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).


Get the Authentic Sound of The World's Most Famous Rock & Roll Studio

The Sound City Studios plugin lets you produce music in one of the most famous recording studios in history - including the same room, mics, iconic console, and outboard gear - as heard on classic records from Nirvana, Metallica, Fleetwood Mac, Tom Petty, Rage Against the Machine, and more.

UAD Sound City Studios lets you add the vibe and character of this legendary space to your drums, guitars, vocals, synths and more - right in your own bedroom or home studio.



Immerse Yourself in a Historic Room

Sound City's Studio A is the birthplace of hundreds of hit records.

Voiced with original multitrack recordings cut at Sound City Studios, UA expertly captured the distinct "warts and all" character - with historical setup guidance from engineers who used it everyday - so you can easily put your productions in the same space where magic was made.


Easily Find Your Sweet Spot

Simply choose your source - vocals, drums, guitar, ensembles, or piano - and get proven room and mic setups, from the big reflective sound used on Nirvana's Nevermind to Tom Petty's intimate "wood" corner.

You can even re-mic your guitars with a selection of perfectly placed cabinets and room mics.


Reposition Vintage Mics with Dynamic Room Modeling

Go far beyond historic setups and customize your space by moving a stunning collection of classic condenser and ribbon mics from AKG, Neumann, and RCA - in realtime for authentic room sounds beyond the original chart-topping positions.


Explore a Legendary Custom British Console

The centerpiece of Studio A since the early '70s, Sound City Studios' custom-made console artfully colored everything that ran through it.

Now you can get the same satisfying analog character and tone with perfect emulations of a vintage British 3-band EQ and bus compressor on all your sources.


Crush, Gate, or Add "Air" with Secret Weapon Compression

Along with the legendary limiting of the iconic Rev E 1176 compressor, Sound City Studios gives you the first-ever emulation of the Dolby A301* noise reduction system - a multiband EQ/limiter used and abused by Sound City Studios' engineers - so you can get the same glossy-to-hyped background vocals and explosive drum sounds heard on decades of hit records.


Add Chart-Topping Ambience with Iconic Echo Chamber

Put the finishing touch on your tracks with the same natural, open-sounding reverb used by everyone from Queens of the Stone Age, Phoebe Bridgers, and Death Cab for Cutie and season your ambient space using perfectly placed pairs of dynamic, small-diaphragm condenser, and ribbon mics.
