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).

Finally, a gate that actually does what a gate was always supposed to do.

First and foremost, the job of an audio gate is to let the target audio events through unaffected, and only attenuate the unwanted signal.

In SuperGate, like any other gate, you have two jobs: find and isolate the target sound, and determine when to trigger the gate.

Unlike other gates, SuperGate lets you customize the gate attack and release gain curves precisely to the sound you are isolating, as you listen, while visually referencing our specialized WYSIWYG detector display.

Further, the gate curve you build is not applied as a set of dynamic expander parameters, but a programmed set of sample-by-sample instructions defining the gain structure and duration of the Attack-Hold-Release gate envelope itself.

When the trigger point is reached during playback, this set of instructions modifies the samples describing the target sound, thereby applying the gate.

Applying the gain curves in this way completely avoids aliasing artifacts, the interpolation stages required to correct for them, and the modulation and smearing effects that degrade the gain transition.

The audible advantage of this approach is immediately apparent as you work with the processor.

The Open and Close gate curves are applied with perfect repeatability as if they were copy/pasted onto the audio stream at the trigger point (which is in fact exactly the case), and all the minute variations of each audio event which provide feel and personality can come through the gate completely untouched.
