The Basics

iLok is a copy protection method used by many of our brands.

It has 3 types of activations, iLok USB, iLok Machine, and iLok Cloud.

Different brands/products will offer different iLok methods. iLok USB is always an option, but the availability of iLok Cloud and iLok Machine methods is at the discretion of the software developer.


iLok Account

For all iLok protected products, you will need an iLok account. You can create one for free here: ilok.com/#!registration


iLok License Manager

To manage your iLok licenses, there is a dedicated app called iLok License Manager. This app is used to register, activate, and move your licenses between locations.

You can download the latest installers from the iLok website: ilok.com/#!home


iLok USB Key

iLok USB

This activation is stored on an iLok 2 or 3 USB key.

It is the best option for portability, if you frequently move between multiple machines, and offline use.


iLok Machine ID

Machine ID

This activation is stored locally on your computer.

While this is a convenient way to work offline, and does not require the additional cost of an iLok USB, there is the risk of a license being lost in the case of a drive failure.

This option also requires extra care when you upgrade to a new computer, the license(s) must be deactivated on your old machine first to ensure you do not lose them.


iLok Cloud

iLok Cloud

This activation is based online, and requires a "cloud session" using the iLok License Manager.

It requires an active internet connection for the entire time you use the plugin(s).


MetaPiano is the first Spectral Modeled Grand Piano out there.

It was built upon real sound captures from a Japanese Concert Grand Piano and meticulously rebuilt by math algorithms.

It's so realistic you won't believe is not the real instrument.


The Process

It all started with the search for the perfect piano to analyze its sound.

Sampleson fell in love with a Japanese Concert Grand Piano and deeply recorded it, capturing every nuance to feed our spectral analysis with high-quality audio sources.

A peaceful studio located in Patagonia gave us the noiseless scenario we needed to capture cristal-clear waveforms with top industry Mics and Preamps.

Then the real process begins. A custom-made algorithm disassembles the audio and extracts the main characteristics of each note and noise.

Finally, the Spectral Engine 2.0 generates the sound every time you play it, making every note unique and irreplaceable since it's created on the fly.


Hyper-Detailed

MetaPiano was made upon Spectral Modeling, a technique that provides realistic sounds since it's based on real samples and not hypothetical approaches like physical modeling.

It sounds real because it is real: sound is created the same way in nature (stacking simple sinewaves together). This is why it feels organic and warm.

Sampleson has mapped more than 64 groups of timbre components (releases, hammer, key noises, main timbre, resonance, etc) and recreated them by Spectral Modeling, archiving a realistic and warm sound in only 60 MB, and with very low CPU usage.


Full Decays (No Loops)

Thanks to the Spectral Engine, MetaPiano reproduces the full length of the real notes without loops.

You'll hear decays for a minute and more on lower notes.


No Velocity Switching

MetaPiano is built upon the full dynamics of the real instrument.

There's no velocity switching because there are no layers or regions or anything that old sampling techniques need.
