GRAMMY-winning producer and engineer Luke Wooten took iLoud MTM into his studio to put them to the test against his collection of other monitors. Looking for a replacement to his previous monitors, he spent a week with iLoud MTM and collected his thoughts below.
"They are tiny! You could literally pack them in a carry on bag and still have room for all of your clothes. I placed them in the spot where I usually have the Genelecs and they are literally 1/3 the size but… they sound 3x bigger."
"The bass on the MTMs is noticeably MUCH larger and more well defined than either the NS-10s or Genelecs. This was out of the box and without using the calibration tool. After using the calibration mic, the bass felt even slightly bigger/lower."
"So often, clients will want to come in and part their hair with a mix, but these monitors make sure that you are listening at a reasonable volume and can make well informed decisions."
I have noticed a significant reduction in listening fatigue since I have been using them and have actually been much more productive as a result.
"I absolutely want to get them in our other two studio’s as well as my listening room at the house because I am blown away!"
I imagine it won’t take any time at all for these monitors to become the gold standard in small near-fields.
