Mix Magazine on Precision MTM

IK Multimedia's new iLoud studio monitors go under the microscope

In its recent review, Mix Magazine examines iLoud Precision MTM monitors. From setting up the speakers to using X-MONITOR software for different speaker emulations, Mix Magazine's Mike Levine concludes that Precision MTM studio monitors make it easy to get better results than other studio monitors.

Here are some highlights and a link to the full review below:

IK Multimedia has created a compelling product with these monitors. They're compact, robust and versatile. Their ability to emulate so many different monitor types means they could efficiently serve as the only monitor pair in your studio.

Mix Pros:

  • Impressive bass response.
  • Excellent clarity in the midrange and highs.
  • ARC room-calibration system is fast and easy, and mic is included.
  • Multiple monitor emulations available.
  • Small footprint.
  • Comes with isolation pods for decoupling.

If I were starting a studio anew or replacing older monitors, the iLoud Precision MTMs would be high on my wish list.

Mix Magazine

"I used the iLoud Precision MTMs as my primary monitors for about a month, working on several mixes and recording a few new songs during that time.

I was pleased with how my mixes turned out. They were well-balanced and translated successfully to external playback systems.

Mix Magazine

"Although I preferred the default Precision Voice, with the ARC on, I found it helpful to compare my mixes on various monitor Voices.

I thought these monitors sounded good even before calibrating them with ARC, but once I A/B'ed the uncalibrated and calibrated sound, I noticed that the latter offered significantly better clarity and significantly less lower-midrange resonance.

Mix Magazine

"The monitors provided impressive frequency response, with powerful bass, full and warm midrange and clear highs. IK credits the precise time alignment (possible with the built-in DSP) as a significant reason for the clarity of the sound—and hearing is believing."
