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).

The organic sound of a tube amplifier being pushed into breakup has been the gold standard for overdriven and distorted tones for as long as musicians have been intentionally distorting their signals.

The gentle natural compression and rich blend of even and odd harmonics produced by analog tube circuitry make any effected signal feel more powerful, punchy, and alive.

Unlike solid-state transistor and fuzz circuits which only produce odd harmonics and limit the incoming signal in an unnatural and unresponsive way, Redoptor smoothly and dynamically responds to the changes in volume of incoming audio, just like a real tube amplifier. This means that louder sounds are saturated with more crunch and delicious harmonics, while softer and naturally decaying sounds clean up gradually. This creates a very sonically pleasing distortion.


Exact circuit emulation

In addition to its spot-on modeling of hot vacuum tubes being pushed into glorious, creamy distortion, Redoptor packs several features that allow it to accurately mimic the behavior of a complex analog circuit with all its interactive and complementary components.

Redoptor’s adjustable tube bias parameter creates subtle amplification of even harmonics and gentle transient reshaping in the signal. Every individual element of the plugin’s signal chain has similarly been designed to capture the subtleties and dynamics of proper high-quality analog tube distortion.


Completely adjustable preamp

Redoptor expands on classic tube guitar amplifier circuit design by offering total control of the preamp’s frequency range. The cut-off point for both high and low tones may be set before the signal is amplified and distorted, allowing for incredible versatility in sound shaping – from lo-fi to full-spectrum.


Parametric EQ

While many typical amplifiers and emulations rely on a fixed graphical equalizer offering limited control, Redoptor features a powerful parametric equalizer with independent gain and frequency control of 4 bands.


Independent stereo channel processing

Although based on the mono signal paths of vintage guitar amplifiers, Redoptor is a fully functioning stereo tube distortion with an independent path for each channel in the stereo signal. This allows each side to have completely different harmonics and distortion added to it. So, synth sounds, for example, can benefit from enhanced definition and stereo imaging in addition to the analog feel offered by the tube distortion emulation.


Dynamics under control

A built-in pre-gain compressor module and master output limiter provide even more freedom to sculpt the perfect saturated sound. These two elements are studio essentials for creative gain staging. The preliminary compressor adds punch and controls your signal’s dynamic range before it hits the highly responsive distortion stage. The master output limiter tames unruly peaks and polishes your signal as it leaves the plug-in.


Unique character

Redoptor perfectly emulates the behavior of classic hot-rodded tube guitar amplifier circuits, allowing it to sound just as good as its real-world analog ancestors.

Guitarists working in the digital realm will feel perfectly at home with Redoptor. Those who have played through an excellent high-gain tube amp will find the plug-in’s warmth, crunch, responsiveness, and singing overtones immediately familiar.

Producers and electronic musicians will also find Redoptor indispensable for the high-quality distortion, rich harmonics, and attitude it brings to their sounds.

Use it to reamp guitar parts, fatten drum loops, sweeten arpeggiated synths, beef up bass lines, or heat up any sterile audio and you’ll feel the difference its warm, rich, and truly unique character brings to your music.
