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).

Four Legendary Reverb Sounds One Easy to Use Plugin

Relab LX480 Essentials not only faithfully captures the sound of the classic 480L reverb hardware, but makes getting that legendary sound faster and easier than ever before. Transform tracks with the rich complex textures, and lush spacious reverb tails that only the Relab LX480 can deliver.

Introducing Relab LX480 Essentials

For decades, the 480L has been the standard by which all other reverb processors have been measured.

With Relab LX480 Essentials, now you can bring FOUR of the most famous reverb sounds from the legendary 480L - natively to your mixes.

Why Choose Relab LX480 Essentials?

  • Get the sound of four of the most famous presets from the original 480L hardware natively in your DAW
  • Experiment with legendary 480L sounds with the "Plate", "Ambience", "Hall", and "Room" algorithms.
  • Create almost any space with tails that are deeper, longer and smoother.
  • Keep your mixes clean and clutter-free with built-in hi and low pass filtering
  • Benefit from an improved workflow based on simple key reverb settings and features.

Outstanding Audio Quality

Dial-in large rooms, lush halls, shiny plates, and realistic ambiences with uncompromising and unparalleled sound quality.

Built-In High and Low Frequency Cutoffs

Sometimes the high and low-frequency build-up in reverbs can get a little out of control. Use the built-in high and low pass filters to quickly tame the top and bottom frequencies of the reverb to keep your mixes clean and clutter-free.

Fast and Easy Workflow

Quickly tweak and sculpt your own sound with ease. With no hidden settings, all of the available parameter settings are visible right in front of you, resulting in an intuitive workflow that is fast and easy.

The Reverb Used on Countless Classic Recordings

The original 480L hardware reverb was introduced in 1986 and has been used on countless chart-topping recordings. For over 3 decades it has been the go-to reverb for top music producers and recording engineers worldwide. The 480L has been the standard by which all other reverb processors have been measured.

Based on A True All Original "Golden Unit"

For the Relab LX480 Essentials, we modelled one of the very best of the 480s ever – a true "golden unit".

Relab was lucky enough to acquire one of the original 480s from the Hit Factory in New York when they closed their doors.

You can't even begin to imagine the list of mixes on which this unit was used!

This studio was home to sessions by John Lennon, Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé, U2, Michael Jackson... The list is endless.

It doesn't get much more perfect or"golden" than that!

And with the Relab LX480 Essentials you can now get that very same legendary reverb sound - natively in your DAW.

Four Unmistakable Reverb Sounds at Your Fingertips

Based on FOUR of Relab's best-in-class reverb algorithm emulations of one of the most widely-used algorithmic reverbs ever built, you can now transform your tracks with the rich complex textures, and lush spacious reverb tails that only the Relab LX480 can deliver.

Fat Plate

What the 480 was famous for - lush, rich, shiny plates without any mix clutter. Designed to emulate the sounds of metal plates, with a relatively bright, colored sound. Great for vocals and percussion.

Medium Hall

One of the most traditional reverb sounds, this classic favorite was designed to emulate a real medium-sized hall. Great for giving tracks a sense of belonging to the same space with a smooth and even decay.

Small Ambience

Designed to become a part of the direct sound, the ambience algorithm is very effective in adding distance to a very dry-sounding track. Great for really short drum rooms, and for an impression that is more felt than heard.

Large Wood Room

Designed to emulate colored-sounding spaces, the room is typically less noticeable than a Hall. This algorithm can be effectively used to create the sense of space, without being overtly distinguishable. Great for film, TV, and all genres of music production.
