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).

Get the Sound of The World's Finest Echo Chambers

Capitol Chambers plug-in is a startling end-to-end recreation of the most popular echo chambers ever created, giving you gorgeous hi-fi ambience that is simply unmatched.

From Ray Charles to Frank Sinatra, Beck to Muse, the underground spaces below the iconic Capitol Tower in Los Angeles, have provided decades of gorgeous hi-fi ambience that is simply unmatched.

After years of R&D and close collaboration with Capitol Studios, Universal Audio proudly presents the Capitol Chambers plug-in, a startling end-to-end recreation of the most popular echo chambers ever created.


Included Versions

  • UAD Native - Runs on your Mac or PC without UA hardware (AAX, AU, VST3)
  • Apollo Realtime & UAD-2 - Runs accelerated on Apollo interfaces and UAD‑2 hardware (AAX, AU, VST2)

Easily Capture Iconic Echo

UA sourced historic technical diagrams from the early '60s to precisely emulate microphone/speaker setups inside Capitol's chambers, including the vintage omnidirectional Altec 21D mics and custom speaker/horn configurations and current "modern" configurations using omnidirectional Shure SM80s - all in their original hit-making positions.


Create with Unprecedented Ambience Control

Capitol Chambers' Position slider gives you next-level control over spatial and time response, allowing you to reposition the chamber mics.

From the maximum distance stock positions, to direct speaker-to-microphone effects and proximity characteristics, Capitol Chambers can subtly thicken vocals or drums, or soak strings with the most natural, complex-sounding reverb ever recorded.


Explore UA's Dynamic Room Modeling

Harnessing the same technology as UA's award-winning Ocean Way Studios plug-in, Capitol Chambers uses UA's proprietary Dynamic Room Modeling technology, an exclusive combination of physical modeling and advanced measurement techniques.

Whereas standard convolution reverbs only provide a sonic snapshot, Dynamic Room Modeling gives Capitol Chambers nearly infinite ambient possibilities.


Go Deeper Still

Beyond a vintage recreation, Capitol Chambers offers creative features for modern DAW workflows like Pre-delay, Dry/Wet mix, and Decay controls.

A sweepable 80 to 750 Hz filter lets you minimize muddy bass going into the chamber, while Bass, Treble, and proportional Q Mid band lets you perfectly season the chamber's lush ambience.


Harness All-Star Artist Presets

The Capitol Chamber's plug-in features carefully crafted presets from a stunning roster of Grammy-winning engineers and producers, including the late Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Steely Dan), Mark Linett (The Beach Boys, Los Lobos), Frank Filipetti (Madonna, Paul McCartney), Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead), and many more.
