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).

TAF 80s Hair High Gain is the TH-U Rig Library created by the legendary sound designer TheAmpFactory, based on the Orange Tree Studios collection of rare amplifiers, dedicated to the Hair Hard Rock style.

The library contains 40 Rigs and 18 patches captured from the following amplifiers:

  • Bogner XTC
  • Diezel Herbert
  • Engl E646
  • Engl Fireball
  • EVH 5150
  • Marshall Super Lead (1979)
  • Marshall JCM800 Hot Mod (1981)
  • Marshall Bluesbreaker
  • Marshall JMP 1959 HW
  • Marshall JMP MkII (1979)
  • Marshall JTM30
  • Mesa Boogie Blue Angel
  • Mesa Boogie Tremoverb
  • Mesa Boogie MkII (1984)
  • Music Man HD130
  • Marshall Jubilee (1987)
  • Orange OR 80 (1973)
  • Orange Thunderverb 200
  • Reinhardt Storm 33
  • Selmer Treble'n'Bass 50W (1964)
  • WEM Dominator

When we talk about Rock, we think of this era - the hair, the glamour, the wall of sound.

It had its prime, but is still sought after today! The Tone was big, juicy, had bite, and lots of overdrive!

This pack is aimed at capturing some of the legendary amps that were used in this era, big rock tones at your fingertips, from clean to scream, and everything in between.

In this pack the "WEM Dominator" as far as TAF is concerned is one of their most treasured amps. It was very much underestimated as it wasn't as loud as other manufacturers for this "loud" era, but the tone is just another level.

Capturing Technology

TH-U is the first amp simulator that includes both amp modeling and capturing technologies.

The Rig Models are created from real setups: the Overloud proprietary technology allows the capture of the response of an entire rig, including the nonlinear and dynamic response of the amplifier, the cabinet, the microphones, the mic preamplifier, and the room sound.

The Rig Player, integrated into TH-U, allows you to reproduce any nuance of the sampled rigs and to combine the models of different setups.
