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).

Volume 7 of our VI Special Edition Series features 22 instruments with the most important articulations from our popular library products Historic Winds I-III, Recorders, and Glass Instruments.

Whether you’re following an authentic performance practice or you're just looking for new inspiring sound sources - VI Special Edition Vol. 7 offers beautiful rarities you will not find in other sample libraries or software instruments.


Instrumental Rarities

The transverse flute experienced its golden era in the Baroque period as a predecessor of the modern concert flute.

The Baroque oboe covers the soprano range, whereas the oboe da caccia covers the alto register.

The latter looks more like a hunting horn than an oboe, due to its curved tube and brass bell.

The ophicleide is a conical-bore brass instrument that is today superseded by the saxophone and the tuba.

The serpent is an ancestor of the contrabassoon and the tuba, covering the bass register of the zink (cornett) family of instruments.

The Zink (or cornett) was a popular instrument of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, covering the soprano and sopranino register.

The crumhorn produces the typically bright and "nasal" timbre that music of the Renaissance period is often associated with.

The wooden recorders include soprano, alto, tenor, and bass recorder.

Natural trumpets were originally used as military instruments for acoustic signals.

As they have no valves the instruments are characterized by their long tubing compared to modern trumpets.

The same goes for the natural horn that has neither finger holes nor valves and can only produce natural tones according to the harmonic series.

In order to play harmonic scales in differing keys, various tuning slides are used.

The glass harmonica is a special gem that was invented in 1761. Hemispherical glass bowls rotate around a horizontal axis driven by a pedal.

Sounds are produced by touching the rotating glasses with moistened fingertips.

Today, the glass harmonica is an absolute rarity, with roughly ten professional players worldwide.
