The Basics

iLok is a copy protection method used by many of our brands.

It has 3 types of activations, iLok USB, iLok Machine, and iLok Cloud.

Different brands/products will offer different iLok methods. iLok USB is always an option, but the availability of iLok Cloud and iLok Machine methods is at the discretion of the software developer.


iLok Account

For all iLok protected products, you will need an iLok account. You can create one for free here: ilok.com/#!registration


iLok License Manager

To manage your iLok licenses, there is a dedicated app called iLok License Manager. This app is used to register, activate, and move your licenses between locations.

You can download the latest installers from the iLok website: ilok.com/#!home


iLok USB Key

iLok USB

This activation is stored on an iLok 2 or 3 USB key.

It is the best option for portability, if you frequently move between multiple machines, and offline use.


iLok Machine ID

Machine ID

This activation is stored locally on your computer.

While this is a convenient way to work offline, and does not require the additional cost of an iLok USB, there is the risk of a license being lost in the case of a drive failure.

This option also requires extra care when you upgrade to a new computer, the license(s) must be deactivated on your old machine first to ensure you do not lose them.


iLok Cloud

iLok Cloud

This activation is based online, and requires a "cloud session" using the iLok License Manager.

It requires an active internet connection for the entire time you use the plugin(s).

Note: This product isn't yet compatible with macOS 11 (Big Sur), macOS 12 (Monterey) and macOS (Ventura).


Nithonat is a fully synthesized drum machine based on the classic 606. Its unique sound has snuck its way over the years into productions spanning Electro, Hip-Hop, RnB, and Pop. At D16 they recreated a legend with virtual perfection, and then expanded on it with essential features, exclusive to Nithonat.


Expanded Controls

On the original 606, the only sound parameter was volume. In order for it to stand up to the flexibility of its bigger siblings (Ie the 808 and 909), we implemented extra controls which allow each sound to be shaped in ways never before accomplished by the original.

A whole spectrum of sounds is now at your fingertips – rumbling kicks, barky snares, and completely unique, ear-grabbing toms and hi-hats. For the first time since its release in the 80s, you can explore what the 606 would have truly been capable of!


One of A Kind

Nithonat was designed completely from the ground up. Its synthesis is special – even when compared to Nepheton's. It has very unique and characteristic hi-hat and cymbal sounds which are due to the emulated structure of the circuits in the original. The bass drum has unparalleled attack character and strong punch. The snare sounds sandy.

These unique attributes guarantee that our 606 is not a sub-standard 808 but is a great instrument with a unique timbre that will bring an old-school feel to any track it is used on.


Proudly Different

Nithonat was designed from the ground up not only as a 1-to-1 emulator but as a standalone instrument in its own right. Its synthesis is quite special – even compared to our other offerings such as Nepheton. Its quirky, characteristic hi-hat and cymbal sounds come from emulating the exact structure of the original circuits.

The untouched bass drum has tons of attack and character, but add to that our exclusive 'Tune', 'Attack', and 'Decay' parameters and you’ll be packing your mix with more kick than hot-sauce covered in ghost peppers. We followed the same ethos in emulating the snare; all the familiarities of the original, but with the added 'Tune', 'Tone', and 'Snappy' controls for a snare that really grounds a track and creates a sonic palette ready for production.

These unique attributes guarantee that our 606 is not just some awkward 808 stuck in a teenage phase. It stands apart with old-school timbres, squeezing its vibe to any track whether it's Progressive House or RnB.


Beauty in Flexibility

Nithonat has a powerful built-in internal sequencer with a clean GUI and simple, intuitive controls. In addition to having many internal sequencer modes, Nithonat can also be used as a sound module. All sounds and functions within Nithonat can be controlled via your host DAW, offering creative, familiar results. Operation of Nithonat is very similar to Drumazon and Nepheton - so if you’ve already delved into our previous instruments you can skip reading the manual!
