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 Orakle X

At the heart of Orakle X is MNTRA founder Brian D'Oliveira's (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Resident Evil VII: Biohazard) vast collection of one-of-a-kind instruments, assembled during his many travels across the globe.

His dedication to studying the ancient performance techniques of these unique instruments, combined with our leading-edge ultrasonic sampling workflow, allows them to be heard in an entirely new way.

From aleatoric flute swarms and bombastic drums to bowed metal textures and extended Baroque cello harmonics, Orakle X gives you all the components needed to create visionary sound worlds.

Recorded with state-of-the-art equipment in our legendary RCA Victor studio in Montreal, and meticulously sampled to capture the nuanced resonances of these rare instruments, Orakle X has vast compositional and sound design applications.

This isn't your off-the-shelf orchestral library, these sounds are dripping with personality.

Our performances focused on alternative extended techniques that amplify the distinctive characteristics of the instruments.

Simply hold down one note and hear the sound evolve under your finger.

Recorded with sonic mangling and manipulation in mind, our powerful MNDALA 2 Sound Design Engine allows you to shape these instruments into anything you can imagine.

Transform a beautiful quena flute into a speaker-rattling industrial drone.

Warp our harmonically rich treble gamba strings into an otherworldly ambient pad.

This is your sonic playground.

To get you started, MNTRA's sound designer team has created over 89 expertly crafted presets.

Utilizing the full power of our 3-axis RTPCs (Real-Time Parameter Controls), our interactive animated Perform View interface allows you to easily explore these complex presets.

Simply map your favorite MIDI controller to the XYZ performance macros and follow this inspiring collection of dynamic sounds wherever they take you.
