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).


Muted Solo Strings

  • First violin, second violin, viola, cello and bass
  • Soulful, nuanced performances, played with mutes
  • Recorded in the controlled ambience of the Silent Stage
  • Updated and optimized for the Vienna Synchron Player
  • Production-ready sound "out of the box"

This Collection is the sequel to SYNCHRON-ized Solo Strings, featuring the instruments first violin, second violin, viola, cello and bass played "con sordino".

Mutes reduce the transmission of energy from the strings to the body of the instrument, resulting in a different structure of overtones and harmonics that soften or dampen the sound.

Only specially crafted mutes have been used for the recordings in order to perfectly fit to the bridge of each instrument, and to achieve a homogenous sound across all players.

The beautiful and nuanced performances, originally recorded for the VI Collection Solo Strings II, were re-edited, enhanced and optimized for the capabilities of the Vienna Synchron Player to achieve improvements in terms of authenticity, usability and flexibility.

The instruments were recorded in our second studio, the Silent Stage, a recording facility with a tight, controlled ambience specifically designed and built for recording samples.

The short ambience of this room allows for placement of the instruments in any virtual acoustic environment.


Vienna Synchron Player

Using the Synchron Player's reverberation and placement presets you can put each player at various spots in the large hall of Vienna's own scoring stage, Synchron Stage Vienna.

You can combine left, center and right placements of soloists or orchestra chairs with options such as close, classic, and distant.

This way they perfectly blend with any other product of the Synchron Series, resulting in a production-ready sound "out of the box".

But these solo instruments are much more flexible.

By turning off the internal convolution and algorithmic reverb of the Vienna Synchron Player the players can be placed in any virtual acoustic environment, from living rooms to concert halls, from the authentic natural rooms provided by Vienna MIR Pro 3D to artificial reverb and delay effects.


Further Improvements

Our team of sound editors recreated a perfectly balanced and pristine-sounding sample database. The meticulously balanced volume levels of the recordings guarantee seamless note transitions when moving from one articulation to the next.

Velocity crossfading has been further optimized for extra-smooth volume changes.

All legato transitions have been considerably improved, and the new release sample technology greatly increases the flexibility and usability of many articulations.

Notes such as détachés, fortepianos, crescendos and diminuendos can be played at various lengths and always trigger the correct release sounds.

This way, for instance, you can use the first part of crescendo notes as soft portato articulations, or the first part of diminuendo notes as an espressivo technique with a slight decrescendo that sounds very musical and natural.

If you have installed SYNCHRON-ized Solo Strings, the "Merged" Presets combine "senza sordino" and "con sordino" articulations, making it easy to switch and keep an overview of all available articulations.
