Product Registration FAQ

Hardware registration (Serial Number)

Click here to visit the My Products page and register your hardware.

Hardware serial numbers come in a range of formats, often on the unit itself.

If the new hardware includes bundled software (such as the SSL Production Pack, extended subscription trials and perpetual plug-in licenses), you must register it to your SSL Account first in order to access it. Once registered, you can find your bundled software on the ‘My Products’ page, via the 'Get Your Additional Software' link.


Software registration (License Code)

NOTE: If you purchased your SSL plug-in via the SSL eStore, it will have been registered to your SSL Account, deposited directly to your iLok account, and will appear in ‘My Products’ automatically. You do not need to register it manually in order to access your software.

If you purchased your software via a third-party dealer (such as Sweetwater or Plugin Boutique) after November 2022, then you will have received a license code in one of the following formats:

Redeeming an iLok Activation Code

NOTE: although we use iLok to license our products, you do *not* need an iLok USB to use our products. iLok License Manager can be used to activate the license to the computer itself, or to an iLok USB plugged into the computer.

To redeem an iLok Activation Code, you must have iLok License Manager installed. open iLok License Manger and go to Licenses > Redeem Activation Code, follow the instructions and enter your activation code.


Once the activation code has been redeemed, you can proceed with activating your license.
