Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth it. I’ve had UltraChannel for over a year now, and the iLok license manager has been giving me grief. Sometimes when you place it in your effect chain, you get a message saying:

Activation Error: The licensing service required to activate this software is not running. Please reinstall the product or download and run the iLok License Manager installer here: http://www.ilok.com

When this happens, you have to uninstall the previous license manager, restart your computer, then install the new version, restart your computer again, and then reopen your project and hope it works. That’s happened four times to me. Maybe you have more patience than me, but it’s sad that obnoxious DRM has crippled an otherwise useful plugin. I rarely use it now.
