USB Key for Storing Authorizations Portable Can Hold Over 500 Authorizations Immune from Updates and Crashes The new iLok USB Smart Key enables you to carry nearly 500 authorizations with you wherever you go using a single key. Pace's iLok USB Smart Key is required for all optional Avid and Avid-distributed plug-ins plus many other third-party plug-ins and software options for Pro Tools 6.1 and higher. DigiRack plug-ins and other free Pro Tools content do not require an iLok. Note: If you have products that use the older Pace license cards you will need to use the original iLok. The new iLok will not accommodate Pace license cards. Store approximately 500 authorizations on a single iLok New sleek durable design Easily move authorizations from one computer to another - use your software at home at the office at a studio or at a friend's house Authorizations are stored in the secure iLok USB Smart Key-not on the computer or hard drive - so iLok is immune to problems caused by machine upgrades disk maintenance hardware failures and software updates
Works perfectly. If you're reading this, I assume you know what it is. It's a digital storage locker for the keys which allow you to use advanced software, such as Avid's Pro Tools, and Source Connect. You store your key data on this, plug it in to your PC, and you can launch the software. I give it 5 stars because it just works. When it's plugged in to your PC, the software just starts. No issues. No hiccups. Without it, iLOK secured..
