Waves has announced the introduction of free support for the PACE iLok Smart Key system for all Waves V4 Bundle Products, running on both PC and Mac. The iLok is a handle hardware key that plugs into a USB port and carries software authorizations. The system allows users to carry their authorizations with them, and all of a user’s authorizations can be stored on a single key, which can be used with any computer that includes a USB port.

iLok Smart Key support is included for free for all new Waves products and recent purchases (Version 4.x and later) that are covered by the Waves Update Program (WUP). iLok authorization support is available for bundles only, rather than individual products.

The process to authorize a Waves product for use with iLok can be completed online. The iAuthorizer application is available on the Waves Website (www.waves.com); the user simply logs in and goes through a checklist of eligible products to include in authorization. Supplying the serial number of the key and then running the iAuthorizer is all that is required. Once a user has authorized products using iLok, there’s no need to rely on disk-based authorizations; future Waves product upgrades will automatically use the iLok key for authorizations. It is also possible to handle upgrade bundle authorizations or version upgrades using the iLok that contains the original authorizations.

To facilitate iLok support, Waves has updated and streamlined the authorization procedure on the Waves site. For more product announcements, visit mixonline.com/products_new_products/index.htm.
