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).

Recorded On Analog Tape At Electrical Audio

The drums were sampled at Electrical Audio, the legendary Chicago recording studio owned by renowned engineer Steve Albini, and one of the last recording studios to primarily use analog tape as a recording medium.

The samples were captured using high-quality digital converters, then passed through the immaculately-maintained Studer A820 tape machine at Electrical Audio for authentic tape character.

Built-in Mixer & Effects

Sixteen individually-controllable channels with full bleed control and 20 studio-quality effects allow you to mix the audio just as if you had recorded it yourself.

Load mix-ready presets created by Kurt Ballou using the internal mixer and effects - no additional plug-ins required!

Drag-and-drop your own custom WAV files directly into the instrument to augment the sounds in the library.

Advanced Key Mapping

Our customizable key mapping options make working with alternate MIDI mappings fast and easy.

Working with MIDI from another drum library? No problem!

Pre-configured mapping presets are available for most other drum libraries.

Our advanced mapping system ensures that all articulations match perfectly.

Your days of struggling with MIDI mapping issues between different software products are over!

Extensive Microphone Selection

The entire drum kit was captured in stunning detail with 21 individual microphones, including two sets of stereo overheads and four room mic options.

Blend the microphones using our included mixer and studio-quality effects, or route each microphone to a separate channel on your DAW for further processing.

The options are endless!

Optimized For Electronic Drums

We've included MIDI maps for most popular models of electronic drum kits, along with a "Electronic Kit Setup Wizard" to make setting up your electronic kit a breeze!

Even inexpensive electronic drum kits can be taken to new levels of playability and sound quality when paired with our groundbreaking humanization engine and advanced e-kit features.

Integrated MIDI Groove Player

Not a drummer? All of our MIDI grooves are recorded using electronic drum kits to preserve the human timing and feel of a real drum performance.

Audition grooves using the integrated groove player, then drag-and-drop directly into your DAW.

The grooves will automatically conform to the song tempo. It's like having a real drummer inside your computer!
