Older iLok licenses from SPL, BX [&] elysia that were purchased before May 1, 2011 are subject to a fee if you want to migrate them to the new Plugin Alliance system.
The fee is $20 for a single plugin or $50 (max) for your whole account (in case you have several older licenses you want to migrate).
We charge these fees because we now offer 32- and 64-bit support for Mac and PC for all plugins. We have also added the AAX Native (new ProTools 10) to the Alliance system, and you can now use each Alliance licenses on up to 3 machines at the same time.
If you don’t need these features, you may go on using the legacy installers for the older iLok versions, found on the Manage Plugins page. We do not force users to move to the new Alliance system.
