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).

String Central is a stack of 13 beautiful layers, sampled over the entire fretboard of incredible classical instruments.

A virtuoso cellist brings the depth and richness of the cello in 13 textures including Staccato, Forte, Tremolo, Legato, Pizzicato, and a few vintage synth strings, all tracked meticulously to preserve the sonic integrity of the wood and string.

The cello is a favorite instrument at Nightfox Audio.

With ribbon mics, tube preamps, and large diaphragm condenser mics, they meticulously sampled the entire fretboard, at 3-5 unique velocities.

It was sampled with pizzicato, tremolo, long sweeping tones, unpredictable arpeggios, and short staccato hits. Each note is unique, each velocity is unique.

Nightfox also love the synth string tones of the '70s, so they sampled two favorites from that era.

Use all 13 of these textures as solo instruments or blend them in infinite configurations to create brand new hybrid tones.
