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).

Cosmic Darkness

A journey into the future of sound turned dark and gritty fast.

Elysion's famous ensemble engine has been hijacked, augmented, and vaporized.

With the drifting cosmic remains, Dark Horizon molds the future into a dystopian atmosphere of massive basses, cosmic arps, and drifting pads.

Turn simple chords into unreal, nightmarish space-scapes, while moving the mod-wheel bends time and transports you into the dark, disparate corners of eldritch furies.

  • Dark Horizon is an earth-shattering bass-heavy synth built using synthesizers and a variety of sounds bent and warped into fascinating soundscapes and powerful low ends
  • Dark Horizon obliterates the subs but maintains a crisp and pristine sound
  • Dark Horizon is built from the same engine as Elysion, creating an even darker sound palette with new presets, themes, and effects
  • Play complex patterns with simple chords
  • 80 playable instruments

For Extraordinary and Dark Bass Sound

With a focus on dark, dirty bass sounds, Dark Horizon pushes levels and tones not yet explored by the Elysion series.

Our space engineer Tobias Menguser sent wavs into the far reaches of the cosmos, beyond the known universe, where only the terrifying nightmares and figments of reality lurk.

In those unknown places, the sounds were twisted and experimented upon, crafting a full sound palette of dark and low basses.

They mutated into growling instruments, screaming oscillations, and ground-shaking subs.

For Modern Producers and Score Composers

For ambient, modern electronic, and experimental music, Dark Horizon can bring new power into your work with its library of grinds and grooves.

For scoring and blockbusters, these sounds make for perfect tension-building underscore.

What's Included?

As the deep underbelly of the Elysion series, Dark Horizon is a powerful Kontakt instrument that resynthesizes orchestral sounds and sound FX along with a great variety of rare analog synths and FX boxes.

The resulting instruments are mind-crushing sounds, gut-wrenching themes, rhythmic arps, whirling pads, and a set of effects to push them even further beyond the imagination.

Ambient, Resynthesized, Cinematic

Dark Horizon pushes sounds into unrecognizable extremes, utilizing analog rack effects and extraordinary sound sources.

Use Dark Horizon as a scoring tool for any project that needs a dose of profound bass and gritty depth or use it as a really exceptional synth to create innovative melodies with outstanding sonic power.

Layered, Dirty, Powerful

With four layers of sounds and an onboard compressor, delay, and hall reverb, create unique and disturbing combinations for a truly original experience.

Each layer is linked to an independent arpeggiator and two pan engines, allowing you to easily create complex, evolving pads.

Sampling Redefined, Bursting with Expression and Variety

We recorded, sampled, and produced the sounds, treating them like acoustic instruments.

This results in an unimaginable dynamic and unprecedented sound. Integrated into our pathbreaking ensemble engine, Dark Horizon further expands our strongest composing lineup, together with Elysion 2 and The Orchestra.

A Whole New Experience

Dark Horizon is loaded with an abundance of exceptional instruments.

Together with the Ensemble Engine, the Motion Engine, and the Pan Engine, there are almost unlimited possibilities for creative sound development.

Maximize Your Creativity

Each category has its unique style and purpose, providing you with rhythmic elements, dark textures, or sounds that are perfect for playing melodies.

Poly Animations

Complex rhythms for chords that push the audio floor with movement and vibration.

The mod wheel modifies the arps and filters, increasing the tension, while introducing horn blasts, braahms, and drones.

Rhythmic Pulses

Low pulsing basses with complex arpeggiations reveal great dynamic range when the mod wheel is pushed, morphing the rhythms and raising the filters.

Mono Arpeggios

Legato arpeggios arranged in danceable grooves with the mod wheel pressing the frequencies and creating a much sharper tone.

Lowest Textures

Dark, tension-filled drones complimented by screeching impulses, filter swipes, and stellar reverb effects at the turn of the mod wheel.

Playable Sounds

Wide cosmic pads and gently gliding legatos, this set includes the bulk of the playable content.

The mod wheel releases all the built-up anger and tension as the frequencies push.
