Do I need an iLok?

You do not need a USB iLok key to use the Softube plug-ins. You do, however, need an iLok account.

An iLok account will be created automatically for you when setting upp your Softube/Gobbler account. If you already have an iLok account, you will be asked to link an already existing iLok account to your Softube account when registering your Softube account.

A USB iLok key (iLok generation 2 and up), which you can buy a most music stores, is a convenient way to backup your licenses and take them with you if you work in a lot of different studios. Using an iLok dongle is optional though, all Softube plug-ins can be authorized using iLok's machine-based licenses.
