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).

Passive EQ, Beyond the Original Hardware

The Gem EQP is the most realistic and accurate emulation of three iconic Passive EQ units, in a single plugin.

In addition to offering the most faithful emulation available today, it allows you to extend the original tone capabilities by adding features that are not available on the analog units.

  • Emulations inspired by Pultec EQP-1A, MEQ-5, and HLF 3C
  • Integrated programmable Clipper for punchy tones
  • Frequency response graphic display for full control of the unit
  • Obsessively accurate recreation of the original harmonic generation, with the Overloud's Harmonic Matching technique
  • Resizable graphic interface
  • Selectable high oversampling mode
  • Internal operating level calibration
  • Multilevel undo-redo

Three Units in One Plugin

Low & High

The Low & High unit is the most know one: it features two bands with individual boost and attenuation parameters as well as an additional treble attenuation control.

The attenuation parameter is centered on a different frequency than the boost, allowing to create dips after the boosted frequency.

This creates deep basses and a very in-focus and smooth top-end.


The MID unit offers two boosting bands and one attenuation band.

The original circuit is fully passive and has two transformers: one at the input and one at the output, which add harmonics to the transients.

In addition to its unique frequency response, the MID module delivers a super-musical coloration to your tracks.

High & Low Cut

Another fully passive circuit allows you to select the bandwidth in a very musical way.

Beyond the Original Hardware

EQP extends the features of the original hardware and combines the flexibility of the digital world with the character of analog processing.

Built-In Clipper

With the built-in programmable clipper, you can enhance the transients and add punch to the recordings.

EQ Display

You can monitor the real frequency response of each EQ module or of the whole unit.

Unit Calibration

You can select the unit calibration to change the harmonic generation.

Pushing the Emulation to A New Level

EQP emulates the most desired EQ modules in the history of recording and mixing.

Their warm, fat, and rich sound, with an incredibly detailed midrange, still excite even the most experienced engineers who are mixing with it.

The original tone shaping circuits are based on passive design, which gives them a unique tonal character.

However, in order to compensate for the loss of level of the passive circuit, the hardware units are equipped with an input transformer and an output tube amplifier, which creates very musical harmonics as well as a deep and warm bass sensation.

This is where most of the digital emulations fail. The EQP uses Overloud's unique Harmonic Matching technology in order to recreate the original "coloration" in a way that has never been possible before.
