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).


An Era-Defining Digital Reverb

From the moment it was unleashed in 1978, the Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb - with its tactile, slider-based controller and famously lush reverb tail - single-handedly defined the sound of an entire era.

From Talking Heads' Remain In Light to U2's The Unforgettable Fire, the Lexicon 224 remains one of the most popular digital reverb units of all time.

Now you can track and mix with this singular piece of audio history with the Lexicon 224 Reverb plug-in.



Features

  • Track and mix with the legendary Lexicon 224 Digital Reverb, using the same algorithms as the original hardware
  • Employ eight classic reverb programs and one chorus program on drums, vocals, guitars, and more
  • Use the Plate and Concert programs for vintage '80s sounds
  • Mix with presets from famous Lexicon 224 users Chuck Zwicky (Prince), Kevin Killen (Peter Gabriel), and others

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, and VST3)

A Breakthrough in Emulation

Using the exact algorithms and control processor code from the original hardware, the Lexicon 224 plug-in precisely captures all eight legendary reverb programs and the chorus program - based on the Lexicon 224's final and hard-to-find firmware version 4.4.

The Lexicon 224 plug-in also incorporates the original hardware's input transformers and early AD/DA 12-bit gain stepping converters.



Easy Navigation

Every parameter from the original hardware is present in the Lexicon 224 plugin and exposed as dedicated sliders and buttons.

Lexicon's distinctive Bass/Mid "split decay" adjustments and Crossover control set the highly tunable reverb image, while the Treble Decay rolls off high frequencies.

Use the Depth control to adjust the distance between source and reverb, while Predelay produces a short delay between the sound source and the onset of reverberation.

Diffusion affects how quickly the echo density in the reverb builds up over time.


Modeled to the Last Detail

For total authenticity, the UA-exclusive System Noise control enables or disables the inherent dynamic system noise of the original Lexicon 224 hardware - removing the modeled gain stepping, parameter zippering, and quiescent noise.

Clicking the "Open" text to the right of the display panel exposes several hidden controls, including Input/Output gain and Pitch Shift, and even a selectable "Bug Fix" mode which enables/disables historical bug fixes from the Hall B and Chorus programs.

Taken together, the Lexicon 224 plug-in is the world's most authentic model of a true studio classic.
