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).


Dual Voice Pitch Shifter + Special FX

MicroPitch is a fine-resolution pitch shifter for subtle tone fattening, plus delays for dramatic slap back effects. MicroPitch is the latest incarnation of an iconic effect originated by Eventide in the 1970s. With each generation, Eventide has added refined, enhanced and built-on it's legendary predecessors.

MicroPitch can take you beyond the run-of-mill stereo spread effects of simple micropitch plugins. It goes above and beyond by allowing you to mix in detuned and delayed versions of your source, creating depth and dimensions not possible before. With its expanded controls you can achieve deep pitch dives, haunting echoes, and pristine chorusing effects.

And, like all H9 series plug-ins, MicroPitch is designed to 'play'. The RIBBON lets you sweep the effect between two completely different settings. Turn your sweetening shift into a delay-throw and back, or change your delays from dark to bright for transitional effects. Use the Ribbon to add a bit of 'life' while you're mixing. For desktop users, plug in a MIDI keyboard and gain control of the Ribbon via the mod wheel for tactile control of this intuitive performance macro.


Play It Live

The plug-in has been enhanced for experimentation and live performance and fine-tuned for your desktop or laptop. It also promises much more tweak-ability than more simple pitch shifting plugins. Tone, Modulation, and Feedback controls provide territory for ear-catching production techniques. Unleash the full range of MicroPitch’s parameters and you can discover rich repeating delays, thick modulations, and tempo-synced special effects.


Features

  • Two voices of pitch shifting, one from unison to -50 cents, the other from unison to +50 cents, each with up to 2 seconds of delay
  • Classic stereo-spreading effect
  • Slapback effects using longer delay times
  • TONE for fine-tuning the voices to fit perfectly in your mix
  • PITCH MIX for layering the two voices by setting the balance between each shifted delay
  • MOD DEPTH and RATE for a chorusing effect on each voice
  • FEEDBACK for pitch dive/rise effects
  • Intuitive UI for ease of use
  • Tempo for synchronized and unique delay effects
  • Presets based on iconic uses of the MicroPitch effect
  • RIBBON lets you ‘play’ the effect in real-time and provides dynamic and fluid control to morph back and forth between the settings of your choice
  • MIXLOCK keeps MIX control constant as you audition presets
  • Available for Mac and PC as VST3, AAX, and AU plug-in

MicroPitch's Proud Legacy

Eventide originated the micropitch effect by accident in the early 1970s with the introduction of the world’s first digital audio effects box, the H910 Harmonizer. The design of the H910 predates large (and medium) scale integrated circuits, including analog-to-digital converters, sample rate standards, and digital signal processing algorithms. The H910's system clock was not crystal-based but instead used an LC (inductor/capacitor) oscillator circuit which proved to be just a tad unstable. As a result, the pitch ratio would wiggle about. Early owners of the H910, especially studios that could afford two, discovered that setting the pitch ratio on one H910 to ‘flicker’ between 0.99 and 1.00, while adjusting another to flicker 1.00 and 1.01, resulted in a rich spread stereo effect. And, a few adventurous engineers like Tony Visconti working with David Bowie and Brian Eno on Low, discovered that combining a tiny bit of pitch change, a short delay, and feedback created something new and exciting – “Pitch Dive!”.
