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).

De-Reverberation and Signal Focusing

UNVEIL is a real-time, de-mixing based plug-in that allows attenuating or boosting reverb components within a mixed signal of any channel count, including mono sources, as well as modifying reverb characteristics.

Additionally, UNVEIL allows you to bring the key features of a recording into focus, or move them to the background, by attenuating or boosting perceptionally less important signal components.

Based on Zynaptiq's proprietary, artificial intelligence based MAP (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) technology, UNVEIL allows fixing previously unusable location audio and dialog, tightening up live music recordings, removing reverb and "mud" from musical signals, as well as creative sound design.


UNVEIL has many uses, some of which are:

  • Audio engineers can attenuate reverb in recordings
  • Film mixers and dialog editors can remove reverb from dialog and location sound
  • Music producers can turn vintage drum-loops rich in reverb into dry recordings, and vice-versa
  • Foley artists can remove ambience from sub-optimally captured sounds
  • Mix and mastering engineers can bring key mix elements into focus by attenuating components commonly referred to as "mud"

Goodbye, Reverb

Removing reverb from recordings has always been difficult to impossible. Existing de-reverberation strategies either manipulate signal dynamics, require specific channel formats, are limited to certain signal types, or all of the above. Enter UNVEIL.

UNVEIL is not an expander or envelope shaper, is not a spectral thresholding processor, does not use phase cancellation techniques or inter-channel correlation analysis, and thus works with any channel count from mono to whichever surround formats your DAW supports, and without changing signal dynamics.

To achieve this, it utilizes a model of the human auditory system to discern which parts of the signal are reverb, effectively "listening" to your signal much like a human would.

These components are then separated from your signal for processing using our MAP technology.

From there, reducing the amount of reverb in your recording is as easy as adjusting the value of one of our slick track-ball-esque sliders.


Hello, Reverb

Conversely, UNVEIL allows increasing the amount of reverb in a recording, too.

You can turn a close-miked drum kit into a full-on room-heavy monster, move a sound back in the sound-stage or adapt the amount of reverb on different location recordings to match each other better.

Additionally, UNVEIL gives you several parameters that allow manipulating reverb characteristics...like all of it's features, within a mixed signal, in real-time and even using mono source material.

No, that's not magic, that's advanced science.


UNVEIL The Detail

UNVEIL's algorithm isn't limited to processing reverb.

Actually, it processes any signal components that the human auditory system considers as being of little significance, which includes the parts that many engineers refer to as "mud".

As a result, UNVEIL allows reducing the level of all the stuff that clouds your signal and masks the detail you work so hard to capture, bringing the key features into focus and, well, unveiling all the inherent detail.

And again, you can use the inverse function to add grit and a less up-front character to your recording.


One Small Step

Except for the mathematics under the hood, everything about UNVEIL is simple and easy, results are always just one small step away.

That being said, UNVEIL allows adjusting the process in a very wide range.

No dumbed-down "easy-mode" in sight, just a perfectly stream-lined, no-nonsense GUI that looks as slick as UNVEIL sounds.

And oooooh yes does it sound good. But don't take our word for it, grab the demo for a test-drive!
