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).


Five Legendary Electric Pianos

Velvet is a virtual electronic piano that combines five legendary electric pianos from the 60s and 70s into one versatile instrument. Based on the Fender Rhodes Suitcase, Fender Rhodes MK I and MK II Stage Pianos, Wurlitzer 200A and Hohner Pianet-T, Velvet accurately emulates the sound quality, response, and nuances of each original instrument to bring your piano tracks to life. Additionally, Velvet features a pallet of onboard effects and allows you to control every aspect of the sound for unparalleled realism: turn up the tube drive controls in the preamp section to warm up your tone; adjust the timbre, dynamic response, and velocity curve to customize the playing feel; and mix in the sound of pedal and other keyboard mechanical noises to recreate an authentic electric piano track.


Tap Into Timeless Sounds

Using proprietary dynamic modelling, a unique combination of optimized sampling and modelling techniques, Velvet is capable of producing highly realistic recreations of classic electric piano sounds with superior fidelity and dynamic response. Additionally, Velvet features the revolutionary Vintage Mode that allows you to tap into the timeless sounds heard on countless classic recordings. Vintage Mode intelligently tweaks the timbre setting to readjust the sonic character of Velvet to match these electric pianos from the past. With the Vintage Mode, you can sound just like your favourite electric piano players.


Classic Effects

Velvet features a built-in preamp and an array of effects to add crunch, ambience, or tremolo to your electric piano track. Its powerful preamp section includes tube overdrive, compression, and a custom 3-band EQ with a parametric mid band to shape your sound. Process your sound further using a wide range of distortion, wah/filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tape delay effects to emulate a vintage sound or forge something new. The Ambience, Spring, and Room reverbs can add an expansive ambience to create otherworldly effects, or a small room reverb to add a bit of colour to your performance. You can also add tremolo and autopan effects; the former is modelled after those on the original electric pianos.


Professional Presets

Velvet includes 350+ professional presets meticulously programmed by AIR Music Technology's sound designers that make it easy to call up Format-AUthentic electric piano sounds. You can even create your own unique presets by dialling into Velvet’s powerful controls. The graphic user interface is reminiscent of vintage electric pianos, and its controls are modeled after the originals, allowing you to easily modify sounds at the twist of a knob or notch of a slider.
