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).


VSM IV - The Sounds from 46 Classic and Rare String Machines

The organic-sounding Virtual String Machine (VSM) is an intuitive yet highly powerful string machine synthesiser that's the perfect solution for creating the sound bed of your next track.

It contains a wealth of sounds from 46 classic and rare machines.

Those sounds can be combined using two layers, allowing for a unique fusion of instruments made exclusively possible by VSM.

VSM comes with 1900+ presets, including 200+ new patches and over 11.5 GB of data, enabling you to craft your own unique synthetic strings.


What's New in VSM IV?

VSM IV introduces new features that elevate the user experience and expand your creative possibilities.

VSM IV has a fully scalable UI.

The new powerful Patch and Instrument Browsers empower effortless navigation through the extensive library of more than 1900 patches, ensuring quick access to the perfect sound.

Take advantage of new functions like Undo, Redo, Copy, and Paste, ensuring seamless editing and flexible experimentation.

Experience authentic ageing with the new Wow and Flutter features, augmenting the organic imperfections that give these vintage instruments their unique charm.

Introducing an alternative state-variable filter and ensemble effect, new LFO shaping possibilities, a chorus, and a matrix reverb adds further depth and character to your sound.

The expanded Poly Aftertouch and Velocity controls offer enhanced playability and expressiveness.

With these remarkable new features, VSM IV empowers you to create the perfect sound bed for your next track.


Craft Hybrid Sound Beds

VSM IV contains a wealth of sounds from 46 classic and rare machines.

These range from the first commercial string ensembles (Eminent 310 & Freeman String Symphonizer) to the highly lauded Solina, Elka Rhapsody, Logan String Melody, Korg PE2000 and many more.

With the sheer amount of instruments captured within the VSM, it's simplicity itself to recreate those golden string machine tones from yesteryear.

However, with the VSM's comprehensive yet intuitive feature set, plus a two-layer option, it's now possible to craft your own hybrid patches, taking these sublime vintage tones into hitherto uncharted territory.

We have invited Robin Rimbaud (Scanner), Polydata, Lightbath and Noyzelab to craft unique presets alongside Dave Spiers, Chris Macleod, Graeme Rawson, Boudicca’s Bass Service and Tom Wolfe.
