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:!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:!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).

Audio Editing Solution for Professionals

SOUND FORGE Pro 17 Suite is here. This professional software package for recording, editing, and processing high-quality audio files includes a range of powerful plug-ins like the brand-new Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 and Melodyne Essential and sets a new standard in the field of audio.

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8

SpectraLayers Pro 8 is the most advanced audio spectrum editor on the market and transforms sound into a unique visual world of multidimensional audio data.

With this visual approach and the extensive toolkit in SpectraLayers, it's easy to rearrange, extract and optimize sounds in ways never before imagined.

The new version 8 is the ideal complement to the Sound Forge Pro 16 Suite with its improved tools and workflows.

It allows automatic, artificial intelligence-driven, processes across multiple layers to provide the best possible results.

Unmixing Layers

With new tools driven by AI technology, audio tracks can now be unmixed in Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8.

This means that music can be split and isolated into individual layers.

Extract vocals, piano, bass, drums, and other instruments from stems, or separate sound, noise, and transient layers.

Use the new unmixing function as a creative tool for remixing new songs.

Integration of External DAWs

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 can seamlessly access editing effects from other audio applications, meaning it can be used with a selected audio file right away.

All edits you make are synchronized too.

Advanced Selection System

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 offers incomparable precision when it comes to selecting sections of the audio spectrum.

Create user-defined 2D fade masks at the edge of a selection, model fades on a visual basis, and view all resulting changes in amplitude in real time.

Apply VST 3 Effects

The latest VST 3 plug-in support now enables you to apply additional VST 3 plug-ins to individual layers, as well as in standalone or ARA mode.

Apply interesting VST 3 effects on the spectral layer and discover entirely new options for creative editing.

Mixing with Spectral Casting

Use the frequency spectrum of one layer as a cast or mold for carving an impression directly into the spectrum of a second layer.

Spectral Casting/Spectral Molding opens up unexplored new worlds of audio processing possibilities.

Sound Design with Spectral Molding

Spectral Molding offers an extensive bandwidth of sounds.

The technology enables users to transfer spectral data between recordings and create an entirely new and different sound aesthetic.

For instance, you can give a guitar recording the acoustic texture of vocals.

Cleaning with Acoustic Fingerprints

Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 is able to create exact prints of noise interference and then suppress them or remove them completely from the track.

This technology offers you absolute precision for achieving crystal-clear audio results.

ARA2 Plug-in

The ARA2 plug-in integrates Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 directly in SOUND FORGE Pro 16.

Once set up, Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 behaves just like an independent part of the DAW and integrates essential components of the host DAW such as track colors and other elements.

Celemony Melodyne 5 Essential

Melodyne essential is the perfect complement to the audio editing functions offered by SOUND FORGE Pro 16 and with its built-in ARA2 and AAX support, Steinberg SpectraLayers Pro 8 is equally so.

Discover the legendary tool for precise audio correction.

Vintage Effects Suite

Reproduce the naturally full and warm sound of analog tools in an authentic way.


Ecox is a plug-in that emulates realistic tape echo sounds. You can reproduce the sound here in an authentic way that sounds as if different tape speeds were used to change the delay, with tracking variations and loss of high frequencies during tape feedback.


This filter has been developed to control frequency resonance for a modulation source. This enables you to create a characteristically analog sound and internal distortion. Cut-off frequency and resonance work together here to create synthesizer sweeps and creative drum loop distortion that sound anything but digital.


Corvex produces a refined sound tapestry of variations between analog chorus and flanger effects that goes beyond standard concepts. Give your instruments astounding acoustic depth, make them sound much fuller, or create new, multi-layered textures.

VariVerb II

Room for new ideas: Create the exact reverb effect you've been looking for.

VariVerb II offers more depth and more texture for your audio. The huge range of presets for drums, vocals, and guitars in this plug-in are based on a variety of algorithms and can be used not just for making improvements, but as the starting point for complex sound design.

Use VariVerb II to create reverb based on complex reflection pattern and various software models rather than on the basis of impulse responses. Create various effects with adjustable parameters such as room, plate, spring and non-linear reverb, all based on algorithmic calculations.


Vandal is a virtual guitar & bass amplifier with superb effects that lets you easily simulate any kind of guitar effect in a realistic way.
