    brilliant thanks - are you currently using Waves 8 ? do you have any personal experience running it with Logic 9 / Lion ?

    iLOK and Lion

    Yes, the iLok does work with Lion. It requires that you download the latest driver here: http://www.paceap.com/download.html (manufacturer website).

    Download the "Mac OS X Extension". It will give you a file called "macextsx".

    Sonnox EQ and Reverb currently don't work in Logic. Validation fails. Strangely both work fine in Ableton Live.

    Issue is with Logic, then. I've read lots of things that say Logic isn't compatible...yet. I still get an error. ProTools works wonderfully, though.

    ilok and lion

    just got it from an inside source who would surely know-ilok is not yet supported by lion, thus software programs which require ilok would not yet function on lion--e.g. sounds on line/east west programs-- according to this person, the focus is much less an issue as portrayed on the software source and much more on the security required-- the result, if this is accurate, is we have to wait for ilok compatibility----------

    I'm currently having issues with ProTools and Ableton live has anyone gotten the iLok to work with either of those? Specifically with Waves 7?

    I have all the newest client software and drivers installed. I'm on a brand new Mac Pro running Lion. PT9 and Ableton Live suite 8.2.6 iLok is recognized by iLok.com and it shows me that all my licenses are on there but then whenever I start up Live or Pro Tools it says it can't find the licenses on the iLok or that the iLok isn't connected. These same iLoks work fine on my other box running Leopard.

    ANY help here would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    -Chris
