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).


A One Of A Kind Plugin

Sordina is an audio effect plugin that authentically replicates orchestral instrument mutes.

Using models derived from real world recordings, Sordina allows you to effortlessly apply brass and string mutes to enhance any audio source.

This serves as an excellent means to broaden the capabilities of your existing virtual instrument collection or infuse additional richness into a live recording.


In addition to conventional use, Sordina allows you to explore options outside what is possible in the real world. Ever wondered how a bassoon would sound with a trumpet's harmon mute? Now you can find out!

With over 260 meticulously crafted models, Sordina offers a comprehensive toolkit for your creative endeavours.

Beyond traditional mutes, Sordina also includes emulations of effects like col legno, sul ponticello, and flautando, adding a layer of sophistication to your musical palette.


Sordina has a clean, easy to use interface that helps you get started really quickly. Just insert the plugin on an instrument or audio track, select a mute, and tweak the volume.

For more detailed control over the sound there is a built-in parametric equalizer, saturation control, and mix knob.

Real-time feedback is delivered through on-screen meters and a spectrum analyzer, offering a dynamic visualization of how Sordina is shaping the incoming audio.



Multitude of Mutes

Sordina contains over 260 different mute models. Of these 178 are for brass instruments, 86 are for strings, and 3 are for saxophone.

The brass mutes encompass a comprehensive selection of standard options, including practice, various harmon stem configurations, cup, bucket, and straight mutes, among others.

Additionally, there are unique and more exotic choices such as pixie, derby, plunger, and felt mutes.

For strings, we have an array of conventional orchestral mutes and practice mutes. Additionally, we provide specialized models tailored for specific effects like col legno, sul ponticello, and flautando.

All the models have been thoughtfully categorized within a three-tier preset browser, simplifying the process of locating your desired choice.

A full list of all the mute models included with Sordina can be found in the user manual.


Wah Wah

Mutes such as the trumpet's harmon and plunger include a playable wah-wah control.

When a compatible mute is selected the on-screen Wah slider is activated and can be controlled in real-time using host automation or a MIDI controller.
