No iLok required
Jun 8, 2015

Softube drops the requirement for a USB iLok key for all its products, making a USB iLok key optional.

All Softube plug-ins can now be used with iLok's machine-based licenses. This license type authorizes the computer itself, making the USB iLok key optional.

Each license will contain two separate authorizations, meaning that the user can either authorize one computer and keep one authorization as backup, authorize two different computers or authorize one computer and one USB iLok key.

If wanted, users can still use a USB hardware iLok for easy portability of their licenses.

Current Softube license owners
If you already own Softube licenses and wish to move them from your USB iLok key and instead authorize your computer, please follow these steps:

  • Launch the iLok License Manager application on your computer.
  • In the lower left field, select the USB iLok key with the Softube licenses on it.
  • Find the Softube products in the right field and drag/drop them onto the computer icon in the left field.
  • You will be prompted to confirm this is indeed what you would like to do—click OK. Done! You can now use your Softube products on the authorized computer without having the USB iLok key connected.
