How do I start my demo? Back to knowledge base
You will need a free iLok account to activate a demo of most Krotos plugins. If you do not have an iLok account, create one for free at www.ilok.com. To activate your demo of Concept or Simple Concept, please follow the instructions here.
Dehumaniser II and Simple Monsters
To start the demo, install the plugin and reboot your DAW. When the iLok popup appears, choose ‘Try’, and follow the procedure on-screen. This will deposit a Demo license to your iLok account. Once installed, these may appear under the ‘Other’ plugin category in your DAW (e.g. in Pro Tools).
Reformer Pro, Weaponiser and Igniter
Most Krotos plugins, including Reformer Pro, Weaponiser and Igniter can be used for 10 days as a fully-functional demo without a license. For these plugins, you do not need an activation code, and you will not receive a license into your iLok account before you load them for the first time. To activate these demos, follow the procedure below.
Please note that these demos is fully-functional, but include fewer presets than the main commercial products. This is because Krotos products include a unique combination of presets and assets, and we cannot distribute all assets for demo users.
For Weaponiser, your demo will appear as ‘Weaponiser Basic’, even if you expressed interest in the ‘Fully Loaded’ version. This is to account for the fewer number of assets and presets. The full versions of Weaponiser Basic and Fully Loaded also include a much larger set of presets and assets.
You will need a free iLok account to activate any demo of any Krotos plugin. If you do not have an iLok account, create one for free at www.ilok.com
You do not need a physical iLok to evaluate the plugin
You will only be able to evaluate the demo once on your iLok account.
To start the demo, install the plugin, reboot your DAW, and add your Krotos Plugin (Reformer Pro, Weaponiser, Igniter etc) to a track in your DAW.
Remember that Weaponiser and Igniter are VSTi ‘instrument plugins’ and may only appear in the ‘instruments’ plugin list for your DAW.
When the iLok popup appears, choose ‘Try’, and follow the procedure on-screen.
Log into your iLok account and choose a location. Your demo will now be active.
You will see a popup window again in 10 days time, when your demo will expire.
