Free Metering Suite with iLoud MTM & iLoud Micro Monitor

New & existing users get a free copy of acclaimed Metering Suite

IK Multimedia is offering its acclaimed T-RackS Metering Suite at no charge to registered users of their iLoud Micro Monitors and iLoud MTM monitors. The suite is part of IK’s T-RackS industry standard mixing and mastering software workstation, and offers a full range of metering tools that will enhance any type of recording, mixing or mastering work.  Combined with the award-winning accuracy and precision of the iLoud range of studio monitors, users can now work even more quickly and easily to create professional tracks in any environment. 

The T-RackS Metering Suite provides complete visual feedback about audio creations to help users achieve professional results. The precision LUFS meter offers information about the loudness of your audio on its final delivery method, from digital music, to broadcast, and everything in between. Peak, RMS and Dynamic Range meters offer feedback about the dynamic response of mixes. A time-saving Spectrogram detects frequency imbalances and phase issues before masters are finalized. VU/PPM meters provide a classic “needle style” visual, while similarly styled Mid-Side meters enable comparisons between mono and stereo content.   
Offering several flexible user options, the suite is available as a resizable plug-in for all popular DAWs, or inside the T-RackS shell when being used for stand-alone mastering work. 
About iLoud MTM 
iLoud MTM is a compact reference monitor that delivers pristine sound and unprecedented accuracy for the professional and home studio. Users can take advantage of its unsurpassed clarity, 100W RMS power and class-defying 40 Hz to 24 kHz frequency response. It also features an ultra-flat frequency response, but more importantly, a truly linear phase response for true-to-life sound. In addition, a symmetrical MTM design (two 3.5” high-performance woofers and 1” high definition tweeter) provides precise, point-source sound to minimize ear fatigue. Its self-calibration is derived from IK’s ARC™ System, with an included reference microphone, and its tilting isolation mount adjusts from 0° to 20° for correct positioning in a wide range of setups.  
About iLoud Micro Monitor 
Available in a choice of black or white, these ultra-compact, high quality reference studio monitors offer the smallest active studio reference monitoring system in the world. iLoud Micro Monitor provides ultra-accurate, transparent, true linear frequency response with no coloration in every listening environment, especially home and project studios. iLoud Micro Monitor is comprised of two extremely portable, high-performance bi-amped speakers that deliver a combined 50W RMS of power for solid bass, plenty of headroom and a defined stereo image for recording, editing, mixing or mastering audio, editing video, sound designing or gaming. 
How to obtain 
A serial code for the T-RackS Metering Suite will automatically be added to each registered user’s User Area on the IK website, and new users will receive an e-mail with instructions upon registering their iLoud Micro Monitor or iLoud MTM.  Existing users who have already registered one of these products can visit their User Area now to view their serial and download the installer.

“With a great pairing of effects, touch controls, a 16-step sequencer, and a ton more – you can build your own loops, store them, and develop an entire drum section with only this tiny unit in your hands.” 

IK Multimedia has surely made something special with this one.

“This unit is perfect as an addition to a live set-up consisting of synthesizers, drum machines, pedals, and more – and you can add this extra analog goodness for a great price.”

Dream Theater and the V7 MC1

sE was recently sent this wonderful email by James ‘Jimmy T’ Meslin, the Monitor Engineer for Dream Theater, letting them know that they’ve been using the V7 MC1 on James Labrie’s vocals for a while now. Thanks for trusting the V7 MC1, Jimmy (and James)!

“The V7 MC1 capsule is an unbeatable value. During rehearsals with Dream Theater, we had four different capsules to test drive with singer, James Labrie. The decision was easy and unanimous as to which capsule sounded best, so we went ahead and bought four V7’s that day.”

“The tone of the capsule feels extremely natural, giving you loads of body and clarity before reaching for an EQ. On stage, it is extremely forgiving and musical in dealing with ambient instruments, noises and room reflections.”

“The V7 MC1 has made my job easier by delivering the goods needed to keep the artist and the audience smiling. Cheers to sE for the solid workmanship, support, and unbeatable price points.”

“Absolutely no-nonsense, straight to the point and game-changing” has been taking a close look at AXE I/O, courtesy of session guitarist and guitar tutor Leigh Fuge. He answers his own question: “Has IK Multimedia found a way to create an interface which stands out from the pack? Absolutely.”

Here are some of his key comments:

“With its analogue style topology, seamless AmpliTube integration, built-in tuner and bundled recording software and plugins, this could be a worthy investment to get your recording career off to a flying start.”

“The AXE I/O’s spec sheet is very impressive indeed. Offering a sample rate of up to 192kHz and a 3Hz-32kHz frequency response, this unit can capture every nuance of your instrument.”

“It quickly becomes apparent that the AXE I/O is a one-stop shop for anyone starting to record in their bedroom or for the professional guitarist on the road looking to take a studio with them.”

“The unit is easy to set up, and even if you’ve never used this sort of product before, you can get stuck into some serious recording time in no time.”

“One of our favourite features is the easy integration with AmpliTube. The unit has a preset knob on the front, which allows you to scroll through presets you’ve created, meaning you can control your virtual rig without having to click between presets with the mouse.”

Leigh’s final verdict is pretty definite:

“Overall the AXE I/O is absolutely no-nonsense, straight to the point and game-changing for guitar players looking to record direct into an interface. And the sounds are wonderful.” awards AXE I/O 9 out 10 score

GarageBand & Beyond Reviews iLoud MTM

“I think they’re worth every single penny.”

GarageBand & Beyond has been a long-time fan of our iLoud Micro Monitors.  After the relese of the iLoud MTM studio monitors, we had to catch back up with “YouTube’s longest running and most trusted channel dedicated to home recording tutorials” to see how they like our newest product release.  Complimenting the strong low end, the impressively wide stereo imagine, the ARC callibration system, and more, GarageBand & Beyond commends the iLoud MTM speakers for their user-centered design.  Here are some highlights from the review below.

“The high end of these I like much better than my 8-inch monitors. These have all that clarity but are not as brash to my ears…the high end of these — really, really nice.”

A really well thought out product.

“It’s the stereo imaging that was one of the first thing I noticed…really, really, impressive stereo imaging.”

“What I love about the iLoud series in general; they are making these things with the home recording artist specifically in mind.”

“I like them, I think they’re worth every single penny.”
