Loud and Clear
The iLoud speaker is indeed very loud. In fact, it’s 2 to 3 times louder than comparable size speakers – a blasting 40W RMS of power. But iLoud is extremely clear at all volume levels thanks to an onboard DSP processor and a bi-amped 4-driver array of high efficient neodymium loudspeakers, that provide accurate, even response across the entire frequency spectrum for unbelievable realism of sound. For deep bass response iLoud’s bass-reflex allows frequencies to go down to 50hz, an amazing low end for this small enclosure.

iLoud is the ideal speaker for musicians and audiophiles who demand an accurate reproduction of a wide range of musical styles from rock, hip-hop and electronic dance music, to more nuanced and sonically demanding genres like jazz, classical and acoustic.

Ultra-Portability
About the size of an iPad and only 6cm (2.3″) thick, iLoud fits easily into a laptop bag or backpack. iLoud is powered by a high-performance Li-ion rechargeable battery with smart power-management features that reduce its power consumption so that it can be used for up to 10 hours without recharging. This makes iLoud the perfect portable speaker solution for mobile musicians.

Wired and Wireless
iLoud supports Bluetooth operation for wireless audio streaming anywhere and everywhere from a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android smartphone or tablet for casual listening. For sound sources like MP3 players that do not have Bluetooth capabilities, the iLoud also has a stereo 1/8″ mini-jack input for connecting line-level devices such as home stereos, DJ gear, mixers, MP3 players, and more.

Plug and Play Convenience
iLoud also offers the ability to connect a guitar, bass or dynamic microphone directly to the speaker and process the sound with a multitude of real-time effects apps on iOS devices. It features the same circuitry as IK’s iRig – the most popular mobile interface of all time – and allows users to plug in guitars or other instruments and access AmpliTube or other audio apps on their mobile device for practicing, performing and recording. The input also accommodates dynamic microphones, making it possible to run an app like IK’sVocaLive for real-time vocal effects and recording.

Pricing and Availability
iLoud is priced at $299.99/€239.99 (excl. tax) and is available now from the IK network of music and electronic retailers around the world.

It’s The iRig, Ya Dig? …..Keys That Is

iRig-KEYS in the Box
When I think of lightweight, portable and pleasantly surprising quality sound I gotta think of IK Multimedia’s iRig Keys. It’s a plug-and-play convenient 37-velocity-sensitive mini-Key MIDI Keyboard, with iOS dock connection compatible to the PC (Windows XP (SP3),Windows Vista (SP1), Windows 7 or later) / Mac (OS X 10.5 or later), iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. There’s nothing better than using a MIDI that feels comfortable so in a since it can also be called the iComfortable (Note to self: If IK Multimedia makes a device called iComfortable make sure you are a part of the developmental process). You can effortlessly scroll through presets, move up and down the octaves, and optional plug-in for a sustain pedal.

iRig is a beautiful addition to your recording session. It comes with two free apps from App Store; such as the iGrand Piano, and Sample Tank for iPhone or iPad and to not to make the PC/Mac user feel lonely the stand-alone and plug-in sample workstation with 2GB (but for $9.99 you can upgrade and will include 135 instruments whereas the free app has 20 instruments) of samples Sample Tank 2 L is easy to download from the IK User Area. Sample Tank works well with Abelton Live, Pro Tools, GarageBand, Cubase and Logic.
