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).

Introducing Discovery Virtual Analog Synthesizer, a powerful and versatile synthesizer inspired by the classic Nord Lead 2.

With its 64-bit Audio Units / VST / VST3 compatibility, Discovery is a must-have for any music producer or composer looking to elevate their sound.

With 4 layers and 8 oscillators with sync and FM options, Discovery allows you to create complex and intricate sounds with ease.

The built-in arpeggiator gives you the ability to add dynamic and rhythmic elements to your compositions, adding depth and energy to your music.

Discovery features 8 filter types, including Zero-Delay Feedback DSP, allowing you to shape your sounds in new and exciting ways.

The panning modulation, stereo delay, and gate effects give you the ability to create lush and immersive soundscapes that will transport your audience to new musical dimensions.

For those familiar with the Nord Lead 2, Discovery makes it easy to import your SysEx data, giving you immediate access to all your favorite sounds and presets.

Whether you're looking to create new and exciting music or simply looking for an inspiring virtual analog synthesizer, the Discovery is the perfect tool for your musical journey.

Discovery's architecture provides maximum flexibility when programming your own sounds.

Start by selecting from the two oscillators, and then add one of the several types of filters, and then program the appropriate ADSR envelope for the sound.

Finally, the flexible modulation scheme and built-in effects allow you to color your sound to your liking and save it to one of the 128 patch memories in one of 40 banks offering more than 3,500 presets, including a dedicated electronic percussion section.

With support for 4 layers per patch, and morphing between layers, Discovery quickly becomes a remarkably expressive synth for any type of music.

Nord Lead's Best Friend

Discovery has been highly inspired by one of Clavia's synth masterpieces: the Nord Lead 2.

Discovery can import Nord Lead 2 and Nord Lead 2X Sysex patches directly, and 99% of their MIDI CC are bound to the original Nord Lead knobs, making your hardware synth the perfect friend for this plugin.
