The iLok smart
key enables you to carry all of your authorizations with you wherever you
go using a single key. It's portable. Your iLok enables you to easily move
authorizations from one computer to another. Use your software at home,
at the office, at a studio, or at a friend's house. Authorizations are
stored in the safe, secure iLok -- not on a computer or hard drive. iLok
is immune to problems caused by machine upgrades, disk maintenance, hardware
failures, and software updates.
Do I need
an iLok before purchasing URS plug-ins?
No. You can purchase URS plug-ins
without owning an iLok but you will not be able to use the plug-ins
until you own an iLok.
I purchase an iLok?
If you purchased a Pro Tools HD
or HD Accel system, an iLok is included with your system.
If you have a Native system (Pro
Tools Mix, Digi002, Digi001, MBox, Logic Audio, DP, Cubase, Nuendo, etc.)
you will need to purchase an iLok.
URS does not sell the ilok. It can
be purchased from Digidesign's
Web store or most dealers for $40.00 plus shipping.
