Friscotch's review"Warning about iLok"
I’ve read here and there advices about getting cracked versions of my plugins. What a ridiculous situation: I would have to use cracked versions of plugins for which I paid and own the license… How can the software industry let such thing happen? It is like they are paradoxically rewarding theft…
On the other hand, I never had problems with any challenge/response protection in over 20 years (Native Instruments, Ableton Live, iZotope, etc, etc…). So handy not having to plug a dongle when travelling a lot with a laptop (working in cars, trains, flights…) plus the risk of forgetting to take the dongle with me.
I wrote a letter to iLok and Sonnox support letting them know in details my awful experience and asking them to allow for HD transferable licenses for any plugins I paid for and for which I need a professional grade reliability (especially the Sonnox in my case): they didn’t get back to me as of today. In the meantime, I’ll stop using the plugins “locked" on the iLok for any professional work…
yoTrakkz's review"take it with you"
The smaller footprint also helps alot. It is not the big clunky USB key. It is actually the size of the other USB devices that I own, and the new color scheme with the blue LED light is just great, as it matches my USB hub. It also has a very nice glow to it when the lights are out.
I also used a sharpie to write in the area to distinguish my iLok, though I most likely won't have a lot with the expanded 500 slots for the licenses, allowing for future licenses on one iLok without the worry of running out of space. A huge plus, especially with the Waves bundles that is in my wishlist.
My only gripe is the cap. I wish there was some way to have the cap stay on the iLok, like maybe a string to keep it attach. Nothing to knock it for. This is probably the most excited I ever been about a device like this. But overall, its great and it serves its purpose. Don’t be fooled by other models, this is the best one. If you are using the first generation get rid of it and get this one. It looks a lot better and will make your set up look really nice and modern. So if you have god a lot of licenses and you don’t want to carry around multiple iLoks to all of your sessions. Just get this and it will take care of that problem for you in no time at all.

I bought it to replace my old iLok green and transferred all my licenses above. I keep my old well in "spare" and can I use with the service ZDT (Zero Down Time) iLok site ...
Better finish than the first version. It is possible to annotate the key under a cover removable translucent. Practice when in studio with all keys are alike! It is always possible, as in the first, attach it to a strap or make a earring for your puma !
My Pro Tools 10 license is installed on it, so I hope what has a good life with respect to the price of the software and other authorizations board (over € 2000 software)!
Otherwise, until then, nothing to complain about ... It just does not appreciate the USB hubs.

the bubble's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I had to work arrangements for emergency travel is missed .... I'm angry eastwest cons and I say clearly, they do not change their policy, I prefer to have their software without paying for them .. ..... 50 euros for protection is the flight manifest (some have found the key to 30 not me). they stop their paranoia among eastwest and we hear about this shit ..... company! increasingly the key did not prevent piracy and everybody knows it. without this extra cost, I'm sure fewer people would be reluctant to buy software rather than steal them but hey ...... it was my little rant
So I do not know what sounds like the silver ...... and if ever the key to cram and I find myself without a license, I say plainly I crack the protection.

Nico53's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is the m *** e in bote ... the principle is simply anti business and the limit of the scam ... especially when you see the price and the delivery times .. .dropoff window
... I do not know how many people were able to try the demos from home Digidesign ... but I think they sound not numerous in these conditions ...
