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).


Endless, Lush, Dub-Style Delays and Psychedelic Spring Reverb

In 1973, Roland created the RE-201 Space Echo - a tape delay/spring reverb system that created warm, warped, unabashedly analog echo effects.

From subtle tape textures to mindbending chaos, this iconic contraption can be heard on classic Pink Floyd and David Bowie, to seminal dub sides from King Tubby, Scientist, and Lee "Scratch" Perry.

The Galaxy Tape Echo plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces is an exhaustive emulation of the iconic, legendary '70s unit, and expertly captures the physical behavior of the inspiring hardware, down to its distortion, musical wow and flutter, sci-fi pitch-shifting, and real-time tweakability.



Features

  • Add subtle tape delay or colorful cacophony to drums, vocals, guitars, and synths
  • Harness distortion, wow and flutter, and pitch shifting, for organic time-based effects
  • Use wild-self-oscillation for creative sci-fi textures and moods
  • Employ the ambient shimmer of spring reverb on any source

Included Versions

UAD Native - Runs on your Mac or PC without UA hardware (AAX, AU, VST3)
Apollo Realtime & UAD-2 - Runs accelerated on Apollo interfaces and UAD‑2 hardware (AAX, AU, VST2)


Space is the Place

Universal Audio has painstakingly captured every quirk and characteristic of this complex device.

For example, just like the hardware, you can drive the input hard to add hair to a vocal, or widen a drum bus with fat analog character.

Tweak the controls and harness seemingly infinite wow and flutter and pitch shifting combinations - perfect for energizing electric guitars.

From rockabilly slapback to hazey trails of swirling delay, the Galaxy Tape Echo is a secret sauce for any source in any genre.


A Faithful Reproduction - Warts and All

The Galaxy Tape Echo keeps the controls of the original hardware, and adds some for modern workflows.

Use the original Mode Selector for various head combinations, Repeat Rate for timing control, and Intensity for repeats and self-oscillation.

The Echo/Normal switch mutes the signal to the echo, while global Bass and Treble let you season to taste.

New features include Tempo Sync, Pan controls for reverb and delay, and Tape Select, for varying delay timbres.

By capturing the eccentricities of the original, and adding enhancements along the way, the Galaxy Tape Echo is a tool of infinite creativity.
