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:!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:!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).

The Story of Caprakan

Earthy, dark, and cinematic, Caprakan takes inspiration from the Mayan god of mountains and earthquakes.

Furious and powerful, Caprakan vibrates and shatters matter, creating potent sounds that travel hundreds of kilometers.

Together with Huracan, Caprakan lets you explore a possible alternate reality where cultures from Central and South America, free from colonialism, were able to continue developing their musical instruments, creating an entirely individual style of electronic music tools.

Core to the creation of Caprakan is MNTRA's interest in learning and mastering these ancient instruments, and our continuous search for novel sounds and processes.

Led by their extensive experience creating award-winning musical sound worlds for AAA video games, they created Caprakan to be an all-inclusive sound palette, offering a curated selection of all the potential layers of a musical piece: rhythm, melody, harmony, texture, and beyond.

Within the Animistic Sampler Engine, MNDALA 2, these incredibly deep samples expand infinitely in possibility.

Using the proprietary 3-axes global control system, countless parameters can be expressively manipulated in real-time, allowing you to create ever-evolving soundscapes just with one preset!

Whether you're looking for quick inspiration in the vast library of handcrafted presets, or want to delve deep into sound design using backend parameters that allow the shaping of every element, Caprakan enables you to conceive unique musical sounds never heard before, that are surprisingly full of life and magic.
