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).

Featuring six meticulously sampled basses from his collection, multi-instrumentalist, Dan Dean fuses his sought-after tone and playing style with his deep knowledge of sample-based instruments.

The result is a diverse, record-ready collection of basses that embody his signature sound.

Adjust to Taste

Each bass features its own elegant and intuitive user interface.

Key performance controls are easily accessible providing control over pitch, decay and release times, noise values, glide, and other core parameters.

Dial in your sound in mere seconds.

Plug In

Add character and punch with the flick of a switch.

Several amplifiers have been carefully modeled to complement and add depth to the range of basses.

Options at your fingertips include: Vintage, Round, Wooden, Subtle, Classic, Acoustic, and Modern.

Get Processing

A separate FX page offers a wide range of processing options.

This includes a dedicated EQ panel offering various high, mid, and low shaping options plus 4 independent FX slots.

Each slot can be loaded with your choice of compressor, chorus, distortion, phaser, filter, delay, or reverb module.

An FX master knob is available on the performance page allowing you to dial in as much or as little as you wish.

Six Rare & Exquisitely Modified Bass Guitars

6 basses from Dan's personal collection were sampled by the man himself to bring you this instrument.

Here you'll find the clear, clean sounds of the Alembic Spoiler, the resonant and growly Alembic Fretless, the balanced, subtle Fender Precision, the deep, barky Fender Telecaster, the classic jazz bass tone of the Lull Jazz and the versatile, punchy Washburn Fretless bass guitar.

Over 100 Presets

If you're looking for quick access to a specific style, tone, or effect - the factory presets have you covered!

Dan Dean Essential Bass ships with over 100 carefully crafted presets offering anything from a subtle chorus to a gnarly distortion.

Ultra Realism

To further enhance realism several performance articulations have been added.

Harmonics can be triggered per note with the mod wheel while other articulations can be triggered by key switches to maximize the playable range.

This includes a selection of slides over a variety of ranges.
