Ilok 3 uses same tech encryption as ilok 2 from what i have read
ilok 3 is a missleading name for a ilok that is just a upgraded ilok2 IMO
ilok2+ would have been a better name to create less confusion

Defenitively happy i dont have to buy ilok3 if i dont want to

The non forced way is much better
and i may pherhaps buy ilok3 one day after all because it seems much less breakable

If i was forced to buy i would simply refuse LOL

I read is just cosmetic and bigger memory, for some reason I feel its not only that.

Its a shame $50 for a new usb stick which cost $1 to make in china.



You can get it "free" with the slate digital plugin subscription bundle. I just got it a few weeks ago and this is the most i've ever been impressed about digital plugins. iLok3 is super small. Just don't lose it.

Its fully backwards compatible with all Ilok 2 and Ilok 1 licenses?

bumping this - anyone experienced any perceptible performance difference vs V2?

The Softube plugins finally work in Studio One 3 on windows 10. (no compatibility mode)

It's weird that mine don't... :(

I have:

- Latest version of Studio One (x64 bit)
- Latest Windows 10 patch/updates installed
- Latest versions of the Softube plugins (things like Tube Tech and S73)
- Latest version of iLok License Manager

I can see the plugins in the Studio One browser, but when dragging onto my project, it crashes instantly.

Is there anything obvious I've missed or any change you know of specifically that Softube made that fixed this issue?!

Appreciate your feedback! Thank you

I believe Softube fixed this ilok issue about 2 months ago.
I'm running the lastest versions of studio one/softube plugs (vst3). However I'm still running an older version of the ilok manager (3.1.4) latsest is 3.1.5. (the ''if it aint broke don't fix it'' attitude)

But according to your discription of the problem it seems to indicate something else might be wrong. The main issue with the ilok/softube/studio one problem was that studio one would crash when starting the program.

What you could do: (highly doubt this will fix anything)
-reset the plugin blacklist/rescan
-getting the ilok manager 3.1.4
-set studio one in compatibility mode (windows 8)
-or the nucleair option: complete new clean install of windows (includes plugin hell)

However I highly doubt that getting the latest ilok dongle would solve your problem.

Ahhhh you know what, I'm using VST2 whereas you're using VST3. Let me try VST3 when I get home from work, hopefully that fixes the problem!

Really appreciate your advice so far - cheers

Have you tried going dongle less with Softube?

how to buy ilok in bulk

Does anyone know where to buy ilok in bulk? I've seen people selling ilok3 as little as 25 bucks, or ilok2 for 15 bucks. Any search I do on the internet goes nowhere :/

I'm just going to wait for the 4th generation. I heard it won't have a headphone jack or a home button.

But you'll be able to activate your licenses with your face.
