"I really would not have thought they'd be this good"
"These speakers are not just loud but they sound really good. They do sound amazingly balanced, clear and with presence which is reflected in a clean stereo image. Even the bass is very compelling."

“MODO BASS is a huge success and illustrates that modeling can sound just as good as sampling, if not better. The note repetition is way more accurate and natural than sample-based instruments that need to resort to round robins. It allows you to achieve exactly the bass sound you need and it does it with incredible simplicity.”
"Sets the benchmark for all other micro-amps to follow"
"By thinking big, the iRig Nano Amp has set a benchmark for all other micro amps to follow and proves that good things really do come in small packages."
Crowned with 6/6 rating and Recommended award
"Small but wow! During our test, we really got the feeling that the laws of physics had been suspended. Considering the minuscule dimensions of the speakers the bass range is stunningly distinct. The responsive and warm and round sounding bass surprised us very positively in our test."
Crowned as the very best mastering product of 2016
The Editor's Choice Awards are the biggest recognition that Professional Audio magazine bestows on the very best of the best products they have tested and processed through their labs over the whole year. Lurssen Mastering Console was a clear winner!
"As a real sweetener to this deal I get free download of full versions of AmpliTube 4 for Mac and AmpliTube for iOS"
Macworld Australia's expert reviewer Keith White has given iRig HD 2 a workout and is pretty impressed: "PROS: Professional quality signal processing; impressive array of output options; rugged compact design; free AmpliTube."
Artist Ilan Rubin from "NIN" and "The New Regime"
“AmpliTube Max is the most extensive amp and effects modeling plugin I have ever used, by far. The tweakability of every single parameter you can possibly think of from amp, pedal, cabinet, speaker, microphone, microphone placement, room, and end of the chain processing gives you a truly infinite workspace to explore. Plus, when you're playing officially licensed models of amps by Fender®, Ampeg®, Orange®, and more, it gives you an extra confidence with the authenticity.”
Making the song, “Ski Resort 87” for video game: Drift Stage
Check out the viral video that just hit the internet from GearGods.net and GuitarWorld.com, about recording a song in a moving car for a car-racing video game in production, called "Drift Stage". MYRONE recorded the guitar track while cruising down the Pacific Coast Highway in California, USA. "I've had more problems with other interfaces in big budget studios than I had with the iRig HD 2 in a car speeding down the highway. It was literally plug and play right out of the box with zero hassle. I was so relieved that I ended up nailing the performance on the first take, on my iPhone!"

In this extensive video review/tutorial, Studio One Expert checks out IK’s MODO BASS. “I think it is a very, very powerful bass VI! It’s easy to use, and it gives you great sounding, flexible basses where no one would be able to spot the VI versus using a great sounding bass player in the mix. I really like it a lot and I give it a big thumbs up.”

SampleLibraryReview.com's review of IK's new bass virtual instrument
“When I got the final version of MODO BASS to review, it didn’t take long to figure out that IK Multimedia has just changed the game when it comes to modeled instruments. MODO BASS is just simply AMAZING in every way! ONE plugin that models the crème de le crème of historic basses, with the ability to control strings, electronics, signal chain, playing style and MIDI control.”
IK’s mobile music interface delivers superior design and quality
"We were very impressed with IK Multimedia's original iRig Pro when it came out two years ago — it's an accessory that does an excellent job of blending functionality from the company's prior iRig PRE XLR microphone interface, iRig HD guitar interface, and iRig MIDI adapter into a single unit that was even better than the sum of its parts. IK's iRig Pro DUO ($200), is a unit that adds a second channel to the multi-interface functionality of its predecessor along with a more elegant design and several additional small but useful enhancements."
Harmony-Central's review of IK's mobile music creation interface

MusicRadar announces the verdict of annual Best Gear readers poll
Back in November, MusicRadar readers were asked to vote for their favourite new monitor speakers of 2016. The results just came in and iLoud Micro Monitor joins the winning finalists: "Other manufacturers will have to go some to come up with a more attractive option than this."
"Very impressive and complete and far ahead of any sampled bass"
"Choose a bass, set it up the way you like and play a note, and it sounds just like it should. A P-bass with high action and old flatwounds sounds right, and a Thunderbird with roundwounds does too. The instrument is also very naturally responsive and flexible to dynamics."
"Impeccable. Not a single sign of noise or buzz."
"We even recorded a clean bass line on our iPhone SE and it ended up in a pro mix. The sound guy had just good comments about it. It is a really serious tool. Impeccable. Not a single sign of noise or buzz."
"With this sound definitely worth the money"
"iLoud Micro Monitor shines with a full, well-balanced sound which is absolutely compelling for this size of speakers - they sound considerably "bigger" than they are. They are genuine mobile monitors which are definitely suitable for listening and acoustic analysis of any musical material."
