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).

Orb Trumpets is a proof-of-concept release that is created entirely out of performances.

Recorded in Orb Studios in Austin, TX, the goal was to create a trumpet patch that took our Adventure-style programming techniques to a more natural-sounding level using samples derived from phrases.

It's trickier to program and hone, but the resulting fluidity is compelling.

Like Musical Sampling's larger orchestral releases, the Adventure-style programming requires no keyswitching.

For quicker notes, you're going to want to play within the 1-100 velocity range.

For longer notes, 101-127 provides a slightly broader attack.

Switching between the two provides an effective approximation of how brass players tend to shape certain notes within a variety of phrases.

Tuning was lightly done to taste instead of destructively tuning it with software.

Musical Sampling retained the natural biases in intonation up the range/dynamics while pulling in the more squirrely notes, resulting in a more natural temperament.


  • Two-trumpet section
  • Keyswitch-less "Adventure" programming
  • Two velocity-sensitive attack types
  • Entirely performance-sourced sampling
  • Tighter studio recordings
  • Hand-tuned to taste - no destructive tuning
  • Adjustable reverb of custom hall impulse
  • Recorded in 48khz 24-bit


  • Adventure Workhorse
  • Adventure (FFF Sus Layer)
  • Stac & Stacmo (VEL Switching)
  • Stac & Stacmo (MW Switching)
  • No Filter versions of above

The Adventure Workhorse patch is great for most trumpet-writing needs with a dynamic range going from mezzo-piano to fortissimo.

The Adventure (FFF Sus Layer) patch includes an additional sustain layer at the top of the dynamic range where the players went properly ham with the volume.

For both Stac & Stacmo patches, release the notes quickly to activate the release samples.

For the VEL Switching patch, the mod wheel controls dynamics and playing velocities 1-100 will trigger staccatissimo samples while 101-127 will trigger staccato samples.

For the MW Switching patch, velocity controls the dynamics while the mod wheel allows you to switch between staccatissimo (down) and staccato (up).

The No Filter folder patches are for the rare few whose DAW setups may be a bit sensitive to certain Kontakt filters (CPU spikes and such).

This library is recorded relatively dry but treats well to external reverb setups. Slap an early reflection plugin then pipe that puppy into your favorite hall verb!
