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:!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:!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).

Breathe Life Into Your Guitar Amp Sims and Cabinet Impulse Responses

Simply add IRDX Core after your guitar amp or IR loader plugin and discover the natural movement, the 3D sensation, the slightly jagged edges, and the unpredictability you could previously only obtain by recording an actual guitar cabinet at high volumes with a microphone.

This Is Not an IR Loader

IRDX Core is a unique plugin.

It does not load impulse responses but instead can be placed after any amp sim or IR loader to add natural sounding speaker dynamics.

The kind you can only get by blasting a big speaker cabinet at incredibly high volume.

What's Wrong with Impulse Responses?

We love IRs here at Bogren Digital. Well-made IRs are vital to obtaining a great guitar amp sound on the computer.

But all IRs have a significant limitation: they can only capture a static, linear image of the tone curve and resonances of the cabinet. Like a photograph, if you will.

On the other hand, real-life guitar speakers are living, moving things that respond dynamically to the input signal being fed into them.

Speakers are non-linear, and it's those non-linearities that IRDX faithfully emulates and adds to your amp sim or IR loader.

How Do I Use IRDX Core?

In any major DAW, launch the IRDX Core plugin on an insert slot that immediately follows an IR loader plugin or a guitar amp simulation that includes a model of a speaker cab.

You can use IRDX Core to enhance any such plugin - except for the Bogren Digital ones! That's because all Bogren amp sim plugins already have the IRDX technology built into them, so there's no need to add IRDX Core after those.

Any other brand's IR loader or guitar amp plugin will sound better if it's followed by IRDX Core.

Input Calibration

In most cases, no adjustments are necessary in the IRDX Core plugin.

If you want to ensure IRDX Core responds in the most natural way, you can use automatic input calibration that will listen to your guitar signal and ensure you get a healthy input level.

Pick A Style

IRDX Core comes with two distinct modes - "Normal" and "Intense".

"Normal" mode offers subtle, natural speaker movement, compression, and distortion.

The "Intense" mode offers a slightly different flavor and makes these effects more noticeable. Have a listen and pick one that fits your music the best.

The IRDX Difference

Like tape saturation, the IRDX effect may seem subtle at first

But going back and forth between enabling and bypassing it, here's what you'll notice:

With IRDX Core disabled, every stroke on the guitar sounds similar, and the guitar seems somewhat two-dimensional and lifeless.

With IRDX activated, differences between the individual strokes are more discernible, the sound wakes up, and you get all the changes over time that are so important to keep the listeners’ attention.

Using IRDX Core in a mixing situation adds width, movement, and excitement to guitar tracks. It also helps guitars sit better with the other instruments.

With IRDX Core activated, the guitar sound reacts more realistically to your playing when you play through an amp sim in real time.
