iLok2 or iLok3 device
The most reliable form of authorisation, an iLok is a device which plugs into a USB port on your machine. It doesn't require an internet connection but must be plugged into your machine at all times while using your Sonnox plug-ins - Authorises all Sonnox plug-ins
Machine authorisation
Some other plug-in manufacturers allow licences to be authorised to a specific computer instead of an iLok device. We only allow Machine authorisation for VoxDoubler and Codec Toolbox. No other Sonnox plug-ins can be authorised to a specific computer.

The newest generation of Sonnox plug-ins, G5, are incompatible with original iLok devices. If you are upgrading, please be aware that your G5 licences will not work on the old iLok1. You can continue to use iLok1 to authorise legacy licences.

When you log in to the iLok Licence Manager, you'll probably see one or multiple different icons in the left hand panel. These icons represent active Devices that you can authorise licences to. Please note that only Devices that are currently online will be accessible - these locations will appear in a solid black colour. Other inaccessible Devices will appear greyed out, and you won't be able to use or transfer the licences activated to those locations until the associated Device is connected to your computer.

If you've got any questions about authorisation, or if you're unsure about your options, please create a support ticket and we'll be happy to assist!
