iLoud MTM Now Shipping

IK Multimedia’s highly anticipated studio monitors are on their way!

The wait is over, iLoud MTM studio monitors are en route.  Prepare for your perception of studio monitors to be completely shattered as iLoud MTM plays music like you’ve never heard before.  After shocking the industry with the size and power of iLoud Micro Monitor, IK was challenged to push its concept even further – to design a new compact speaker to rival 5”, 6” and even 8” monitors.  The result is iLoud MTM, and you have to hear them to believe it.

iLoud MTM offers an ultra-flat frequency response, but more importantly, a truly linear phase response – a premiere feature in this price segment available only on a handful of products costing considerably more. This gives iLoud MTM a natural, true-to-life sound made possible by IK’s advanced DSP expertise.

iLoud MTM uses audiophile-grade, high resolution algorithms and top-of-the line A/D converters to carefully manage cross-overs, filtering, time alignment, equalization, dynamics control and auto-calibration.  Prepare to hear instruments and dialogue as if they were happening live, discover more detail in your tracks than ever before, and avoid wasting hours trying to EQ away issues that were never there.

iLoud MTM studio monitors

With a generous 100W RMS power and a class-defying 40 Hz to 24 kHz frequency response, iLoud MTM are extremely loud and clear.  Incredible accuracy and transparency, deep and defined bass, precise stereo imaging at any distance, and automatic room calibration, all in a monitor that’s small enough to fit on any desktop. 

iLoud MTM monitors feature built-in, one-touch acoustic auto-calibration derived from IK’s award winning ARC™ System, with IK’s reference ARC™ microphone included, to easily adjust the frequency response to your positioning.

iLoud MTM uses a midrange-tweeter-midrange symmetrical design, with a pair of 3.5” high performance woofers and one 1” high definition tweeter, which provide ultra-precise, defined, point-source sound that can’t be achieved by traditional 2-way systems at close distances.  The result is a more natural, life-like sound that minimizes the ear fatigue caused by traditional 2- or 3-way designs where different frequencies arrive at the listener’s ears at different times, so you can mix longer with less effort.

iLoud MTM offers:

  • Extended, controlled low end
  • Superior sound at short distances

Thanks to the clean stereo image, razor sharp transients and unmuddled, powerful basses I have the feeling of monitoring with a precision tool. When it comes down to care fully listening and analytically working on mixes and sounds or for Example catching technical errors and editing them out, the iLoud MTMS are Exactly the right solution. “

Performer Magazine Reviews AXE I/O

“How about an interface that’s optimized for guitarists?…”

Performer Magazine spent time working with our AXE I/O and all of its accompanying free software.  Touching on its features like Z-Tone, the passive or active pickup selector, the JFET or pure switch, and more, Performer Magazine rates AXE I/O with all positive qualities.  Complimenting AXE I/O‘s “excellent design” and “plenty of tonal options”, they says that “this is it” for the recording guitarist looking to get studio quality at home.  Here are some excerpts from the review:

How about an interface that’s optimized for guitarists… IK’s done it masterfully with their new AXE I/O.

“Let’s talk about T-RackS; it’s insane, covering emulations of great studio hardware…”

[The amp out feature] is the easiest way of blending a real amp with the AmpliTube software at the same time.

“Another great feature is the ability to connect two external control pedals, like a channel switcher or an expression pedal. This now makes a laptop running AmpliTube a practical and viable live tool.”

Want to take tracks home from a studio and get amazing results without the hassles of booking time? Yeah, this is it.
