SO WHAT IS AN ILOK AND WHAT DOES IT DO?
An iLok is USB device that stores software licences for iLok compatible software.
It’s basically a key that authorizes audio software. It is the alternative to authorising software with a serial number.
They are Mac and PC compatible.
A vast amount of software is now authorized via an iLok. Pro Tools itself is authorised via an ilok.
There are 3 types of iLok. Generation 1, 2 and 3.
The 1st genertion iLok could hold 118 individual assets/licences.
iLok – 2 500 assets/licences.
iLok 3 – 1,500 assets/licences.
Each plugin you purchase may come with a RTAS, TDM, AU or VST version and each type counts as 1 asset! Things like plugin bundles can eat up space quick.
Check your iLok account to see how close you are.
