NEW SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Electric Keys version 1.0.5 has the following new minimum
and recommended system requirements:
64-bit operation
For native 64-bit operation, Electric Keys has the following
additional requirements:
■
Mac OS X v10.6, or a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Vista
■
64-bit CPU
■
64-bit plug-in host application, if using the 64-bit plug-in
Platform
Electric Keys formats that support 64-bit operation
Mac OS X
AU, VST, Stand-alone
Windows
VST, Stand-alone
Hard disk format
Due to the large size of Electric Keys’ factory soundbank UFS
files, the disk containing the soundbank files must be able to
support individual files larger than 4 GB. This is determined
by the disk’s file system format.
■ Mac or PC with Intel Core Duo CPU 1.83 GHz or faster;
multiple processors or a multi-core processor is required.
Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.0 GHz or faster recommended.
Macs with PowerPC CPUs are not supported.
The default file system format for disk drives on Mac OS X
and Windows are compatible with Electric Keys’ soundbank
files:
2 GB of RAM is required; 4 GB or more is highly
recommended.
■ Mac OS X: HFS+ (Mac OS Extended, journaled or
unjournaled)
■
■
CD/DVD disc drive for installation.
■
Windows: NTFS
Mac OS X version 10.5 or 10.6 (v10.5.8 or later is
required), or Windows 7 or Vista (32- or 64-bit; Vista SP2 or
later is required).
The FAT32 format is not compatible with Electric Keys’
soundbank files, as it does not allow file sizes greater than
4 GB.
■ A large hard drive (preferably at least 100 GB) with
enough free space to hold the 40 GB of soundbank files. The
drive on which the sounds are stored must be a fast hard
drive. See below for Mac- and Windows-specific hard drive
requirements.
If you experience trouble copying the UFS files to your hard
disk, refer to the troubleshooting chapter in the Electric Keys
User Guide.
■
An available USB port for the iLok USB key. If you have
multiple products that use iLoks for authorization, you can
consolidate multiple authorizations onto a single iLok using
www.ilok.com.
■
A digital audio workstation program or other program
that hosts MAS, AU, VST, or RTAS instrument plug-ins.
Alternatively, Electric Keys can be used as a stand-alone
application.
■
UVI ENGINE XT
Electric Keys 1.0.5 has been significantly updated, due to the
incorporation of the latest UVI Engine XT first introduced in
the recent release of MachFive 3. Electric Keys 1.0.5 is now
based on this same core code base, which offers:
■ Compatibility with the latest Mac OS X and Windows
operating systems, including Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) and
Windows 7
■
64-bit operation
■
CPU performance optimizations
■
Dozens of “under-the-hood” improvements

ELECTRIC KEYS 1.0.5 UPDATE NOTES
INSTALLATION
Important! Install the iLok drivers first
Before installing Electric Keys or connecting your iLok USB
SmartKey, install the included iLok drivers, as follows:
1 Insert the Electric Keys Installer CD and open the InterLok
Extensions Installer folder; or, if you have downloaded the
latest iLok drivers, locate the folder containing the
download.
Then copy the UFS soundbank files to your hard drive
Electric Keys includes five 8 GB (dual layer) soundbank
DVDs that contain a total of 40 GB of multi-sampled
instruments. To install the UFS soundbank files, copy them
from the DVDs to the following location:
Mac OS X
startup disk/Library/Application Support/MOTU/Electric Keys/Sounds/
Windows
startup disk:\Program Files\MOTU\Electric Keys\Sounds\
2 Double-click the InterLok extensions installer.
3 Follow the directions the installer gives you.
4 Restart your computer, then connect the iLok USB
SmartKey to an available USB port.
☛ Windows users: Follow any on-screen prompts
regarding iLok driver installation.
Windows users: Uninstall previous versions
Before running this Electric Keys installer, Windows users
should uninstall previous versions of Electric Keys by
opening the Windows Control Panel, choosing Programs and
Features (Vista or 7) or Add or Remove Programs (XP), and
uninstalling Electric Keys.
☛
If you are using the DXi version of Electric Keys 1.0, see
“DXi transition” on page 2 before uninstalling.
Next, run the Electric Keys installer
Run the Electric Keys installer first before you copy the UFS
soundbank files from the soundbank DVDs, as follows:
1 Insert the Electric Keys Installer CD; or, if you have
downloaded the Electric Keys installer, locate the folder
containing the download.
2 Double-click Install Electric Keys (Mac), Setup32.exe
(Windows 32-bit), or Setup64.exe (Windows 64-bit).
3 Follow the directions the installer gives you.
☛
Windows VST users: The Electric Keys VST plug-in is
installed in:
The term startup disk in the path names above is the name of
your system hard drive (usually Macintosh HD or C).
Place the UFS files directly in this location. Alternatively, you
can place the UFS files in another location (possibly on an
external or second hard drive), create aliases (Mac OS X) or
shortcuts (Windows) to them, and then place the aliases or
shortcuts in this location.
☛
If you create aliases or shortcuts, the names must be the
same as their corresponding UFS files. If the alias or shortcut
name includes the words alias or shortcut to, it will not work.
☛
The Classic Electric Pianos.ufs and Classic Electric
Pianos.ufs1 files MUST be placed in the same folder.
DXI TRANSITION
Electric Keys version 1.0.1 and later does not have a DXi
version. Windows users should instead use the VST or RTAS
plug-in or the standalone Electric Keys application.
If you have projects that use the DXi version of Electric Keys,
before uninstalling Electric Keys 1.0 or installing Electric
Keys 1.0.1 or later, follow these steps to transition from the
DXi version to another format (VST, in this example):
1 Open any project files that use DXi instances of Electric
Keys.
2 Open the DXi instance of Electric Keys and save a combi.
3 Create a new VST instance of Electric Keys.
4 Load the combi file from the DXi instance into the VST
instance.
startup disk:\Program Files\MOTU\Vstplugins
Point your host application to this folder, or copy the Electric
Keys VST.dll file to the Vstplugins folder of your choice.
