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).

Hoard Picked Acoustic is a versatile and agile legato guitar library meticulously crafted for Kontakt.

Like Musical Sampling's Hoard Mandolin library, the goal was to create an instrument capable of handling a wide range of guitar melodies seamlessly, eliminating the necessity for keyswitching.

The Master Legato Main patch is a versatile workhorse, incorporating multiple legato articulations: Natural legato, slide to pluck (with CC slide speed control), hammer-on/off, and slide without plucking - all seamlessly switchable via velocity control.

Additionally, we provided a distinctive palm-muted legato patch with its own unique flavor.

The Performance Sustains patch is equally significant, showcasing five velocity levels, including the two softest ones for palm-muted and slightly palm-muted performances, significantly broadening the range of phrasing possibilities.

To enhance the authenticity of your guitar tracks, the instrument includes a comprehensive, yet subtle, fret noises patch, along with a room tone, breath, and movement patch - all designed to infuse character, warmth, and humanity into your compositions.

For added versatility, tuned and doubler versions of several patches are included to cater to your double-tracking requirements.


  • Agile and expressive legato acoustic guitar
  • Three legato articulations activated by velocity
  • Automatic down/upstroke legato
  • Natural temperament
  • Adjustable reverb of custom hall impulse
  • Recorded in 48khz, 24bit
  • 2.8 GB compressed NCW format

Master Legato Main

This is the main legato patch which contains three different legato types; each individually activated by velocity.

Velocities 41-90 is the primary range which uses the natural plucked legato articulation - your bread and butter.

Velocities 91-127 activates the hammer-on/pull-off articulation (up to a major 2nd).

Velocities 1-40 is your slide into pluck articulation, which is exactly that; a string slide to the target note which is then plucked (from a minor 3rd up to an octave).

You can control the speed of the slide with the mod wheel.

Up to a major 2nd, this legato velocity activates the slide no pluck articulation.

Room Breath & Movement

This patch incorporates a room tone sample, essentially capturing the untouched noise floor.

It's an excellent means to introduce warmth to exposed guitar tracks.

Additionally, this patch includes subtle inhale/exhale and nuanced body movement noises, enhancing the overall presence of your composition.

Tuned & Doubler Patches

These variations have been hand-tuned to suit specific situations as needed.

The doubler patches are designed to serve as the secondary guitar for your left/right-channel double-tracking requirements.

Chugs Scrapes & Slaps

You can achieve a convincing muted strumming effect by combining the short chug samples with the Muted Sustains patch, as demonstrated in the "Prism" music demo at 0:28.
