IK Multimedia is proud to announce iLoud MTM is now shipping! iLoud MTM offers a true phase-coherent response and incredible stereo imaging for unbelievably realistic, natural sound like you’ve never heard.

With a flat response from 40 Hz to 24 kHz, highs are neutral and defined, mids are clear and balanced, and lows are surprisingly deep. Precise, point-source performance means you can mix for hours without ear fatigue.


iLoud MTM adjusts to any room in seconds, with auto-calibration derived from ARC System and an included room analysis mic, so you can be sure the work you do translates better than ever.


iLoud MTM leverages IK’s two decades of DSP experience to offer a true phase-coherent response. You’ll hear instruments and dialogue as if it’s happening live and discover more detail in your tracks than ever before.

This linear-phase response is rarely found in speakers even several times iLoud MTM’s price and has to be heard to be appreciated.


iLoud MTM uses a symmetrical design, with a pair of 3.5” high performance woofers and one 1” high definition tweeter, to provide ultra-precise, point source sound that can’t be achieved by 2-way systems at close distances.

This minimizes the ear fatigue caused by traditional 2- or 3-way designs, so you can mix longer and with less effort.


IK’s new Physical Response Linearization (PRL™) system uses a precise model of the enclosure’s design to correct the system’s performance in real-time. The result is a stunningly “firm,” balanced and defined low end, 
all the way down to 40 Hz.
