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).

Ultimate Analog Matrix Modular Synthesizer

The XILS 4 emulates a prototype that was never released, the EMS VCS4, based on two intricate and interacting VCS 3 ( Synthi) cores.

We also coupled them with the famous 256 analog poly sequencer.

Like the 2nd huge Pin Matrix, and its numerous additional modules: Envelopes, LFOs, S&H, Voltage Processor, Pitch Tracker, Transient etc.

Or the recreation of the unique, powerful 256 analog Polysequencer, intimately tied to the synthesis engines.

Add to that the analog Chorus ( 3 modes ) Delay and Phaser, the Spring Reverb, and the picture emerges.

In the XILS 4, you can connect everything with everything, and you get more than 1140 possible different connections per patch.

An endless source of inspiration for those who want to go deep into the heart of Analog Modular Synthesis.

It's impossible to summarize what the XILS 4 can do, but, in short, here's the list of the main modules:

  • 12 Aliasing-free Oscillators, grouped in 6 pairs, with WaveShaping, Hard synchronization, + 2 additional Noise oscillators
  • 2 Analog Multimode Filters, Non-Linear, and zero delay Behaviors, with 3 Modes (12/18/24 dB)
  • 4 Trapezoidal, looping, Envelope Generators. ( Switchable to standard ADSR )
  • 1 Polyphonic LFO ( not including 2 Oscillators, each one with two output, acting as LFO at audio rate )
  • Polyphonic Ring Modulator and VCA engine
  • Cascade Mode: Synthesizer 1 can feed Synth 2 engine inputs
  • 4 independent outputs feeding the Stereo Bus, each with one analog Lp/Hp filter
  • 2 Programmable Joystick Vector Controllers ( up to 32+32 modulation targets )
  • Polyphonic Sequencer with 3 independent lines, Slew rates, 3 recording modes.
  • Sequencer can behave as modulation source.
  • Pitch Tracker, Envelope Follower, Transient, Gate, Sample & Hold Modules
  • Chorus, Delay, Phaser, Spring Reverb
  • 6 Play modes (including Unison 2/4/6 ), Polyphonic and mono Portamento/Glissando/Legato, 2 different Keyboard Scaling, Polyphonic Aftertouch, and VCA handling.
  • Nearly 700 presets made by worldwide famous Sound Designers
  • Preset Database Engine (Find the right patch in a flash, create your own tags)
  • Comprehensive manual with a getting started and tutorial sections
  • More than 100 parameters mappable to midi controllers
  • More than 1100 possible connections per patch 

With the XILS 4 research Synthesizer, things that were impossible yesterday become now possible, with never-ending programming possibilities.

Not sure you're ready for modular monsters? This synthesizer includes a new preset factory library, with more than 350 presets that were specially designed for it, and also includes the XILS 3 factory library.

It also includes tutorial patches, helping you to climb the first steps of your modular life.
