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).

Modeled from a Series 80B Console, the Trident Series 80B plugin accurately reproduces the classic warm tones, presence, and punch of the Trident 80B Series equalizers that are extremely popular with today’s studio engineers. Based on the highly regarded Trident 80B Range console of the seventies, this sought-after equalizer can now be enjoyed by today’s DAW engineers in a plugin format.

Trident Audio's plugin software models make an impressive addition to any digital audio workstation (DAW) application, on either Mac or PC. Available in VST3, AAX Native, AU formats.

The Trident Digital Editions embrace the essence of what made Trident analog equipment classics. With warm tones, punch, unmatchable presence, the Series 80B is faithfully recreated for the digital world using ground-breaking modeling techniques, and our new AWA (Advanced Wave Analysis), Trident’s proprietary DSP engine.

Taking full advantage of this signal processing technology ensures that every Trident Plugin is among the most efficient and least CPU-demanding Plugins available today. Meaning multiple instances of Trident Plugins may be run at any time, with the least possible negative effect on your computer's performance.

The Trident Digital Edition Series

In today’s recording environments, many in the recording world are working entirely within the digital domain. We believe working in the digital domain should not come at a cost for those who choose to work with some of the most iconic outboard gear in music production history.

With a rich analog recording history of over 50 years, Trident Audio Developments are perfectly suited to offer the new Trident Digital Editions Plugins, which bridge that gap between analog and digital recording, while accurately recreating the historic analog gear of yesterday for the digital domain. The Trident Digital Editions, give those the opportunity to work with the iconic gear that produced so many classic hit records.
