you do.
The QX1/2 and VX10/20 wings will work in demo mode (no dongle) but require a dongle before they will work without random blackouts.

The way Clarity works is that you can buy any combination of hardware and software.
So you ALWAYS need a CT/? software license, no matter what, if any, hardware that you buy.
We do this for two reasons.
1) Some people do not want any hardware, as they use a touchscreen computer and Art-Net, so all they want to buy is a software license.
2) Some users will want to control surface provided by a VX wing, but have no need for the full number of DMX slots that the 4 DMX connectors can provide. So they can by a VX20 with just 500 channels at a much lower price than a VX20 with 2,000 channels.
3) You can run multiple licenses. Clarity is unique in the ability to run multiple software licenses on one machine. So a hire company may purchase 2 x CT/1 licenses (500 channels each) and 1 x VX20 + 1 x VX10 wing. Then they can hire this out as 2 x separate 500 channel systems, or by plugging the two HASP keys into one computer they can send it out as a single 1,000 channel with either the VX20 or the VX10 or both.
4) The software license is for channels, not DMX universes. So if you use a CT/1 (500 channel) license with a VX20, you are not limited to using only one of the DMX connectors on the rear panel. You can patch 100 channels to DMX-A, then 64 channels to DMX-B, 50 channels to DMX-C, 200 channels to DMX-D and still have the option of sending the remaining channels via Art-Net.
(So I guess that is 4 not 2 reasons)
