What is iLok?

Modified on Sun, 21 Aug 2022 at 01:40 PM

iLok is the authorisation system that we use to store, protect and manage your plug-in licences. Your licences can be authorised to various different places, like computer, a specialised iLok USB device or the internet-based iLok Cloud. Further information on the different iLok locations is provided below :

  1. Machine Authorisation - This method allows you to authorise your plug-ins directly to your working machine. This method is less flexible than the iLok Dongle method, which allows you to authorise your licence on multiple machines, but it does mean you don't have to have the dongle plugged in to use your plug-in
  2. iLok Cloud - Nembrini Audio licences can be authorised to the "Cloud", which uses an active internet connection to authorise your plug-ins.

  3. iLok Dongle - This method comes in the form of a USB dongle which has to be plugged into the machine that you're running your plug-ins from. It keeps our software secure and protects your purchase from being distributed illegally. All Nembrini Audio  plug-ins can be authorised with an iLok2 or iLok3 USB device, but will not work with the original iLok1.

For more information about iLok devices, please read our iLok FAQs.
