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).

This second installment of the extremely detailed percussion sample recordings at Synchron Stage Vienna adds a new arsenal of fine instruments to the Synchron Series. As with the first collection, the instruments were captured at the large "Stage A" of Vienna Symphonic Library's own scoring stage with the same multi-microphone setup that makes their pristine sound extremely flexible.


Included Instruments:

  • 5 Timpani (Adams, C2–C#4, hit with a soft beater)
  • 10 Taikos (Kolberg, 8" to 53")
  • 6 Roto-toms (Kolberg, 6" to 16")
  • Bass drum 2 (Lefima 28")
  • Tam-tam 3 (Wuhan, 70 cm)
  • Burma gongs (Kolberg, C2 – C6)
  • 5 China gongs (Kolberg Peking Opera Gongs)
  • Vibraphone (Musser M55)
  • Crotales (Bergerault, C6 – C8)
  • Plate bells (Kolberg, C2 – C7)
  • 3 Temple bells
  • 2 Thundersheets
  • Wind machine
  • Rainmaker
  • 3 Ratchets
  • 2 Vibraslaps
  • 3 Slapsticks
  • Lion’s roar
  • Waldteufel
  • Log drums
  • 4 Anvils

All instruments include single strokes in many velocity layers and several round robins, rolls and effect articulations. For some instruments, rolls are available in two variants: “Static” rolls are recorded without changing dynamics and allow you to transition smoothly through velocity layers from pianissimo to fortissimo. "Dynamic" rolls were recorded with their dynamic changes (crescendos and diminuendos) performed over various lengths. You may release the key at any time - the individually adapted release samples will be triggered automatically.


Miking and Mixing

Every instrument was recorded using 12 microphones. You may select from four microphone positions (Standard Library) or seven different microphone positions (Full Library) and mix them to your liking, using the full-fledged mixer of the Vienna Synchron Player.

Each instrument comes with a variety of mixer presets that include traditional Decca Tree configurations with variations such as Close, Classical, Wide, Distant and Ambient, but also processed signals with algorithmic reverb, compression, delays and effects for “Low Boom”, “Power Timps”, “Far Away Echoes” and many more. “Surround to Stereo” feeds the surround and high surround mics to the stereo signal for a richer and wider sound. Also included are “Surround” presets for 5.1 applications and 3D audio setups such as Auro 3D and Dolby Atmos.

A new feature of the Synchron Player lets you place each single drum (where available, such as timpani, taiko drums, roto toms) in the stereo panorama. Instead of automatically placing the entire setup, e.g., the five timpani, on its spot on stage, you can use the new "Output Config" feature to route each close-miked drum to its own channel.
