ES-5 Controller Licensing?

Post by DMR » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:19 pm

In order to encode gates for Expert Sleepers ES-5, the ES website states:

A Silent Way licence is not included with the ES-5 - however, the ES-5 Controller plug-in functions in a licence-free mode, so ES-5 users are not forced to buy Silent Way. Such users can than evaluate the rest of the Silent Way suite in demo mode.

However when launching the ES-5 Controller plug-in (in Silent Way v2.8.0, AU version, in Ableton 10.1.9, Mac 10.13.6) a window pops up wanting to install license authorization software before it can be used. Is the iLok software necessary to run the ES-5 Controller plug-in, even though it is free?

Yes, you still need to install the iLok Licence Manager.
