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).

A Solid Foundation

When solid or natural sounding bass is a requirement in your recording projects, Monofilter provides the foundation for real power and definition. Bring transparent solidity to your bass; sharpen, define and align for the tightest mix.

Monofilter defines the center of your bass, so easily lost through stereo effects processing, synth sound generation, unwanted phase inconsistencies and live recording microphone bleed. Market-leading features give accurate control over stereo spread, transition and phase alignment, with precise visual feedback in a tactile interface that lets you grab the applied stereo envelope and manipulate it directly - without using abstract parameters and knobs.


Trusted By Producers

With presets for every situation and intuitive controls for fine-tuning to perfection, Monofilter anchors your bass with ease, while retaining the perceived spatial characteristics of the original sound.

  • Independent mono & stereo trim
  • Stereo spectrum analysis
  • Zero Latency option
  • Linear Phase option
  • HQ mode
  • Phase correlation control

Detailed Control

Monofilter offers powerful fine-tuning of your low-end sounds and their interaction with higher frequencies. The plug-in's highly tweakable parameters include a high pass filter, plus independent width control of user-defined high and low frequencies.

These width controls range from completely mono at their minimum point, to completely unchanged at their maximum. The changes are clearly displayed in an easily intuitive stereo width envelope.


Automatic Phase Alignment

Stereo effects which use phase shifting can cause cancellations and superpositions of certain frequencies when played back in mono. Monofilter includes a Phase control which can correct phase imbalance below its threshold frequency by adjusting the phase of the L and R components being summed.

This function has an auto mode which can be especially useful for input signals with a dynamic phase shift.


For Mixing and Mastering

With multiple algorithm settings, you can easily choose the most appropriate for the task at hand, including zero-latency for recording and linear-phase for general mixing. Switch in HQ mode for ultimate definition during mastering.

Monofilter becomes especially useful when mastering for vinyl. Vinyl has difficulty reproducing stereo information in the low frequencies, and wide stereo frequencies in the bass can cause the needle to jump upon playback, so the track has to be cut at a lower level to compensate.


For Live and Recording

Monofilter's Zero Latency algorithm has been designed with low CPU usage in mind, making it ideal for live and recording applications where low latency is essential. The 'link' control can be used to switch all Monofilter instances to the same algorithm simultaneously.

In a live context, you can use Monofilter to maintain even power distribution and to reduce the width of hard-panned effects. This can be important in larger venues where many audience members' listening experience may be dominated by a single speaker stack, leaving them unable to experience the full stereo image.
