After your Volt has been registered to your account, go to the Volt Software panel in UA Connect and click the GET STARTED button next to “Get your free UADx plug-ins”.


If you do not already have an iLok account linked to your UA Account then you will be prompted to link one. If you do not have an existing iLok account, UA Connect can create one for you.
