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).

Three Energetic Drum Sets in One Magnificent Space

  • Dynamic, powerful, and raw recordings of three drum sets, captured at Synchron Stage Vienna in stereo & surround formats
  • Ideal for intense patterns, drum battles, and multi-player grooves
  • Includes an exclusive selection of cinematic drum loops, listen here
  • Three complementary patterns in one MIDI file, ready to be played or modified
  • Humanize Delay introduces inaccuracy when needed, with intensity adjustable by MIDI automation
  • Perfect addition to all Synchron Series products
  • Choose from tailor-made mixer presets, from clean to highly processed sounds

The drum kit is the pillar of a groove. Put three kits together in a fantastic ambient room and you’ll have an explosion of pounding energy.

That's the concept behind Synchron Power Drums - hard-hitting, energetic drum grooves played simultaneously on three independent yet interacting drum kits in Synchron Stage Vienna's famous main hall.

The sound will take your music to the highest levels of intensity, and let your inner drummer go wild!

With the Tama Star (2017) placed between the Tama Superstar (1972) and the Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (1975) kits on the sound stage, you have the option of using these drums sets all together or individually, both in their recorded positions or in a centered position.

All three instruments represent the diverse sonic properties of different recording eras to give you a wide variety of sounds.

3 Drum Sets - 1 Venue

Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage

The Sonor Acryl Champion Vintage (left) delivers that perfect 70s sound and has been played by legends such as Ringo Starr, Karen Carpenter, and Nick Mason.

Its acrylic shells have a louder, punchier sound than wooden drums, and a well-tuned acrylic snare drum can deliver a ton of sonic "crack" and projection.
