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 Truly Special Piano

Chroma - Upright Piano stands out, not just because of its rich history and impeccable restoration, but because of its unique character and emotional depth that set it apart.

The journey began a few years ago in a small studio, where our team initially focused on recording a grand piano.

However, an unassuming upright piano in the same studio captured our attention.

Though we were committed to recording the grand, the upright's distinct sound and emotional resonance left a lasting impression.

We just had to record it and share it with the world!

The Chroma Upright Piano isn't just another virtual instrument - it's a culmination of passion, serendipity, and meticulous craftsmanship.

  • Warm, mid-focused tonal character with rich low-end
  • Multiple unique articulations including felt, muted, plucked, flageolet, and bowed
  • Recorded with a diverse array of microphones for a comprehensive sound
  • Unique core engine that both recreates the piano’s original sonority and also creates new and abstract soundscapes
  • 27 velocity layers for nuanced and dynamic playability
  • 91 presets designed to inspire and enhance creativity

Crafted For Cinematic Intimacy

What makes Chroma - Upright Piano truly special?

It's a century-old gem from the small, renowned piano house, lovingly restored with new strings, felts, and mechanics.

This meticulous restoration ensured it not only maintained its tune exceptionally well but also preserved its authentic, vintage character.

However, we haven't stopped there, we've spent hours melding our coding expertise with this acoustic gem to bring you a classic piano with a ton of modern features.


Emotional Depth and Character

Unlike other virtual upright pianos, this instrument exudes a raw, organic quality.

The soundboard's resonance adds a layer of emotion, making it perfect for intimate and expressive music.


Versatility

This upright piano isn’t limited to one genre.

It transitions effortlessly from delicate, introspective pieces to dynamic cinematic scores and contemporary rock and pop mixes.

Its ability to blend seamlessly into various styles sets it apart.


Authentic Restoration

The upright piano has been meticulously restored by a professional, ensuring that it retains its original charm while offering modern playability.

This level of detail in restoration and sampling is unmatched, providing a genuine and immersive playing experience.

Offering all the advantages of owning an instrument like this without many of the downsides.


Meticulous Sampling

The upright’s sound profile is distinctly different from a grand piano.

In order to capture the mojo and character of this upright we've sampled 27 dynamic layers to ensure all the most authentic reproduction of this very special piano.


Ease of Mixing

In a mix, grand pianos can sometimes dominate, requiring extensive EQ adjustments.

In contrast, the Chroma Upright Piano sits naturally in a mix, enhancing the overall sound without overpowering it.

Its ability to blend quickly into various mixes makes it an invaluable tool for producers.


Precision Recording For Sonic Depth

Chroma Upright Piano offers musicians and producers an authentic, versatile, and emotionally rich tool that stands out in a crowded market.

It's also the ideal companion to the Chroma Grand Piano, offering a different sound to include in your musical productions.

Whether you're creating heartfelt, intimate music, pop or rock hits, or powerful cinematic scores, this upright piano will bring unparalleled character and mojo to your compositions.

We went beyond the ordinary, recording a range of articulations that push Chroma - Upright Piano beyond the traditional piano.

From the soft, ethereal quality of felt notes to the resonant, harmonic richness of flageolets, and even the visceral, hands-on experience of plucked strings and bowed tones, this library provides an expansive toolkit for the adventurous composer.

Add mechanical detail and control sounds like Note On, Note Off and Pedal for an even more realistic feel.
